Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has proven critics wrong, and her campaign has lived to see another day after qualifying for the Democratic National Committee’s next presidential primary debate in October.
Gabbard has previously polled above two percent in three separate DNC-approved polls, and a new poll released by Monmouth University on Tuesday that shows her polling at two percent solidifies her slot in the next televised debate.
The Hawaii representative’s campaign is reportedly well above the secondary debate threshold of 130,000 unique donors.
Gabbard will join Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Beto O’Rourke, and other Democratic front runners at a debate hosted by CNN and The New York Times on October 15. If necessary, a second debate will held on October 16 to accommodate all candidates.
The Democratic field has slimmed down considerably since spring, as Eric Swalwell, John Hickenlooper, Jay Inslee, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Bill de Blasio have all admitted massive failure to secure a substantial voter base after appearing on the televised debates.
Gabbard has consistently remained an ideological outlier compared to the other candidates. She frequently refers to her military service and pride in the United States armed forces, and has spoken out against Big Tech censorship, foreign lobbying, late-term abortion, and the Democrat Party’s impeachment fetish.
For these thought crimes, the Hawaii native has been called a puppet of Bashar al-Assad, an isolationist, a conservative and a white nationalist by far-left and corporate-controlled elements of the Democratic Party.
As National File reported, Gabbard has refused to give up in spite of incessant attacks from partisans and censorship by Big Tech, stating “Hell no!” when asked if she would drop out of the race:
Representative Tulsi Gabbard, the anti-war Democratic candidate, told voters that her run for President was “far from over,” no matter what the pundits said.
Speaking at a town hall event in Atlanta, Gabbard responded to concerns that she was dropping out after failing to make the next Democratic debate with a succint “Hell no!”:
I started hearing from a lot of people in the media when they said, ‘OK, you didn’t make the third debate. Are you quitting?… If any of them had been listening to what I’ve been saying about what this movement is about, about why I’m running for president, and what is at stake, they would understand why we are here and why we will never quit.
Gabbard is currently suing Google for alleged censorship of her campaign on search engines and social media.
