We’ll have more for you in the next full RedState Electoral College update, but it’s worth noting to day that the map has changed in a hurry.

For weeks Donald Trump was treading water, which wasn’t good because he was a long way from shore. But over the last week, Trump has actually started to win some Republicans back home, pulling votes from Gary Johnson, and winning states back in the polls.

In the last few days, Clinton took Maine District 2 for one electoral vote gain. Meanwhile, Donald Trump has taken Florida, Arizona, North Carolina, and Nevada. That’s a net 60 EV swing in Donald Trump’s favor!

He was so far behind that he’s still losing, 273-265. But he’s close enough that one more state would get him over the top.

The bad news for Trump is that this may be too little, too late, as early voting has already locked in some of Clinton’s earlier lead. But it’s hope for his supporters.
