The United States presidential election of 2020 was the 59th quadrennial presidential election. It was held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. The contest was between the Republican national ticket of Senator Mark Kirk from Illinois and Representative Thomas Massive from Kentucky and the Democratic national ticket of former Govenor Martin O'Malley of Maryland and former Education Secretary Arne Duncan.

Mirk won the majority of the popular vote and a wide margin in the electoral college, supported by the failure of the incumbent Democratic President Joe Biden to stem the early 2020s Recession. O'Malley also faced a series of miscues and gaffes that affected a strong early campaign lead. This allowed Kirk to win by the highest popular margin since the 1988 election.
