I don’t know if it’s true, but I encountered one report that said she did a better job than Romney when they debated in MA. I do hope they will let the small party candidates take part in at least some of the debates. One thing that separates the Green Party from the big parties, and I think also the others is that they take no corporate or big labor donations. How refreshing.
A third party candidate they will let in the POTUS debates if they hit like 15% in the polls. Not gonna happen for any of them, not by a mile. They will have their own debate that Romney and Obama will not attend. So Stein ain’t gonna be in the ring with Romney again. I recall hearing he did do bad in those 2002 debates, I thought he would lose but he still beat the rat O’Brien.
No corporate or labor money is nice, but to be fair I doubt any of the third parties have been offered any. I doubt the Greens would refuse labor money. The Libertarians and Constitution parties maybe would reject corporate if offered but they will not get offered any. No one wants to a buy a party that can’t win, there would be no point.
