An online petition started in May this year, asking for support to select Joe Rogan as a moderator at the 2020 Presidential Debate, has suddenly taken off as America gets into the swing of the presidential election on 3 November 2020.
The change.org petition currently has over 136,000 signatures and shows no sign of slowing down.
The petition reads:
“We are petitioning for the Commission on the Presidential Debates to elect Joe Rogan as one of the moderators for the 2020 Presidential Debate. Here are the reasons why we believe this would be a great decision:
Joe Rogan is a widely respected host who has hosted interviews with politicians, economists, scientists, and other popular figures, who come from various walks of life.
Joe Rogan has experience with interviewing both progressive and conservative thinkers. Figures such as Andrew Yang (D), Tulsi Gabbard (D), Kyle Kulinski (D), Gary Johnson (L), Benjamin Shapiro (R), and Candace Owens (R), have all appeared on “The Joe Rogan Experience” program.
Joe Rogan has an audience containing viewers from all areas of the political spectrum. Joe Rogan is not registered under any political party and is well-known for having civil, productive, and interesting, conversations about political issues without partisan bias.
Please help us in our goal to elect Joe Rogan as one of the moderators for the 2020 Presidential Debate! Rogan would make a great moderator and would draw in more interested viewers for the debate.’’
“The site gives an option to give the reason behind your decision to sign the petition, and everyone seems to think that he’s the right guy for the job.’’
Some comments from those who signed:
“We need a new way of holding debates and Joe’s interview with Bernie Sanders sheds light on how it ought be done.”
“I want an honest moderator without the biased agenda seen in all the rest. Fix may be the worst, but they aren’t the only ones guilty of bias. Joe is the man.”
“Previous moderators have been horrible at their job, I’ve been listening to Rogan interviews for years and know he’d do a much better job.”
Joe Rogan started his career as an American stand-up comedian in Boston, was an actor and TV host, an award winning MMA commentator and interviewer and runs his own highly successful podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience.
