The 2020 Presidential race is likely to be the most contentious in U.S. history.
President Trump is already preparing for the race, announcing key campaign officials.
And CNN just announced who Trump’s challenger is expected to be in 2020.
There has been raving speculation about who will challenge Trump in 2020.
Names like Oprah Winfrey and Bernie Sanders have been thrown around.
But according to a new poll Trump’s most probable challenger is former Vice President Joe Biden.
The polls used by CNN to claim that Biden is the frontrunner show him coming in at 27%, with Bernie Sanders trailing behind at 21%.
A Trump/Biden general election battle is sure to be a heated one.
In recent days, Biden and Trump engaged back and forth.
Biden stated that if he were in high school he would take Trump behind the “gym and beat the hell out of him.”
Trump responded on Twitter referring to Biden as “Crazy Joe Biden,” and telling him that he is “weak,” and would go down “fast and hard” in a fight.
Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy. Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault. He doesn’t know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way. Don’t threaten people Joe!

As reported by Breitbart:
“CNN on Thursday declared former Vice President Joe Biden is the early 2020 frontrunner for the Democrats.
Biden’s polling average in all national 2020 primary polls is 27%, and the only person even within striking distance right now is Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), who is at 21%, according to the analysis
At least two of the primary polls (RABA, Politico/Morning Consult) had Oprah Winfrey as one of the potential candidates, and Biden finished ahead of Winfrey and the other Democrats in those polls. CNN, which acknowledged that it is “entirely unreasonable” to forecast a winner this early, also pointed out that Biden is even currently leading in New Hampshire, which holds the first-in-the-nation primary after the Iowa caucuses. A February University of New Hampshire survey found Biden defeating Sanders and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), both of whom are from the region, by double digits.
Biden, whose advisers are reportedly planning a 2020 run, and Trump got into a war of words this week after Biden said he would take Trump behind the “gym and beat the hell out of him” if they were in high school and Trump made lewd remarks about women. Trump responded on Thursday by tweeting Biden is “trying to act like a tough guy” and “would go down fast and hard, crying all the way.”
According to CNN, “Biden versus Trump is probably the highest probability matchup compared to all the others at this moment in time, though it’s still a relative long-shot.”
While it is way too early to accurately predict who will be the Democrat nominee, it could very likely be Biden.
