Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Sioux City, Iowa this morning, his first of five rallies scheduled for Sunday.
Trump will speak from the Sioux City Convention Center beginning at 12:00 p.m. Central Time. The event can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
This rally comes just two days ahead of Election Day, and it’s the beginning of a busy Sunday for Trump, during which he will make his final argument in several key swing states. Iowa is an important one, and it’s a state that Trump is currently expected to win. In Real Clear Politics’ polling average, Trump currently leads Hillary Clinton by three percentage points. This is an even greater lead than Barack Obama had in Iowa going into the 2012 election, and he ended up winning the state by a margin of 5.8 percentage points.
Iowa is only worth six electors, but with Trump’s pathway to 270 Electoral College votes being so narrow, he needs just about every single one of the battleground states in order to win. After this rally, Trump heads to Minnesota, which is quite surprising considering that it has been over four decades since a Republican won this state. Minnesota even went blue during the historic 1984 landslide election; the nation’s 49 other states all voted for Ronald Reagan, but Walter Mondale won his home state of Minnesota. Trump claims he is doing well in Minnesota polls, but the only poll to be conducted in the state in the past month showed Clinton up by eight points.
After Minnesota, Trump will head to Michigan for a rally at 6:00 p.m. This is another state Trump has hoped to turn red but where Hillary Clinton holds a substantial lead, ahead of Trump in the state by five percentage points in Real Clear Politics’ polling average. Next up is Pennsylvania, where Trump holds a rally at 8:00 p.m. Although this state has been considered a lock for Hillary Clinton over the past few weeks, a recent poll from Harper showed Trump and Clinton tied.
Finally, Trump will conclude his Sunday with a rally in Virginia, where Hillary Clinton still leads in the polls by an average of 6.3 percentage points.
