The Democratic presidential debates are only roughly a month away.

It's the first of many times we hope to be taking the pulse of the online community, to see who should win the 2020 Democratic nominee for the presidency.

I've only included those that have received at least 2% of the vote in the last few polls and I am listing them in alphabetical order.

I have to admit I am no fan of the primary process since people seem to tear each other apart, but I know it's necessary.

This first poll is just to get a feel for where everyone is. It can change at any moment, as we have seen over the course of recent and not-so-recent election history.

(Please choose up to three candidates This is not an endorsement of any candidate, but for information gathering only for our readers.)
