I think it all depends on how the fight against covid turns out. If the economy flounders and covid takes out a lot of people that may give Biden more of a chance. I mean will people really want a guy that led the economy down the crapper and had a poor response to be a pandemic? Things could have been somewhat better here.

How big of chance though will Biden have? Time will tell. Who knows what the covid situation next week will be like?

Idk man most Americans in the flyover states will probably pick the R for the same reason democrats pick D. Abortion and Supreme Court so that really only leave who is more willing to show up vote and Republicans are good at suppression

It isn't really about the states that always go blue or the states that always go red. Those states are going their color regardless of the candidates. It's the swing states where Trump beat Clinton only by about 100,000 people where everything will play out. Who knows though what will happen though?

Trump won by 10,000 in MI. That is 0.2% of votes cast. Biden will handily beat him in MI this time around, especially if he picks Whitmer as his VP.
