Question: How do you feel about the 2020 election?

Answer: “I feel that this election has the potential to be one of the most lopsided elections in American history. In my opinion, there hasn’t been an election season that has been so polarizing like this one. With the impeachment trial and the aftermath, it will be a landslide for Donald Trump. The Senate will still be Republican-controlled, and the House will trend back towards the Republicans to take control, but I believe the Democrats retain control of the house… but barely.”

Question: Do you have a candidate that you would prefer to win?

Answer: “I would prefer Donald Trump the whole way. I firmly stand on a factual and moral standpoint that none of the Democrats have made an appealing case for me to want to vote for them in November. While I don’t necessarily like Donald Trump’s demeanor and attitude sometimes, he has done so much good for this country with his policies and I’m looking forward to the next four years.”
