Tulsi Gabbard, after decrying impeachment, qualifies for next debate

Tulsi has taken an unpopular stance on impeachment among democrats, but that hasn’t stopped her from making a splash in the pool of 2020 candidates.

Hawaiian House Rep. Tulsi Gabbard has had quite a topsy-turvy 2020 campaign, and this week has been no exception.

After a fiery debate performance just weeks ago, Gabbard had the somewhat dubious distinction of being the “most searched” candidate in the internet.  While some may find this to be a feather in the camp of the dark horse democrat, it is an honor shared by spiritual guru and self-help author Marianne Williamson, who has not been taken all that seriously during this contentious race for the White House.

Gabbard also defied much of the democratic party this week with her hardline stance against the impeachment of Donald Trump.

Gabbard, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination in a crowded field, said on “Fox & Friends” that she has been consistent in saying that victory in the 2020 election, not impeachment, is the way for Democrats to make sure Trump leaves office.

“I believe that impeachment at this juncture would be terribly divisive for the country at a time when we are already extremely divided. The hyperpartisanship is one of the main things driving our country apart,” she told host Brian Kilmeade.

Despite her opinion being wildly unpopular among democrats, Gabbard has found herself with a sudden uptick in exposure – enough so to qualify her for the 4th televised debate.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) became the 12th Democratic presidential candidate to qualify for the party’s October primary debate on Tuesday after a new poll showed her with 2 percent support in New Hampshire.

To qualify for the October debate, candidates have to collect contributions from 130,000 unique donors and register at least 2 percent in four Democratic National Committee-approval polls. Gabbard met the donor benchmark weeks ago but has struggled to notch enough support in a fourth poll to put her over the polling threshold.

That changed on Tuesday after a Monmouth University poll showed the Hawaii congresswoman with 2 percent support among registered New Hampshire Democrats and unaffiliated voters who are likely to vote in the crucial first-in-the-nation primary on Feb. 11.

Gabbard is still quite the long-shot, however, polling at around 1% nationally according to Real Clear Politics.
