The high number of Democrats who are running in the 2020 presidential election and hoping to take on President Trump in the general election has made competition fierce. Many of these Democrats aren’t doing very well either and their standing in the polls show this.
Well, it turns out that certain criteria have to be met in order for candidates to make it on the primary debate stage. These criteria regard having at least 1% in the polls or contributions from at least 65,000 unique donors.
Several Democrats don’t fall into these criteria and will therefore not make it on the upcoming primary debate stages. The candidates who have failed to make the cut aren’t all too happy, either, reports Fox News.
Why Many Candidates aren’t Making it
The field of Democrats is too crowded. This in and of itself is a very notable reason behind why so many candidates are pulling in 0% and are virtually unknown in the press. Media can only cover so many candidates and campaigns at once. There is only so much of the pie to go around. Within the coming weeks and months, it’s virtually guaranteed that many current candidates will simply drop out of the race.
Failure to make it to the primary debate stage is a major blow for any candidate who is serious about campaigning and getting their messages out there to the country. The Democrats who aren’t able to make it on the debate stage will likely be the first ones to drop out of the race.
Thus far, Democrats who will be participating in primary debates include Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, Beto O’Rourke, Julian Castro, Tulsi Gabbard, and Jay Inslee.
Does it Really Matter?
At the end of the day, which particular Democrats make it on the stage is not all that important. However, watching what’s happening as candidates try to claw their way to taking on President Trump is very revealing. It’s a shining example of what’s happening in the Democrat Party.
No matter which candidate makes it on the primary debate stage and takes on President Trump in 2020, the facts remain. The Democrat Party has become the party of extremism and far-leftism and that’s not what the American people want. This ideology may win a nomination for one Democrat candidate…but it will never will a general election.
