The candidates have been busy on the campaign trail this week in the final push to win over several key battleground states. Trump in particular is hosting a flurry of rallies in the remaining three days to Nov. 3, focusing on Pennsylvania and the Midwest. 

On Sunday, he’s holding five rallies in all the states he won in 2016 but where he is now on defense: Michigan, Iowa, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida. 

Biden is expected to campaign in Pennsylvania on Sunday, and he and his running mate, Sen. Kamala HarrisKamala HarrisWomen set to take key roles in Biden administration Trump campaign appeals dismissal of Pennsylvania election challenge Pressure grows from GOP for Trump to recognize Biden election win MORE (D-Calif.), will travel across the state together on Monday.

Both Biden and Trump have also focused heavily on Florida, holding dueling rallies there this week. If the president does not win the state of Florida, it will be very difficult for him to win reelection. 

A Fox News poll released Friday shows that Biden has an 8-point lead over the president nationally, an increase that is not statistically significant from the 10-point advantage he had earlier this month. 

The Sunday shows will be filled with surrogates and associates of both candidates, including Biden campaign adviser Anita Dunn, who will appear on ABC’s “This Week,” and Trump’s personal attorney Rudy GiulianiRudy GiulianiGiuliani distances Trump campaign from attorney Sidney Powell Team Trump offering 'fire hose' of conspiracy Kool-Aid for supporters Trump campaign appeals dismissal of Pennsylvania election challenge MORE who will appear on “America This Week” with Eric Bolling. 

Meanwhile, Democrats and Republicans have faced off this week in the courts over mail-in ballots following the confirmation of Justice Amy Coney BarrettAmy Coney BarrettAlito to far-right litigants: The buffet is open Hispanics shock Democrats in deep blue California COVID-19: Justice Alito overstepped judicial boundaries MORE

The Supreme Court on Monday voted 5-3 to deny Democrats’ request to reinstate a 6-day extension for receiving mail-in ballots in Wisconsin. The Supreme Court on Wednesday denied a second request from the GOP to block a mail-in ballot due date extension. The decision means that the court would not hear the case until after Election Day.

Barrett took to the bench of the Supreme Court for the first day on Tuesday, but did not take part in considering the case. 

Thursday, the high court denied a Republican bid to fast-track a similar case to block mail-in ballot extensions in North Carolina. 

Both rejections are a significant blow for Republicans and Trump.
