Outside of the Democrats’ and Republicans’ strongholds, there are the battleground states (also known as swing states), which is where the U.S. presidential election will be decided. Whoever can take the most electoral votes from swing states has the best chances of also winning the presidency. Texas and Florida play a major role because they have a particularly large number of votes in the Electoral College.
According to RealClearPolitics, Joe Biden is currently well behind in the Lone Star State and only just ahead in the Sunshine State. Meanwhile, Trump’s challenger leads in a whole series of other, albeit smaller, battleground states like Arizona, Wisconsin and Minnesota.
This chart shows average poll margins in favor of Donald Trump/Joe Biden in major swing states in the 2020 presidential election.
