Trump’s electoral troubles continue as August comes to a close

With just over a week left in August, Trump’s road to the Whitehouse is looking rough.

National polling data is just about worthless because the United States doesn’t elect its president in a true national election. Instead, each state decides how many of its electoral votes should go to win the presidency. CDN is using recent state polling data to show how the election would go if it were held right now – and it’s not a good map for trump.

Based on August polling data from key states, here’s what the results would be if America voted today (it takes 270 electoral votes to win the election):

We decided to favor Trump in some states that would usually be toss-ups with current polling numbers:

Even with those questionable ‘gimme’s’, Trump is in trouble.

Donald needs to win the gimme states we awarded him -AND- take either:

  • Pennsylvania
  • North Carolina and either New Mexico or New Hampshire

The map isn’t looking good for Donald, but perhaps that’s why he’s chosen to shake-up his campaign staff and focus his message.

  1. Repetition is an excellent tool to ‘convince’ or change minds….that often manifests itself into truth. It also often is embraced as validation by those that scurry around to find a reason NOT to follow through on a known responsibility….Predictions are pure speculation based on an individuals personal interpretation of dubious facts and figures.

    Trump’s position on the “polls’ are of minimal concern. History shows that at this stage of the race they go up and down like a roller coaster and we’re all on the ride. True journalism is part of our past and the time has come for every single one of us to take time to research to further define differences AFTER we each clearly DEFINE what we want (remembering that it’s been a long time since anyone has walked on water)

    Attitudes are as contagious as Zika….make sure what your spreads.
