Bernie Sanders says it 'probably' should be easier to include third-party candidates in debates

The 15 percent national poll average required to include third-party candidates in presidential debates is "probably too high," Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said in an interview with NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday.

"It should be lower than that," said the former Democratic candidate, for third-party contenders who "reach a certain level" — though he brushed aside any chance of a third-party win. "Either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump is going to become president of the United States," Sanders said, "and there is no question in my mind that Hillary Clinton is far, far, far and away the superior candidate."
