Election 2020 was a vote like no other before.

voters’ main concerns were the US collapsing economy and the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. America got divided. People’s opinion of which was more important fell along starkly partisan lines. Those who viewed the pandemic as the most pressing issue favored Joe Biden for president and US citizens who named the economy and jobs, broke overwhelmingly toward re-electing Donald Trump.

Biden’s supporters said they believed the country was heading in the wrong direction while Trump had attempted to focus the campaign on anything other than the pandemic; it remained a defining issue. More than four in 10 voters said it was the most important problem facing the country, far more than any other issue.
