All eyes on the swing states – let FAU’s political science expert help with all your election coverageNovember 2, 20201 min read
Tomorrow is the day. After a presidential campaign like no other in a year like no other, America will either elect a new president or give U.S. President Donald Trump four more years in the White House. What will happen in possible swing states like Florida, North Carolina, Ohio or Pennsylvania? Will Arizona or Georgia impact the end result?
Like all U.S. presidential elections, the balance of the Electoral College rests on just a few states.
There are a few key points to cover if you are a journalist:
• What were the top issues for Florida voters?
• Are mail-in ballots going to be an issue?
• It was all eyes on the Sunshine State in 2000 when it took weeks to know the results – what’s changed since then?
• And did any candidate do or say anything in particular to sway or disappoint the Florida electorate?
• What will be the deciding factor in other swing states?
• Did the debates persuade undecided voters?
It is going to be a busy day, and potentially a long week, as America counts its votes. If you are covering the election, then let our experts help.
