Who won the presidential debate on October 16?

Could Gary Johnson or Jill Stein take part in the second or third debate?

According to Politico, the Presidential Debate Commission announced on Friday September 16 that the same requirements will be used to assess the suitability of candidates for the 2nd and 3rd Presidential Debates:

"[D] The Board of Directors noted that the survey averages required in the third criterion are as follows: Hillary Clinton (43%), Donald Trump (40.4%), Gary Johnson (8.4%) and Jill Stein (3, 2%) Hillary Clinton and her run-mate Tim Kaine and Donald Trump and run-mate Mike Pence qualify to participate in the presidential debate on September 26 and the vice-presidential debate on October 4. No other candidate met the criteria for admission the debates of September 26 and October 4. The criteria will be reapplied to all candidates before the second and third presidential debates. "

What the time As for where they will make the decision, I imagine this would be similar to the first one. About two weeks before each debate, the commission will get theirs Examine "five selected national opinion polling organizations" to determine eligibility requirements for the four candidates. Those who make the cut are invited and the rest are not. Exact dates are not given when you go to the Commission's website.

The invitation to participate in the second and third of the planned presidential debates of the CPD is based on the fulfillment of the same criteria in front every debate.

Thank you very much ... that's about two weeks, but it'll be enough. It's based on the latest polls anyway, so it's not an immediate thing.

@Kaine Yes, my reading of their criteria shows that they are the latest available data from the surveys they take into account consider , if you take them into account for which they do not offer an exact schedule.
