The two-night event will air on NBC on Wednesday and Thursday.
Knowing that the field of candidates would be enormous, the DNC tried to avoid repeating Republicans’ example in 2015, when they featured a primetime debate of the top-polling candidates and an earlier “kiddie table” debate with those polling worse.
So the DNC separated the candidates into groups — those polling at 2 percent or above, and those below that level. They ensured each group would be split equally among the two nights, and then held a random drawing to see which candidates would be on each night.
Now each of these debate nights will be two hours long, with 10 candidates onstage. If speaking time is split equally among every candidate, they’d get just 12 minutes each — and that’s before taking out time for the moderators and for breaks. So time is precious, and the contenders will struggle to make every moment count.
