THR EV Watch: Clinton 294, Trump 244
I took some time to catch up on The Hedgehog Report Electoral College Watch today. In lieu of posting the individual polls over the last few days, I thought I;d take a look at where things currently stand.
Right now, based on polling, Hillary Clinton holds a 294-244 electoral vote lead over Donald Trump.
Based on polling as of right now, Trump would takes the following states won by Barack Obama in 2012: Florida, Iowa and Ohio. Clinton would take the following state won by Mitt Romney in 2012: North Carolina.
More recent polling is showing trends towards Trump in Nevada and North Carolina and Maine’s 2nd Congressional District, but that only adds up to an additional 22 electoral votes, which still would leave Trump short of 270 electoral votes.
