Most importantly, Clinton is still ahead, with a 74 percent chance of winning according to the polls-only model and a 70 percent chance according to polls-plus.

Looks better than it did. Of course, I would rather see HRC loosing by 20 points in each state so I can sleep better at night knowing she will never be the first woman President. That said, if Mr. Trump keeps up the good work, I like his chances. People are starting to pay attention. The more they pay attention the further she falls.

No worried at all. The votes haven't started coming in yet. I'm going to say that Americans are smarter than the media and polling agencies think. We still have the DNA running through our bodies that was used to get our ancestors here to fight for what we have and maintain it, and I suspect we'll do likewise.

Same DNA running through all those Latino's who will be voting for Hillary eh?

Just keep denying the importance of the little things; you know like the electoral college, campaign offices, fund raising etc. It's way easier to say trump tweets way better and shouts obscenities at his rallies that just gets his horde so excited.

What an amazing political season.

Here is an inescapable fact: The Blue Wall® + PA + NH = 273 Electoral Votes.

In PA, Hillary leads by 6.0% (RCP average).

In NH, Hillary leads by 9.3% (RCP average).

Whatever happens in every other swing state DOES NOT MATTER (and you know that Hillary will unquestionably win at least a few of those other swing states, as well as states like AZ, GA, etc., possibly)

Wow. It's been nice knowing y'all.

Buc - it's poll based and the polls have been skewed for a while now and that's why intelligent people don't trust them but hey - anything to make you feel better. If he's no threat why do you keep posting? Nervous much!

I'm pretty sure Trump's strategies involve looking at polls. I sure hope so. Would be political malpractice by his handlers not to.....
