“The iv are Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin together with Florida. Many analysts betoken to Wisconsin every bit the unmarried field upon which the election could turn.”

Elsewhere inwards the column, in that location is beak nearly African American voters. Balz writes that in that location are 4 “demographic groups” that volition survive focused on, including “African Americans, together with especially younger African Americans, whose turnout levels volition survive critical to Democrats’ fortunes.” And inwards talking nearly Milwaukee, there’s this:
