17. The Dem electoral ceiling is rising, while the Republicans' remains where it is.

Previous GOP strongholds like VA and NC are now swing states. Other states like Arizona are slowly moving in that direction.

Democrats have an electoral base of 270 EV if you CO remains a blue state (261 without). The Republican electoral base is 205.



That's just solid, non-swing states, which means the Republican path to victory will remain very narrow as it has the last 2 elections.
