The Democrats have not nominated a white male for presidency since John Kerry in 2004, and their non-male and nonwhite candidates have managed quite well. Barack Obama won two terms winning more than 50 percent of the vote, and Hillary Clinton received 3 million more votes than Trump. While nonwhite males have won elections, Avenatti stated in an interview with Time that this election requires a white male. He says that though it’s not fair, white males carry more weight. This year’s midterm elections, there are more than 40 House races where either a nonwhite or nonmale Democrat is going up against a white male Republican, as well as four Senate races and eight gubernatorial races. The results of these elections will shed some light on what we can expect from the 2020 race.
