Here's how Americans rank the 2020 presidential candidates on the political spectrum

Interesting summary of each of the candidates....

By a wide margin, Americans believe self-described democratic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders is the most liberal 2020 candidate in the Democratic field, according to a recent INSIDER poll.

Sen. Kamala Harris, Sen. Cory Booker, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development JuliŠn Castro, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren are perceived as the next most liberal candidates....

Biden was ranked right in the middle of the pack, while Reps. Seth Moulton, Eric Swalwell, John Delaney, and Tim Ryan, and Sen. Michael Bennet are seen as the least liberal candidates in the field.


...Once the poll respondents indicated which of the candidates they had heard of, we followed-up by asking them to "Please rank the following candidates based on how politically left you perceive their politics to be, with the contender in the first (1) position being the most liberal and the contender in the highest-numbered position being the least liberal."

6. LOL: Warren is 'less liberal' than Harris, Booker & Castro.

 

Even if they are not paying attention, thatís pretty dump.
