Just checking. Some of the opinions on Pelosi (here and elsewhere) are seriously based in this sort of emotional knee-jerk us-vs-them mode.
I'm confident with my opinion that Pelosi is being incompetent and has shown poor political instincts, but no, I am not seriously suggesting what you were reading at face value.

They may actually make it, which would be quite the impressive feat
Yes. That’s what makes it a waste of money. He could’ve just bowed out and been this year’s Lawrence Lessing, but now he’s wasting peoples actual money to get on the debate stage and distract from actual serious candidates.

That's a qualifying poll (cc: Yang, Beto)
Booooooooooooooooooooo

We need fewer people in the September debates dangit!!! Yang already has the donor requirement. So that's 3 or fewer more polls needed and he's in September too.

Is there a running list of the qualifying polls thus far somewhere? I'd love to see the standings.

The one-percenters.

No Gillibrand, which means she got... 0%.

She really needs to drop out. It's just not gonna work.

I can think of few things more useless than polling people on their possible future decisions and potential changes of mind. As if people could possibly answer that.

That's including this NBC/WSJ poll.

For those like me who couldn’t remember, the Republicans held 7 kids table debates, all the way into January 2016.

Dems will almost certainly be down to one debate by September. Probably for the best, though.

Beto hanging in there. Even if he qualifies for Sept: if he doesn't show improvement in the next debate he should really consider calling it quits. But it's interesting that Warren's recanted on the ICE ordeal and taken a position more like Beto's. Warren and Castro are smart in framing 1325 as a bill written by a segregationalist to put pressure on Biden; it's a really good smokescreen for the "open borders" backlash, but I don't think it's enough to clear the runway for the GE. But I'm probably being myopic since I've been following this shit since February. I don't know how much of the country is paying attention.
