As already 21 people have qualified for the July-debates the tiebreaker rules are in effect. And because of that donors alone will not cut it. If he gets the needed donors (and he is close to that, I read 55K has he already) and additionally three polls with 1 percent though, he would be in the safe zone, as a lot of the other candidates who qualify via polls are a far cry from 65K unique donors (Hickenlooper is reported to have 13K).
Would be great if he could do it, I'm sure he would do a great job in the debates.
