George Pataki's polling numbers are so low that he doesn't even register in the latest USA Today/Suffolk University Poll of Republican primary voters.

But the former three-term governor of New York tells Newsmax TV he'll continue his bid to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination and looks forward to the third Republican debate Oct. 28 on CNBC.

Even so, with CNBC's rule that candidates must have an average of 3 percent or higher among recognized national polls to participate in the main debate, Pataki is so far banished to the undercard or "kid's table" debate.

But Pataki remains upbeat.

"I hope as people hear my message and understand my record that I'll have a chance to be perhaps in the other debate," Pataki said Thursday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"I understand the top three [Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina] have never held public office and people are anti-Washington.

"So am I, but as we get closer to the primaries, I would hope voters would say, yes, we want someone who's not a Washington insider, who's anti-Washington, but who also has some experience here in running a government because running a government is very different."
