Any dems regret running Crooked Hillary? Despite the media onslaught, Trump just keeps coming back.

Rather than get too worked up over national numbers, look at the state polls and find a viable path to 270 EV. It's probably going to come down to Trump having to run the table on North Carolina, Florida and Ohio to get to 253 and then praying he can come up with some combination to reach 270. It can be done, but it's a lot more complicated that a look at the national horse race might imply, and he's trailing in every legit battleground state.

This is what we call "Cherry picking" Trump shouldn't be down to begin with. The fact that he can't seal the deal against Clinton shows how weak of a candidate he is.

If Clinton can hang on to her lead in Pennsylvania and Florida, it is difficult to come up with path to 270 for Trump.

That's where the danger is for him. If Clinton keeps the solid leads in Colorado, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New Hampshire it's going to be impossible for him to win.

Honestly without PA and NH there isn't much of a chance either. His issue is that his message doesn't resonate with college educated voters which makes VA and CO out of reach for him. Makes sense to because he barely won VA and didn't win the areas with the educated voters.

That's why him spending time in CT, MI, and WI is so baffling. He isn't going to win those states.

Actually, according to dems, Trump is the worst person to EVER run for president...potential for world nuclear destruction. Pretty sad if the dems can't muster a candidate to lead by at least 20, right?

How true. If Clinton is the worst Democratic candidate ever, then how bad is Trump to get so thoroughly destroyed by her?

Yep, like I said a stronger candidate should be up 20 considering the dem's description of Trump. They nominated possibly the best person to give Trump his best odds.
