The 2020 election is closely approaching and the usual wave of candidates from the party opposite the presidency is getting larger and larger. Very little opposition has been thrown against incumbent Trump on the Republican side. With the new decade starting, Americans are looking for strong leaders that match their stance on the issues of the day. A Gallup poll cited that “one-fifth (20%) of those polled said government and poor leadership are America’s biggest current problem.” Following this ranking are health care, racism, immigration, and national unity.

As mentioned earlier, there is a blue mass of potential candidates for the Democratic party in 2020.  Candidates range from newcomers with new perspectives and ideals, to career politicians who have been deep in Washington for years now. The notable old dogs include 2016 Democratic nomination runner up Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden. Bernie has decided to stick with his usual platform of lifting the lower class and reform. Joe Biden’s stance is unclear due to his recent announcement of running, but many D.C. experts suspect that his presidency would not be unlike Obama’s, pushing affordable health care. Former Congress members in the running include Cory Brooker, (Senator of New Jersey), Tulsi Gabbard (Former Senator of Hawaii) and Elizabeth Warren (Senator from Massachusetts) to name a few.

17 candidates for the Democrats have officially announced running, which does not include the 10-15 who are still considering. Many suspect the candidates will start dropping like flies from the running as election day approaches, similar to the Republican candidates of the 2016 election, in which the parties had reversed situations. Its too early to make definitive statements, but the election season and all its drama is fast approaching and will undoubtedly prove to be very entertaining. The Iowa caucus is set to be on the Monday, February 3rd, 2020.
