To make the December debate, candidates have to amass the support of at least 200,000 unique donors and register the support of at least 4 percent of respondents in four Democratic National Committee-approved polls or 6 percent in two approved early-state polls.

Candidates have until the end of Thursday to qualify.

Yang crossed the donor threshold months ago. A survey from Quinnipiac University Poll released on Tuesday gave him his fourth qualifying survey and, as a result, a spot on the December debate stage.

Yang entered the Democratic nominating contest more than two years ago as mostly an unknown, pitching a form of universal basic income dubbed the “Freedom Dividend,” a $1,000-per-month payment to every U.S. adult.

Yang has continued to gain a following since launching his campaign.

He’s earned the right to appear at every primary debate so far and has outraised some of his more well-known rivals. In the third fundraising quarter of 2019, Yang brought in $9.9 million, outpacing high-profile candidates like Klobuchar and Sen.
