There IS NO way Joe Biden should be campaigning to win this Red State…
But polling there shows a tight race 4 months out from election day…
I doubt he can win there…
But pouring money there will force Trump and Republicans to also do so….
And IF Biden would actually pull out a win there?
Donald Trump would be getting blown out in the final election numbers of popular voter and electoral voters numbers
Republicans in Georgia say every four years they hear from Democrats and the media that the state is at a tipping point. As with Texas, another traditionally red state in the South that has become more competitive in recent years, Democrats have not been able to close the deal.
But a source close to presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s campaign told The Hill that the campaign intends to spend in Georgia, even though he has other paths to win 270 electoral votes and the White House.
Democrats believe a younger and more diverse Georgia electorate could turn out in November, driven by activist anger over the police killing of George Floyd and Trump’s apparent weakness in the suburbs.
Voter interest should be off the charts in Georgia, which has two competitive Senate races and may be the deciding factor in whether the GOP maintains its majority in the upper chamber. The state will also host two competitive House races in the Atlanta suburbs, where women and independents have moved away from Republicans since 2016.
“Georgia is very much in play,” said DuBose Porter, the former chairman of the Georgia Democratic Party.
Republicans acknowledge that the state is becoming more purple and say it is of paramount importance that each GOP candidate takes their race seriously.
But Republicans believe Democrats are getting ahead of themselves. They remain confident that Trump will triumph in Georgia in 2020, even if it’s by a slimmer margin than the party’s past victories.
Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in Georgia in 2016 by about 5 points, or just over 200,000 votes….
