2020 Election: Determining Direction of Nation


Regardless of which side of the political aisle one finds themselves on, the 2020 presidential election is certainly a very consequential one as it pertains to the direction of the United States of America.

The American voters have an important decision ahead of them in November. The extremely complicated decision of who will be “The Leader of the Free World,” will boil down to a seemingly simple question.

What direction would the people like to see the United States of America go in the coming years?

Do they like the current state of the country under the leadership of President Donald J. Trump, or would they like to vote out President Trump in order to have a new leader on Jan. 20, 2021.

The Equinox understands how important the upcoming election is, in addition to the Democratic primary race.

We have an obligation to the FDU community to cover the 2020 election the best that we can, and that is exactly what we plan on doing.

The Equinox has not been known for its political coverage in the past, but that will change in the coming months.

The gravity of the moment means The Equinox has to step up to the plate and report on how the candidates’ policies impact members of the FDU community.

Whether it be the forgiveness of student loan debt, a revamped healthcare system or a whole host of other policy proposals, the FDU community will be impacted. Whether its directly or indirectly by who is the President of the United States in a less than a year.

All voices deserve to be heard, and that is what The Equinox will do through the prism of  our political coverage.

While we cannot write anything that has not already been written by the bigger newspapers in this country, what we can do is provide a glimpse into the mind of a very important demographic, 18-25 year olds.

Both the Democratic and Republican candidates for president will be heavily courting the vote of the young people. At such a diverse institution like FDU, it could provide a microcosm of society as a whole.

The Equinox will also be utilizing guest writers so the FDU community will be given the best political coverage possible.

The Editorial Board will be endorsing a candidate in the Democratic primary race in the coming days, and this is something the Equinox is very excited about.

The Equinox is looking forward to covering the biggest stories in politics in the coming months, and we hope that members of the FDU community will welcome this shift.
