The large number of declared and prospective Republican presidential candidates in the 2016 election cycle — at least 16 viable candidates by one count (see graphic below) — poses a challenge for the Unit for the Study of Personality in Politics, which aims to release psychological profiles of all debate participants prior to the first GOP debate, presented by Fox News in collaboration with Facebook Aug. 6 in Cleveland.

GOP-polling_2015-May

To qualify for inclusion in the Fox News debate, a candidate “must place in the top 10 of an average of the five most recent national polls by Aug. 4.” (Matea Gold, Fox News rules will limit the field in first GOP presidential debate, Washington Post, May 20, 2015)

The top 10 contenders in the five most recent national polls are former Florida governor Jeb Bush, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, real estate tycoon Donald Trump and former Texas governor Rick Perry, according to a Washington Post analysis.

Former U.S. senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania and Ohio Gov. John Kasich are a fraction of a point behind Perry.

Lagging behind those 12 are Sen. Lindsey O. Graham of South Carolina, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Hewlett-Packard chief executive Carly Fiorina and former New York governor George Pataki.

For the second GOP debate Sept. 16 at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif., CNN plans to split the candidate forum into two parts — “one featuring the top 10 candidates in public polling and a second that will include lower-tiered candidates who garner at least 1 percent in polls,” according to the Washington Post.

The status of USPP psychological profiling research with respect to GOP candidates, rank-ordered below by current [May 31, 2015] standing in opinion polling, is as follows:
