Which are the swing states?

Question: Which are the swing states?

Swing states are defined as states with no predictable winner in a Presidential election. The swing states are very important in a Presidential election because they are up for grab by all candidates. Swing states get a lot of attention, advertising, and focus during the election. Therefore, the swing states are also called the battleground states.

The states most likely to be won by a democratic candidate are usually called blue states, while the states that are most likely to be won by a republican candidate are usually called red states. Since a swing state can be won by either candidate, it is often referred to as a purple state (blue and red mix).

The swing states change over time, but states that have gotten a lot of attention in recent years are: Ohio, Florida, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Nevada, Colorado and New York.
