The position of the five candidates on the stage at the CNN Facebook Democratic Debate in Las Vegas is based on polls since Aug. 1 and was announced on CNN's "State of the Union."
On either side of Clinton, the highest-polling candidate, are Bernie Sanders
(to Clinton's right) and Martin O'Malley
(to her left). Jim Webb and Lincoln Chafee, the fourth- and fifth-placing candidates, bookend the stage.
Should Vice President Biden decide to enter the race and take part in the debate, there would be a podium placed on the stage for him as well.
CNN's coverage of the debate begins at 8:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
