2020 Elections May Mirror 2012 Presidential Map

TUESDAY, OCT 20, 2020

The most litigated presidential election since 1876? The most divisive contest since 1968? The closest since 2000? If polls are correct, the 2020 election may just wind up looking a lot like the 2012 map – the last time Democratic nominee Joe Biden ran on a presidential ticket.

Even though presidential polling has proven to be catastrophically inaccurate in recent history, only two states – North Carolina and Arizona – are considered likely to flip from the Republican side of the slate in 2012 to the former vice president in 2020, but that would be enough for a near-landslide, providing Biden with 358 electoral votes.
