Fox News campaign expert Arnon Mishkin has turned down the Trump campaign’s call to reverse his call to Joe Biden in Arizona.
With Arizona, Mr. Biden has 264 votes – which means he is only six votes away from winning the presidency. If Nevada is called for the Democrat, the race is over.
The Trump campaign insists it is on track to win in Arizona with around 600,000 personal election day elections yet to be counted that are expected to favor the president at a rate of more than 60 percent.
Speaking to Fox News Wednesday night, Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh said as the number narrowed that “there is a lot of pressure on you, to be honest, Fox News, to withdraw your call”.
“It was an early call and you know we were upset that you and then AP made that call,” he said. “You don’t want to be able, this will lead to Joe Biden falsely declaring himself president-elect.”
Mr Mishkin was asked about the projections of the Trump campaign by host Martha McCallum. “If that were the case, would this state move?” She said.
“If a frog had wings,” replied Mr. Mishkin.
“I mean, we pretty much believe that the vote will take place, it will confirm our call, then others will call Arizona for the former vice president. We’re confident in our call and we’ll see when the data comes in … the data looks basically like the data we noticed during the Arizona census, and so we’re not retreating. ”
Mr Mishkin was asked why he couldn’t call North Carolina for Mr Trump, where he is at the top with around 77,000 votes and 95 percent votes.
“Because we’re waiting for a different type of vote in North Carolina than in Nevada,” he said.
If Mr Biden does win Arizona, he will only be the second Democrat to turn it blue since 1952. Mr Trump beat Hillary Clinton in Arizona in 2016 by a moderately comfortable 4 percent lead.
It’s a big win for Mr. Biden because he only needs to win two of the three Rust Belt states – Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania – and not all.
The president himself stated during an early victory speech threatening Supreme Court action that Republicans still “have a lot of life in (Arizona),” but they “don’t even need it, we don’t need it.”
“If you look at Arizona and see it, we have a lot of life in it,” he told the media during a speech at the White House.
“Somebody said it was a win for and maybe it is possible. But there are many voters. We don’t even need it, we don’t need that. It’s just a state that we would have got and that would have been nice. ”
While Republican Senate spokeswoman Natalie Johnson previously accused Fox News’ statement of being “pure guesswork and insanely irresponsible,” the network’s campaign expert, Mr Mishkin, defended the appeal.
“I’m sorry, the president won’t get enough votes to break Biden’s leadership,” he said.
“I’m sorry, we’re not wrong on this particular case.”
WHAT THAT MEANS FOR THE RESULTS OF THE ELECTION
There may be 50 states in America, but when the votes are counted, only a handful of them – including Arizona – will decide who will win the presidential election.
In this election, 15 states fall into the Swing State or Battleground State category – which means they could potentially be won by Donald Trump or Joe Biden.
Incidentally, we already know who will win it: Mr Trump has no chance in Democratic Party strongholds such as New York and California, while he is probably unbeatable in heavily Republican areas such as Alabama or Oklahoma.
With 11 votes, Arizona has only voted for a Democratic candidate once since 1952 – Bill Clinton in 1996.
While that doesn’t sound like the voting pattern of a swing state, Arizona was very much involved in that election, with Mr Trump only topping Mr Biden once on the state’s electoral average.
Perhaps of significance is the fact that Arizona was the home state of the late Republican Senator John McCain, an American war hero who died in 2018.
Mr Trump has had an argument with Mr McCain, who was one of the few vocal critics of the President in his own party, and that could hurt him with the Arizona people.
The state has also been through https://twitter.com/gelliottmorris/status/1264250609898790912?s=20 on the left since 2016, with Democrats winning some nationwide marquee elections.
The ultimate goal is to reach a threshold of 270 votes. If a candidate wins the referendum in a given state, they get all of their vote and are so much closer to victory.
