In an editorial titled “Presidential Debates 2016: Bigger, Broader, Better,” published earlier today, the Bloomberg editorial staff respond to the Change The Rule/Level the Playing Field proposal to include only ONE additional candidate in the CPD debates. They propose the following alternative:
“[T]he first debate might include all candidates who have qualified for the ballot in a majority of states, with the potential to win 270 electoral votes. The second debate could include only those candidates who receive at least 5 or 7 percent in polls. In the third debate, the polling threshold could be raised to 10 or 12 percent.”
The editorial makes no mention of the Our America Initiative proposal and/or CPD lawsuit.
