Three Paths to Victory Remain for President Trump

Trump Path To Victory

The 2020 Election is much closer than anyone anticipated on either side of the aisle and anyone who tells you either candidate has it in the bag is not telling you the truth.

Both Trump and Biden have seen a large turnout with more than 72 million votes cast for the Democrat presidential nominee and over 68 million votes cast for President Trump.

The Electoral College count currently stands at 243 for Joe Biden and 214 for Donald Trump with neither candidate yet reaching the required threshold of 270 to win the White House.

It appears that the president will likely have victory in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Georgia which would bring his total to 265, just five Electoral College votes from securing his re-election.

Trump needs one more state to win the election with his best chance being in Arizona (11) or Nevada (6). Either one would put him over 270.

The last update from Nevada showed a razor-close margin of 8,000 votes separating the candidates with at least 14 percent of the vote yet to be counted.

In Arizona, the last update shows Trump and Biden separated by less than 70,000 votes with an estimated 600,000 ballots yet to be counted. Trump adviser Steve Cortes claims that these votes are coming in from the Trump-friendly county of Maricopa. The trend, he says, of 62 percent Trump votes is an encouraging sign that he will surpass the 58 percent they project that he needs to surpass Biden and win four more years.

There is a third and more complex path to victory for the president as Republicans feel the pinch of a narrowing lead in the important state of Georgia. If the GOP were to lose the state but win Arizona and Nevada, the Electoral College would be tied 269 to 269.

In that circumstance, which has only happened a few times in American history, the U.S. House of Representatives would choose the next President and the Senate, the Vice President. Contrary to the makeup of the House, each state delegation would be allotted one vote and with 27 states being predominantly Republican it is a winning scenario for Trump.
