Open the Polls!
60% of Americans say we need a new major party. But it’s impossible for any party to be seen as viable without being in the debates.
We just learned that of 5 polls used by the Commission on Presidential Debates, 2 of those polls, from Fox News and The New York Times, don’t even offer Jill Stein as an option.
They say Jill needs to poll 15% or higher to get in the debates -- then don’t even include her in the polls. That is the definition of a rigged system. We can’t let them get away with this.
Sign our petition to demand that Fox News and The New York Times include Jill Stein in their polls!
To Fox News and The New York Times:
We, the undersigned, demand that the polls you conduct include all Presidential candidates who have qualified for enough state ballots to be a choice for a majority of voters, including the Green Party’s Jill Stein.
We do not recognize as legitimate the arbitrary criteria set by the Commission on Presidential Debates, a private organization run by the Democratic and Republican parties. However, we demand that your organization, as part of an ostensibly objective media, offer at least offer some semblance of a fair and democratic process.
