The 2020 presidential race is in full swing, and the first test of the campaign is the critical state of Iowa. While President Donald Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis are both popular in the key state, it appears that expectations for their performance may be too high. Iowa is a major political battleground, as it can decide the fate of a candidate and potentially the winner of the election. In the 2016 Republican primary, Trump swept the state with nearly 33 percent of the vote. DeSantis, on the other hand, hasn’t made much of an impact in the state. He’s visited several times, but hasn’t been endorsed by any major Iowa state party leaders, nor has he held any major rallies or events there. Trump currently holds a slight lead in the polls in Iowa, but he is facing some stiff competition. Former Vice President Joe Biden leads Trump in some polls and both Senator Bernie Sanders and Senator Elizabeth Warren have recently started to pick up support. All of these factors could lead to Trump not doing as well as expected in the Iowa caucus. DeSantis is in a similar situation. He has not made much of a showing in Iowa and has not been able to build as much support as Trump. He’s recently seen a bump in the polls due to his endorsement of Trump’s state of emergency declaration. However, this may not be enough to save him from a disappointing finish in Iowa. While expectations may be too high for President Trump and Governor DeSantis in Iowa, it is important to remember that the 2020 electoral season is only beginning. Both of these candidates have the potential to make a major impact and could still win the nomination if the polls continue to move in their favor. Ultimately, only time will tell.
