Some settling for the top six but don't count out the underdogs just yet!
A slew of national polls over the weekend warrant an update to the Real Clear Politics graph:
Trump still leads overall but the Investor's Business Daily poll showed Carson in the lead. Either way the top of the field is Trump, Carson, Fiorina, Rubio, Bush and Cruz.
Expect to see fundraising reports for all the candidates prior to the October 15 deadline that will give a further indication of who might have a better chance to break out in 2016.
The next shakeout should occur following the October 28 debate.
