Why not Stassen too? 

Hypothesis: The more a candidate for political office thinks s/he will fare worse in a debate with an opponent, the more likely s/he will ask for third and fourth-party candidates to be included. Increasing the number of candidates on the stage redcues the number of questions asked and increases the possibility of getting help knocking down the opponent.

Corrolary: The same will apply to supporters of that candidate.
