Swing state score­card: Rank­ing Biden’s tough­est 2024 bat­tle­grounds

Swing state scorecard: Ranking Biden’s toughest 2024 battlegrounds

The 2024 gen­er­al elec­tion race between Pres­i­dent Joe Biden and for­mer Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump will be decid­ed between six or sev­en bat­tle­ground states.
Both cam­paigns are fight­ing to turn out vot­ers in Ari­zona, Geor­gia, Penn­syl­va­nia, Michi­gan, Neva­da, North Car­oli­na, and Wis­con­sin.
Biden won all of those bat­tle­ground states except for North Car­oli­na dur­ing the 2020 elec­tion against Trump. But after four years of Biden’s lead­er­ship, an exhaust­ed elec­torate is weary of anoth­er Biden-Trump rematch.
As the incum­bent leader, Biden faces a tough reelec­tion elec­tion against Trump, who remains the dom­i­nant leader of the GOP.
Ahead of the Nov. 5 elec­tion, the Wash­ing­ton Exam­in­er ranked the bat­tle­ground states accord­ing to which would be the hard­est for Biden to win.
