CNN announced 8 town halls in New Hampshire ahead of the February 11 primary and one name stood out: Deval Patrick, who isn’t even polling high enough to make it onto the RCP average:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren
Thursday, February 6:
Sen. Bernie Sanders
Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg
Sen. Amy Klobuchar
Former Gov. Deval Patrickhttps://t.co/RcagfZx9RH

The latest poll has Patrick at 0% in New Hampshire:
A new Emerson poll of New Hampshire Democratic primary voters shows Elizabeth Warren & Status Quo Joe tied for 3rd place. Despite Mass. & NH sharing media markets, Deval Patrick is at zero. Anything else to see in this chart? pic.twitter.com/isFe0PvqQs

Tulsi Gabbard, however, is not getting a CNN town hall but she’s at 5% in the poll above. What gives?
Where is Tulsi Gabbard and why is Deval Patrick there? He hasn't made an impact in a single poll, while Gabbard seems to be of central importance to Dem power-brokers like Hillary Clinton. Bad choices, CNN.

We asked CNN’s PR account hours ago for a response and so far, nada:
