Just a very quick update. The number of new donors Tulsi has gained in the last few days has been accelerating greatly each day. She has now recorded 57,292 unique donors of the 65,000 needed for her to be in the debates. That leaves only 7,708 new donors needed, or 176 new donors per day through May 14. No question she will reach that end goal now.
In other news, another way for Tulsi to gain access to the debates is to win 1% or more in 3 separate early primary/caucus state polls. Emerson took a poll of Nevada over the past few days, and Tulsi came in at 2%, essentially tied with Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar (beating out Gillibrand, Castro, Hickenlooper, and Inslee). Besides the recent Pennsylvania poll I mentioned in my last post where she polled at 3% (but, not an early primary state), the polls this week are showing her bump up above 0%-1% for the first time.
I think Tulsi is beginning to get a bit of notice. Yes, she has a long way to go, but the debates can only help. I'd love to get a new poll from New Hampshire where she has made a couple different trips, the last one having 9 separate stops throughout the state over 3 days (the last time she was polled there, around Feb. 21 before any of her stops, I think, she polled at 0%).
The below is an interesting compilation of independent media, which seems to like her quite a bit.
At her recent appearance in Los Angeles, Jimmy Dore and Niko House (among others) introduced her, and Niko (MCSC Network) endorsed her, which was very cool.
