Despite numerous "non-qualifying" polls of 5% or higher and 16 million raised last quarter, Andrew Yang misses out on the January debate. As a democrat and Yang supporter, I am very disappointed with the DNC. It took backlash from rejecting Yang's request for more qualifying polls for the DNC to finally put them out. And with just days before the cut-off, It made it very unlikely that Yang would qualify.
Taking into consideration the media bias against Yang, especially by MSNBC, and having the lowest speaking time out of every candidate on the debate stage, even less than candidates he was polling higher than. It just strongly comes off that there was something going on behind the scenes to keep Yang off the stage. It reminds me of what they did to Bernie back in 2016.
It's a shame to see the party reduced to this and I will be switching from Democrat to Independent after the Democratic Primaries.
