It is well-have a look in the race for the democratic presidential nomination.

Three White house hopefuls called it quits in the past two weeks, and the litter scoop of the 2020 field could continue this week, as it is all but certain that around half of the remaining candidates will fail, in order to set the stage for the next month, the third round of the nationwide televised primary debates.


The deadline to achieve the qualification thresholds laid out by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) Wednesday.

“The debates force the candidates to decide whether they are useful or not resume,” veteran democratic strategist Jesse Ferguson said. “The debates to be expected that the decision, the front-and-center for the candidates and to force you, whether you a path to victory.”

In the past two weeks, former Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado, Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington, and Rep. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts, all of the fell race from the White house. All three immediately went to down ballot races. Hickenlooper launched a bid for the democratic Senate nomination in Colorado, while Inslee and Moulton announced the re-election, the proposals for their respective offices.


Although there is a strong chance of other long shots can also bow out later this week, others will give their candidacy a month. The criteria to make the cut, which is for October, the fourth round of the debate is the same as the third, which reach the downstream candidates for another month, the debate stage.

“I would like to see how the candidates stay – at least until the fourth debate, because there is a good chance some of them will qualify for October and I hope that some of you do, so people have a chance to see you,” said Kathy Sullivan, a DNC member from New Hampshire. “There are some really good candidates, present either in late or not have the coverage that some of the others have, I would love to see how you have the chance.”

But Sullivan, a former state Democratic party chair, admitted that “at some point, of course, in the vicinity of the end of the year, people have a good check on money and whether or not you have the ability to move on to.”


Ten candidates have already qualified to the stage for the third and fourth debates. You are Biden former Vice-President, Joe; sen. Cory Booker from New Jersey; South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg; former housing and urban development Secretary Julian Castro; Sens. Kamala Harris in California and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, former Rep. Beto O’rourke of Texas; Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

Billionaire environmental and progressive activist Tom Steyer has reached the fundraising threshold of campaign contributions from 130,000 individual donors, but only briefly register by 2 per cent or higher in four of qualifying polls (he reached that mark in three qualifying surveys). Rep. Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii has hit the donor threshold, and two surveys shy of making the cut.

If Steyer and Gabbard miss the next month of debate, it is a safe bet, in March and qualify for October, the fourth round.


Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York is close to reaching the fundraising threshold, but has only hit two per cent on a qualifying survey. An optimistic Gillibrand told Fox News last week, “I’m not planning on making this round.”

But Gillibrand raised eyebrows by telling Fox News and the Washington Post in separate interviews that they will serve openly as her party’s Vice presidential candidate if her White house bid fails.

“I’m here to serve,” she said. “Can I serve in any capacity.”

Rep. Tim Ryan of Ohio, swears in the vicinity of the qualification for the upcoming debate also, in the race to stay.


To keep going, “we go. We get pulses,” Ryan said Friday.

Former REP John Delaney from Maryland, another of the lower classes, more moderate democratic candidate – she promised emphatically, “I’m going to stay, period.”

Delaney acknowledged that he would not make the third round of the debate, said: “this is wonderful”, and added that “we feel good about the fourth debate.”

While both Ryan and Delaney admitted that you have a chance to speak, the expected million, missing in the next month, the prime-time debate will not help their chances, they also noted that there are still more than five months until the first votes cast in Iowa and New Hampshire are.


“I think that in many ways, this thing is just getting started,” Delaney told Fox News. “The Americans are finally, the dial-in on the Democratic primaries, and I think we have a long way to go.”

Delaney, a multi-millionaire, the self-financing much of his White house bid, not have to worry about running out of campaign cash. But that is not the case with many other more shots.

But Ferguson – who served as a senior spokesman for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign – known in social media, the dynamics for the candidates and their campaigns changed.

“Twenty years ago, once donors decided to take their campaign was not viable, she couldn’t keep the lights on,” he said. “Today, these campaigns have a grassroots donor base, which will enable them to supply themselves and to take advantage of you the ability built, a moment that may or may not come. And in the age of social media, a moment, everything can change. So writes one of these campaigns in advance is a mistake to leave.”

Sullivan also said it is too early to declare that certain candidates are dead in the water – especially the record size of the field and the chaotic campaign cycle.


“The fact that someone can be the numbers are now lower, it does not mean, you have a chance in this thing,” she said.

The field is probably too narrow to be over the next couple of months, some of the candidates, the life will probably never be able and stay around. A Democratic consultant, spoke to Fox News anonymously it out formulated so: “those who should least of all because they are to have running, your microphone is switched on and the voice heard, not because they think they are the nominated go.”
