If any battleground state currently in Hillary’s column is switched, say New Mexico, then Trump would be the winner. Tomorrow is going to be a squeaker.
There are a lot of things that could change in this Electoral map when the actual votes are counted. RCP’s toss ups states still number 15 and they have 171 Electoral votes. But when you apply the current RCP poll averages to the toss ups you get a very close finish.
You may disagree with the projection. You may think it requires Trump to win too many close contests. But, as Allahpundit points out, the RCP state averages called the winner of 49 out of 50 states correctly in 2012, missing only Florida. And as to Florida the RCP Average now has Trump up by 0.2 points. Florida is a must win for Trump. He cannot possibly win the presidency without it.
Fasten your seat belts. Election Day looks to be interesting.
