Dr. Suzanne Chod shares final expectations ahead of polls closing on election day

With the last hour ahead of polls closing on election night, Dr. Suzanne Chod, associate professor of political science at North Central College, took to the spotlight and was interviewed on WGN News to share what final expectations we could see from voter turnout. The focus was on the swing states and what voters could anticipate for an outcome.

“What we’re hearing a lot of and what I think is really important centers around Pennsylvania,” said Dr. Chod. “We look at the paths to victory for both candidates, and while the paths are a little narrower for Trump and there’s a couple of more for candidate Biden, a lot rests in Pennsylvania. Specifically, if President Trump can win Arizona, North Carolina and Georgia, and Joe Biden is expected to win Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota, then it really comes down to Pennsylvania. And if Joe Biden can pick up Pennsylvania then it will come down to Arizona. I think those are the two main states to watch tonight.”
