Today is Election Day

The 2020 election is here today. Even though the 2020 presidential election has all the attention. There are 35 Senate seats up for election, including a special election that’ll take place in Arizona with the potential of major changes to our legislative branch of government.  

Presidential election

If Joe Biden wins the presidency and the Democratic party succeeds in flipping the Senate, then-President Biden would have a clear path to implement its legislative policies.

That is because The democratic party already controls the Congress with very little to null chances for Republican to reverse it.

If President Donald Trump wins the presidency and the Democratic party flipped the Senate then we would be heading towards a challenging legislative agenda during President Donald Trump second term his second term.

Perhaps Democrats are going to go hard after President Donald Trump and its administrations. The party would most likely impose a very high level of scrutiny.

If President Donald Trump wins the presidency and the Republican party keeps the Senate then it would be just a continuity.

Nevertheless, we should expect an aggressive agenda from the current administration.

If Joe Biden wins the presidency and the Republican party keeps the Senate, then-President Biden would have a challenging legislative agenda.

Indeed, in this case, president, Joe Biden would have to demonstrate his negotiation abilities to build bridges with Republicans senators to achieve his legislative agenda.

Either way to become The next President of The United States of America a candidate needs to clinch at least 270 Electoral College.

Senate election

 The Senate is now split, 53-47 with a Senate Republican majority. Consequently, three or four seats will determine Senate control, depending on which party wins the White House. The vice president breaks a tie in Senate votes.

There are 35 seats up for election in the US Senate this year. Republicans are defending 23 seats while the Democrats are defending 12. Democrats need a net gain of three seats to win control of the Senate if Joe Biden wins the presidency and four seats if Donald Trump wins re-election.
