|Green Party candidate Jill Stein|
Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, who did not poll high enough to qualify for the first presidential debate this coming Monday at Hofstra University, says she plans to participate "live in the debate on social media."
Additionally, Stein will take part in a "Let Jill Debate" protest in front of Hofstra University before the debate commences, as well as a "People's Debate."
The commission which plans and organizes presidential debate had set a threshold of an average of 15% polling across five major national polls (ABC-Washington Post, CBS-New York Times, CNN-Opinion Research Corporation, Fox News, and NBC-Wall Street Journal) to qualify for the first debate.
Stein is currently averaging 2.8% nationally according to Real Clear Politics.
Fellow third-party candidate Libertarian Gary Johnson also failed to make the stage as his polling average is currently 8.5%.
