DNC Employs New Rules to Filter Massive 2020 Field into Debates

The historic size of the field is forcing the DNC’s hand.

Published

With two dozen democrats now vying for the 2020 nomination, the embattled DNC has their work cut out for them.

The Democratic National Committee has come under heavy criticism over the course of the last three years after it was determined that they assisted then-candidate Hillary Clinton in “rigging” the primary elections against rival Bernie Sanders.  The rift in 2016 exemplified, and possibly foreshadowed, the chasm that exists today within the democratic party.

Now, with a new guard looking to usurp the establishment figures within the DNC, the 2020 field has blossomed into an unwieldy beast – and that is something that the DNC is being forced to deal with as debate season approaches.

The DNC announced on Wednesday that to qualify for the third round of debates – which they say will be held on September 12 and 13 — candidates must receive two percent or more support in at least four national or early voting state polls recognized by the national party. The threshold for the first two rounds of debates is one percent in three polls.

Trump or Biden, who will win?

To make the third and fourth round – which the DNC says will be held in October – candidates must also receive contributions from a minimum 130,000 unique donors, as well as 400 unique donors in at least 20 states. The 130,000 threshold is double the 65,000 needed to make the debate stage at the first two rounds, and the 400 donors in each state is double the 200 currently needed.

The DNC’s mandating that the candidates clear both the polling and donor thresholds is a switch from the first two rounds, when the contenders only had to hit one of the criteria.

This is a dramatic shift for the organization, and is likely being enacted in order to prevent any further cannibalism out on the campaign trail.

The move comes just a month before the first round of primary debates are set to begin.

Failed Dem Candidate Receives ‘Anonymous’ Racist Letter, Turns Out He Wrote It to Himself

Paging Jussie!

Democrats are the best. It’s as if they honestly believe they can get away with anything, no matter how heinous, asinine, and/or nonsensical. Meet this failed political candidate from Oregon. He must’ve been in contact with Jussie Smollett on this one. From Metro Voice News: In yet another example of a faked hate crime, an Oregon politician has admitted he fabricated the entire thing. Oregon Democrat Jonathan Lopez confessed to penning a racist letter to himself after he initially claimed it was anonymously sent to him, authorities said. Lopez, who is Latino and was a recent Democrat candidate for commissioner in Umatilla County, had originally claimed he found the hate-screed in his mailbox on June 23, the East Oregonian reported. CONTINUED: News outlets and immigrant groups immediately pinned the incident on anti-immigrant sentiment allegedly stirred up by President Donald Trump’s southern border wall. It is one of hundreds of similar incidents blamed on conservatives that later were found to be fabricated, but not before significant national media attention. Jason Edmiston, chief of police in Hermiston, said: “Our investigation has shown that Mr. Lopez wrote the letter himself and made false statements to the police and on social media.” What are the odds this story makes headlines tonight? Imagine if he was Republican, though! Let’s hear your thoughts in the comment section…

Polling Model Expert Says Trump Has 91% Chance of Defeating Biden, Winning 2nd Term

How about them apples?

Joe Biden has no business running for president. Everybody knows this. Everybody. Republicans know. Democrats know. Even Joe knows – who are we kidding? Joe knows. The thing is, it’s not looking good the already twice-failed presidential candidate. From Mediaite: President Donald Trump is almost certain to win reelection in 2020, according to a political science professor whose “Primary Model” has correctly predicted five out of six elections since 1996. “The Primary Model gives Trump a 91 percent chance of winning in November,” Stony Brook Professor Helmut Norpoth told Mediaite Tuesday. He noted that his model, which he introduced in 1996, would have correctly predicted the outcome of all but two presidential elections in the last 108 years: “This model gets it right for 25 of the 27 elections since 1912, when primaries were introduced.” The exceptions include John F. Kennedy’s election in 1960 and George W. Bush’s election in 2000, when Bush won a majority of the electoral college despite losing the popular vote. Trump knows how to troll lefties better than anybody. His latest Executive Order will have all of them up in arms. He doesn’t care. And he shouldn’t. Radical leftists need to learn that actions have consequences. They cannot simply whine and destroy property until they get their way. Law and order matters. Trump said, “I am signing an executive order to establish The National Garden of American Heroes, a vast outdooor park that will feature the statues of the greatest Americans who ever lived.” From Fox News: President Trump on Friday announced the creation of a National Garden of American Heroes to pay tribute to historically significant Americans — a garden that will include former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and baseball star Jackie Robinson among past presidents, anti-slavery advocates and others.
