“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Joseph Goebbels

Democratic Presidential Candidates:

Candidates can qualify for the December debate stage by hitting 4 percent in four polls approved by the DNC (or 6 percent in two approved early state polls) and by having 200,000 unique contributors, with 800 in 20 different states, territories or the District of Columbia. Candidates’ qualification is based off POLITICO’s tracking of public polling and donor counts; qualification is not official until confirmed by the DNC after the deadline to qualify has passed.

Republican Presidential Candidates:
