The 2020 United States Presidential Election is only two and a half months away. The American people in November will elect a President for the next four-year term. It is still not known who will lead the country next. Whether Donald Trump will come to power as President for the second time, or his Democratic opponent who will replace him.

What is certain is that the Democrats and Republicans must convince the people of the United States to choose one of the candidates. The progress of democracy in that country is increasingly felt.

To reassure voters, the two presidential candidates, the incumbent Donald Trump and Joe Bidden of the Democratic Party, have started their campaign. Both are working hard to become the 46th President of the United States.

Observers and several surveys named Joe Bidden as the favorite candidate. Joe Bidden, who in the past accompanied Barack Obama as Vice President, based on research results last week or since the official campaign began, shows his national superiority over Donald Trump. Even so, the two presidential candidates still have to fight to win in several places often called swing states.

Swing states are several states in the United States where voters tend to flip between the two parties in  each election cycle and could determine the victory of the presidential candidate. Based on the results of an interim survey, the two presidential candidates, namely Trump and Bidden, have an equal chance of winning in those states. Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin are often said to be swing states where tough competition occurs.

Along with the campaigns carried out by the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, opinions are usually voiced by various survey institutions. Experts and observers will also speak up through the mass media. Survey results and opinions as well as news coverage may influence people's choices. But four years ago, the facts showed that the campaign method and content as well as the strategic approach to voters largely determined election results.

If in November, the Democratic party candidate manages to win over most of the votes, the US  state policies then, both internal and external, are very likely to change.
