It doesn’t matter if you love him or hate, there’s no denying the fact that Trump knows how to get people to vote for him. Despite the fact that there are horrible things written about our President on a daily basis, Trump doesn’t seem to be losing any momentum.
Even though Donald Trump is seeing more and more Republicans disagree with him, and the fact that his close friend and associate, Roger Stone, was arrested and indicted, favor is still in his corner to win the 2020 presidential election. As of right now, President Donald Trump is 3-2 in favor for winning the election in 2020, even after Sen. Bernie Senators announced his official bid announcement.
Bernie Sanders officially announced that he was intending on running for president again in 2020 as a Democratic nominee, but he still stands behind other early-declared candidates in the race. After announcing his bid, Sanders’ raised $4 million in less than 12 hours, but we’re not entirely sure if that’s going to help him at all.
Even though he made the announcement and raised the money, it didn’t seem to affect the numbers very much. “There were no changes to Sanders’ odds following the announcement. We had it as a foregone conclusion that he will be in the Democratic mix,” says sportsbook brand manager Dave Mason from BetOnline.ag.
One of the things that could hurt Bernie’s campaign is the accusations that were made against his 2016 campaign office. Reports of potential misconduct and sexual harassment could derail the Bernie train before it even gets rolling.
Bernie Sanders is obviously not the only person vying for the chance to knock President Trump out of the race for reelection. There are currently 12 lawmakers that have entered the presidential race as Democrats, among them, are Sen. Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Cory Booker, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii.
Kamala Harris was a little hesitant about announcing her bid, but she has finally come out with the announcement that she will be running for president in 2020. She has already gained the support of many celebrities, including Ellen DeGeneres. Still, Trump is still receiving more bets than Harris and former Vice President Joe Biden
Kamala Harris is right behind Trump in the odds count, with odds of 8-1. Even though they haven’t formally announced their bid, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke is right behind Harris with odds 10-1, and former Vice President Joe Biden with odds of 12-1. And last, but surely not least, Sanders with odds of 14-1.
Despite all of the negative attention that he’s been receiving lately, how can Trump possibly be in the lead? Well, first off, Trump is extremely good at campaigning and he absolutely loves doing it. Throughout his entire presidency, he has continued holding campaign-style rallies and he even filed for reelection the very first day that he entered into office.
Now that the numbers are in, how is Trump going to hold the lead? Well, for starters, Trump is surely going to benefit from the systematic features of the American political system. Since World War II, there have only been two elected presidents who have attempted to win a second term but lost.
The first one was President Jimmy Carter, who unfortunately was affected by the poor economy at the time. And the second was George H. W. Bush, who was also affected by the economy, but at the time, Republicans had been in control for 12 years and the country was ready for a change. Needless to say, if Trump is able to hold most of the states that voted for him in 2016, then you can count on seeing Trump as president for another four years.
