Is Andrew Yang being treated unfairly by the media?

Andrew Yang's support is growing as other candidates in the Democratic Presidential Primaries drop out. Running on a platform of a universal basic income for every American citizen, Yang's outsider status and out of the box solutions have attracted a motivated online fanbase that's translating to major political wins. Yang has been in every debate and has seen strong fundraising throughout his campaign. However, his critics argue he's an unserious candidate and is the wrong person to take on Trump and fix the mess we're currently in.

The fact that Yang is able to raise a serious amount of money despite his outsider status shows he is a serious candidate who must be taken seriously. He's not your traditional candidate, but these are not traditional times. Yang's unique solutions are building a new base that could bridge partisan divides.

Despite polling on par or above other candidates, Yang's supporters say he is consistently ignored by pundits and media organizations.

While Rasmussen is not a qualifying poll for the Democratic National Committee, the fact that Yang polled at 6% is significant when other seasoned politicians have failed to gain traction.

Yang's critics say he lacks substance with many of his policies. After four years of Trump, we don't need another outsider. Yang hasn't shown he has the depth of knowledge needed to fix what's broken.

Given what we know about how politics works in America, Yang has no serious way of winning. Thanks to the electoral college and political parties, there are only so many paths to winning the election. Yang isn't set up for those. Yang's critics say the media is ignoring Yang because Yang isn't a serious candidate.

Realistically, Yang doesn't have a chance.
