Abstract

As it was key to Trump’s presidential election victory in 2016, winning Pennsylvania in 2020 helped secure the White House for Joe Biden in 2020. Ben Kantack writes that there are reasons for optimism for both Republicans and Democrats facing elections in the Keystone State in 2022 and 2024. On one hand, Biden may have re-established the Democrats’ “Blue Wall” in 2020. On the other, Biden’s slim electoral margin in Pennsylvania may not survive another candidate without his small-town connection to the state, or an increasingly left-leaning Democratic Party.
