11. Agreed. But the tricky part is the perennial swing states.

The usual suspects are: Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Like many elections before, those are the states that decide how things will go, since all other states are pretty much locked into their Redness and Blueness. 2000 and 2016 saw the Democratic tickets receive more popular votes, but came up short in the outmoded EC, due to swing states tipping Red.

Whichever candidate carries most of those swing states, therein lies victory.
