Since the days of the 2016 presidential election and subsequent rise to power of President Donald Trump, a majority of Americans are looking forward to the next cycle that will culminate in Trump’s possible re-election Nov.r 3, 2020. Most likely, Trump will be re-nominated by the Republican Party, as no sitting president has lost re-nomination since Franklin Pierce in 1852. However, a majority of Americans do not want this.
