Second Update: DNC States Tulsi Did Not Get 3rd Qualifying Poll
The DNC has said they are only counting the ABC/Washington Post results for All responders, and therefore Tulsi only got 1%, and that does not count as a qualifying poll.
Very convenient for them.
Edit to add source: here
Update to the original post below:
CBS/YouGov came out with their 4 early state polls, and Tulsi scores 1% in all of them: New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina, and Nevada.
Still, she should have 3 qualifying polls per the report below. Only 1 more needed for the 4th debates!
Today, the Washington Post in conjunction with ABC came out with a national poll showing Tulsi at 2%:
The trick is this--ABC News is reporting Tulsi at 1% at this poll, which is true if you include All poll responders. Washington Post is reporting Tulsi at 2% for the *same poll*, which is true if you include only Registered Voter responders. Will the DNC split hairs and allow this as a qualifying poll for Tulsi? (Let me guess . . .)
Tomorrow, my understanding is that CBS/YouGov, another qualifying pollster, will release polls for all the early states. Tulsi already has a CBS/YouGov qualifying poll from July for New Hampshire at 2% (and if anything, she will likely increase her percentage there), so another one from that pollster in that state won't help her. However, Tulsi has shown some strength recently in Iowa in non-qualifying polls, and has potential to reach 2% there. If so, this would get her a 4th qualifying poll assuming the Washington Post poll stands above. We'll see.
