A 2020 Democratic Run Down


Danny Buckwell, Jr. Chief Editor

2020 elections are coming up soon and whether you are supporting a Republican or a Democrat, everyone should know who the presidential candidates are in the Democratic Party. There are 12 Democrats still running for president, but the election started with 28 Democrats meaning that 16 of them dropped out. The Democrats still running are Joseph Biden, Michael Bloomberg, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Tom Steyer, Elizabeth Warren, Tulsi Gabbard, Michael Bennet, Deval Patrick, John Delaney, and Andrew Yang. The leading Democrats are Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and Tom Steyer.

Joe Biden is doing the best with his polling numbers because he has an average of 27%. On the other hand, Bernie Sanders (19%) and Elizabeth Warren (16%) are very similar people and have close poll numbers. If one of them drop out and runs for vice president, the poll numbers would go up for the person that stays and we would have a good pair for VP. Both Bernie and Elizabeth want a wealth tax so everyone can go to colleges and doctors for free. Although this may work, the people in America that have a lot of money might try to not pay the money. If this happens, we might not have free education and health care like they are saying we will get. Next is Pete Buttigieg who has an average of 9% in polling which is great for the first homosexual to run for president without hiding it and he served in the military as a lieutenant for 7 months. Amy Klobuchar is the next person leading as Democrat with an average of 4% in polling and the last leading Dem is Tom Steyer with only an average in polling of 1% and less.

I think that Michael Bloomberg has a good chance not just because he is super rich, but because he is a moderate unlike most other Democrats which are leftists. Even though he only has an average of 5% in polls, he is doing pretty good and if he wins he would be the first Jewish president. I also think Pete Buttigieg is doing very well and he is very interesting because if he won he would be the youngest president ever. Though I do like some of Elizabeth Warren’s ideas and she would be the first woman to be president if she wins, I don’t think that she will win. I think the same thing about Warren and Sanders. Even though they have been leading candidates for months and they think about the same things, they have been fighting over sexism because it has been said that Sanders told Elizabeth Warren cannot win the election. Thus, I think neither of them have as good as a chance as Joe Biden unless they figure this out. If they figure this problem between them out, they could be a good VP and President pair and get more votes because one of them would have dropped out, but if they don’t then Joe Biden will continue to lead this race and probably still lose against President Trump.

In the Republican Party Trump’s polls are all the way up to 88%, showing that his supporters have stayed by him and that he will mostly likely win this presidential election if no Democrat can get close enough to where he is now, if none of the Democrats can improve from their position now, then Trump will win this election…

Once again.
