Over the last month, however, it became clear that Johnson did not have the polled support of at least 15 percent of the national electorate, one of the commission's three debate participation requirements.
So this is the policy and always has been?

I liked this part

"I've been trying this since 2004 ... and this is first time any sponsor has peeled off from supporting the commission," says George Farah of Open Debates, who wrote the book No Debate: How the Republican and Democratic Parties Secretly Control the Presidential Debates. "For this to happen on the eve of the first presidential debate is a remarkable act."

Secretly? That is hardly the case.

That is, of course, true. But there is a legitimate question that has to be answered about what criteria should be used to admit candidates to the debate. If every 3rd party candidate is included, the stage will be packed and no one will learn about any of the candidates.

Who are the other fringe candidates running this year?

Part of the problem is the media only focuses on the two big parties and not enough on the other parties. ALot of people have no idea other canidates are even running or their viewpoints.

I know there is one guy, Virgil Goode, that is running only in Virginia for the Constitution Party. He has the potential to peel off some votes for Romney and if the state totals are close, could make a difference.

Here is a list of 22 of them. I don't know if it includes every candidate on at least one state ballot or not.

While that is true, I think 15% is too high. Perhaps 3-5%?

If you set it at 3-5%, you could conceivably have the major party candidates polling at a combined 85% and still have a stage crowded with 6 or 7 candidates, which is way too many. I think the goal here is to keep it to two unless a well funded candidate, like Ross Perot in the 90s, has demonstrated the ability to attract a significant following and I think that's a good goal. YMMV

When's the last time a 3rd party earned more than 3% of the total votes in an election, not counting Ross Perot?

The system is ****ing broke in this country and isn't coming back.

Gary Johnson is a waste of time... if he had any business being at the debate, he'd be there - he has no support. There are probably a half dozen others that would have a greater justification for being there.
