I read a National Review story today echoing so many of the "experts" in saying Donald Trump has no path to Electoral College victory...They say that now that he is even or ahead in popular vote polling.
In 2008, a 7.2% vote margin yielded an Electoral College win of 365-173. In 2012 a 3.9% margin produced a 332-206 margin as Indiana, NC and Nebraska's CD-2 flipped.
Stands to reason even a one or two point Clinton margin could provide the votes to flip some more states like Florida, Ohio, and Iowa. They are the most likely and if they flipped it's just a 279-259 for Mrs. Clinton.
At that point , move the national meter another point or two and states like Nevada and NH come into play and that would tie it at 269-269 where the GOP would win in the House, or he could take Maine CD2 and get an even 270.
Another way to get to 270, Trump would need another state...a Wisconsin, a Colorado or a Pennsylvania.
So telling the American people, Mrs. Clinton has a lock is more of the misinformation being peddled as news and analysis, although I agree her path are more numerous than his in a fiddy-fiddy race.
