It should be near impossible for Biden to lose MI, PA or WI

all three states now have democratic governors and secretaries of state. That means electoral process in these state is controlled by dems. I believe this should mean no voter suppression and high turnout in all three states. This is different from other swing states like FL, OH or AZ. Folks need to vote as early as possible in MI, PA and WI so we can get the result on election night and end this nightmare once and for all.

And wins those three, Biden is in and over?

It would be poetic justice to take away those states particularly.

I hope they are able to work around that for voting.

Also, I understand Milwaukee had a lot of voter suppression happening in 2016, so maybe that will be better this time around, with a Dem governor. Scott Walker in 2016 was especially bad, I'm sure....

Pennsylvania, he won’t need Wisconsin (10).
Mark Kelly will help him win Arizona.

about PA. It is Biden’s home state and he should have a solid lead of at least like 6. Last night his campaign data indicated that it was more like 4.8. Trump is there constantly brainwashing people. Then the naked ballot thing. Then they said a while back that it was gonna take quite some time to count. Just makes me a little uneasy after 2016. We just need to get out there and vote.

Arizona and the Hillary states, he won’t need Pennsylvania. He will have exactly 270.
It might be a blow to his ego though

does not have as many electoral votes as PA. I feel okay with Az since Biden has a small lead there but Kelly has a large one. I’m hoping that Kelly will have coattails. Plus I think the CINDY McCain endorsement might help there. 🤞
