Just because it’s a cliché doesn’t mean it’s not true: It all comes down to turnout.
With more than 90 million votes already cast, the election may still hinge on whether President Donald Trump or Democratic nominee Joe Biden does the best job in driving remaining voters to the polls. 월요일에, they and their running mates will be making their last stands in the states that could make the difference.
Trump is banking on a series of late comebacks in the battlegrounds, and plans on visiting Michigan (두번), 노스 캐롤라이나, 펜실베니아 및 위스콘신. As usual, he’s making no concessions to social distancing by holding big rallies.
바이든, in keeping with his more Covid-19 compliant schedule, is stopping only in Pennsylvania and Ohio — the latter amounting to a late raid into territory that Republicans were sure they had locked up months ago.
Their veep picks will be on the trail too. 민주당 센. Kamala Harris will spend all day in Pennsylvania, which could end up being the decisive state. The man whose job she is after, 마이크 펜스 부통령, will also be in the commonwealth.
