    Located at the heart of the Rust Belt, Pennsylvania is a traditional blue-collar state that is gradually turning Republican. Donald Trump won the state in 2016 with promises of boosting the economy and revitalising the coal industry. The state’s economy was traditionally based on mining, but today the unemployment rate is climbing. Worth 20 Electoral College votes, the state is often decisive in elections.
