Gabbard Accuses ‘Arbitrary’ DNC of Rejecting Poll From Accepted Pollster

The Democratic National Committee is refusing to accept a poll that shows Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) at six percent, according to the Democratic presidential contender.

The committee, known as the DNC, has recognized Suffolk University as one of the accepted pollsters for debate qualifying purposes when it carried out a poll for USA Today but the committee declined to accept a Suffolk poll conducted for the Boston Globe, Gabbard’s campaign said.......

.........Gabbard already has three qualifying polls, including an Emerson University poll also released this week that shows her with six percent support. If the Suffolk poll is counted, she would be assured a spot in the debate because she has already met the fundraising requirements.
Classic GIGO. Democratic National Committee believes that if it can control the inputs, it will control the outputs.

Can you imagine if any other party were engaged in this type of behavior how it would be treated? The DNC is literally pulling a George Wallace and standing in the school house door of the DNC debates.

How can this be defended especially after DNC meddling in 2016 stopped Sanders and potentially gave Trump the election?

Everyone gets to qualify (or not) according to the same rules, which were published well over a month ago.

Somehow this becomes an attack on democracy itself in your alt-world.

Thanks for the concern, though. :)

Wut ....

The polls are being manipulated?

Who'd of ever thunk ....
Pretty clear that many of the Dems want Gabbard out of the race sooner rather than later.

Didn't Hillary call her a "Russian Asset".

No facts or evidence needed.

If Hillary said it, then it GOTS to be true!

Everything about the Left is a fabricated LIE.

This is just another example.

Who cares?

Really? False outrage doesn't suit you.....oh, but then again, it is you.

Yes HRC said she was an useful idiot of the Russians. She can back that up. As do a handful of Trump appointees for the very same reasons.

But again, who cares? She is so unimportant as to be lint on my coat.

I personally like her but she made her own political bed by chatting with Assad, which was stupid and unpatriotic -- regardless of however many soldiers she bandaged from combat.

She has a viable platform, just not on the presidential scale. I value her feedback but not her judgement -- which is suspect at best.

Either you as a Congressperson are 'all in' with American objectives on an international stage or you're an egoist naive know it all who doesn't know how to leverage costs.

Fuck her and her Assad loving ideas. She claims there weren't barrel bombings across Alleppo. Something even the most hearty "communists" in Britain won't do.

She is an Useful Idiot.
But a very smartly dressed, pretty one.

When do the RNC debates start?

Forgot to link the the article...

Why do you think they would accept the same pollster for one newspaper but not for another newspaper?

I mean if a poll is credible shouldn't it be credible in both cases regardless of who picked up the check?

When do the RNC debates start?
Since there is a strong incumbent I doubt they will happen.
