Yes, it sure is. Democracy gives the vote to citizens of the required age, and it also requires that candidates win the approval and support of the voters. If a candidate doesn't have some minimal level of support when they qualify to be on a ballot, they shouldn't be treated as if they actually have significant support among the voters when it comes to debates and media coverage.

Do you also think all candidates should receive the same amount of media coverage? Maybe laws to require that?
