7:07 am
>> they are rounding third and heading for home. mary, thank you. hillary clinton meantime, heaping for a strong victory that will boost other democrats down ballot ready to capitalize on her momentum. her campaign is feeling so good about this map they're now targeting red state, some that haven't turned blue in decades and abc's devin dwyer is here with a look at the republican states in play. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump's path to the white house as you said is shrinking fast. just take a look at our latest abc news r you see the states in red. we project donald trump to win the states in blue, hillary clinton to win, that put her well above the 270 electoral votes she'd need to win the presidency. in fact, democrats are so confident they're talking about and spending money in states that until recently had been die-hard republican. take a look. arizona, texas, georgia, even utah, a toss-up state in our ratings. 9 clinton team has their sights on all of these states. republicans say all of this is
7:08 am
>> hard to believe utah is a toss-up state. what's clinton edge in the battleground states for republicans attempting to keep control of the senate. >> reporter: there is real worry about a so-called trump effect in some of those races. democrats need just four or five seats to take control of the senate. they are hammering republicans like senator marco rubio of florida, kelly ayotte of new hampshire, richard burr for their ties to trump and be a toss-up. those incumbents are vulnerable. >> could you expound on the turnout, devin. i know voting is under way. who has the edge so far? >> reporter: yeah, people are voting. the numbers coming in this morning, the latest numbers 4.9 million americans at least have already voted. we don't know how they voted but based on party registration and other data, experts see positive signs for clinton in florida and north carolina. trump doing pretty well in ohio and iowa.
7:09 am
washington is abc news political contributor kristen soltis anderson. kristen, on average trump is about six points behind clinton nationally. historically has any candidate come back to win after being behind so far this close to election day? >> this kind of comeback is pretty rare when it comes to presidential elections but donald trump did write the book, "art of the comeback." he often points to that election where ronald reagan about this time according to gallop's polling was down about six points in polarized election and abc's poll that came out this week you had nine out of ten clinton supporters who say they're with clinton. you had nine out of ten trump supporters who said, i'm with trump. people don't seem to think they're going to change their mind barring some huge event, so right now trump has a very uphill battle ahead of him. >> kristen, good morning to you. we just heard from devin so four or five spots to regain the senate for the democrats. we know there are several senate
7:10 am
>> i'm keeping an eye on north carolina. that's a state that should be a red state. it was a state that mitt romney won but in north carolina not only do you have a clinton lead, you have a governor's race there where the republican governor is facing a tough re-election. and so you have senator richard burr, the republican, who is very slightly ahead in the polls right now. but that's one of those races that if there's a big clinton wave, a big democratic wave, he could be one of those that wasn't expected to be a seat that was in play a few months out if the trump wave is big enough. >> kristen, on that point for independents or even republicans that may vote for hillary clinton, how does the gop try to keep them loyal to their senate and congressional candidates in other races or is it really just up to the candidate? >> it has a lot to do i think with this message that says, if hillary clinton is going to be the president, then don't you need a republican congress to balance her out? in abc's polling, they asked people, if hillary clinton is going to be president, would you rather have a democratic
7:11 am
that will be a sort of check on her? and by 53-40, people preferred that republican legislature to be a check on her. so i expect you'll start to hear that message from folks in these states where if they suspect some folks will vote for clinton but will want to have her balanced out. >> you are a pollster. we also know that trump's campaign manager, kellyanne conway, is a pollster, as well. so she's got to be having closed door honest conversations with her boss. what is she telling had im. >> i h him you need to focus on the states you can actually win. trump's campaign has really been built for awhile on the idea that he was going to dramatically change the map. pick up states that republicans never had a chance at winning before. but as that path has narrowed he needs to spend time having as many rallies as he can exciting his supporters in states like ohio, states like florida, states he realistically could pull off rather than focusing on some of these other states that are a bit more of a reach.
7:12 am
