In 2016, Donald Trump won Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, three states Republican's hadn't won in years. While many believe Democratic nominee Joe Biden's likeliest win would come from taking back the midwest, Chris Cillizza explains why that conventional wisdom may not be Biden's best bet.

DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NATIONAL
NUMBERS IN KEY BATTLEGROUNDS.
>> YOU SHOWED THE FOX POLL THAT
HAD BIDEN UP BY 8.
TAKE THAT FOX POLL AND EVERY
OTHER POLL NATIONALLY AND
AVERAGE THEM TOGETHER, THIS IS
WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE.
BIDEN LEADS IN THE AVERAGE OF
POLLS, FIVE AND A HALF POINT
MARGIN FOR HIM NATIONALLY.
AS WE WERE REMINDED IN 2016, IT
ISN’T A NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE
ELECTION, IT IS BATTLEGROUND
STATE, WHO CAN GET TO 270.
LOOK AT THE SIX PREMIER
BATTLEGROUND STATES, WHAT
POLLING LOOKS LIKE THERE.
THESE ARE THE POLLING AVERAGES
FROM SIX STATES.
YOU REMEMBER IN 2016 EVERY
SINGLE ONE OF THESE STATES
IN ’16 WENT FOR DONALD TRUMP.
SOME WERE VERY CLOSE, BUT HE
WENT 6 FOR 6.
IT WAS CRITICAL FOR HIM GETTING
TO 270.
NOW IN THE AVERAGE, FIVE STATES
ARE IN THE AVERAGE, BIDEN LEADS.
TRUMP WITHIN STRIKING DISTANCE,
BUT BIDEN AHEAD.
THE ONLY ONE HERE, NORTH
CAROLINA, WHERE TRUMP LEADS BY A
POINT IN THE AVERAGE OF POLLS.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN IN TERMS OF
ELECTORAL COLLEGE.
THESE STATES HERE AS WE TAKE A
LOOK AT THE BATTLEGROUND MAP,
ROAD TO 270 MAP, THIS IS WHERE
WE LANDED IN 2016.
TRUMP WITH 306.
WHAT YOU SAW THERE, THE BIGGEST
ADVANTAGE, PENNSYLVANIA.
IF BIDEN PICKED UP PENNSYLVANIA.
ANOTHER BIG ADVANTAGE RELATIVE
TO OTHERS, IN MICHIGAN FOR
BIDEN.
GETTING THOSE TWO.
IF HE PICKED OFF PENNSYLVANIA
AND MICHIGAN, THAT WOULD PUT HIM
ON THE CUSP.
HE WOULD BE AT 268.
REMEMBER, OTHER STATES, THERE
WERE SIX.
WISCONSIN, ARIZONA, FLORIDA,
NORTH CAROLINA.
IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS, IF HE
CAN GET PENNSYLVANIA AND
MICHIGAN OR STRONGEST POLLING IN
THOSE BATTLEGROUNDS, PICK UP ONE
MORE, HE CROSSES 270.
WISCONSIN WOULD DO IT.
PICK UP THOSE THREE.
BUT IF HE DOESN’T, SAY TRUMP
HOLDS ON, HOW ABOUT ARIZONA.
YOU SAW IT THERE.
POLLING IN ARIZONA IS
ENCOURAGING FOR DEMOCRATS, TOO.
A LOT OF POTENTIAL PATHS FOR
BIDEN IS WHAT IT IS SUGGESTING.
