Though we’re in the early stages of the 2020 campaign cycle, voters have already delivered a verdict on one thing: They are seeking a candidate who stands for something.

On the Republican side, President Trump has gained full control of a party that once viewed him with suspicion, drawing only token opposition in the primaries. As president, he has mostly pursued the type of policies, a mix of traditional Republicanism with more populist stances on immigration and trade, that he campaigned on. And he has maintained the same smashmouth political style. Whether they like him or are repulsed by him, people generally know what they’re getting with Trump.
