Outside of Democratic and Republican strongholds, there are some battleground states (also known as swing states), in which the U.S. presidential election will be decided. Whoever takes the most electoral votes from swing states has the best chances of winning the presidency. Texas and Florida play a key role because they have a particularly large number of votes in the Electoral College.
According polling averages compiled by RealClearPolitics, Joe Biden is currently well behind in the Lone Star State but extended his lead in Florida, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Trump’s challenger also leads in a series of smaller, battleground states like Arizona, Wisconsin and Minnesota. Biden has lost some ground in critical state of Ohio.
