He is using the "tipping point" model

that focuses on the blue states that are most competitive, but are likely to put Biden over 270. If Biden holds the "blue wall" states (that do not have GOP Trifecta status), he wins. If Trump pulls off a win in Pennsylvania or Wisconsin, the Florida EV play may be attempted. Current polling shows Biden further ahead in the industrial midwest than in Florida.
