7:08 am

7:09 am
the states that voted for in 2012. there are some challenges here like north carolina. you got to win all of those. then what you have in grey here, these were blue states. these were obama states. these are the best shot blue states for donald trump right now. let me show you what it means. start in ohio. if you average the polls tobl together in ohio, trump is actually ahead of hillary clinton. down in florida, big elect average poll. it is not a state trump's winning but it is a state where he can win. this is a bit of a surprise. you have a lot of talk from the trump people about pennsylvania but right now it is wisconsin that he's close. he's behind but he's within striking distance. closer than people expect. so again, he's going to have to make up some ground there but if he could get wisconsin, look how close he is starting to get leer. then check out maine.
7:10 am
do the vote by congressional district. in this rural congressional district of maine donald trump seems to be running away with it. if you give him that, look how close he is. iowa -- these are both states where he leads in the average. each one is worth six. if you give him iowa, he hits 270. he's at his number. if you give him nevada, he's over 270. here's one terrorist. say clinton takes nevada, trump 270, clinton 268. the votes by congressional district in nebraska. hillary clinton has a chance at winning one of those districts. if that were to happen -- aye-yi-yi. i was saying 269-269.
