"With 10 people on a stage, you can’t really do much that’s meaningful," says Professor Grant Reeher. "They may end up competing with each other on … who has the best zinger." He was interviewed for the TIME article "How the 2016 Debates Are Still Haunting Democrats." On the other hand, Reeher adds, restricting the debate stage too extensively is also not ideal because it creates "a self-fulfilling prophecy" in which dark horse candidates never get the chance to emerge. 06/03/19
