Joe Biden doesn't need Texas or Georgia to win. Joe only needs one of these five scenarios:

1 Michigan, Pennsylvania and Arizona: Biden wins all three states — his best option, given the political environment.
2. Michigan and Pennsylvania + two congressional districts — Nebraska-02 and Maine-02.
3. The Rust Belt: Biden wins Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.
4. Michigan and the Sunbelt: Biden carries Michigan, Arizona and North Carolina.
5. Florida +1: Biden carries Florida, getting him to 261 electoral votes. A win in any of the other battleground states would put him well past 270.
