The president is on a trajectory to lose an electoral vote in the reddest of red states.
A worker logs boxes containing mail-in ballots as they are shipped from the Douglas County Election Commission's office to the post office in Omaha, Neb. Over the past half-century, Nebraska has only once delivered one of its electoral votes to a Democratic presidential nominee. Barring a turnaround, this year will mark the second time. The state is one of just two in the nation — the other is Maine — that awards Electoral College votes by congressional district.
In this reddest of red states, Donald Trump is on a trajectory to lose one of them. In the 2nd District, which includes largely Democratic Omaha and its largely Republican suburbs, the president is running 6 or 7 percentage points behind Joe Biden, according to public and private polling.
But inBarack Obama, carrying the 2nd District, picked off one of the electoral votes, marking the first time in 44 years that a Democrat had accomplished that feat. Obama lost the reconfigured district to Mitt Romney inand Trump carried it narrowly four years later. Today, despite the advantage of a favorable map, Trump is on the cusp of undoing the entire scheme.
Though Trump remained ahead of Biden in Sarpy County, the margin was not wide enough to compensate for his shortcomings in Omaha and the surrounding communities of Douglas County. InTrump won suburban voters by about 4 percentage points.
Two years later, they revolted. Democrats built their House majority in the suburbs, and Trump has faltered there ever since. That erosion in the suburbs, where Trump drew the majority of his support four years ago, is the biggest reason he is running so far behind in critical swing states and nationwide. Many Republicans in Nebraska, like other states, believe Trump is in better shape than public opinion polls suggest. They measure support for the president in the proliferation of his yard s, and they recall that Trump over-performed polls four years ago.
Most of Nebraska will not be a challenge for Trump. He thumped Hillary Clinton statewide by 25 percentage points four years ago. But there are departures from orthodoxy in this heavily Republican state — its nonpartisan, unicameral legislature, its refusal to permit charter schools, its unusual commitment to public power. Trump won the district by only about 2 percentage points in And Biden is a less polarizing nominee than Clinton was.
Former state Sen. The paper appealed directly to conservative readers in its endorsement of Biden this past weekend. But there are scenarios in which a victory in the district could push Trump or Biden to the decisive of Electoral College votes. Jill Biden and Doug Emhoff, Sen. On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. But it is being tested in the congressional race between Bacon and Eastman. Eastman is working relentlessly to yoke Bacon to the president.
In recent debates, she goaded Bacon for voting with Trump more than 90 percent of the time. There is some evidence that is a distinction that voters are willing to make. The upshot was that Omaha and its suburbs were not breaking against Republicans. They were breaking singularly against Trump. Former Rep.Omaha women. Swinging.
