Election countdown: 17 days

North Dakota is a safe red state—rural and conservative, with a population of just 762,000 (about the same as Leeds). It’s margins are way smaller than the percentages make them appear:

In 2008, McCain won by 9 points, but just 27,000 votes! That said, Trump received more than twice as many votes as Hillary Clinton did in 2016, so its safe to assume that he’s going to win North Dakota again this year. Polls currently have him 20 points ahead of Biden.
