But that doesn’t guarantee ?the Democratic candidate victory. Hillary Clinton also had a clear lead over Trump in the polls for almost the entire 2016 campaign. She ended up losing in the electoral college.
?Because the presidential ?voting system assigns each state a number of electoral college votes, which? go to the state’s victor regardless of the? margin of victory (with the exception of Nebraska and Maine), a handful of swing states will ?probably decide the election and be targeted heavily by campaigners.
Each day, the Guardian’s poll tracker takes a rolling 14-day average of the polls in ?eight swing states.
In order to track how the race is developing in the areas that could decide the election, six of the eight states we focused on were those that flipped to Trump? in 2016 after backing Barack Obama in 2012. Arizona and North Carolina were also added due to what they might tell us about a shifting electoral landscape – they could emerge as vital new swing states this year.
We must caution that the polls – particularly some swing state polls – severely undercounted Trump supporters in 2016. We are not certain, despite assurances, that they they have corrected this?. Additionally, they may be over-counting Democratic support (more people may say they will vote for Biden than actually turn out).
