Council for a Livable World reached out to every Republican and Democratic candidate running for President in 2020. We wanted to know their answers to 10 important questions on nuclear weapons policy. 

Candidates were sent the questionnaire in June 2019, and were given until mid-August to return it to us. We will continue accepting answers from candidates as they submit them, and will update the website accordingly.

At this time, the questionnaire matrix and candidate pages only feature responses from top-tier candidates as determined by the Democratic National Committee’s debate threshold as of September 2019, and for President Trump as the incumbent and clear Republican front-runner. Other candidates who submit answers will be placed on the matrix and have a dedicated candidate page.

Candidates who have submitted responses to our questionnaire are denoted by blue or red images below. Other candidates have pages that reflect their opinions as we can best determine without their questionnaire responses.
