CNNs Brownstein: 2024 election could come down to four communities

IN Georgia, Arizona, Wisconsin and Nevada.

Cited in Politico:
The two presidential nominees could start out in 2024 with as many as 46 states and D.C. sorted between the two parties. Brownstein argues that given recent trends, Democrats could start with a safe 260 electoral votes and Republicans with a safe 235 electoral votes. Under this scenario, longtime battleground states have become reliably red or blue. With Michigan and Pennsylvania seemingly back in Democratic hands, Florida and Ohio dominated by the GOP, sometimes-blue North Carolina out of reach for Democrats, and perennial GOP target New Hampshire out of reach for Republicans, the list of true toss-ups could be down to just four states worth 43 electoral votes: Nevada, Arizona, Georgia and Wisconsin.

The electoral college map is so closely divided that you can narrow down the decisive swing votes to a few pockets spread across those four states: a miniscule number of people living in the tiny patches of contested political ground white-collar suburbs of Atlanta and Phoenix, working-class Latino neighborhoods in and around Las Vegas and the mid-sized communities of the so-called BOW counties in Wisconsin.

1. LOL, the newest prediction from the people who brought you the 2022 RED WAVE!

2 years is an eternity in political terms. Scoff at all the conventional and wishful thinking from the punditocrats.
Brownstein's dying to talk to Midwestern dolts in diners. Gosh, what do you white people hanging out in a diner during working hours want to complain about?

2. Look at the electoral map. He's absolutely right.

Have you noticed where margins were razor thin this month?
Get a clue.
