1. Would like to see more debates - can't have too much democracy - but, can live with one a month.

7. Even if they are, with a limit of twenty, someone who didn't make the cut this time...

 

...could surpass them in qualifications and knock them out of the top 20 and off the stage.

3. I would personally like to see 4 or 5% in three qualifying polls for the next debate.

 

Or 6 to 8% in two qualifying state polls.

5. More debates can only help

 

The more our candidates get to go before the public and lay out our issues, the more those candidates and issues creep into the daily life of people who aren't as politically aware.

Democrats will always win on issues and real issues are complex so having multiple opportunities to present our positions over a longer period of time works in our favor.

6. This is how I see it too! The more debates, the easier it will be to choose our nominee. n/t
