Ohio is the key state for Trump in November elections.

Ohio State was a blowout for Trump in 2016. It was one of the biggest swing states which catapulted him to become the president.

Ohio State was a blowout for Trump in 2016. It was one of the biggest swing states which catapulted him to become the president. Trump is currently trailing in the national polls against Democratic challenger Joe Biden. Ohio will hold an election for president of the United States on November 3, 2020. The state has a history on its side in establishing itself a must-win state to achieve victory in the presidential campaign. Some political analysts argue that the state is likely to be less competitive in the 2020 elections. But history tells us otherwise. It is an actual swing state, voting seven times for the Republican nominee, and five times for the Democratic nominee, in the past dozen presidential elections. Donald Trump won Ohio by a decisive margin in 2016 with more than eight percentage points, and since the Republican base is more white than the minority, it served Trump well in 2016. The state has a large share of voters who are non-Hispanic white with less than a bachelor’s degree, a bloc that supported the GOP overwhelmingly in 2016.
