Election 2020

Washington Policy Sector

How much will Medicare policy be impacted by the outcome of the 2020 election?

We expect the 2020 US general election to be decided by a few counties, in keeping with recent precedent. We believe a win for President Trump could stem from one of two scenarios: (1) low-turnout race with multiple candidates to fracture anti-Trump sentiment, and/or (2) successful branding of a “choice” election between “America First vs. Socialism.”

If the election is a straight referendum on the President, as were the 2018 midterms, we would expect him to lose. However, a Senate majority will be critical to the advancement of any President’s agenda in 2021, and we will be laser-focused on the Senate races in the Electoral College swing states, which will be highly competitive and likely voted in concert with the Presidential ticket.

What we’re watching:

  • Senate races in Electoral College swing states
  • Fortress America/China
  • Tech lash
  • Income inequality
