Using the 270 to win template, post your predictions here




I have based my prediction on Clinton's polling strength in the NE Firewall (barring some outlier polls) and also the early voting reports in NV, NC and FL. The Latino vote to drag her over the line in AZ.

Ohio may go to Trump and I was tempted to add Georgia to the Clinton column.

Also watch Texas, I've given it to Trump based on polling but the female/Latino vote might give a very outside chance to Clinton (highly improbable).

I gave Ohio and Arizona to Trump but Clinton all of Maine. I have her between 323 and 324 EV (Nebraska's split vote). I thought the thing to watch, though, was the transit strike ongoing in Philly that could disrupt inner city voting and depress Clinton's vote there. (Philly is a big, big need for her.) But, the strike ended this morning! The end of the email saga really put the wind in her sails. The LA Times has your same prediction, by the way, adding Arizona and Ohio to her column.

I also have the Senate going 49-49, but with the two Independents caucusing with the Dems, that gives them 51%. It's too close. I was hoping for 54 seats. Comey fixed that.

oops, should have had a closer look at Ohio! Still I'm counting on women to bring this home for Clinton.

edit:

one further piece of info for digestion is the large number of undecideds. In the GOP primaries, until Trump had the nomination tied up, the undecided never broke for him, always his opponents.

She has a solid 2-3% lead in most aggregators. A polling miss one way would give a narrow Trump victory, a polling miss the other way would give Clinton a blowout (had to be careful with my workding there considering the history).
