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.

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.

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.

I don't see how anybody could reasonably hold to this opinion given the current political climate. Right now, congress has as little support as it's ever had in its history. There is political gridlock unlike anything we've ever had. We have movements on the right (Tea Party) and movements on the left (OWS) that are taking to the streets. And were in a financial crisis unlike anything we've ever faced - with more just around the corner given the way the deck is stacked. To top that off, libertarianism is on the rise and is proving to be an influential point of view.

Makes no sense to me that someone could argue that Gary Johnson has no place in the debates. Who has better justification than the nominee of the third largest political party in America? It blows my mind that people would actively seek to disenfranchise large swaths of people, and purposefully narrow the conversation in this country right now. "We're in a crisis! Why don't we ONLY listen to the parties that got us here." Pretty stupid.

The third largest is tiny. If you let in the third, why not the fourth? If he could manage a small amount of support, he could get in, its as simple as that. At this point, the debates shouldn't be mucked up with people who have absolutely no chance of winning (although they are still allowing Mitt to participate).

Who is being disenfranchised? His supporters are still allowed to vote.
