The current system of requiring a magic percentage of polling support before including a third party candidate in the debates is a catch 22 for most underfunded 3rd party candidates.

Not only is it an unscientific basis for allowing someone on the stage it has become a way to solidify Democrat & Republican Party views & narratives as the only options available. Although I understand your organization does allow a rather high polling percentage to include these parties it’s a stifling percentage to obtain without having the media coverage available that comes before & after each debate. 

On the face, one would not expect someone within an organization created by joint members of two major political parties to want third party options to even be seen on stage but there are plenty of times this has become beneficial for major party politics and the nation as a whole. By having another voice in the room major political parties will adjust their policies if another candidate can get traction and the real winners will be the American people. If competition and a free market is truly the key to success then why not allow that in our political debates? Please change the debate requirements to mirror the presidential winner requirements itself & allow anyone on enough ballots to win 270 electoral votes a chance to debate.
