In a Washington Post op-ed, Mr. Rendell, who has endorsed former Vice President Joseph R. Biden for president, wrote he has been a big fan of Ms. Warren, but said the Massachusetts Democrat's anti-big donor pledge rings hollow. Warren, who as a Harvard law professor once challenged then-Sen.

The poll, conducted by Change Research and sponsored by Investingin.us and the AAPI Victory Fund, was released in connection to the first-ever AAPI Democratic Presidential Forum held in Costa Mesa, California.

Seventy-five percent of Democrats have a favorable opinion of Warren, the highest favorability rating of any candidate in the field, according to the NPR/Marist poll.

ABC also noted there will be opening statements, but not closing statements. The event is scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m. ET and will conclude at 11:00 p.m.

As ABC News gears up to host Thursday's Democratic debate from Houston, a new study indicates that the network's evening newscast "has awarded a majority" of coverage to one candidate - former Vice President Joe Biden.

Viewers can watch the debate on ABC, Univision or ABC News Live and stream the debate on Twitter, Facebook Watch, YouTube, ABCNews.com, Good Morning America and FiveThirtyEight. One minute and 15 seconds will be allotted for direct responses to questions, and candidates will get 45 seconds for responses and rebuttals. Warren is widely seen as a potential frontrunner; rising in recent polls that has her tied at 26% alongside Joe Biden.

Notably, the credibility that the general electorate extends to Warren is not replicated with Senator Bernie Sanders, despite their similar approaches to public policy.

It marks the first time all the major candidates will be on one stage.

Because of more stringent debate requirements, the candidates in tonight's debate are narrowed down to just 10 rather than 20. This debate had a higher bar for qualifying than the previous two, which cut the field roughly in half. That could give candidates their largest audience yet as the campaigning heads into the fall. Amy Klobuchar, Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, former Housing Secretary Julián Castro, former Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke and entrepreneur Andrew Yang. Because the threshold is the same, it further means all of the candidates debating on Thursday have already qualified for the October debate.
