key swing states:

    A campaign autopsy by former President Donald Trump's chief pollster showed then-Vice President Mike Pence held an advantage over current Vice President Kamala Harris with swing-state voters, as well as over Trump and now-President Biden. In a 27-page report, pollster Tony Fabrizio analyzed exit polls from 10 key battleground states that Trump won in 2016 and split in 2020. Trump and Pence held only five of the 10 states they won in 2016, despite Harris and Biden each garnering favorability ratings below zero in the two groups. Pence scored a net positive rating with both groups. Five of the states — Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin — flipped to Biden after going for Trump in 2016. Another five — Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, Ohio, and Texas — went for Trump in 2016 and 2020. The full memo, which was circulated among top campaign aides last month, was...
    WASHINGTON (WJZ) — Maryland’s lone Republican congressman is one of 106 GOP lawmakers supporting a lawsuit brought by Texas against four key swing states that aims to delay those states from casting their electoral votes for President-elect Joe Biden. Rep. Andy Harris was the only Maryland lawmaker to sign on to an amicus brief that argues “the unconstitutional irregularities involved in the 2020 presidential election cast doubt upon its outcome and the integrity of the American system of elections.” The group is calling for the Supreme Court’s “careful and timely review” of the case. The lawsuit filed by Texas’ attorney general against the states of Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin seeks to delay the states’ certification of electors to the Electoral College, CBS News reports. Biden won all four states. Maryland’s electors will meet at noon on Monday to cast their votes for Biden. The 10 #MDelectors will meet at...
    Trump-aligned voters in four states dropped their lawsuits Monday morning, which had been designed to trip up President-elect Joe Biden's path to the White House.  CNN reported that cases in Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania federal courts were pulled.  They had been spearheaded by the law firm of conservative attorney James Bopp Jr., who explained to CNN 'because of [attorney-client] privilege and because I do not telegraph my next moves, I cannot comment.'       Election officials count absentee ballots in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Four voters in Wisconsin, who lived in other counties, tried to say that Milwaukee County and two other blue counties' ballots should be tossed because of different rules for absentee ballot processing President Donald Trump has refused to concede the election, with allies trying to use the courts to change the result. Four such lawsuits were pulled on Monday  President Donald Trump has refused to concede the election,...
    Election results revealed a striking data point: votes cast for third-party Libertarian candidate Jo Jorgensen in key swing states exceeded the margin between votes for President Trump and President-elect Joe Biden.  Some are calling Jorgensen’s third-party run a “spoiler” for President Trump. Jorgensen’s campaign could not be reached for comment on the accusation.  In Arizona, Biden is projected to win by a margin of 0.44 percent, while Jorgensen so far has cinched 1.5 percent of the vote. The margin between Trump and Biden was 14,746 votes-- a fraction of Jorgensen’s 50,293 votes.  LIBERTARIAN JO JORGENSEN DECLARES WORST PRESIDENT IN HISTORY-- AND IT MAY SURPRISE YOU  In Pennsylvania, Trump so far has lost by 0.67 percent, just over 45,000 votes. Jorgensen has won 77,655 votes, or 1.15 percent.  In Wisconsin, Trump lost by 0.62 percent, a difference of 20,539 votes. Jorgensen won 38,271 votes, 1.16 percent.  In Georgia, Biden holds such...
    Libertarian Party presidential candidate Jo Jorgensen has won more votes than President Donald Trump would need to close the gap with Joe Biden in four swing states — Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin — if current results hold. According to the latest numbers Tuesday morning: In Arizona, Biden has 1,648,642 votes (49.43%) and Trump has 1,633,896 votes (48.99%), a difference of 14,746 votes (0.44%).

If Jorgensen’s votes went to Trump, instead of allowing Biden to win these states, the president would win re-election, with 289 Electoral College votes. The Trump...

    They’re still counting the votes in a handful of the key battleground states in the presidential election – but a look at where the current vote totals stand points to a second straight White House race decided by razor thin margins. The Fox News Decision Desk projected on Saturday that Democratic presidenital nominee Joe Biden would win the state of Nevada and the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, giving the former vice president the electoral votes he needed to defeat President Trump and become president-elect. But the president has yet to concede, as he hopes that a flurry of lawsuits he’s filed and a couple of recounts in key states will reverse Biden’s victory.

    Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) joined some of his Republican colleagues in calling for a recount, audit, and full review of the election, stating Monday morning that “fewer than 100,000 votes total” separate former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump in key swing states. “Right now — there are fewer than 100,000 votes total — out of almost 150 million cast — separating AZ, GA, WI, & PA (plus other close states like NV) with a number of lingering questions,” the congressman, who defeated Democrat challenger Wendy Davis, said. “Recounting, auditing, & a full review is necessary. Patience. #StandUpForAmerica,” he added in the Monday morning tweet: Right now – there are fewer than 100,000 votes total – out of almost 150 million cast – separating AZ, GA, WI, & PA (plus other close states like NV) with a number of lingering questions.

A crowd of protesters demanding that vote counting in Detroit cease formed at the TCF Hall, a local election center, Steve Patterson of NBC News reported on Wednesday. He posted video of the event where the protesters crowded around the entrance to a room where votes were being counted: : "Step back! Step back!" a law enforcement official yelled as he tried to leave the room. The crowd was press up against the door. Another official identified himself as a member of the Detroit Health Department, drawing jeers from the crowd. He instructed the crowd to spread out if they're going to be inside, presumably because of concerns about the spread of the coronavirus. Other videos appeared to show the protesters at the center cheering "stop the count." President Donald Trump has falsely declared victory in...
    Cities Prepare for Unrest That Election Night Spared Them 4 Bakery Chains Quietly Vanishing This Year The Court Battle Over Key Swing States Has Just Begun. And Its Not Likely to Be Over Soon In the wee hours of the morning after Election Day, state officials were still tallying millions of mail-in and absentee ballots in key battleground states, and the presidential race remained too close to call. But that didn’t stop President Donald Trump from gathering his supporters in the East Room of the White House, falsely asserting he had already won, and promising he would challenge future election results in court. “We’ll be going to the U.S. Supreme Court,” he said. “We want all voting to stop. We don’t want them to find any ballots at 4 o’clock in the morning and add them to the list.” © Lorenzo Meloni—Magnum Photos for TIME A courthouse in Pennsylvania,...
    Joe Biden has motored to victory in Michigan, winning a nail-biter, overtime battle for the pivotal swing state, with CNN and NBC calling the race first on Wednesday afternoon. The Democratic presidential hopeful racks up another 16 electoral votes with the triumph, stealing another state Trump won in 2016 and taking a big leap closer to the 270 needed to win the White House. The razor’s edge race, however, was only called well into Wednesday, as Michigan was one of several battleground states without a clear winner on Election Night. The call was made despite President Trump’s re-election campaign announcing a lawsuit Wednesday to halt the counting of Michigan votes until campaign observers were given “meaningful access” to the process. Races also came down to the wire in other swing states, including Pennsylvania, Georgia and Wisconsin — where the Trump campaign demanded a recount even before the state was...

    Voters drop off their mail in ballots in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, November 2, 2020.Rachel Wisniewski | Reuters The Postal Service on Election Day failed to deliver a significant percentage of mail-in ballots to several states that could determine who wins the presidential contest between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden, a court filing revealed Thursday. The delivery rate is certain to be a key issue of discussion at a federal court hearing in Washington scheduled for noon ET Thursday, in a case where a judge has ordered the Postal Service to sweep its facilities for remaining mail-in ballots. The states seeing relatively poor levels of mail deliveries of ballots include Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, North Carolina and Wisconsin, all of which have yet to declare victors in their tallies for Trump, the Republican candidate, and the Democrat Biden. The current vote tallies in each of those states shows thin margins between the...
            by Dan McCaleb  President Donald Trump won the key battleground states of Ohio, Florida and Texas and he holds leads in all the others but Arizona as former Vice President Joe Biden’s path to victory narrowed. Trump so far has been declared the winner in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and West Virginia.

    Donald Trump's odds of winning the 2020 presidential race has reached an all-time high for the first time on Election Day as the final polls across the country begin to close. Bookies around the world are placing their bets on whether Trump will secure another four years in office or if he'll be ousted by Democratic challenger Joe Biden. Up until late Tuesday, Biden had been the frontrunner among betting markets with a 69 per cent chance of winning, according to gambling website Oddschecker.

    Joe Biden addresses a "drive-in" rally in Georgia, one of roughly a dozen swing states to watch on Election Day. After what’s felt like an interminable election cycle, we are finally on the doorstep to Election Day—even if “Election Day” is now something of a misnomer. In the presidential race, most states are already safely in the hands of either Joe Biden or Donald Trump. Biden likely starts with about 200 to 225 electoral votes, while Trump begins with around 125 to 150. What matters, of course, is what lies between: a dozen states, holding the key to 195 electoral votes. What’s notable is which states have hopped on—and fallen off—the target list. Colorado and Virginia, swingy or even red-leaning states for a generation, now seem likely to support Biden by double digits. Meanwhile, Texas and Georgia arrive squarely on the tossup roster, and a handful of states Trump flipped have moved back...
    President Trump on Sunday night said his campaign will bring election night challenges to key swing states that were granted mail-in ballot extensions. “We’re going to go in the night of – as soon as the election is over – we’re going in with our lawyers,” Trump told reporters in North Carolina before his third rally of the day, according to The Hill. The president blasted recent Supreme Court decisions out of Pennsylvania and North Carolina that granted both states mail-in ballot extensions — as long as the ballots are postmarked before Election Day. Pennsylvania was granted a three-day extension, while ballots in the Tar Heel state will be counted if they arrive by Nov. 12. “I think it’s a terrible thing when ballots can be collected after an election,” Trump said Sunday night. “I think it’s a terrible thing when people or states are allowed to tabulate ballots...

"Senior officials on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's campaign are increasingly worried about insufficient Black and Latino voter turnout in key states like Florida and Pennsylvania with only four days until the election, according to people familiar with the matter," Tyler Pager reported Friday. : "Despite record early-vote turnout around the country, there are warning signs for Biden.

According to new article in Bloomberg, Biden aides have identified three states — Arizona, Florida and Pennsylvania — where the African-American and Hispanic vote totals are lower than they would prefer at this point. Early voting across the country has soared in many places amid the coronavirus pandemic and Democrats are seeing massive surges among key demographics like young voters in states like Georgia and Texas.

    New York (CNN Business)America's jobs recovery continued in September, but with two weeks to go until Election Day, plenty of states still have unemployment rates higher than the national average.Three of them are key swing states: Pennsylvania's jobless rate stood at 8.1% last month, Michigan's was 8.5% and Ohio's came in at 8.4%, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Tuesday. The US average unemployment rate last month September stood at 7.9%.President Donald Trump and Joe Biden are battling for voters in these important states. Polls show Biden leading in Pennsylvania and Michigan, while the contenders are almost head-to-head in Ohio. The president is heading into Election Day with the highest unemployment rate on record since monthly tracking began in 1948.

    More than 14 million Americans have already voted in the presidential election, with thousands of people lining up for hours to cast their ballots early in several key swing states this week.  The coronavirus pandemic has undoubtedly raised the stakes for the 2020 presidential race which will be the culmination of a year mired with race issues as well as voter fraud allegations.  The unprecedented circumstances have also sparked debates on the early voting process during a time when going to the polls is considered a risky act. Early voting kicked off across multiple states this week, including Texas, Georgia,  Virginia and Tennessee, where thousands of people donned masks as they stood in line for hours at designated polling centers. Nationally, 14.6 million people have already cast ballots by mail or through in-person voting, compared to roughly 1.4 million at the same point four years ago, according to the United States...
    The Trump campaign has already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to run ads Trump can watch from the White House to raise his spirits. Facing plummeting polls and a budget crunch in the final stretch of the 2020 presidential race, Donald Trump's campaign has rearranged their television advertising budget, cutting spending in critical swing states like Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, and Iowa, and instead shoring up traditionally Republican states like Arizona and Georgia, according to ad spending tracked by Priorities USA. As the Trump campaign took millions of dollars worth of ads off the air in states that are key to Trump building a path to 270 Electoral College votes, it increased ad spending by $230,000 in the Washington, D.C., media market. It's a bizarre move given the city and the surrounding states of Maryland and Virginia are...
    President Trump has canceled upcoming television ad buys in Ohio and Iowa in a move his campaign touted as a sign of the strength of their position in the key states ahead of Election Day. The Trump campaign canceled ad buys worth $2.5 million in Ohio and $820,000 in Iowa for the upcoming week, according to data from ad-tracking firm Kantar Media’s Campaign Media Analysis Group.

            by Andrew Trunsky  Some Democrats in critical battlegrounds worry that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is not campaigning vigorously enough in their states. While Biden has taken a low-key approach to campaign across the country amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Democratic figures in Texas and North Carolina remarked that his method may not be enough to get him 270 electoral votes. Gilberto Hinojosa, the chair of the Texas Democratic Party, called Biden’s limited campaigning due to the pandemic a “pretty lame excuse,” the Associated Press reported, arguing that campaigning in Hispanic-heavy states like Texas and Arizona could increase his chances of victory in November. “I thought he had his own plane. He doesn’t have to sit with one space between another person on a commercial airline like I would,” he said.

    AlterNet September 25, 2020 3:51PM (UTC) This article originally appeared on AlterNet. President Donald Trump is not pleased with Fox News' latest poll projections for Pennsylvania and Ohio. According to the latest poll, Trump is trailing in the two, key battleground states that could be determining factors in the upcoming presidential election and he is refusing to accept even the possibility of an uphill battle to retain control of the Oval Office. The poll featured an analysis of Nevada, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. The results show a sizable lead for Biden in all three states, which is a significantly strongly Democratic lead compared to the 2016 election. In fact, the report also indicates that Biden's lead in Nevada and Pennsylvania is already considered "outside the margin of error." Ultimately, if today was Election Day, it would be relatively difficult for Trump to contest a loss. : Biden's projected edge reportedly comes mainly from...
    The very same white voters who gave Donald Trump the modest margins he needed to narrowly secure the presidency in 2016 have begun to turn on him in 2020 in numbers potentially too big for him to make up.

Minnesota: A CBS/YouGov poll show Biden winning white voters by 2 points after Trump won them by 7 points in 2018, according to exit polling. The state still went for Hillary Clinton by 1.5 points.

    (CNN)President Donald Trump's reelection campaign's early, aggressive play to cut into Democrats' advantage with Latino voters has Democratic elected officials and operatives concerned that a softening of support from the group could be decisive in November's election.Despite a message many say resonates with Spanish-speaking voters, those officials and operatives say Joe Biden's presidential campaign has been slow to commit the needed resources and time to at least match where Hillary Clinton finished with the key demographic in 2016.A string of polls shows Trump has increased his standing with Hispanic voters over the last four years. Although the President is still trailing heavily -- an analysis by CNN's Harry Enten found Biden is winning Hispanic voters by 28 percentage points -- Biden is underperforming Clinton, who led by 37 percentage points in an average of final pre-election points.

    After five months of tweets and soundbites from President Trump warning that voting by mail will lead to a “rigged election” and “massive voter fraud,” a clear partisan divide is forming among those participating in that process. Election officials in key general election battleground states are noticing a surge of requests for absentee ballots by Democrats – upending a trend of Republicans in some crucial states typically dominating voting by absentee ballot through the mail. In North Carolina, which last Friday became the first state to start sending out general election ballots to registered voters who requested them, more than three times as many Democrats than Republicans have sought ballots so far. And it’s not just North Carolina.

    Photo by Brendan Smialowski/Getty Images President Donald Trump once again lashed out at Fox News for their poll showing Joe Biden has the upper hand on him in multiple categories for the 2020 election. “Fox News Polls are, as in the past, Fake News,” Trump fumed on Twitter. “They have been from the beginning, way off in 2016. Get a new pollster. I believe we are leading BIG!” .@FoxNews Polls are, as in the past, Fake News. They have been from the beginning, way off in 2016. Get a new pollster.

    It remains something of a mystery why there is so little apprehension among liberal pundits and leading Democrats about the similarities between battleground-state polling for the 2020 presidential election and the 2016 contest pitting President Trump against Hillary Clinton — which as you might recall did not turn out as expected. Consider the case of Wisconsin. The RealClearPolitics average had Clinton up 6.5 points in Wisconsin on Election Day in 2016. In August of that year, she had been hovering at a 11.5 point advantage. Not a single poll featured on RCP during the entire campaign showed then-candidate Donald Trump winning the state. Yet when the chips were down in November, Trump had won the Badger State by fewer than 20,000 votes, edging out Clinton with a 0.7 percentage point average. Now turn to 2020. As I write, Democratic Party nominee Joe Biden is up by 3.5 points in the...
    Republicans are closing the voter registration gaps in key swing states, according to the Trump Victory data obtained by Axios. While Democrats hold an advantage in voter registrations in several key states, the Trump campaign and Republican National Committee are closing the gap, registering 100,000 new voters prior to the upcoming election. Many of those new registrations are in key swing states like Pennsylvania, Florida, and North Carolina — three states Donald Trump narrowly secured in 2016. According to the data obtained by Axios, the GOP has “lessened the margin by 133,000 registered voters in Pennsylvania and 87,000 voters in Florida” while gaining “a net 216,410 voters since Election Day 2016” in North Carolina. Republicans have also reclaimed a voter registration advantage in Iowa and are outpacing Democrats in Arizona. The development coincides with recent a recent Economist/YouGov survey, revealing a sizeable enthusiasm gap between Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden (D)....

    There may still be five months until Election Day but polling shows that former Vice President Joe Biden is already performing better in key swing states than Hillary Clinton did in 2016—a troubling sign for President Donald Trump's reelection effort. An analysis by political scientist Alan Abramowitz for the election forecaster Sabato's Crystal Ball found Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, ahead in more than a dozen states critical to Trump's success and Clinton's downfall in 2016: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin Not only is Biden leading Trump in hypothetical head-to-head matchups in each of these areas, but he's also performing better than Clinton's vote margin from the 2016 contest. That means in November, Biden could be a stronger Democratic candidate than Trump has faced before. On average, Biden is running more than six points ahead of Clinton in these...
