Three days before the election: The president and his rival will hold rallies in Pennsylvania and Michigan, which are considered critical states and were an important part of Trump's victory in 2016 • According to recent polls, Biden leads both states but Trump hopes to change the picture at the last minute

Last line:

After both President Donald Trump and his Democratic rival Joe Biden arrived in Florida over the weekend to rally support for the swinging key state, the two turn their attention to the "steel belt" that actually led to the 2016 upheaval, assuming victory in the Midwest Could lead to the coveted number of 270 electors and a win this coming Tuesday.

President Trump is expected to hold four rallies in swinging Pennsylvania, where he won the previous election against rival Hillary Clinton by just 45,000 votes.

Biden will also come to the state and hold his own rally in Philadelphia.

The two candidates are also expected to hold rallies in neighboring states - North Carolina, Wisconsin and Michigan.

Rust belt countries, formerly called the steel belt and the heart of American heavy industry, have experienced economic decline in recent decades, with many factories leaving the United States for countries such as Mexico and China.

In the past these states were considered democracies because of the power of the unions in them, but in the 2016 election, they switched sides and actually led to Trump’s victory. 

Trump hopes to keep them in the election campaign, but many of them are considered swinging states, and even tend in Biden's direction.

According to polls in Pennsylvania, which is considered a key state, Biden leads the country by about five percent and Michigan by about eight percent, but Trump hopes his visit to the region will bring state voters back to him and ensure his victory again in them - and across the United States.

Concern at Biden headquarters

What encourages the president in the meantime is a low percentage of Democrat voters in one of the most important counties in Florida - and thus in the entire United States, Miami Dade County.

Activists in the Democratic campaign told the news site Politico that due to the corona plague, no budget was received for door-to-door activities and information booths as in previous election campaigns and the next thing to stagnate in the campaign in the critical district.

In the Biden campaign, they were afraid of being seen as not worried about the spread of the virus and were content with a network and telephone presence.

As a result, Democratic voters come to vote at a lower rate than those Republicans in the key district.

The county is considered a Democratic stronghold but the gap the Democratic candidate managed to open on his Republican opponent is much smaller than what the party expected and even smaller than what Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton managed to achieve in the 2016 election loss.

"We have not received any budget for activists and stand operators who will engage in the most necessary type of activity, face to face," said Frederica Wilson, a representative of the House of Representatives representing one of the districts where the black population is large.

152,964 Republican voters had already gone to the polls during the early voting while only 146,371 Democrats came to vote.

This is a big blow for the party that should have an easy victory.

Along with the Democrats there are still over two hundred thousand votes that came in the mail network, but they are a much smaller advantage than in previous years.

The Democratic Party hopes to succeed in inciting black voters in the county to vote during Sunday sermons in churches affiliated with the African American community.

But here, too, the Democrats face a challenge since most of the ceremonies will be held on the Internet and field activists will have a hard time reaching everyone.
