The election of 2020 could not be more different from the last.
The political world is divided over the next presidential race.

The 2018 elections were the most polarised in American history, and in many ways, they were the closest in American politics since World War II.
On the Democratic side, Bernie Sanders won the Democratic presidential nomination by more than 50 points over Hillary Clinton, who received about 42 percent of the vote.
Bernie Sanders’ victory is the first time in history that a major party nominee won a primary with fewer than 50 percent of votes cast.
But on the Republican side, Donald Trump lost the presidency to the then-Republican nominee, who lost to a Democrat by nearly 3 million votes, and the House of Representatives, where Republicans have held majorities since taking control in 2017.
