Sorry to tell you, but they will not let her in. At the beginning of July they said they would commission a poll to determine who would be in their debate. They said before the poll you would need at least 10% to participate. Chelene pulled 1% of the vote. If she had been at 5% or something more, she might have a shot. But not with that showing.

California is at the forefront of eliminating all Parties but the Republicrats. No surprises here. Actually, we are getting close to eliminating the Republicans too. We may soon have general elections that are nothing but a choice between two Democrats.

And how can they even pretend that this is a scientific or unbiased poll? The conditions of the poll guarantee that only the Democrat and Republican will make it. They don't give any publicity at all to any other Parties or candidates.

Third party candidates are great, but unless they come into the race with either a huge amount of resources and/or name recognition (e.g., what Jesse Ventura did in Minnesota, or what Tom Tancredo is trying to do in Colorado), they have almost no chance.

We need to focus on people who have a reasonable chance to win.

Jerry Brown or Meg Whitman. That's a choice? Yes, this would be a protest vote.

We're talking about sending an e-mail here, not donating money.

No. I love the idea of more than two parties, but we have a problematic system of voting. The only independent/third party candidates that stand a chance are people with money, fame, or a lot of political experience.

Yep, she doesn't have a chance of winning. But getting her into the debate would be nice.

Of course it would. But better to spend your resources sending emails to help candidates that stand a chance.
