We expect both candidates to concentrate on battleground states such as Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Florida and Arizona as the campaign progresses.
The contrast between the two candidates’ campaign styles could not be more stark though. President Trump hosting larger meetings with a notable lack of face masks and social distancing. Mr Biden choosing smaller meetings complete with masks and distancing. Both play to their respective supporter bases.
Although national polls collated on www.realpolitics.com and www.fivethirtyeight.com suggest that Mr Biden still holds a comfortable 7.50% lead over Mr Trump, that does not tell the entire story. The polls within the swing states are much closer than the national ones are suggesting. And after the 2016 elections, where the polls were almost entirely wrong, the feeling is that this election will still be much closer than expected, with the President still well in the game if he carries the swing states.
