The presidential election could hinge on three debates next month. One Democratic pollster told Reuters that those debates are "a do or die for Romney," while RNC chairman Reince Priebus says the president, "will have to explain to the American people why thing are so bad."

One thing neither the president nor Romney will have to worry about is answering to a third-party candidate. There won't be one taking part in the debate because the Commission on Presidential Debates only accepts candidates who are polling at a certain level nationally.

But there are a number of online petitions to allow third-party candidates into the debate — people like Libertarian Gary Johnson or Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Or Rocky Anderson, a former Democratic mayor of Salt Lake City and a Justice Party candidate for president in 2012.
