  1. Where did you come up with the August 15 date? The first debate isn’t until September 23.

      Gary Johnson came up with it as a thing. 15 by 15… It’s a goal. I’m pretty sure it’s not an actual deadline.

    I thought we had until September 10 to accommodate the ridiculous requirements to attend the debate.

    I’ve only heard of two people getting calls and they were only offered Clinton or Trump as options and when they would only answer “Johnson,” the baker hung up on them. So how does he raise poll numbers if they aren’t allowing him to be an answer?

    It’s beyond ridiculous that polls determine this. Pollsters are accountable to no-one, and a lot of what they do is try to guess what turnout model to use. Their models are only correct on the assumption that it will be the same as previously. Besides–if they were flat-out bribed, nobody would ever know.
