The most recent story on Election Central examines the recent polls and information on the upcoming 2020 election.

The 2020 presidential campaign season will be unlike any we have ever seen before. Not only does the nation seem deeply divided in response to everything from policing and race relations to immigration reform and health care, but lingering fears over COVID-19 mean that the usual campaigning techniques no longer apply. Candidates face many difficulties when organizing large rallies, fundraisers, or sending volunteers door to door to chat with voters. There is strong speculation that the majority of ballots counted in November will be cast via mail, rather than in person. In the wake of all this change and confusion, how can we learn how the candidates are performing? What are people balancing their interest level in the election against their concerns over illness, job loss, or social isolation? Here, Election Central gives you a heads up about public response to the candidates right here, right now . . . as well as what that might mean for November.
