The race for the Democratic nominee for president is heating up, with a wide field and several candidates who could win the bid. The victor will then go head-to-head with current president Donald Trump for the 2020 presidency. Trump is the favorite to get re-elected but is helped by the fact that he is the clear choice from the Republican field. Once the Democratic nominee is picked, these odds could change drastically.
It is going to be an interesting next year and a half as the focus on politics has shot through the roof with the divisive Trump in the White House. He will be confident he can get re-elected, but the Democrats will also feel good about their chances provided they choose a nominee who gets the American people excited and invested.

Donald Trump upset Hillary Clinton for the presidency in 2016 and now is the one to beat in the 2020 election. Trump has solid odds to get re-elected. There is plenty of controversy surrounding his presidency, which is why there are a couple of other Republican candidates on the list. Vice President Mike Pence would be the presumptive nominee if Trump were to get impeached, which is why he is listed at +6500 odds. John Kasich is a more moderate Republican who may try to wiggle his way into the field.
Joe Biden was the vice president under Barack Obama and he is the favorite to win the Democratic nomination and go head-to-head against Trump. If Biden wins the primary, he will likely be the favorite in the general election, but he must get there first. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are a pair of progressive left wing candidates who will aim to knock him off. Sanders nearly pulled the upset over Clinton in 2016 and has great name recognition. Warren is gaining some momentum and is hoping to become a serious contender in the ensuing months.
Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg are two of the other main candidates for the Democratic nomination. The race could come down to those five names as a person like Beto O’Rourke seems to be losing some steam. Howard Schultz, the Starbucks CEO, is a longshot pick.
U.S. Presidential Election 2020 | Predictions
Our staff picks: ‘Sleepy’ Joe Biden at +370
It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Democrats took back the White House in 2020, but the trick is figuring out which nominee will advance from the field and face off against Trump. Harris and Warren would each love to become the first woman president and their odds seem a bit long, which could make for good choices. However, Biden is a well-known name who caters to the moderate part of the Democratic base and may also be able to convert some independents and Republicans that voted for Trump in 2016.
Pence is an intriguing choice at those odds because Trump still has more than a year to go to avoid all of the investigations and accusations being levied against him which could lead to an impeachment. In the end, Biden at these odds is a good bet.
