If you are an ordinary voter and political follower, it is easy to get caught up in the primaries and “thinking” your candidate can win many of the solid red or blue states … something highly unlikely. A more likely scenario is that a handful of states (about 10) will determine which party, and therefore which direction, our country will move. In looking at the national 270towin map, it is pretty telling which states are going to be battlegrounds. The Democrats start with an advantage having about 217 electorial votes to the 191 for Republicans. With a win requiring 270 electorial votes, primary voters would be wise to develop a candidate picking strategy best suited to win the majority of those battleground states.
