Story highlights

  • Jeb Bush's odds for the Republican nomination are at 9%
  • Marco Rubio leads the pack with his odds for the nomination at 40%

Washington (CNN)The Fox Business Republican debate could shake up how each candidate is in doing within the GOP pack and could make or break former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's presidential bid, according to CNN's Political Prediction Market.

Before the Republican debate, Bush's odds to capture the Republican nomination were at 9%.
Bush, who was previously a party favorite for the Republican nomination, performed poorly at the last Republican debate hosted by CNBC on October 28 and has been struggling to keep momentum in his campaign for president.
    A favorite from the last debate was Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who leads the pack with his odds for the nomination at 40%, with real estate mogul Donald Trump at second with 18%.
    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz ties with Bush for third at 9% odds, and Ben Carson's chances are at 7%.
