Statewide Projections

To estimate the likely distribution of electoral college votes this November, a first stage is gathering cumulative data on polling from which to draw inferences.

Alabama

College Votes at Stake: 9

Alabama looks set to be another comfortable win for President Trump. Two different polls show the President with a comfortable 20 point lead over Biden. [1]

Source Date Sample Biden Trump
Mason-Dixon 2/11/20 625 38 58

Alaska

College Votes at Stake: 3

Alaska was a Republican red state in the last election and all indications suggest it will be so again in 2020. A Zogby Analytics poll from July-August 2019 showed President Trump comfortably beating all candidates and beating Biden by 5. A more recent poll shows President Trump continues to lead Biden. And another shows a complete decimation. [2]

Arizona

College Votes at Stake: 11

Arizona looks set to be a tough race this time. A couple of polls show Trump closely behind Biden, but within the margin of error, in the state. A June 2020 poll shows President Trump pulling ahead, supporting Conservapedia's analysis of President Trump's powerful ground game within the State.

In addition, the ground support for President Trump looks very good in Arizona: "“We have over two million voter contacts,” said Keith Schipper, the campaign’s regional communications director responsible for Nevada and Arizona. “Contrast that with Joe Biden, who just hired his first two staffers last week. They are parachuting in to try to build these relationships. Arizona voted for the president in 2016 and it’s going to go for him again in November.” [3]

Arkansas

College Votes at Stake: 6

Arkansas will be a very comfortable victory for President Trump. Polls from February show President Trump sailing to victory with a lead of 22 points.

Source Date Sample Biden Trump
Progress Campaign Poll 02/27/20 643 36 58

California

College Votes at Stake: 55

California being one of the most liberal states in the union is a safe bet for the Democrats. Emerson Polling shows Biden leads Trump by 30 points, but only 54% of Californians expect Biden to be the next president. Enthusiasm for Trump is higher at 55% while sleepy Joe Biden has a low enthusiasm rate of 48% in California.

Colorado

College Votes at Stake: 9

Colorado has consistently polled in favor of Biden, but some of those polls were before the disclosures of Tara Reade that Biden sexually assaulted her had had their impact on voters. It remains to be seen if Biden's lead will decrease as a consequence of it in coming months.

President Trump looks set to win again in Wyoming as he did last time. It was a Republican red state in 2016 and there are indications it will be again. The incumbent, President Trump, is traditionally favored.

National projections

Stony Brook University's Professor Helmut Norpoth, who correctly predicted a Donald Trump victory in 2016 against mainstream media naysaying, estimates there is a 91% likelihood that President Trump will win again in November 2020: ""OK, the key to the November election is the primaries. And, the only primaries [are] already giving us a lot of information," he explained.

And, based on that, Donald Trump won them very easily in his party," Norpoth continued. "Joe Biden -- the likely nominee for the Democrats -- had a great deal of trouble holding it together. But, on balance, it's that stronger performance of primaries that gives Donald Trump the edge in November."[5]

2020 Election Projections

State Biden 2020 Electoral
College Votes
Trump 2020 Electoral
College Votes
Comment: Explanation/Reasoning
Alabama 0 9 Alabama is one of America's solidly Republican states.
Alaska 0 3 Alaska is a conservative state, although the media is trying to paint it as a "lean-likely R" state.[6]
Arizona 0 11 Too close to call, as more data is needed for clear inference, especially with fake "polling" rampant. While generally considered a red state, Arizona has long elected RINO John McCain into office, given a coalition of neocons that especially play an important political role in Maricopa County. Currently somewhat of a tossup, Trump's chances of winning are similar to Martha McSally's in the latter's concurrent Senate special election. The state is currently being carpetbagged by common sense-lacking California liberals who move there and continue voting for Democrats that favor destructive policies. Awarded to President Trump on strength of ground support.[7] However, Arizona has become more lighter red, to the point of shifting toward Democrats, despite the governors, the state legislature, state senators, state judges, and commissioners being Republican.
Arkansas 0 6 Trump will have a very comfortable victory there.
California 55 0 Biden, with a 25+ point lead, would secure his lead, giving Trump very little hope of winning the 55-electoral-vote state.
Colorado 9 0 Polls imply Biden has a double-digit lead in the state. At one point a solidly Republican state, Colorado has been trending purple, then blue, ever since the 2008 presidential election, although Trump lost by only just under 5% in the state in 2016.
Connecticut 7 0 A solid blue state; Biden has a commanding lead in the polls.
Delaware 3 0 Candidate Biden has a commanding lead in the polls, although some have noted that the state isn't as solidly blue as many expect.
Florida 0 29 President Trump won Florida in 2016 and still has strong support; the state is known for tending to favor incumbents, despite Republicans having a small lead, since Florida is tilting Republican.
Georgia 0 16 President Trump comfortably won in 2016, although Georgia is slightly trending blue. It is still very light red, or magenta, in terms of "political colours".
Hawaii 4 0 Hawaii is the 2nd most Democratic state; Biden will clearly win the state.
Idaho 0 4 Idaho is clearly Republican; since it is mostly rural.
Illinois 20 0 This state has a small GOP base, especially in the rural parts, but the Democrats come mostly from Chicago.
Indiana 0 11 Indiana is clearly Republican, mostly due to Mike Pence.
Iowa 0 6 Iowa is just leaning Republican; Biden may win if the GOP mismanages the state; so Democrats must do dirty tricks, and Republicans must make the state deeper red and secure their lead.
Kansas 0 6 Kansas is a deep red state which Trump will easily win in 2020.
Kentucky 0 8 Many fake polls show Mitch Mc Connell losing in the polls[8], but, however, Kentucky is a solidly red state in which both Trump and McConnell will win easily.
Louisiana 0 8 President Trump comfortably won in 2016 and the state has been red for 20 years.
Maine 4 0 Maine is a light-to-moderate blue state; Biden has a chance of win; although it is not over for Trump.
Maryland 10 0 Maryland is a very liberal state which Biden will very easily win.
Massachusetts 11 0 Massachusetts is so liberal that conservative commentators call the state "Liberal Massachusetts".
Michigan 16 0 Michigan is a competitive state which Trump won in 2016 and is defending in 2020; Biden got a clearer lead, and this state is slightly to clear blue, although some polls are faked by 6 points, so it may just be tilting-to-leaning Democrat. However, overall, it is "Lean Democrat".
Minnesota 0 10 Once a navy blue state, Minnesota has gotten lighter blue, and now Trump and Biden are tied in fake polls. Trump may possibly win the increasingly conservative state, despite the Democrats defending the state in 2020.
Mississippi 0 6 Trump doesn't have to worry in Mississippi, since is it safely Republican.
Missouri 0 10 Missouri was purple in 2008. It got more clearly red, and Republicans don't have to worry about this state.
Montana 0 3 Trump is ahead hugely in Montana, despite having a small Democrat base.
Nebraska 0 5 Nebraska is a deep red state that Trump is way ahead.
Nevada 0 6 Nevada is a very competitive state; Trump may win, if he does serious work.
New Hampshire 4 0 Former Vice President Biden is ahead in key polls. However, this state is light blue.
New Jersey 14 0 New Jersey is very liberal; Biden will easily win.
New Mexico 5 0 In 2000, New Mexico was solidly Republican. It got increasingly liberal, although the Republicans have a small-to-medium-sized base. New Mexico is lean to likely Democrat.
New York 29 0 Trump is losing badly in this liberal blue empire state, despite NY being his hometown.
North Carolina 0 15 North Carolina is a swing state, although some polls try to make the state look like leaning Democrat. However, it is tilting Republican, although any party can win.
North Dakota 0 3 North Dakota is a very deep red state, which Trump will easily win in 2020.
Ohio 0 18 Ohio is leaning Republican; Trump can expect to slightly-to-moderately win the state.
Oklahoma 0 7 A deep red state; Trump will win big.
Oregon 7 0 Oregon is expected to be won big, but not so big, for Joe Biden.
Pennsylvania 0 20 The battleground state is very competitive; Trump or Biden may win the state very closely; this state may decide the election.
Rhode Island 4 0 Biden will easily win this deep blue state.
South Carolina 0 9 South Carolina is leaning Republican; Trump will win by about 10 points.
South Dakota 0 3 A very deep red state; Trump will easily win the state.
Tennessee 0 11 Trump will win big in this safely red state.
Texas 0 38 Despite some Democrat gains, Texas is leaning-to-likely Republicans. Trump will win the state in 2020, even though the media is trying to make Texas look like a swing state.
Utah 0 6 This solidly red state will be won extremely easily by Donald Trump.
Vermont 3 0 Vermont, the third most liberal state, will be won easily by Joe Biden.
Virginia 0 13 Virginia is leaning-to-likely Biden; Trump made the state slightly more competitive.
Washington 12 0 A deep establishment blue state; Biden will easily win the state.
West Virginia 0 5 Trump will very easily, although not extremely easily, win the state.
Wisconsin 10 0 Polls show Biden is slightly ahead in this state.
Wyoming 0 3 Wyoming is the most Republican state; Trump will exceptionally easily win the state.
