Trump needs to win every state that's a tossup to get to 270. Every single one.

There might be two of them.
1 Washington state Democratic elector won


gotta wonder if this could spread to other states. If I were an R elector, I would not vote for Trump.

I agree with Nate Silver.

If Hillary Clinton loses California she will lose the election.

Trump wants to have a roughly 1 in 3 or 1 in 4 chance of winning? Why wouldn't he want a better chance than that? Does he not actually want to be President?

As an employee of ESPN (who owns his site) and a paid ABC correspondent, Silver is part of the media. It's in the media's interest to make the election look as close as possible and to stretch out the suspense so people will keep clicking on his site and tuning in to listen to him.
Silver's become known as "Click bait Nate" because he keeps making these ridiculous statements to get people to click on his site.

Keep dreaming Florida is already gone for Trump 67% of voters already voted.

I'm gonna sleep nice and relaxed tonight, but I would be worried if I was Trump supporter. You have around 20 hours of some hope then you lose.

Do you ever actually read any of Nate's writing? It is as far from click-bait as the internet gets. His articles are insightful, well-informed and based on an analytical analysis of actual data.

Btw, Silver never produced a headline that said Clinton was "just one state away from an EC loss." Silver's headlines are nothing like that.
