Until the Iowa Caucuses on February 3rd, 2020!

Iowa Caucuses Republican Speculation.

So before November 3rd 2020 presidential election, the two main political parties will start reducing the number of candidates for President by determining who will finish first in the Iowa Caucus. The real question is? who will finish in the top half of each party. The most important part of the Iowa caucuses is to determine who has the ability to survive financially, Because It is highly unlikely that an individual candidate will go on to win there parties nomination with out finishing in the top half of the Iowa Caucuses.? This next Iowa caucuses will start with almost 20 Democratic and at Least 2 Republican candidates for President. President Trump who is up for re election in 2020, survived most of the 2018 midterms elections with just losing the House of Representatives, however with a single challenger on the horizon from the Republican party will this be the beginning of a  serious threat to his winning his parties Nomination or just a media distraction. Over all the question is still how will the sitting President do on the November 3rd 2020 election.

About Iowa's First in the Nation Status


The State of Iowa will currently hold its caucus on February 3rd, 2020.  Under the state law, it is sanctioned to be the first caucus held in the Nation. 
(See http://www.legis.state.ia.us/IACODE/2001SUPPLEMENT/43/4.html.)
  In the last 40 years, starting in the 1970s when Iowa moved its' caucus to be the first caucus in the nation, Iowa has become a predictor in identifying the top three candidates from both parties.  Only those candidates who finish in the top half of their party typically move on to campaign strong in other states. In fact, in the past, the Iowa Caucuses have become more of a clearing field in determining which candidates will stay in the race and which candidates will throw in the towel. This would appear to be a more accurate depiction of Iowa's role in the presidential campaigns than in determining which candidate will be nominated by their respective party. Iowa does play a big part in allowing candidates a chance to showcase their political prowess to a fairly middle of the road state.  (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iowa_caucus.)  In 10 out of 12 Caucuses, Iowa has picked the top 3 candidates from both parties who would later win their parties nomination. In 7 out of 12 Caucuses, Iowa has actually picked the winning candidate who would later go on to become the next president of the United States.

Who is running for President in 2020.

 The state of Iowa will see a visit by almost all of the individuals running for president in 2020. The current count has about 25 candidates, 23 Democrats and 2 republicans.  No all  of these individuals will be running by the end of March 2020. Only a select few will make it.
