Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Mon Aug 26, 2019, 08:32 AM

 

Only 2 more days to qualify for September debate.

Right now, we only have 10, which if it stands, would mean only one night instead of two.

11. I would too.

 

And I would like to see Tom Steyer in the debates. He deserves a chance to make his case to the voters.

16. I present the argument that by not qualifying for the debate, he is making his case to voters.

 

When Beto and Joe entered the race, they started with high polling numbers, because they built excitement about their campaign, so far Steyer is not doing that.

17. But he is doing that according to a series of Morning Consult polls.

 

Week after week he is doing well in the early primary and caucus states.

He is outperforming other candidates who did not do as well in those polls, including Corey Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Beto O'Rourke and Tulsi Gabbard in the most recent one.

And he cracked 2 percent in three other polls.

He deserves to be in the debates IMO.

3. 10 is plenty, and I'm impressed that Yang made it

 

20 over 2 nights was find for the first 2 summer debates. It's time for one-night debates with fewer candidates as we get closer to the first primary elections.

It would be interesting if Republicans had debates so Walsh and Weld can divide up Trump's votes and wipe that smug smirk off his face.

4. The republicans need to raise the money and get on ballots

 

Especially in places where they need petition signatures. I'm not convinced they can do it.

13. The Debate Tracker on Twitter makes it sound like that's probably it for the September debates.

14. Expect a lot of the others to complain about the rules.

 

I know Bullock will.
