September Democratic debate: Everything you need to know

The candidates with the highest polling averages - Biden and Warren - will be center stage. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), shakes hands with supporters after speaking at the New Hampshire Democratic Party Convention at the SNHU Arena on September 7, 2019 in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Warren's primacy in the NPR poll, despite her second or third tier status in more common candidate preference polls, suggests that enthusiasm for her may be fractured among several other Democrats now running for the nomination.

In addition to being one of Biden's top challengers in polls, Warren has also had longstanding policy disagreements with Biden, dating back to a 2005 bill that made it more hard for people to file for bankruptcy.

The other candidates trailing Warren, Biden and Sanders, while all receiving lower favorable ratings, had relatively high non-response rates, indicating that their inability to achieve ratings comparable to Biden and Warren may be, in part, due to their relative obscurity. That's half the number who qualified for the last round in late July.

Fourteen months away from Election Day 2020, the Democratic Party primary field is narrowing as the fall debates are approaching. Sen.
