State Pick-ups

Decided to go ahead with the plan to increase update frequency, as there has been significantly more state polling this month than there was in April. As the coronavirus pandemic continues, it appears to making a bit more of an impact than it did previously, with Donald Trump's disapproval on handling the pandemic approaching 60% and numerous polls showing Joe Biden's national and state leads expanding. While I think there could be some reversion toward the earlier numbers later in the year, the change seems significant enough that I am at least partially taking it into account. This results in the most important change on the map, with Pennsylvania now in the Lean Democratic category, thus bringing Joe Biden to just shy of 270 electoral votes with confidence better than Tossup. Additionally, I was very tempted to move Texas into the Tossup category due to several recent polls there showing a close race, but given that state's consistent Republican voting record over the last few decades, I ultimately decided against doing so at this time. I will be keeping a close eye on Texas polling however, and if I don't see any reversion toward its historical mean in the next two or three months I may eventually make that change. Finally, there is one development in Donald Trump's favor on this map, as I have reluctantly concluded that Iowa should for now be classified as a Lean Republican state, based upon recent polling.
