WASHINGTON, June 15 ― The Democratic Party yesterday announced its line-ups for the debut debate of the 2020 presidential cycle ― a crowded, two-night affair that will see frontrunners Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders square off in a highly anticipated match-up.

Biden and Sanders have been polling as the two top contenders for the Democratic nomination since as far back as October 2018 before either candidate announced their candidacy.

The poll consisted of more than 50 questions related to the Democratic race, the 2020 general election, state issues and the Trump administration.
The poll, with a 1.5 percent margin of error, was conducted in influential early-voting states including Iowa, New Hampshire and SC, as well as in populous states in the upper Midwest where Trump eked out narrow but decisive victories in 2016.
