The Free & Equal Elections Foundation hosted the Final Open Presidential Debate 2020 in Cheyenne Wyo. on Oct. 24. Ten presidential candidates were invited, including Donald Trump (Republican), Joe Biden (Democrat), Jo Jorgensen (Libertarian), and Kanye West (Independent).
The other five candidates confirmed. They include Brian Carroll (American Solidarity); Howie Hawkins (Green); Gloria La Riva (Socialism & Liberation); and Brock Pierce (Independence). Don Blankenship (Constitution) confirmed but wasn't present at the time of the debate.
I ranked each candidate based on his or her ability to 1) Stay on topic 2) Support arguments with evidence 3) Answer the question at hand and 4) Provide a solution distinguishable from co-debators.
