The Democratic Battle for Battleground States

Primary elections give us a predictive insight into what may happen in the General Election. Democrats who are focused on a win in November are paying close attention to the wins in the swing states and the margins by which we are able to do it. Here is a map that shows the States that vote solidly Republican and Democrat and the ones we need to take in November to hold on to to have a Democrat in the Oval Office and a Supreme Court that upholds Civil Rights:

Here are each candidate's Swing State wins in the Primary and the number of Electoral Votes those States have in the General Election.

How have Democrats voted so far? For purposes of this accounting, I'm calling Iowa, with 6 electoral votes, a split:


Iowa: 6

Nevada: 6

Virginia: 13

Total: 25


Iowa: 6

New Hampshire: 4

Colorado: 6


How are the candidates polling in the on-coming Swing State Primaries that really matter for Democrats?:

Pennsylvania: 20 Clinton@ 48% Sanders@ 27%

Ohio: 18 Clinton @ 55% Sanders @ 40 %

North Carolina:15 Clinton @ 51% Sanders @ 34%

Florida: 29 Clinton @57 Sanders @ 32%

Ohio: 18 Clinton@55% Sanders @ 40%

Wisconsin: 10 Sanders @ 44% Clinton @ 43%
