It seems the DNC has tightened the criteria for people to appear in the September debates. But - how long do the candidates have to meet the criteria? Do they need to meet it now already?
There are two criteria that need to be met in order to qualify for the September 12/13 debates.
Polling: Candidates must achieve at least 2% in at least four qualifying polls, released between June 28 and August 28.
Fundraising: Candidates must receive donations from at least 130,000 unique donors, including at least 400 unique donors from each of 20 different states, by the end of the day on August 28.
No candidates will be able to qualify for another couple of weeks because of the first rule.
