In 44% of the debates (or 58 debates), there were no female moderators. And in nearly three-quarters of the debates (73%, or 96 debates), the moderators were all white. Only 1 in 5 debates (26 of them) had at least one black moderator, and 11% had at least one Latinx one.

Candidates need to either register 1 percent support in three qualified polls or have 65,000 unique donors to their campaign, with a minimum of 200 different donors in at least 20 states, to qualify for the debate. Should more than 20 candidates qualify for the debate, the Democratic National Committee will use a series of tiebreakers to determine who makes it onto the stage.
