Despite the new poll, Steyer will not attend the September debate, which will take place Thursday in Houston. However, Steyer will make its debut on either the 15th or 16th October when the next debate will take place. Steyer's qualification would extend the debate to two nights; The DNC has previously announced that there will be no more than 10 candidates on stage one evening.
Ten candidates will be debating this Thursday: Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Pete Buttigieg, Julián Castro, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar and Beto O'Rourke, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Andrew Yang. All 10 automatically qualify for the October debate – unless they drop out.
The survey in Nevada was published as part of a series of surveys by CBS News in early battlefield states. CBS News also published polls in Iowa, South Carolina and New Hampshire. However, no candidate who has not yet qualified for the October debate received at least 2 percent in one of the early polls.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is the second most likely candidate to qualify for the October debate. He needs two additional qualifying surveys. Gabbard has broken two percent in none of the new CBS / YouGov polls.
ABC News and The Washington Post jointly released a national poll early Sunday morning, but the two news agencies do not seem to have their top position on some numbers for the new poll, which identifies the DNC's qualification. ABC News uses a sample of all adults in its survey, while the Washington Post uses a more restrictive sample of registered voters in its history.
Shortly after the publication, DNC POLITICO announced that the sample would be counted towards all adults for the qualification. In previous surveys by ABC / Washington Post, both outlets have highlighted a sample of adults in their stories, and POLITICO has treated the sample of adults as the first line number qualifying for the qualification.
Qualification for the September debate ended on August 28, leaving Steyer out . This led to Steyer, Gabbard and other candidates who did not qualify for complain about the injustice of the rules for debating qualifications will probably be larger than in the September debate. Those who missed September – like Steyer – had more time to qualify for October. Qualification for the October debate ends on October 1st.
Author Marianne Williamson has previously crossed the donor threshold and received 2 percent in a DNC-approved poll for the September and October debates, the only other candidate in the race to do so. None of the four CBS polls released on Sunday, and also the ABC News / Washington Post national poll, reached 2 percent.
