NOTE: The map may suggest a different winner than the direct betting on the left, for two main reasons:
1) The map shows the chance for any Democrat or Republican to win, not just Trump or Biden
2) Counter-intuitively, a candidate can be favored in a majority of states' electoral votes
but also not favored to win the election, if the odds are closer in their favored states,
or if certain key states statistically tend to vote together as a group.
