It does not look like Robert F. Kennedy Jr will be on stage for the CNN debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

According to a new report, he will not meet the ballot access requirement for the debate.

Breitbart reported:

Independent Presidential candidate Robert F Kennedy Jr. will reportedly not make the debate stage next week with former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden in Atlanta, Georgia.

The former Democrat will apparently fail to satisfy CNN’s stringent ballot access requirement by Thursday, the Washington Post reports.

CNN noted in May that candidates must “appear on a sufficient number of state ballots to reach the 270 electoral vote threshold” necessary to win the White House to make the June 27 debate. The Post reports Kennedy is currently eligible for 100 electoral votes when considering states he is certified in and other states, like California and Hawaii, where CNN recognizes him as the presumptive nominee of a minor party:

The Kennedy campaign’s online running ballot access tracker indicates that, as of Wednesday, it has completed petitioning in two dozen or so states, where he would be eligible for 310 electoral votes if all states’ petitions were officially certified.

However, the Washington Post’s ballot access analysis of the campaign shows Kennedy has been certified for the ballot in five states thus far.

In a memo over the weekend, CNN said, Though not impossible in Kennedy’s case, it is less likely that candidates other than Biden and Trump will meet those requirements.

The Hill reported:

“Though not impossible in Kennedy’s case, it is less likely that candidates other than Biden and Trump will meet those requirements,” CNN wrote in a memo over the weekend outlining logistics around opening statements and commercial breaks.

CNN has not budged on their conditions. Candidates must still clear at least 15 percent of support in four polls and be viable on enough state ballots to earn 270 delegates to participate in the forum with moderators Jake Tapper and Dana Bash.

Noting the time constraints, the cable news network has all but counted out a last-minute appearance from Kennedy, who has alleged without evidence that the candidates and journalists have manipulated the rules against him
