The United States presidential election of 2020 was the 59th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Incumbent President John Kasich of Ohio and Vice President Marco Rubio of Florida defeated Democratic Party nominee Senator Elizabeth Warren of Mass. and running mate Governor Gavin Newsom of California.
The incumbent president, John Kasich, was eligible to be elected to a second term and was unopposed of the nomination.
In early 2016, it was believed Donald Trump would receive the nomination. However, after winning Ohio, John Kasich changed the game. He won the nomination and chose Marco Rubio as his running mate.
While Kasich was relatable to voters, Warren felt too much like a helicopter mom to youngsters. Also, Warren was caught on tape calling the homosexual demographic "puppets".

Kasich would easily defeat Warren as he had a very good approval rating. This was the biggest win for a Republican since 1988 and the first time in history that a Republican candidate won Washington D.C.
