Larry Sabato’s Crystal Ball has made its first Electoral College projections for 2020, and things are starting in a pretty competitive manner. Republicans have states with 248 Electoral College votes at least leaning in their direction while Democrats have 244 Electoral College votes leaning in their direction.

Forty-six Electoral College votes are currently rated as toss-ups. They come from four states: Pennsylvania (20), Arizona (11), Wisconsin (10), and New Hampshire (4). Additionally, Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District has a single vote in the toss-up category.

It takes 270 Electoral College votes to win the presidency.

Obviously, a lot can change between now and November 2020. Key factors will include both the state of the economy and the Democratic nominee.

In addition to the toss-ups, there are many states that lean in one direction today but are far from a sure thing. Texas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, and Iowa are potentially in play but rated as Leans Republican.

On the other side of the aisle, six states are rated as Leans Democrat but could change. That list includes Nevada, Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota, Virginia, and Maine.
