What time is the third Democratic presidential debate? Lineup, channel and more

Biden on Record Player

Only a handful of candidates were measured in NPR's general electorate favorability question, though a more complete roster was surveyed among self-identified Democrats.

The previous two Democratic National Committee-sanctioned debates aired in two-night chunks on NBC, MSNBC and Telemundo on June 26-27 in Miami and on CNN on July 30-31 in Detroit.

A live-stream of the debate will be available on this ABC station's website.

In terms of format, the candidates will have an opportunity to deliver opening statements. That goal is hard, however, with 10 voices competing for time on stage. The panel of three will be anchored by ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos.

The third Democratic presidential debate runs from 8 p.m.to 11 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 12 at Texas Southern University in Houston.

Rendell, who is backing Joe Biden in the Democratic primary, goes on to criticize Warren's characterization of a fundraiser he hosted for Biden in April as "a swanky private fund-raiser for wealthy donors" in a fundraising email she sent the day after the gathering. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., will face off. Given recent events, tonight's debate will include subjects like foreign policy, environmental protection, gun violence, and economic agendas.

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. So this is the first time their dueling visions for the Democratic Party's future will be contrasted onstage.

Biden, in fact, will be standing right between Warren and Bernie Sanders.

The candidates who made the cut will appear on stage in this order, from left to right: Minnesota Sen.

As Vox notes, every candidate who qualified for tonight's debate is automatically qualified for the October debate as well. Should others continue to drop out of the race, Warren may be able to further capitalize on her status as the most-liked Democratic candidate, elevating her position within the primary election polls. They get 45 seconds for responses and rebuttals.

Businessman Andrew Yang probably has the most to gain from this debate in that he is polling above several sitting U.S. Senators on stage with him, and he has the benefit of a large national audience tuning in for the main front runners, a good number of which may have not been exposed to his candidacy yet. Amy Klobuchar, Sen. Corey Booker, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen.

Has much changed in the polls since last debate?
