Facts about the branding for the 2020 class presidential candidates

A new survey of 1,258 U.S. voters by Crestline Custom Promotional Products reveals surprising facts about the branding for the 2020 class presidential candidates.

  • Logos: Democratic front runners Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden lead the pack in logo favorability — although the other Dem favorite, Elizabeth Warren, has the hands-down least popular wordmark.
  • Slogans: Americans are looking forward, if their preferences for candidate slogans are any indication; three of the six top-ranked slogans use the word “future.”
  • Names:  Voters showed a slight preference for last-name-only logos, deeming them “confident” and “polished,” whereas first-name-only logos seem more “memorable” but scored lower overall.
  • Colors: Jazzy logos in non-traditional colors are a nice idea in theory, but voters prefer patriotic palettes.
  • Resemblances: Topping the heap of embarrassing resemblances, Beto O’Rourke’s “We’re All in This Together” slogan was mocked for its similarity to the title of a song from the Disney movie High School Musical.

2020 class presidential candidates summary

“Elections are interesting because a lot of designs are released in a short span of time and they’re all trying to do basically the same thing. In this cycle, with such a diverse and crowded field, there was more risk-taking and experimentation than usual. The study was a great opportunity to ask voters directly what they like and what resonates with them.” - Dale Denham, Senior Vice President of Crestline Custom Promotional Products
