This is probably true due to how badly high income states are penalized by the tax “cuts” and lower income “red” states still see a pretty nice bump(relatively) due to the change to the standard deduction. So the true backers of #45 get a GREAT deal here, his grassroots red state support still gets something “more” than the sharp stick in the eye the average middle income Californian got. Soooo….

That means he wins in 2020 without a return to the traditional Electoral College and paper ballots no matter how the numbers crunch here.
