The Presidential Election is less than a month away and President Trump is closing the gap in several crucial battleground states. It is already starting to look like the upcoming election could be close in terms of electoral votes. There are several swing states that could genuinely go either way. We are going to be looking at several of the battleground states to project what might happen on election day.
Arizona has been trending towards the Democrats for many years, and it is very possible that 2020 could be the year that it finally falls into the Democrats’ column within the Electoral College. President Trump won the state over Hillary Clinton by around 3.5% in the previous election. That equates to approximately 90,000 votes in favor of the Republicans in 2016.Read More »
The state of Florida has always been recognized as a toss-up state, and it will once again be an imperative state for both candidates in this election. President Trump and former Vice President Biden are within the polling margin of error in this state. Trump carried Florida by 1.2% in 2016 and secured all the Electoral Votes within the state. President Trump absolutely has to win the state of Florida or he will probably lose his re-election campaign.
The good news for the President is that Florida typically leans towards the Republicans in General Elections. There is a reasonably good chance that Florida turns red on Election Night.
Hillary Clinton narrowly won the state of Nevada in 2016 but ultimately lost the election to Donald Trump. President Trump believes he can win the state of Nevada by convincing Latino voters to swing towards the Republicans. Joe Biden has struggled to solidify the support of the Latino community, and that could prove to be problematic in this election.
There is a good chance that the Democratic Party will ultimately win the state of Nevada in 2020. Trump believes he can generate enough enthusiasm to swing the state to his column. This is definitely not a must-win state for either party, but that doesn’t mean that either candidate is simply going to let the 6 Electoral Votes slip away to the opposing party.
Several recent polls show a tight race in Georgia for the upcoming election. President Trump won this state by 5.1% in 2016, and there is no reason to believe that the Republicans will lose it this time around. Joe Biden is attempting to try to win the state, but it really doesn’t seem to be making the type of dent that he needs to win the state.
In the earlier months of 2020, it looked increasingly likely that Joe Biden would flip North Carolina in the upcoming election. That possibly is now starting to come into question, as Donald Trump has rapidly closed the gap in recent polls. This is an important state for both candidates in the 2020 election. Trump needs to lock-in the Southern states to give himself the best chance at re-election. North Carolina and Florida are imperative for the incumbent, and only time will tell if he has the votes to put himself over the top in this crucial state.
The great state of Ohio has been slowly drifting away from toss-up status and appears to be leaning towards the Republicans. A Republican has never won an election without the state of Ohio. Donald Trump is likely to win the state as he has been recently polling far ahead of his opponent, Joe Biden. Trump won by nearly 8.0% in the 2016 election and it has been trending farther away from toss-up status for many election cycles.
This is going to be a stressful state for the Democrats on Election Night. President Trump has made a significant effort to try and flip the state of Minnesota into the Republican column. The state is worth 10 Electoral Votes and has been trending away from the Democrats for several election cycles. Hilary Clinton only won the reliably blue state over Donald Trump by 43,000 votes. If enthusiasm turns out to be a problem for the Democrats, then the country might witness the state of Minnesota lock in its Electoral Votes for President Trump in November.
