Andrew Yang has yet again been excluded from a list of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates provided by MSNBC, despite being qualified for the debate.

This infographic was shown on Andrea Mitchell Reports, a news program hosted by Andrea Mitchell who covers the latest in political and foreign affair news.

According to Inquisitr.com, Yang has met both polling and fundraising thresholds for the first 2020 presidential debate on June 26. In comparison, Bill de Blasio, Tim Ryan and Eric Swalwell have been included on MSNBC’s list despite only meeting the polling threshold.

In addition to Yang, other democrats excluded from the list include Wayne Messam, Marianne WIlliamson and Mike Gravel. However, Williamson is the only one who actually qualifies for a spot in the debate.

Despite being a surprise in the race, Yang’s campaign has not always been given respect from the media and his political rivals.

“The DNC’s going to have a real problem on their hands if Marianne Williamson and Andrew Yang are on the stage and if governors, senators and members of Congress aren’t,” a anonymous 2020 campaign aide said to US News. “I think voters right now want to hear from everyone. There’s no desire in early states to limit the number of people to hear from right now.”
