Approved DNC Pollsters

To qualify to participate in the first DNC Debates, candidates must meet at least one of two requirements: receive donations from at least 65,000 unique donors with a minimum of 200 donors in at least 20 different states OR receiving at least 1 percent support in three different DNC-approved polls either national or from one of the early voting states, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, or South Carolina. Any candidate’s three qualifying polls must be conducted by different organizations, or if by the same organization, must be in different geographical areas.
