Will Donald Trump be re-elected? Show more Show less
Back to question

In 2016, billionaire realtor Donald Trump won the US Presidential election, confounding polling forecasts, expert opinion, and mainstream press predictions. In the intervening four years, Trump's leadership has divided the nation. His critics blame Trump for deepening social cleavages, and say he has legitimised racism, deepened economic inequality, and reversed crucial climate change legislation. Others support his re-election, citing his economic record and calling his America First policy vital in the age of uncertainty. So, will Donald Trump be re-elected?

Donald Trump has proven himself as a strong President since he took up office in 2016. Much evidence suggests that his supporter numbers have grown, and will lead him to victory in the 2020 US election.
