Purveyor of Truth
Donald J. Trump, the chameleon GOP presidential candidate who is tripping all over himself in the effort to remake his shoddy image, continues to trail HRC in the race for the White House. A Reuters/Ipsos State of the Nation project out today shows HRC with a 95% chance of beating DJT if the election were held today.
If the U.S. presidential election were held today, Democrat Hillary Clinton would win the key swing states of Florida, Ohio and Virginia and have a 95 percent chance of beating Republican Donald Trump to become America’s first female president, according to the Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project.
The project, which combines opinion polls with an analysis of voting patterns under different election scenarios, shows Clinton currently beating Trump in the popular vote by six percentage points and ahead in 19 states, including most of the larger-population ones that heavily influence the outcome of the election.
At the moment, Clinton would win at least 268 votes in the Electoral College, the body that ultimately chooses the next president, just two shy of what she needs to win the White House. On average, the former secretary of state would win by 108 electoral college votes.
Trump would win at least 21 states, many of them with smaller populations, giving him a minimum of 179 electoral votes.
The election is still 10 weeks away, and a great deal could change prior to Nov 8. The candidates are running about even in eight states, including Pennsylvania, Michigan and North Carolina, and the polling sample is too small to determine the winner in Alaska, Wyoming and Washington D.C. But Trump would need to win the 21 states currently in his column and sweep all of the remaining "toss-up" states to win the presidency.
THE REUTERS/IPSOS ESTIMATE OF TURNOUT
With indications the race is tightening a bit since Trump hired a new campaign management team and began his remake of himself, it is a possibility he could pull off a victory. Something that should send electric shock waves through all who understand the danger Trump is to our democratic republic.
