We’re a little over a year from electing, or re-electing, the president of the United States. As you can see, right now is the time to lay the campaign groundwork, find and secure donors, and refine messaging for when the national stage is on our TVs in August 2020. The Democrats need to put up a formidable opponent who is able to take on the insults, childish rhetoric, and quick anger of Donald Trump, which we have seen, is a challenge.
That’s why now is the time to start thinking about the 2020 election, and how you can have an impact. With social media and digital tools at our fingertips today, we live in the age of the individual, which means you don’t have to stand on the sidelines anymore. Right here, right now with this blog, I am using my voice to impact the forthcoming election year before it’s too late; and you can, too.
Here’s how you can have an impact in the 2020 presidential election:
- Work with College Students:
More than 60% of college students believe that the 2020 election will be more important for the country than any other election in our lifetime. Nearly 66% of female students believe that next year’s election is more important than past contests. College students are educated, young, and passionate about the future, which means they are ready to get to work and do everything they can to make a change.
- Play into Trump Fatigue:
The sitting president does not have stellar approval ratings right now; this can be used to everyone’s advantage if approached properly. People are experiencing Trump fatigue. They’re sick of the tweets and they’re sick of the name calling. They want someone else who can give them hope. In the same survey above, many Republican students said they would consider an alternative to Trump, but that it depends on who the nominee is. This is a great sign, and something you should note – play into Trump fatigue in your blogs, social media posts, etc.
- Organize Events with Libertarians:
People often forget that our country has a third party, called Libertarians, which believe in the littlest amount of government as possible. Based on Trump’s spending, military investments, foreign aid, and other nationalist policies that make him anything but small government, consider swaying libertarians to cross the aisle and entertain a new president in 2020.
- Get Active in Any Way You Know How:
There are a lot of ways to get involved in the 2020 election. For starters, you can blog about it on Medium, LinkedIn, and WordPress, sharing it to your social profiles. You can post about it on Instagram, Facebook, etc. as well as share posts from reputable sources to educate your followers. You can open your own website and sell products in support of quality and unity. You can volunteer with local Democratic nonprofits. You can join activist groups. And the list goes on.
Now is the time to help me make a difference in the 2020 presidential election. Don’t let the fight intimidate you. Together, we’re stronger than we are apart.
