Republican pollster Frank Luntz told CNBC that President Donald Trump must win Arizona and Pennsylvania in order to defeat Democrat Joe Biden. That’s because Luntz said he believes Biden will hold on in Nevada, while Trump will eventually win Georgia and North Carolina.
“Arizona is the place where the battle is going to happen, because the president cannot be reelected without winning both Arizona and Pennsylvania,” Luntz said on “Squawk Box.” Even so, Luntz said he thinks Biden is in a favorable position to capture Pennsylvania, and by extension the presidency.
“Based on the fact that so many of them are coming from Philadelphia or the Philadelphia suburbs, which is so strongly Democratic at this point, … I think that it does flip to Joe Biden,” Luntz said.

Trump campaign to announce lawsuit in Nevada election
President Donald Trump’s campaign is expected to announce plans to file an election-related lawsuit in Nevada at a Thursday morning press conference, NBC News reported.
Previously, the campaign said it had filed suits to halt ballot counting in a Georgia county, Michigan and Pennsylvania as well. The campaign has said it would seek a recount in Wisconsin, too.
The announcement is expected to come just before Nevada election officials release their latest election results update at noon ET Thursday. No winner has been called in the state yet.
Nevada has 6 electoral votes. Democratic candidate Joe Biden currently has 253 electoral votes compared with Trump’s 214, according to NBC News projections with five states still uncalled.
With 86% of expected votes counted, Biden leads with 49.3% while Trump has 48.7%, NBC News projects. Remaining votes to be counted are mailed ballots received on Election Day, mail ballots received this week and provisional ballots.
Trump tweets ‘STOP THE COUNT’ – states keep counting
President Donald Trump demanded on Twitter that votes stop being counted, even as tabulation continues in numerous states where NBC News and other outlets have yet to project a winner.
The president has no authority to stop the count.
Trump sent the all-caps tweet as his campaign takes legal action in multiple states, including Michigan and Pennsylvania, to temporarily halt the counting of ballots as they fight for increased access to observe election officials’ tallying processes.
According to NBC News count, Democratic nominee Joe Biden is currently projected to win 253 electoral votes, while Trump has gained 214 votes.
