As the clock winds down toward the Iowa and New Hampshire primary contests in February, the field of 2020 Democratic presidential candidates continues to expand and contract, while a couple of outlier Republicans are mounting a challenge to the incumbent. Meanwhile, impeachment seems sure to make an impact on both the presidential and congressional races. We will consult Kyle Kondik of the nonpartisan election newsletter Sabato’s Crystal Ball for expert analysis and forecasts after the nation’s first two 2020 primaries.

Kyle Kondik is the communications director for the University of Virginia Center for Politics and managing editor of its newsletter, Sabato’s Crystal Ball. He is the author of a 2016 book on Ohio’s presidential voting history, “The Bellweather,” and appears frequently on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and PBS NewsHour.
