The presidential democratic debates for 2020 to be held on July 30 and 31 at Detroit, Michigan expects its candidates to earn at least 1 percent support. Around 20 Democratic candidates will assemble this week for a second round of debate that is expected to be telecasted.
Alan Schroeder, a professor emeritus of journalism at Northeastern says, “The meet up will be an elimination round”
The debate would not only demand for 1 percent support but a donation from 65,000 people or even both. The following round of debates in September the criteria might double. Schroeder’s advice more than half of the candidates is at the danger zone. He says, “Go back and study Julián Castro’s performance from the first debate.” He also adds that the former secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development had done a good job by cutting the noise of the 19 other candidates.
Schroeder claims that Castro was brilliant in focusing on a specific issue which included the immigration and a particular proposal on the table.
Schroeder says, “the other best way to stand out is, “Attacking someone else.”
It seems Swalwell was behind something but as the front-runner Biden had a target on his back. The live presidential debate occurs to be more responsive to whatever is happening in the news at present. Schroeder expects the climate change to happen as this would probably be an issue that motivates young voters. The young voters are the key demographic for the final nominee. But this is expected to be still at the heart of these debates.
He also says, “It should be at the first round if that is going to surprise us during the debate.” But this is a live telecast so it can be the either way.
