Many potential presidential candidates have been on the rise as the 2020 election cycle heats up. The following is a list of those who are challengers to Trump in the upcoming election, from the least threatening to those who pose a serious danger to Trump’s second term.


17. John Delaney

DROPPED OUT: A former member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Maryland, Delaney announced his bid for the presidency on July 28, 2017, making him the first Democrat to officially announce their intention of running in 2020. He has been frequently referred to as a moderate, although he concedes that he does not fit into a specific political identity and that he spans from a completely progressive, liberal end of the spectrum to a more moderate “solutions-oriented” one. Although Delaney launched his campaign at such an early date in order to gain name recognition, he is one who will soon drop from the radar (if he was ever on it to begin with) and does not pose a threat to other candidates.
