In a stunning upset, Donald Trump narrowly carried Pennsylvania over Hillary Clinton by less than just 44,000 votes in 2016. Trump is the first Republican to win the Keystone State since George H.W. Bush in 1988. Four years later, the political landscape has changed drastically in Pennsylvania; Democrats flipped several PA Congressional seats in 2018, and Trump’s statewide approval rating regularly clocks in at more than 10 points underwater. 2016 notwithstanding, Pennsylvania is still very much a blue state and squarely in the middle of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’s path to 270 electoral votes.
Joe Biden is the Democratic nominee for President of the United States running against Republican incumbent Donald Trump.
