All eyes are on the midwest on Friday as the two presidential candidates descend on the states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

Donald Trump’s election victory in 2016 was based on his surprise win in a trio of states – Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania – which had traditionally voted Democrat.
