If Donald Trump retains residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., for another four years, it will most likely be because of his success in four extremely crucial swing states that he most likely needs to win this election: Ohio, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Michigan. If you can or choose to believe the polls at this stage, most will tell you that Trump is basically tied with Joe Biden in Ohio but trails him in the other three states. Because of that, the Trump campaign is pumping cash into television ad buys in those important four states, taking the money from the $5.5 million he had planned on spending in Florida in the final two weeks.

The reason they pulled their ads out of Florida — which is another very important swing state and essentially neck neck-and-neck, according to most polls — is because Trump’s team feels confident they will win the president’s home state. “You have to have a ground game,” Trump communications director Tim Murtaugh said. “Joe Biden does not have one. The president does. That’s why you saw the president close the gap in Florida.”

While Biden has created little excitement making appearances, his campaign is trying to make up for it by spending enormous amounts of cash. Team Biden has outspent Trump 3 to 1 since early September, and it has about $197 million available to try to get hold of the incredibly important swing states, where this election most likely will be won.
