    I downloaded the .pdf, and it put Gabbard at 2%, same as Castro, and afaik Gabbard had 2% from another relevant poll. But maybe I got that wrong. I’ll see what I can see on her Facebook page. Gabbard is currently deployed with the rest of her Guard unit.

    Damn, my bad for not reading down further.

    The new CNN poll also helped Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii inch closer to debate qualification. Like Mr. Castro, she earned 2 percent support in the poll, leaving her just two surveys short of meeting the D.N.C.’s standard; she has already surpassed the donor threshold. Ms. Gabbard left the trail last week in order to fulfill her obligations with the National Guard, and is scheduled to resume campaign activities this Sunday.

    Sorry all! I was so sure she only needed two national polls to have her at 2%.

    Oh well, at least this is a positive sign.

    If they counted Emerson and I forget which other ones, Tulsi would already be in. So the DNC just doesn’t count them. Guess they can’t not count CNN.

      CNN, ABC, and NBC polls are the only polls that really count per the DNC, and they have suspiciously not released polls since the last debate. DNC is allowing the following corporations to determine who the Democratic nominee is (or is not): Comcast, The Walt Disney Corporation, and Time Warner. These corporations will deny Democratic Socialism at any cost.

      Largest –– NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, and Telemundo are under NBC Universal and owned by Comcast, America’s most hated company. ABC is owned by The Walt Disney Corporation. They also own ESPN, Marvel, Disney Studios, and A&E networks. CNN is owned by Turner Broadcasting which is owned by Time Warner.

    I disagree with her somewhat. I think narrowing the field is a good thing. The problem is with which polls are used being so arbitrary. I have no idea if they announced which polls were going to be used or not (maybe someone can clarify that question), but if they didn’t they sure as hell should have. I think both Gabbard and Castro should be in the debate.

    Also she made a gaffe at the beginning of the video (:23)  saying that the debate was in December and it is in fact in September.
