January Democratic Debate Info & Betting Odds

Who Qualified For The January Debate?

Six candidates qualified for tonight’s stage after the DNC raised the requirements for the seventh Democratic debate. Tom Steyer was the last to qualify after receiving strong support on the Jan. 10 deadline.

The following is the podium order (from left to right) for the January Democratic debate stage:

  • Businessman Tom Steyer
  • Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren
  • Former Vice President Joe Biden
  • Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders
  • Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg
  • Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar

Who Didn’t Qualify For Tonight’s Stage?

Andrew Yang misses the cut for the first time after some controversy surrounding the DNC’s new polling threshold. Despite knowing very few polls would be conducted because of the Holiday season, the DNC went ahead and raised the requirements. Without a person of color on the stage, the #DebateSoWhite backlash is actually relevant this time around.

  • Businessman Andrew Yang
  • Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard
  • Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg
  • Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet
  • Former Maryland Rep. John Delaney
  • Former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick

What Were the Requirements To Qualify?

Candidates were required to receive 5% in at least four national polls or at least 7% in two early-state polls, both of which had to be pre-approved by the Democratic National Committee. In addition, candidates need to receive donations from 225,000 unique individuals from 20 states.

What Time Does It Start?

The January debate is scheduled to start at 9:00 PM ET.

Where Is It?
