Who Is Winning The 2020 Presidential Primaries? Here’s Your One-Stop Guide

[ad_1]

It’s been a long road to the 2020 primaries, which seemingly began… well, almost immediately after Donald Trump was sworn in as president in 2017. (Seriously: His team filed re-election paperwork on January 20, hours after the inauguration.) And while plenty of Democratic hopefuls — and even some Republicans! — have made their ambitions known, the country’s most arduous and expensive job interview has narrowed the field considerably.

So who will face off at the polls on November 3, 2020? The Democratic candidate will be determined at the Democratic National Convention this July in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and President Trump will almost certainly clinch the Republican nomination in August. But after a number of primary elections and caucuses, we have a better idea of where candidates stand. After isolated votes in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina, former Vice President Joe Biden, Senator Bernie Sanders, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and Senator Elizabeth Warren all headed to the polls on Tuesday (March 3) to battle it out for their party’s nomination.

It will take a while for every state and territory to cast their primary ballots, and there are sure to be surprises along the way. Below, your cheat sheet to the 2020 presidential race.
