Reading The Tea Leaves: Trump's Electoral College map...

""I’ve updated the map below to reflect our internal polling. Red states are still considered safe Trump states. Blue states fit safely in Hillary’s column. Gray states are toss-ups, but the new addition of pink states show where our hard work has been paying off the most.
EXPAND THE MAP
As you can see above, we have strengthened our leads in six battleground states: Florida, Ohio, Iowa, Maine, North Carolina, and Nevada. If this trend continues until Election Day, we can bank on 266 electoral votes."

"From there, we only need ONE of the following states to win (in order of where we’re doing best): Colorado, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Virginia, New Mexico, or Minnesota."
Trump can only capitalize on Part B, if Part A is inline like they say. But is it? I think Ohio and Iowa are gone. Trump will win both of those states. I do not believe that Maine or Nevada (and especially Nevada where I hear Democrat early voting has surpassed 2012 levels) will go Trump. Florida and North Carolina are the big "if's". We will keep watching...
Restoring the honor!
