One year away: A look ahead to upcoming 2020 presidential election


Robert Kunze, Columnist

The 2020 presidential election is right around the corner, and we are awaiting the most polarizing election of our generation. With the nation so divided, this election may further split our country apart.

Now, with 17 Democratic candidates remaining and four Republican candidates, the Democratic National Committee’s best bet is Joe Biden. The former vice president under the Obama administration has the name recognition and highest polling numbers. He is also the most moderate candidate out of the entire DNC candidates.

This will also help gather the “center-to-left” American voters. Candidates such as Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris are all too far-left to grab moderates.

With the Republican Party holding on to President Donald Trump, it’s very rare for a president to be beaten while in office. In total, it has only happened 10 times in our country’s history. The last time being George H. W. Bush, who lost to Bill Clinton in 1992. Trump is also predicted to win key swing states in the upcoming election, according to Moody’s Analytics, which has been correct since 1980, except in 2016.

Even with the impeachment inquiry and media biases against Trump, the Democratic Party will have a hard time taking the Oval Office away from Trump. Democrats are split between the more moderate Joe Biden followers and the further-left Sanders or Warren supporters. However, Democrat voters will turn out in numbers to the ballot box as they do not want a repeat of 2016.

They must win this impossible impeachment inquiry. If they continue to fail in their quest to impeach Trump, the Democrats will start to lose credibility. Conservative voters have been awakened by Trump and his polarizing rally tactics.

He has reduced unemployment numbers, and the United States has the lowest Black unemployment rate in its history, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. He has hit the heart of working-class Americans and empowered the once-silent majority. Conservatives are proud, loud and ready to win the 2020 presidential election.
