(The Five Thirty Eight) There will now be at least nine participants in Novembers Democratic debate! On Thursday Sen. Amy Klobuchar earned 3 percent support in a new Quinnipiac University national poll. It was the final piece of the puzzle she needed to qualify for the debate which will be held on Nov. 20 in Georgia. As a reminder the Democratic National Committees qualifying criteria for the fifth debate require candidates to get at least 3 percent support in four national or early-state 1 polls sponsored by a DNC-approved organization or at least 5 percent in two early-state polls. 2 Candidates also need contributions from at least 165000 individual donors (including at least 600 individual donors from each of 20 states or territories). 3 Nine candidates have made the November debate so far Democratic presidential candidates* by whether and how they have qualified for the fifth primary debate as of Oct. 24 *For candidates considered major" by FiveThirtyEight. To qualify for the fifth debate a candidate must reach 3 percent in at least four national or early-state polls or 5 percent in at least two early-state polls from qualifying polling organizations. Candidates must also have at least 165000 unique donors including at least 600 donors in at least 20 states or territories. We rely on self-reported figures from the campaigns for candidates fundraising numbers and weve assumed that candidates who have reported having at least 165000 donors also have at least 600 donors in 20 states or territories.
