Election 2020 – Georgia Predictions by County

Georgia is a state with an interesting track record. Until the 1964 election, it was primarily a blue state, and then suddenly flipped hard right with only 3 elections going to the Democrat candidate and, interestingly enough, one going for Independent. The factors that play in to this are subtle. GDP annual growth plummeted in mid 2019 and has not recovered, it hasn’t been this low since it was tracked. That last time was when it was in the midst of the 2008 economic collapse and the years recession. Does this play a role in how someone votes? Perhaps, but although I mention it, the fact of implosion doesn’t play as big of a role in my analysis. You see, regardless of who was President, Georgia was still attractive to people as a place to live. In 1993-ish, population growth retracted and that impacted economic growth, it picked back up again in 2004 to 2012 and then retracted again. Much deeper, nearly 25% in previous years, from around 5% to around 3.7%. Meanwhile it maintained that hard Republican lean. In 2020, I see a transition to Blue. Social unrest playing a role in the direction all states are seeing administrations and those tasked with policing the population have driven a wedge into the electorate. The counties listed below do not reflect the outcome in terms of quantity of counties voting “red” or “blue” being the determinate criteria. Suffice it to say that my post at the State level of election predictions defines who I suggest will win. Below are the George County predictions. Do you find this interesting? Do you have a suggestion?

Georgia is a relatively large state with a lot of counties. It was interesting to assess this volume of counties. My assessment of Georgia would, in previous elections, place them firmly in Red, but this year is entirely different.
