Pew Research Poll

August 17, 2020 |

This is, in so many ways, an extraordinary Presidential race.  I have gone through every past election and tried to find an analog, and I cannot.  The 1832, 1864, 1972 races were all re-election campaigns by incumbents who were broadly hated, but none had the opponent's primary attraction in August being that he was not the President.  1864 comes closest with people wondering what McClellan had to offer besides not being Lincoln.
