Campaign 2020: Top Democratic Presidential Candidates 2020.
The elections are almost here and the Democrats are beginning to turn their attention to 2020. The Democratic main elections are a year away, and yet multiple are vying for the Democratic 2020 nominations for presidency. The democratic field of presidential candidates is congested with 23 confirmed candidates, multiple maybes and one committee.
Threshing them down could be a tough task for the voters and contributors because they seem to be running on similar platforms. Some of their platforms include, reducing inequality, improving conditions for the American middle class, promoting universal healthcare and pushing regulations to control climate change. Democratic presidential candidates 2022 are required by the Federal Election commissions to register their candidacy within 15 days of spending or receiving 5,000$, but some have registered without spending any amount. So which candidates are we going to see on debates?
Which Democratic Presidential Candidate are going to be on Debates?
Obviously, not all candidates will be seen on debates. The Democratic National Committee has put in place guidelines to limit its debate to 20 participants. Eligible candidates are those who have registered 1% in 3 polls or raised funds from 65,000 unique donors (minimum of 200 per state within 20 states). In a situation where more than 20 candidates qualify, those meeting both thresholds will qualify. In the history of America, this is the largest presidential primary field registered by any party. It surpasses the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 which had 17 major candidates. After Hillary Clinton lost to Trump in the previous elections, the Democrats were seen as not having a clear leader. This lead to division in the party and the Senate Democrats have shifted to immigration, healthcare and college tuition platforms.
The 2020 election candidates that are officially in include: NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock,Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet, Former Vice President Joe Biden, South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton, California Rep. Eric Swalwell, Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, former Gov. John Hickenlooper, Gov. Jay Inslee, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Cory Booker, Sen. Kamala Harris, ex-San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, former Rep. John Delaney, Miramar, Fla., Mayor Wayne Messam, author Marianne Williamson, and former tech executive Andrew Yang.
According to several surveys, the former vice president is leading in every poll, followed closely by senator Bernie Sanders. Joe could have loved to run back in 2016 but he was moaning his son at that moment. His age is an issue because if he won the 2020 election he would be 78 years. Regardless of his age, Joe Biden is cementing his place as the frontrunner. On May 18th, Joe showcased his skills in Philadelphia at his launching speech. What is the secret behind Biden’s outstanding poll numbers? Simply old people. Showing his good record governing with former president Obama, he is gaining voters from a certain age group. According to recent polls, nearly half of the 50 years and above Democrats are supporting him. Biden is selling a seductive offer of redeeming people from Trump’s catastrophic era.
Senator Bernie Sanders
The senator remains a force to be reckoned with because he has a combination of money and people power in his corner. In the opening months his campaign he raised over $17 million from 500,000 donors. His campaign focus on grassroots organizing is proving to be peerless in the 2020 elections. He has managed to raise the progressiveness and enthusiasm of young voters. These are the main foundation of the Democrats base that Clinton struggled to seduce. Sanders main problem is his age because he will be turning 79 come 2020.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren
How could have the 2016 elections turned out if Warren had challenged Clinton in the primary elections? I guess that one of the greatest questions in the Democrats camp. Warren who is a former Harvard law school professor has had a blooming career mainly because of her attacks on the financial industry and banks. She got under Trumps skin through Twitter in the last election campaign. Her policies have made her stand out over her competitors. She is calling to wipeout student’s debts for millions of Americans as it would save them tones of money. She disagreed with Joe Biden on the 2005 bankruptcy, which she argued it word put pressure on the hardworking Americans. Warren will be 76years old come 2020 3 years younger than Trump.
The 2020 Democratic candidates all want a chance to topple Trump and may the best candidate win. The important thing is to elect a leader that has our needs at heart and will serve us well. The 2020 presidential election candidates are all qualified for the position but only one will become the President. The great people of America will have tough decisions to make, so let us vote wisely.
