About This State

Why Is This State Special?

Wisconsin broke hearts in 2016 and could be the closest battleground state of all in 2020. While Trump won Wisconsin by less than one point in 2016, Wisconsin Democrats turned it around in 2018 and won the governorship by less than one point. Wisconsin may be a more tough state to win than Pennsylvania or Michigan because it has more rural areas, but the Democratic victories in 2018, combined with a new and improved organizing strategy, could help the party pull out a win in 2020.
