2020 US Presidential Election: All Candidates, Polls, Rankings, odds and predictions

 Every detail you need about the next US presidential election.

On Tuesday, November 3, 2020, all Americans are waiting with a sinking heart. Yes, what’s going on? The 2020 US Presidential Election, it isThe whole world. After all, the political course of one of the most powerful economies in the world, the basis of the current financial Bretton Woods system and the largest center of innovation and new technologies, no more nor less, determines the future of the planet as a whole.

The Democratic Convention, at which the presidential candidate is officially nominated, will be held from July 13 to July 16, 2020. The Republican Party will hold its convention for the nomination in Charlotte, North Carolina, the date is not yet specified.

While in the Oval Office, the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump, is in charge of the “anniversary” order. Will he remain in it as the master for a second term? Who will stand up to him in the fight?

Someone will say:

“It’s almost half a term before the real presidential election! What does the midterm elections have to do with it?”

And he will be fundamentally wrong, as on November 6, 2018, senators in 35 states, the House of Representatives (435) and 36 governors were re-elected. Depending on which party would gain the upper hand, the current cabinet would have to face active opposition to initiatives or, conversely, assistance.

The results of this election showed that the Democrats won. But Republicans didn’t lose. How so? And this is the case – for the first time in very, very many years, there is no unanimity in American society. Control of the House of Representatives now belongs to the Democratic Party, and the Senate has again retained the Republican. And among the governors of people with democratic views there were only 6 more.

Trump himself said after the election that it was a “huge victory” in the election, because his party and himself had been trusted. However, this does not mean that the elected staff of the incumbent president can buy tickets to Hawaii and rest, being pre-confident in their success. Just in the current situation, the fact that the victory of the Democrats was not at all as impressive as it could be, for them is already remarkable.

And all the more becomes intrigue, the unfolding of which we watch very soon. After all, Donald Trump’s competitors are going to be very many interesting personalities.

Every day, the candidates for the American presidency are getting bigger. Even before the beginning of the active phase of pre-election races, 20 well-known representatives of different parties and associations announced their participation. In addition, there are still potential candidates, while pondering whether to run.

Actually, the essence of the election is that there should be some “assortment” of candidates. In 2020 US Presidential Election, the number of candidates is sufficient, allowing you to choose the right person from such a solid variety of options.

Thirty-three percent voted for the Democratic nominee and 11 percent who would vote more for a Democrat than a Republican.

Who will replace Trump in 2020?

Rob Statsman, a Republican consultant, made unexpected predictions about who might be the 2020 presidential nominee. who has long opposed Trump’s candidacy. Given his low approval rating, Trump may even lose in the primaries, compounded by the fact that many Republicans did not want him to be their party’s nominee.

In other words, there are many possibilities in which Trump will not be the Republican nominee. The expert named five other names of people who, in his opinion, could become the candidates of the Republican Party.

Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz is an American politician and U.S. senator from Texas since January 2013, a member of the Republican Party. In March 2015, Ted Cruz announced his intention to run for the 2016 presidential nomination as the Republican nominee.3 May 2016, Cruz lost the Indiana primaries with 36.6% of the vote to 53.3% of the vote. Trump then announced his retirement from the presidential campaign. It’s hard to imagine someone who doesn’t love Trump more than Cruz.

Trump made incorrect remarks about his wife’s appearance, and also suggested that Cruz’s father may have been involved in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. On domestic and social policy, Cruz is opposed to abortion, Obamacare, same-sex marriage, marijuana legalization, but supports the death penalty, the USA Freedom Act and the right to bear arms.

Jeff Flake

Jeff Flake is a U.S. Republican politician and U.S. senator from Arizona since 2013. Election to Donald Trump. McCain declared his support because ordinary Republican voters are behind Trump (an experienced politician sharply criticized the candidate for his views on immigration), and Flake fundamentally rejected Trump, calling the promise unfeasible nonsense billionaire building a wall on the border with Mexico and saying that in reality no one believes in the possibility of such construction.

At the moment, Flake is positioning himself as a conservative and the conscience of the Republican Party, a man who is not willing to succumb to the latest trends in politics just because it is the path of least resistance.

 

John Kasich

John Kasich is an American politician who represents the Republican Party. The 69th and current governor of Ohio. Republicans offered Kasich the nomination for Ohio governor in 2006, but he refused to enter the race. On June 1, 2009, Kasich officially announced his intention to run for governor. In the general election on November 2, 2010, he defeated incumbent Democratic Governor Ted Strickland.

He was sworn in at midnight on January 10, 2011, in a private ceremony at the Ohio Theatre in Columbus. He was re-elected governor on November 4, 2014. He also proposed an alternative strategy to bring people together around sensible solutions. In an interview in May, when asked about his plans for the future, Kasich gave a rather vague answer, which experts perceived as the possibility that the politician will take part in the 2020 US Presidential Election Ben Sass Ben Sass – American politician, U.S. Senator from Nebraska since January 2015.

He was previously president of Midland University in Fremont, Nebraska from 2010 to 2014. From July to September 2005, he was a consultant to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

He has already become known as a critic of Trump.

Scott Walker
Scott Kevin Walker is an American politician representing the Republican Party. 45th and current governor of Wisconsin. In late April 2009, Walker ran for governor of Wisconsin. On September 14, 2010, he won the primary with 59% of the vote, while former congressman Mark Newmann won 39%. On November 2, 2010, Walker won the general election with 52% of the votes cast. Walker has long appeared in the press in a positive context, which is due to the economic success of his state. That’s why the expert believes that Walker may at some point become a rather serious competitor to the charismatic Trump.

U.S. Presidential Election 2020

Not all Russians are concerned about the 2020 US Presidential Election, although most of our fellow citizens periodically monitor the global political situation. Russians became particularly interested in the American government after the sanctions were imposed. Therefore, many people are interested to know who is now applying for the position of President of America and what a potential change of power could turn out for the people of our country. It is also not the first time Russia has been accused of trying to sabotage the US election.

Features of the U.S. election in 2020

It is obvious that the citizens of the United States of America are more interested in the date of the elections, but the russians will also be watching this day. And it is already known on what day the elections of the head of the American state will be held. In 2020, they will be held on November 3. This year, November could be the month of the 46th President of the United States.

It’s interesting to know! Political analysts around the world suggest that Trump has already lost the 2020 US Presidential Election early, without even starting his campaign. A survey conducted among the American population shows about the same result, although Trump’s approval rating has recently started to rise again.

It should not be forgotten that the serial number of the American president is considered regardless of what year the person became the head of state. People are counted, not the number of presidential terms held in the country.

Potential candidates for the post of head of state according to Art. 2 U.S. Constitution specifically:
1.The age is at least 35 years old.
2.U.S. citizenship.
3.Residence in the country for at least 14 years.

At the same time, anyone can run, whether he is a singer, a politician or just a wealthy citizen of his country. The way in which elections are not particularly complicated, although often the American elections are closely related to the financial resources spent by candidates on their campaign. And investments should be solid, because there are a lot of people who want to become the head of state.

Among the representatives of the Democratic Party there are mayors, senators and ministers. In addition, the United States is not so skeptical about women running for political elections. Therefore, among the applicants there are several ladies who already occupy various positions in the system of government.

How and when some “qualifying starts” among the candidates from one party will take place is unclear. However, competition exists not only within one political association, but also between different parties. In particular, the Republican Party already has official nominees, as well as those planning to join the presidential race. Among the first is the incumbent US President Donald Trump.

A well-known candidate was nominated from the Libertarian Party in 2016. This is William Weld, who was formerly governor of Massachusetts. Now he represents the Republican Party and has also officially declared his desire to run for the post of head of state.

It is expected that such persons will be nominated:
1.Larry Hogan, the incumbent governor of Maryland.
2.Bob Corker, formerly mayor of Chattanooga and senator from Tennessee.
3.John Casey, the governor of Ohio, has twice run for president of the United States in the past.

In fact, pre-election companies are already held to varying degrees, including covertly. At the same time, the number of applicants is changing all the time, and it is quite difficult to keep track of the course of events with so many people who want to become president.

However, a large number of applicants on closer examination becomes less pronounced, because many people initially can not count on anything. Some of them will not even get to the end of the race, losing the desire to run for the role of head of state. There are also self-removed candidates who talk about abandoning the race for the presidency.

Rejected and potential 2020 US presidential election candidates

Entrepreneur Mark Bloomberg, former mayor of New York, initially considered the possibility of his own participation in the 2020 US Presidential Election. Tom Steyer, the founder of the investment company Farallon Capital, also refused to participate in the election campaign. The billionaire decided to make every effort to impeach Trump, having already spent more than $20 million on it.

Another person who gave up the presidential race was West Virginia Sen. Richard Ojeda. This happened before the primaries began, but the reasons for mr. Ojede’s decision were not announced.

Recently, there was a rumor in the network that potentially among the presidential candidates can include representatives of the IT-sphere. There are versions that Bill Gates or Mark zuckerberg will decide on the nomination of their candidates.

Michelle Obama is one of the other unexpected people. However, the former first lady has repeatedly stated her reluctance to run for the post of head of state. Tv presenter Oprah Winfrey has a similar opinion. She does not want to have anything to do with dishonest elections, although the opinion on the Russian trail is not openly expressed.

 

Russia’s interference in the U.S. presidential election (2020)

The network has repeatedly circulated rumors that various Russian “trolls, spies and agitators” are trying to disrupt the next election of the American president. Foreign media sometimes even openly blame the Russian special services for this.

It is assumed that in advance of knowing what number there will be the election of the American president, various persons living in the U.S. or European countries, begin to “troll” the people, causing vivid discussions of the current government, discreetly adjusting the population against a candidate. In the same way, by communicating in chat rooms, on forums or in comments to various posts, the American population is inspired by the idea of choosing the right president.

It’s worth knowing! For more than two years, special prosecutor Robert Mueller has been trying to find strong evidence of the existence and appreciable interference of the “troll factory” and the involvement of the Internet Research Agency, but has failed to do so. However, Americans and Europeans believe that Russia secretly interfered in the course of voting in the United States.

In 2016, Russia was actively accused of “all grave sins” and launched a long-running investigation into the Russian trail. The next election is just around the corner and already now our country has been attacked again by the Western and American media, accusing Russian politicians and intelligence agencies of meddling in the honest choice of the US president.

The 2020 US Presidential Election, according to residents of different countries will again be sabotaged by the Russian side, although judging by the number of contenders, seriously believe in the possibility of manipulating the American people a little naive. However, so far some potential candidates have only suggested the nomination of their own person to the elections, but have not declared it officially. Therefore, closer to the elections everything will become clear.

Permanent Republican

In July 2018, the head of the Republican National Committee, Ronna Romney McDaniel, announced that the party was going to nominate President Donald Trump again. It is possible that this step will be refused, as the American leader in the last six months was involved in a number of scandals – in connection with new data on Russian interference in the presidential election 2016, the adoption of an unpopular anti-immigrant package laws and lobbying for the construction of the Mexican Wall, which even caused a shatdown (government shutdown) for almost a month. Now Trump is under threat of impeachment. He himself announced his intention to be re-elected in 2017.

Who else?

Immediately after the 2016 election, Republican politician Jack Fellur, who participated in the election, announced that he would run for president in 2020. He is called the “eternal candidate.2020 US Presidential Election will be Fellour’s eighth.

Possible Republican candidates include Ohio Gov. John Kasich, Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, political commentator William Kristol, Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake and Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan.

Instead of Hillary

On January 25, 2019, the media, citing sources, reported on the plans of Vermont Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders to once again compete with Trump in the presidential election. The politician has been thinking about the nomination for several months. He was encouraged by polls that showed a lot of support for Sanders among African-American and Hispanic citizens and called him one of the most popular politicians in the United States. In the 2016 presidential election, Sanders rivaled former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination.

Third party

Of course, representatives of other parties and independent candidates will participate in the 2020 US Presidential Election.

Adam Kokesh, a Russia Today presenter and veteran of the Iraqi campaign and an activist, could run for election from the Libertarian Party. He previously ran for Congress.

The Green Party is likely to run for election by dr. Jill Stein. She ran for president in 2012 and 2016.

The name of former Starbucks coffee shop chain CEO Howard Schultz is mentioned among independent candidates, but only sources confirmed his intention to run for office. Schultz has been a vocal critic of Trump.

As The New York Times predicts, the other most likely candidates in the election will be New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, and former Vice President Joe Biden.

Billionaire Michael Bloomberg, who allowed to participate in the race, is unlikely to go to the polls, the newspaper writes. His intention was announced in January 2018, and in October he rejoined the Democratic Party.
