Sports commentators talk about teams and athletes ‘peaking at the right time’. Is THAT what we’re seeing here?
These rapid numbers changes could give a guy vertigo. It’s looking like a nail-biter, but the momentum seems to favor…
“FOX NEWS ELECTORAL SCORECARD: MAP SHIFTS AGAIN IN TRUMP’S FAVOR, AS CLINTON HOLDS EDGE,” FOX NEWS, NOVEMBER 7, 2016:
The battleground map is shifting once again in Donald Trump’s favor, according to the latest Fox News Electoral Scorecard, portending a potentially tight race Tuesday against Hillary Clinton, who continues to hold the electoral-vote advantage.
According to an update to the scorecard released Monday, Clinton can still get to the necessary 270 electoral votes by winning all the states rated “solid” or “leaning” Democratic.
But just barely. Doing so would get Clinton to 274.
Trump is looking at a narrow – but expanding – path to 270, and he could win by snatching up the toss-ups and flipping at least one state currently seen as leaning toward Clinton.
The following updates were made Monday morning to the Fox News Decision Team’s ratings for key battlegrounds:
Arizona changes from “toss up” to “lean Republican”
Iowa changes from “toss up” to “lean Republican”
Nevada changes from “toss up” to “lean Democrat”
North Carolina changes from “lean Democrat” to “toss up”
Utah changes from “toss up” to “lean Republican”
The board is starting to tilt Trump. Hillary is scrambling to shore up states that were once solidly ‘hers to lose’.
Until the votes are counted, we won’t know for sure. But for now?
Against all the odds…
and even dissent in his own party…
…for now? He’s still got a shot.
