CNN Moves PA Back From Battleground To Leans Dem For Presidential Race

The presidential race has, once again, shifted back in the Democrats favor in Pennsylvania, according to CNN’s 2020 Electoral College map

In an article published on October 7, Pennsylvania moves from the Battleground into the Leans Democratic category. 

The analysis cites a bevy of recent polling for the rating change. 

“Since our last Electoral College outlook, there have been no fewer than eight polls that meet CNN’s reporting standards out of Pennsylvania — a critical battleground state for either candidate’s path to 270 electoral votes,” writes CNN’s David Chalian and Terence Burlij. “Biden never held less than a 5-percentage point lead in any of them and his support level was never below 49%. We are moving Pennsylvania back to Leans Democratic.”

They also added that the Biden campaign has outspent the Trump campaign $48 million-to-$21 million in the Keystone State.

In CNN’s debut 2020 electoral map published in June, Pennsylvania was listed in the “Battleground” category. CNN later moved Pennsylvania from Battleground to Leans Democratic in early-August, but then moved it back to the Battleground category until the latest ratings change. 

This is the first map that shows Biden crossing the 270 electoral threshold to capture the White House. 

Biden has 290 electoral votes at least leaning towards him, while Trump has 163, and 85 electoral votes remain in the Battleground category. 

CNN joins the Cook Political Report, Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball, and Politico, in rating the race as Leans Democratic in the state. 

The Real Clear Politics average shows Biden besting Trump by 7.1 points in Pennsylvania.

  1. Yeah, CNN has real credibility.

    Using virus as weapon is despicable but smart.

    Keeps law and order and illegal immigration off the news.

    1. Keep corruption alive and down play the virus as a hoax. All bow to emperor Trump!

  2. Serial child abuser GOP State Rep. Aaron Bernstine –

    In one video obtained by the USA TODAY Network, Aaron Bernstine, R-10, New Beaver, Lawrence County, is behind the camera, but his hand is shown holding a cigar and offering it to his son.

    When the young boy takes a puff, Bernstine tells him to “hit it harder” and “breathe in,” followed by a woman’s voice saying, “No.”

    A second video has Bernstine again off camera asking his son, “What are we going to chase in Nashville?” The boy replies in a whisper, “Cadillac p—-,” using a vulgar term for vagina.

  3. Trump is a LOSER. …and an asshole LIAR. Cheats at everything he does. Says he will evade next debate because moderator will control microphone and not let him rudely interrupt and bully. Such a spoiled child.
