US Presidential Election

US Presidential Election: To Vote, or Not to Vote – That is the Question

As the 2020 election creeps into view, the United States is a country divided. With polarisation increasingly prominent, and ever-stronger partisan loyalty, the famed ‘floating voter’ is nearing extinction.

Recent research has found that 93% of the electorate have some sort of partisan lean, with only 7% considered truly neutral.

US Presidential Election

There are however plenty of other ways in which the market might like a Blue-nami, from pragmatic trade policy to combined loose fiscal and monetary policy.
