Huh. That is a lopsided distribution of names. Night one only has Warren from the better polling persons. Night two has Biden, Sanders, Harris and Buttigieg.

my greatest games: 2017, 2018

Predictions: Switch / Switch vs. XB1 in the US / Three Houses first quarter

I wish americans give a chance to a libertarian, anti-war, pro small government candidate. This bi-partisan concoction of warmongers in DC for decades just made the US debt soar to the current 22+ trillion dollars, anual deficts of 1 billion+ a year.

But as it will never happen, I pray that in next presidential election a crazy MMTer democrat wins(MMT is very popular among dems today). It will sure be the end of the dollar as reserve currency, with hyperinflated dollars, US will no longer be able to sustain its hundreds of overseas military bases, and will have to finally live by their means.

Beto is in night one with Warren.

I don't see Beto as a strong polling candidate anymore. RCP has him currently at 3.5%, Harris nearly doubles that.

UPDATE:

The charts for the first debate nights have been updated.  I've also began the debate qualifications table for the second debate.  Buttigieg, Harris, Sanders and Warren are already qualified via donors. The polling criteria period runs between June 28th and August 28th.

I have to agree with others that it's not very well balanced.  Warren is only big name candidate the first night and I'm sure she's happy about that.  Night two is packed with Biden, Sanders, Buttigieg, Gabbard, Harris and Yang.

No, I understand that, but aren't there two debate nights in June (26/27) referred to as the "1st debate" and two debate nights in July (30/31) referred to as the "2nd debate"?

My point is that the article sounds like the June 26/27 debate is set in stone, but doesn't seem to refer to the July 30/31 debate, which one would presume would come with an extra month to qualify for. The remaining 4 candidates might hang on to try to qualify for that one before dropping out.

I follow you now.

I don't expect them to try to hang on for the second round of debates because qualifications requirements double.

I thought they didn't double until the 3rd debates? Might they compete to get into the second debates, if they have the same requirements, and hope that being in a debate gets them the energy to stay in to the 3rd debates?

Correct. The article I was reading had the error.  They've since corrected it and I updated my charts.

Also correct.  I was reading the tiered drawing system for the first debate which used the doubled requirements to establish which candidates were upper tier and which were lower tier so that they could balance out each night with a mix of both.  The article was worded weird and made it seem like the second debate would have that requirement by default.  But it is, as you said, starting with the 3rd debate.

Well, quite a few candidates, like Gabbard, Warren and Sanders, want to reduce both the military expenses and the interventions, so at least that part could come to happen.

What do you mean with MMT? Modern Monetary Theory?
