Is The ‘Year Of The Woman’ Ending As Female 2020 Campaigns Are Overshadowed?
Presidential campaigns for 2020 are already in full swing with a historic number of women running to become the leader of the free world.
The race is generally crowded as 14 candidates have officially announced their runs so far, and even more are expected to join in the near future.
Top female candidates like Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand and Kamala Harris have all come out swinging, taking strong stances on topics ranging from Medicare for All, the Green New Deal and even reparations. Each female candidate is proving to be different from the other, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar specifically is separating herself even more from the overall group.
The Minnesota Democratic senator is positioning herself as a moderate to appeal to the masses, repeatedly highlighting that her main objective is to “get stuff done.” She is running her campaign to attract progressive voters, but she is also making a conscious effort to not push away the undecided, Independent or even conservative voter.
But her policies — along with those of many of her fellow female candidates —are largely being overshadowed by the male celebrity-status candidates.
According to recent polls, the candidate leading the race hasn’t even officially announced his candidacy yet. Joe Biden has dominated the news cycle as speculations circulate that he may have already picked Stacey Abrams as his running mate.
Sen. Bernie Sanders is coming in second with an average support rate of 23 percent. (RELATED: Several Economists And Researchers Say Trump Is ‘On Track For A 2020 Landslide’)
Sen. Harris is actually polling as the third most popular candidate. Though the coverage of her campaign has been overshadowed by former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who announced his presidential campaign just more than a week ago.
Will “the Year of the Woman” cease to continue after the record-setting female House wins earlier this year?
