If you’ll recall, the original 47 Democratic candidates for president were all scrambling before the first round of debates to secure donations of any amount from 65,000 unique donors, as that was a requirement to appear on the debate stage. It was either that or place in one of the Democratic National Committee’s approved polls.

Now, with the third round of debates scheduled and the stage narrowed down to 10 candidates, Rasmussen Reports is again asking just how the DNC decided which pollsters became “approved.” This is a long thread, but it’s interesting to see just how the DNC settled on its list of approved pollsters.

Oh, we remember the polls all right. And how many of them as of today have any of the Democratic front-runners easily beating Donald Trump in 2020?
