The 2020 Democratic presidential nominating contest is attracting unprecedented interest, as it’s the first in decades that is 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 be ranking the top 21 contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination, updating our list after the 2018 midterm elections in November and as primary season ramps up in 2019. For now, only three potential candidates stand out enough to rank. Name recognition for everyone else is scant, which is why the remaining 18 names here are listed alphabetically for now.
