Candidates were able to qualify by either raising donations from 65,000 donors (and a minimum of 200 per state from 20 states) or polling at 1 percent in qualified polls that ended two weeks before the debates. The candidates who are in tonight’s debate are Marianne Williamson, Andrew Yang, Joe Biden, John Hickenlooper, Pete Buttigieg, Eric Swalwell, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Michael Bennet.
The candidates’ positions on stage were determined based on their polls, so that the top polling candidates would be in the center of the stage. That’s why Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders were in the center of the stage tonight. The lineup from left to right tonight is Williamson, Hickenlooper, Yang, Buttigieg, Biden, Sanders, Harris, Gillibrand, Bennet, and Swalwell.
