Gabbard and Klobuchar hit debate polling thresholds [View all]

Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has qualified for the November Democratic presidential debate and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar has made the December debate after the release of a new Iowa poll, which also featured Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden bunched within 5 points of each other at the top of the field.

Klobuchar got 5 percent support in the Iowa survey from Quinnipiac University released on Wednesday. She previously hit at least 4 percent support in three other polls approved by the Democratic National Committee, according to POLITICO’s tracking, and she has accrued over 200,000 individual donors, the other threshold to make the December debate stage. She had previously qualified for the November debate.

Gabbard made the November stage by getting 3 percent in the new Quinnipiac poll, having previously hit that mark in three other DNC-approved polls, according to POLITICO’s tracking. Gabbard has also accrued the 165,000 donors necessary to qualify for the November debate.

Gabbard will join nine other candidates on the November stage: Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, Klobuchar, Sanders, Tom Steyer, Warren and Andrew Yang.

So far, six candidates — Biden, Buttigieg, Harris, Klobuchar, Sanders and Warren — have qualified for the December debate, which will be co-hosted by POLITICO and PBS.
