F6FHellcat, you are correct. Though America consists of 50+1 voting states, only 11 states are required for victory in a presidential race. That’s a little more than 10%. Of course, any candidate who follows this strategy is in for a risky proposition as the two largest states - California and Texas - are nominally split between Democratic and Republican. More important are the larger swing states, states like Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Florida with no clear cut favorite. And true this, the vast majority of a candidates’ time and money goes into these states.
