Next fall, it will be determined who will either become the new U.S. president or remain U.S. president for the next four years. With democratic debates well on their way every so often, we are starting to see who may have what it takes to run against current President Donald Trump for the presidency of 2020 to 2024.
There are still a lot of people wanting to get the democratic nominee spot that will push them one step closer to the opportunity of being the next president of the United States of America. The more well-known candidates running at the moment include Vermont senator Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren, former Vice President Joe Biden, California senator Kamala Harris, and South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg. These are, for the most part, the candidates that have appeared in polls and have been campaigning across the country over the past months. They have also shown more of a fight than the others in the past few debates.
The months leading up to the election will be pivotal in the run for candidates and citizens alike. A total of 19 democrats are still competing against each other for the nominee slot compared to the current four (including Trump) for the Republican party. There have never been this many Democratic candidates running for president at one time; however, this was probably to be expected given the current public opinion for who’s in the White House.
There are a few strong candidates that certainly have a shot at being Trump’s rival for the 2020 election. Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders are averaging well over the 10’s in percentage points with Biden and Warren averaging about 25 percent of polls each. The runner-up for these include Pete Buttigieg and Kamala Harris battling it out for four percent, with everyone else currently aiming at around two percent or lower.
With all of this rivalry, it is far too early to determine if this much uncertainty could be an accidental push towards Trump keeping his presidential seat. But with the next Democratic debates, we’ll have a better perspective on who we should be rooting for.
