  4. Think Tank 1110am Green Party & Libertarian Party Candidates

    Audio

    Thu, 25 Aug 2016

    Should the Green Party & Libertarian Party candidates be allowed to debate? Should the Commission on Presidential Debates reconsider their policy of allowing only candidates who have an average of 15% in the 5 national polls into the fall debate? Using this model only Clinton & Trump will be allowed to take the stage, excluding Gary Johnson (the Libertarian Party) who has 8.8% and Jill Stein (the Green Party) with 3.4%. What if voters want to hear all points of view so they can make an educated decision? Pew Research Center took a survey in June. They found that 4 in 10 voters think neither Clinton nor Trump would make a good president. They also found that voters are frustrated with the two-party system. Another poll by USA Today & Suffolk University found that 54% of voters want third party options. What do you think? Include all candidates in the debates or not?
