  • Dems need to win Florida & Pennsylvania, and keep the other 2016 Blue States. Obama won those states, twice, and even North Carolina in 2008. A candidate can’t be President without FL given the spread of Blue/Red in the other states, and need to get 1-2 from Ohio, Michigan, Pennsylvania. It’s that simple, and hard.
