On this topic I was wondering, does anyone know when the debates are going to start? And I mean the amusing ones, the ones where Reps and Dems duke it out in a live broadcast. By this time before the 2016 election, those debates had already started so what gives?

Last time had no incumbent, so both sides were scrambling to find a potential candidate. Of course that heats up the battle on both sides.

You are off a year.  The presidential debates started on September 26, 2016.  The election was just 5 weeks later.

Massimus - "Trump already has democrat support."

Poor Gabbard, pretty sure YouGov isn't an approved poll, but it should be. Interesting to see Biden nearly in the teens and only 3 points above Sanders and 5 above Warren. Certainly looks like a three way race to me. I know it's only one poll, but Economist/YouGov is generally pretty good. I continue to see more and more polls showing Biden on a slow downward trend. Also interesting here, Buttigieg is nearly caught up with Harris. He's the less flip-floppy of the two so I wouldn't mind him overtaking her if it's to become a four-way contest.

YouGov counts if sponsored by the right news outlet. The economist is not it.

Jay Inslee just dropped out of the race. Understandable when you promote and fight for a climate change town hall and then don't get invited to it...

He's not backing someone yet, but Bernie and Kamala already congratulated him on his track record in climate change and vowed to take his banner in that regard.

It's interesting to see Inslee drop before candidates with far less donors/polls.

Nope, the presidential debates began in 2015...

But that's just republicans. It's pretty much what we have now with the democrats, just with different people and ideologies.

You asked for the ones where democrats and republicans are pitted against each other. That only happens after both parties have nominated their running team (their presidential and vice presidential candidates), so after each party's national convention. Since those are in summer next year, you are one year off.

True but he said I'm off by a year with the PRESIDENTIAL debates, the Rep debates were presidential debates and those began in 2015, that's why I replied that to him.

As for the ones I asked, yes, I asked for the ones where Dems were pitted against Reps and it seems those started much later as you explain. I guess what I remember is how electric the Rep debates were with Trump attacking everywhere and everyone around him and that's why I'm confused about those not being Reps vs Dems which is where you'd expect electricity going through the show in high voltage.

So I guess I'm going to have to be patient for those.

After that amazing climate plan from Bernie, if Inslee doesn't endorse him, his entire candidacy was a joke.
