Trump and Biden Battle in Surprise Southern Swing State One Week from Election

A Democrat hasn’t won here in nearly three decades, but that hasn’t stopped Joe Biden from spending a lot of time and money to change that.

Every 4 years, states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida get a whole lot of extra attention.

That’s because these are the almost certain “swing states” whose political makeup allows for extremely competitive races – particularly at the presidential level.  And, not only could these states seemingly go either way, but they tend to have quite a few electoral college votes in play as well, making them prime real estate for any politician’s election-night map.

But this election is like no other in our modern history, with two extremely polarizing candidates, and a number of locales where demographics are changing swiftly.  This means that, in essence, there are now states being considered “swing states” that were once solidly in the pocket of one particular political party.

Georgia has been a reliably Republican, conservative bastion and a Democrat has not won in the Peach State since Bill Clinton, a fellow Southerner, in 1992.

But Democratic candidate Joe Biden, 77, and Republican incumbent Donald Trump, 74, are running neck-and-neck in the polls in Georgia.

And Democrats believe they may have a shot this time at winning not only the state’s 16 Electoral College votes for president but also its two seats in the US Senate.

Democratic wins in the two Senate races in Georgia could help give the party a majority in the chamber.

Nearly 40 percent of Georgia’s eligible voters have cast their ballots early.

Biden’s last minute trip to Georgia on Tuesday seems to indicate that the Democratic nominee believes that the state is in play, likely thanks to to the burgeoning population of liberal Atlanta, which now accounts for more than half of the entire state’s eligible voters.
