Georgia Presidential Race Updates

Friday, Oct. 16: With less than three weeks until Election Day, the betting market gives Donald Trump a 55.7% implied probability of winning Georgia compared to Joe Biden’s 44.3% implied probability.

FiveThirtyEight’s forecast, which simulates the election 40,000 times, projects this race to be a dead heat with Trump and Biden each winning 50 out of every 100 times. The site’s average of polls reflects a close race, with Biden barely leading Trump, 47.8% to 46.6%.

With the betting odds, polling data and FiveThirtyEight’s model projecting this to be close, the results could be pivotal in determining who wins the electoral college. With 16 of the 538 total electoral votes, Georgia is tied with Michigan for the sixth-most electoral votes in the country.

Trump won Georgia by 5.1% in 2016, becoming the sixth Republican nominee to win the state since 1996, though it was a slimmer margin of victory than Mitt Romney’s 7.82% edge over Barack Obama in 2012.

That said, Georgia is once again considered to be a battleground state, with the Democratic Party focused on regaining the ground it had previously lost.
