Which of these 2020 Democrats agrees with you most?


Itís finally 2020, and voters will soon begin choosing their preferred candidate for president. The Post has asked each Democratic candidate where they stand on more than 85 policy questions.

Just tuning into the Democratic primary? Start here.

Now, itís your turn to answer. Below are 20 questions we found particularly interesting, mostly because they reveal big differences between the remaining major candidates. We havenít asked the campaigns about every topic, but this selection tries to cover a variety of issues. Answer as many as you like.

[Who qualified for the January debate]

Since we first published this guide in November, new candidates have joined the race and several others have dropped out. We have included everyone polling at least 1 percent in The Postís national polling average. This new version adds questions on such topics as gun control and the criminal justice system.

I know you have seen a million of these things so far but I think they are fun.

2. paywall.....

 

But regardless, warren is probably closest to my positions. I especially like her proposal to break up the big tech companies like google, amazon, fb, etc.

But I'm supporting biden for elect ability reasons. He is still progressive (despite what the bob camp says), but stands the best chance to run up the score where it counts.

6. Same here.

 

I agree more with Warren but believe Biden possesses the ability to defeat Trump in a landslide.

3. They don't have to agree with me.

 

They have to agree with the U.S. Constitution, the rule of law, the three co-equal branches of govt.

4. Here is the way I look at it...

 

The United States House of Representatives will stop Biden from drifting too far to the right, and Biden will stop the U.S. House of Representatives from drifting too far to the left. Then, all we need is the Senate.

5. Of the 20 questions: Highest Agreement (Warren 16/20) and Lowest (Biden 3/20)

 

I would say that is a fairly accurate assessment of where I stand.

18. Me too

 

so, I guess, based on other responses I should vote for Biden because he's an old white man and that is the only "electable" type of human.

12. Klobuchar came first for me with 13.

 

Biden and four others came in second with 12.

Warren was third with 11.

Surprisingly, Bernie came in last with 7.

Christ, I agree more with Gabbard than Bernie by one point. Thatís not something I saw coming.

20. Steyer 18/20 :)

 

Interestingly, only a 2 point difference between Joe and Bernie - 12 to 10. What the quiz doesn't show is relative importance of the issues. Also does not include character or electability. I know that my preference for Joe as the nominee over Bernie is much stronger than the 2 points shown by the quiz. But the strong showing for agreement with Steyer shows why I "signed up" for him on DU, even though I think it's quite a long shot for him to win the nomination.

26. Warren was 1st,

 

not really a surprise. Nor was the fact that Sanders was right behind.

What shocked me was that STEYER was 2nd, a close second, followed by a close third (Sanders), then the rest of the pack.

Steyer needs to make his positions on issues more clear, as I still see him as an environmentalist billionaire wanting to either buy the job or make sure his taxes don't go up. He needs to get the message out

30. Wow...Bloomy came in first for me with 14 and in second place...

 

At 13 was Biden.

Biden I knew would come in high, but I didnt think Bloomberg would. "Likeability" is important to me, something I wouldnt use to describe Bloomberg. So....Biden is still my candidate of choice right now

Good survey!
