Ranking the Top Democratic Presidential Candidates for 2020

Kiplinger Personal Finance - Fri, 12/14/2018 - 00:17

The 2020 Democratic presidential nominating contest is attracting unprecedented interest, as it's the first in decades to be truly wide open. Although there are more than 40 politicians, businessmen and celebrities weighing a bid, former Vice President Joe Biden is the only one for whom virtually all other candidates would step aside. And this far out, it's impossible to know whether there's another Barack Obama hiding in the mix, ready to catch fire and snatch the nomination from the heir apparent.

We'll rank the top contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination, updating our list as hopefuls drop out and primary season lifts and crushes others. But for now, only 13 stand out enough to rank, which is why the remaining names are listed alphabetically as the countdown to Iowa's Feb. 3, 2020 caucuses commences. For our ranked contenders, we note where we placed them in August.
