Andrew Yang Suspends Presidential Campaign

February 11, 2020

Enterpreneur Andrew Yang ended his pursuit of the Democratic nomination on Tuesday. Yang had made a name for himself via his proposal of a $1,000 monthly universal basic income to help offset the reality that automation was significantly displacing workers. Yang believed this environment led to Donald Trump's victory in 2016.

His 'Yang Gang' was a core of fervent supporters, but it did not translate into significant votes in the first two states.  He received just 1% of the vote in Iowa, earning no delegates. Early returns in New Hampshire gave Yang about 3% of the vote.
