Joe Biden was able to surpass 270 electoral votes with a coalition of young voters, older voters and suburbanites, especially women, in the 2020 election. 

That's according to Bruce Gyory, a political science adjunct professor and a former advisor to New York governors. 

"Biden voters are overwhelmingly women, women of color, college educated voters regardless of race and ethnicity, suburban women and younger voters," Gyory said this week. "He had a real, very wide margin of support there."

Trump, meanwhile, struggled to expand on his electoral victory of 2016, even as he outperformed the publicly polling in key swing states. 

"(Biden) pushed Trump into a generational cul-de-sac where there were just not enough voters in that 40 to 55 age bracket to sustain a majority in the Electoral College or the popular vote," Gyory said. 

If that voting bloc sounds familiar, it's because it's similar to what has been a base for Gov. Andrew Cuomo in New York.

The state's absentee ballots are yet to be fully tabulated, but the outcome will likely show something similar to what happened nationwide: Biden doing well in urban centers and with suburban counties around New York City, while Trump picking up more rural areas. 

Polling, of course, was off the mark in key battleground states, leading to the expectation of a landslide that wasn't in states like Pennsylvania, Wiscons,in and Michigan.

"They have very high refusal rights and if they're not very careful you when you get refusal rates to make sure that your follow up calls follow the random methodology, you're not going to get a problem," Gyory said.
