Democrats were floored when Donald Trump peeled off several states that had routinely voted for Democrat presidential candidates in the 2016 election.
It’s why he became President in the first place.
But with the 2020 elections just around the corner, Trump has found three key swing states that could again spell doom for Democrats.
President Trump owes his stunning victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election to his ability to flip several midwestern swing states, including Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Michigan.
Many of these states had been bitterly contested swing states, or had routinely voted for Democrats for over 30 years.
And Trump won them all.
While Democrats struggle to figure out how to beat Trump in 2020, the President has already figured out his path to re-election.
And it runs right through the same states that put him into the White House the first time around.
The key swing states that will make or break Trump in 2020 will be Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.
Each of these states had voted for Democrats for over 30 years.
They thought that each of them was firmly in their pocket.
And now that Trump has pulled them away from them, they’re freaking out.
But with the 2020 elections now appearing to be a repeat of the 2016 election, it’s clear that Trump’s path to re-election runs right through the upper Midwest once again.
The fact of the matter is, if Trump can replicate his victory map by re-carrying these states once again in 2020, he will win re-election.
And there’s nothing that Democrats can do about it either.
Knowing that the electoral math isn’t on their side, Democrats are now in full-blown panic mode with the party realizing that they can’t guarantee these massive swing states to back them in the upcoming election.
In Michigan, the President was able to offset the massive voting bloc in Detroit and other cities in the state in order to pull off an upset victory over Hillary Clinton.
In Wisconsin, Trump was able to capitalize off of the fact that the Clinton campaign took the state for granted and didn’t even bother campaigning in the state in the general election.
And in Pennsylvania, Trump managed to flip one of the biggest swing states in America that Democrats had been winning since the 1980s.
Each of these states provided Trump the necessary electoral votes needed to win the election.
And with the 2020 elections just around the corner, the President is in an excellent position to win these states once again.
If Democrats cannot run the table and win all of these states next year, their chances of winning the White House again collapses to nearly zero.
Trump only has to win one of these states in order to effectively guarantee his re-election prospects.
And he has the next year and a half to do just that.
Do you think that Trump can win the upper Midwest in 2020?
