Dr. Stephen Maynard Caliendo talks key swing states amid 2020 Presidential Election

The ongoing uncertainty surrounding the presidential race continues and votes continue to be tallied. Democratic nominee Joe Biden has pulled ahead in Pennsylvania and in Georgia, President Trump must win both of those states to have any shot at keeping his office in the White House. Dr. Stephen Maynard Caliendo, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at North Central College, interviewed with FOX 32 Chicago on Friday, November 6, where he discussed the projection of the key swing states in the election, and if there was a path to reelection for President Trump.

“There are still votes to be counted,” said Dr. Caliendo. “We want to make sure the process goes the whole way through. Certainly, we know the president has signaled he will have some challenges in key states. But I imagine the major media organizations when the states acknowledge that they have counted all the votes in front of them—maybe save some provisional ballots—that they will make a call. It will feel at that moment that we have a good sense of who the next president will be.”
