Elections, Unit 3

Swing States

Ultimately most US Presidential elections boil down to the behaviour of voters in Swing States- we all know how Texas and New York will vote in November, the interesting part of US election night is always what happens in the ‘purple’ states with no defined, predictable Republican or Democrat tendencies.

This excellent graphic from the NY Times shows the distribution of swing, red and blue states and what  this means for the election race. And a brief analysis of how commentators believe the all important swing states will vote.
