In the race to get the most time to sell their vision to voters, Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar and Elizabeth Warren ended up on the top.

Warren, who led in speaking time in the October and November debates, stayed in the top tier of talkers the entire debate. Former Vice President Joe Biden, who spoke the most in the September debate, ended up in the middle tier but spent a not insignificant amount of time near the bottom, with businessmen Tom Steyer and Andrew Yang.
