Pennsylvania played a starring role in winning back the White House in 2020. Hillary Clinton lost the state by a razor-thin margin in 2016, the first time the Democratic candidate for President did not win Pennsylvania in decades, and the race to invest and win the state in 2020 paid off. After four long days of counting mail-in ballots, on Saturday November 7, Biden pulled ahead with an insurmountable margin, and media’s decision desks called Pennsylvania for Biden, delivering the state’s 20 Electoral College votes, pushing him over 270, making him President-Elect and Pennsylvania, the tipping point state as predicted. The high turnout in the urban centers, particularly through mail-in ballots, and the blue shift of suburban counties, particularly those encircling Philadelphia, played critical roles in pushing Biden over the top, overwhelming Trump’s improved margins and higher turnout of white voters in rural counties. While Pennsylvania may have been the tipping point state, the victories in Arizona and Georgia became checkmate states, where no matter what moves Trump made in the courts, the state legislatures, or Congress to reverse the outcome of the election, he would have to succeed in all three states, not just the tipping point state—an unlikely scenario.
