Ohio and Florida are no longer swing states. Does it matter?

They both are solid red from inside out. Sherrod Brown is the outlier, as Ohio's sole Dem.

1. Yes it is disapppinting but ohio turned districiting over to a more neutral process

So that's good

5. Redistricting does not take place until 2022

and after the 2020 census.
Ohio is a hot mess.

3. I wouldn't spend much in either state in 2020

The 2020 presidential election will come down to PA, MI and WI. Democrats have to win all three and I would devote 90% of the resources to win those states.

Way too expensive in FL and I believe my home state of Ohio is a lost cause

12. I disagree. OH is very important to Republican wins.

Repubs rarely win a Presidential election without Ohio. It's a key state for them. Florida is a close second, for them.

So to keep OH from voting Republican goes a long way to keeping them from winning the Presidency.

14. You may be right. From my perspective, last night

foreshadowed that Ohio is now red and solely in the R camp and now highly unlikely it will swing to D in 2020.
Trump won in Ohio last night. No doubt

10. Right

If we get the Clinton states plus those 3 which we did well in last night it equals 278 without FLA or OH.

4. I don't think swing state means balanced in party representation.

9. True. Compared to dark red states, OH & FL are swing states.

"Swing state" to me means they CAN and DO occasionally go for either party.

7. Florida tends to be red in midterms and purple in presidential elections. Can't give up on it yet.

8. 1,5 million Floridians were given their voting rights back last night

Many of them POC. That and the elderly fake Dems dying off are changing some of FL demos. The rest of us are alraedy very blue. See how close the two big races were? Yeah.

Right off SC and UT, write off OH, but FL will be VA in a few years.

11. IMO, in presidential elections, Ohio and Florida aren't needed for a Democrat

Colorado, Nevada, and Virginia are practically blue states now, ESPECIALLY Virginia.....

All attention needs to go to MI, PA, & WI...

13. 1.5 million ex-felons

just got their voting rights back in Florida. In 2020 it will be blue.

The GOP winning by less than 1% under questionable circumstances doesn't make it solid red.
