Counties That Count

Polling data from the 2016 presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton might just offer a glimpse into how key battleground states will vote in 2020. Newsweek is looking at a dozen key counties from 2016 who previously supported Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012 but flipped to support Trump in 2016. We're looking at voter sentiment, the economy, what's happening on the ground with business owners, politicians and others. Counties in states like Iowa, Wisconsin, Ohio, Minnesota, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Florida could be the deciding factor in whether Trump or Joe Biden ultimately win the White House in 2020.
