Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Now that Bullock and DeBlasio have announced, seems we have many candidates not included on DU poll

In addition to those two, we never added Seth Moulton, Tim Ryan, Michael Bennett (or Wayne Messam, Mike Gravel, for that matter).

While I don't really think any of those have a chance, DeBlasio will obviously try to make a splash and arguably leaving out a current US Senator (Bennett), while including spiritual author Marianne Williamson seems a little unusual.

Perhaps the software/programming has limits on how many can be included but I just thought I'd ask. With the addition of Bullock and DeBlasio, it looks like we have 26 "notable" announced candidates.

Just curious... anyone think it important to add them?

1. Who is in charge of updating it, the DU admin?

3. I think they only list a candidate if someone asks.

 

So if they are not listed, they must have zero supporters.

4. No one asked for the original listing (i.e., all except Hickenlooper who was specifically requested)

10. Well, they rarely answer questions, so they're likely to not answer this one.

 

I've NEVER had a response to a question asked.

5. I don't think it's necessary to include anyone until they reach a certain % of support.

 

Do you? Or unless there's a clamoring in DU for that candidate.

6. I'm just curious what the policy is. Inslee was added before the threshold...

 

and Marianne Williamson has never met the poll threshold nationally (she's in the debates because of the donor qualification).

13. Who the heck is Marianne Williamson????

 

Candidates are falling out of the woodwork! What the heck is going on?

I don't see anything good coming from so many people entering the race.

15. She's been a candidate included all along. She even has her own group here.

 

No pertinent experience, IMO, but...

7. So if I and my sock puppets demand they list me, they'll do it?

 

I think the race would be much more interesting if a DUer were up there.

12. If you're a candidate, and there's a threshold of support here in DU....yes.

 

But whatever the DU administrators decide. I'm sure they have some rules on it, now that there are so many. Maybe they'll include anyone who announces.

8. No need to add DeBlasio; he's in it for ego. Few here would vote for him.

 

TOO many great candidates to choose from already in the mix
