We are just 4 days out, my head tells me Hillary should win, I have always believed that. My heart, is never in politics, emotions are poiltless,
But then I thought Gore would win in 2000,
But that election ended up being rigged in one state for sure and stolen. No one will ever convince me otherwise, I dont care if Jeb and K Harris pass a lie detector. They can believe they did not steal a national election, but they did.

As of now I think states that could possibly fall into swing status are:

NV
AZ
UT
CO
IA
WI
MI
OH
PA
NH
NC
GA
FL
AK

Thats a LOT

My predictions are:

NV - C
AZ - C
UT - T
CO - C
IA - T
WI - C
MI - C
OH - T
PA - C
NH - C
NC - C
GA - T
FL - C
AK - T

My prediction: Clinton wins 334 to 204

you can use this map to tally your numbers

My predictions:

NV - Trump
AZ - Trump
UT - Trump (Clinton finishes in third here)
CO - Clinton
IA - Trump (not even remotely a swing state in my mind)
WI - Clinton (not even remotely a swing state in my mind)
MI - Clinton (barely)
OH - Trump
PA - Clinton (won't be close at all)
NH - Clinton (very close)
NC - Trump
GA - Trump (again, not even remotely a swing state)
FL - Trump (I'm pretty damn certain about this. Were he to lose Florida, I doubt he has a shot in North Carolina, etc.)
AK - Trump (Pfft).

My final tally: Clinton wins 272 to 266. Trump ultimately can't make in-roads enough in Colorado or New Hampshire or Michigan to win this thing.

Republican Gains From 2012: Florida, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio, Maine district

My Map


I guess my scenario would entail recount hysteria given that NH would be the decider and I think it'll be close there.

My prediction is that the result will be unpopular with 50% of the electorate.

Your map is a little idiosyncratic thanks to Arizona. I really don't see that one falling out of Trump's favor unless he is getting shellacked which would likely entail him losing Ohio and Iowa as well. Theoretically, you figure all of the usual swing states would fall first before reliable red ones.

That's what makes Hillary's play for Arizona kind of ridiculous when there's razor thin margins in North Carolina, Ohio and Florida at the moment.

Well, higher than that since neither will clear the 50% mark and close to have the country likely won't even vote. I'm estimating turnout at 52% - a combination of disliked candidates and some Republican tactics to obstruct voting access.

1996 turnout: 49.0%
2000 turnout: 51.2%
2004 turnout: 56.7%
2008 turnout: 58.2%
2012 turnout: 54.9%

Hillary had BETTER win Iowa. I'm going to be so embarrassed for my state if she doesn't.

I actually went out and voted yesterday. Went down to our local courthouse and put in my ballot.

Also, Assange just said Russia isn't responsible for the e-mail hacking. No state is, in fact. Said he wanted to clear the air surrounding that.

It's pretty much guaranteed that Trump wins it. Not just based on the polling, but Iowas has infamously been the one state this year that didn't really bend to the national trends. In other words, bad shit for Trump suddenly meant states like Georgia were temporarily in play while Iowa remained pretty solid. I think the first in the nation status has a lot to do with that...they can get accustomed to the candidates being there all the time and then latch on to one depending on what their mood was...both Obama's victories there and now Trump's lead kind of defy where you would have expected that state to go based on its demographics.

FIveThirtyEight's model must be pretty confident in whomever is leading in a given state. Trump's odds of winning New Hampshire are basically identical to his odds of winning the entire thing. Kind of strange because the entire boat sinks, currently, if one of Nevada or Florida or North Carolina don't go his way and all three are practically coin flips.

It seems to me, if you are Trump, the only play left is to go at New Hampshire hard. In fact, if I were his campaign manager, I'd only have him hang out there, for the most part, over the remainder of this campaign. He either wins New Hampshire and the election or he doesn't. It's a small state, so you don't have to convince too many to vote for you, etc. There is absolutely no reason Trump should set foot in Colorado, Michigan or Wisconsin for the rest of this thing. New Hampshire is far, far more likely to budge.

I would've gone with this same strategy in 2004 in retrospect. Kerry should have just hung out in Ohio the entire time and rolled the dice. Yeah, maybe it would have fucked him in another state or whatever, but without Ohio he was toast.

Trump trails in the standard FiveThirtyEight model by 2.9 points. That is basically the margin between Romney and Obama on election day a year ago as the polls were off by a point (Obama won by 3.9).

Reason why Trump's odds are better despite the same national gap is because he under performs in red and blue states and is doing far better in swing states. It'll be interesting to see if he can narrow the national margin in FiveThirtyEight's model to 2 points as that would make the race pretty much a toss-up and start putting states like Colorado and New Hampshire firmly in play.

Piss off. Get your bullshit branding out of here.

I swear you only write shit on this forum and don't bother to read anything anyone else says. To think I'm some mega-Clinton-supporter is a fucking joke. You're oblivious. Sorry, but my understanding is this going to be a landslide, and much like 2012 there's a media perpetuated "close race" because that's the interest of said media. I don't think it'll be close at all. I don't think those people who normally don't vote (the ones rallied by Trump) are going to show up. I don't think many republicans are going to show up. Polls only show opinion, not ability. Enthusiasm is low. Anti-Trump sentiment is higher than anti-Clinton sentiment. It's the next best thing after enthusiasm.

Heck, even if Trump were to win, I don't think it would be close. Either he's got a lot of closeted voter support, or people aren't going to actually go through with it.
