clinton leading donald trump by 1 point. 46 to 45%. that is within the margin of error. gary johnson and jill stein are together receiving 3% which is enough to swing the vote for clinton or trump. we're looking at the key states that will decide the election. while trump appears to be behind clinton in electoral votes, polls show that he can still win. it won't be easy, though. the states in the dark gray you see behind me here are that could go either way. florida, north carolina, new hampshire, utah, and nevada. out west. well, the red states are leaning republican, utah, nebraska, iowa, and ohio and georgia. the blue states are leaning democrat. colorado, wisconsin, michigan, pennsylvania, and virginia. now if trump wins every battleground state he'll win the election. he can also win if he loses an important state like north carolina for example but flips
