Curious what the thoughts are behind Tulsi Gabbard, listening to the Joe Rogan podcast with her on it. Some interesting viewpoints that I have to agree with

DoA bid given her previous stance on LGBTQ lifestyle, legislation, and even working for anti-gay organizations. Not sure what her other positions are but that alone will probably keep her from gaining serious momentum.

I hadn't heard of her until your mention of her. Will have to listen to that podcast though as I like the excerpt I saw where she berated the Clinton's speaking tours. Going to have a very large hill to climb though.

NYC mayor Bill De Blasio in the race, we are at 24 participants.

As far as Tulsi Gabbard is concerned, she has definitely changed her stances as of recently to fit the left wing agenda more thoroughly, which won't really play well to the national audience.

My in-laws live in Hawaii and I asked them about her and their comment was, "Pretty sure she's running simply to gain name recognition for the post election cycle". Who knows, but I wouldn't doubt that she might not be the only one in this crowded field thinking I can really make some money off this when all the dust settles.

Due to the large number of primary contestants, the DNC has raised the standards that must be met for a candidate to participate in the third debate, hosted by ABC, scheduled for Sept. 12.

Looks like:
-Polling numbers must be at least 2% in four different polls (Doubled from the criteria for the first two debates)
-Donations from at least 130,000 individuals donors (Doubled from the criteria for the first two debates)
-Donations from 400 unique donors in at least 20 different states

These criteria will also be in place for the fourth debate in October.

As of right now it looks like these candidates meet the criteria:

-Joe Biden
-Bernie Sanders
-Elizabeth Warren
-Kamala Harris
-Amy Klobuchar
-Corey Booker
-Pete Buttigieg
-Beto O'Rourke

This would really pare down the field in the debates come the fall unless some of the others start making moves.

Thoughts?

I for one am glad to see it. The voter can not keep the platforms of 20+ candidates straight. At least not with still maintaining a job, family life, etc. It's information over load.

This will also weed out the candidates who have literally no chance. Not sure why some of them even take a shot unless it's just for future name recognition (or to sell a book).

I’m interested to know if any of you that tend to vote for left leaning candidates if you’re actually enthusiastic about Biden, other than he may be able to unseat Trump?

Here's a fantastic & smart Podcast to listen to that is 100% dead-on on Biden:

Joe Biden Would be a Disaster

I’ve really been impressed by Elizabeth Warren over the past couple of months. She’s clearly putting in more effort than anyone else and has been doing in amazing job at the town hall appearances. More plans than anyone else. I did a little reading up and saw that she had apparently won the state debate championship and won a debate scholarship at age 16. I’ll be watching to see how she fares on Wednesday in the first debate.
