Shocked CNN Admits Clinton Has Dropped Below 270 On Electoral Map

Tyler Durden's picture

Despite the very recently increasing lead of Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump in the "polls", even CNN has been forced to admit today that "this race has tightened."

In a shocking turn of events for the Clinton campaign's propaganda arm, the latest snapshot of the Electoral College map heading into the final days shows Hillary Clinton has dropped below 270 electoral votes for the first time in CNN's electoral map when adding up the states that are either solidly Democratic or leaning in her direction.

 

CNN made four moves in the map since their last update and all of them are in Donald Trump's direction.

Maine's 2nd Congressional District moves from "battleground" to "lean Republican"

 

New Hampshire moves from "lean Democrat" to "battleground"

 

Ohio moves from from "battleground" to "lean Republican"

 

Utah from "battleground" to "lean Republican"

Leaving the scorecard as follows...

 

As The Hill notes, Trump has been closing in on Clinton's lead both nationally and in several battleground states. Although the Democratic nominee still holds an advantage, CNN's map now shows more opportunity for the GOP nominee to reach the required number of electoral votes to secure the presidency.

Ironically, given our earlier comment, CNN has now folded again and admit their latest national poll shows Trump and Clinton deadlocked.

Another national survey shows a near-even race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in the final weekend before Election Day.

 

The former secretary of state has 44% of support among likely voters in a McClatchy-Marist poll released Saturday while the businessman has 43%, within the poll's margin of error.

 

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has 6% of the vote while Green Party nominee Jill Stein garners 2%.

 

"Although Clinton and Trump are separated by the slimmest of margins, the Electoral College can present a very different picture," said Dr. Lee M. Miringoff, director of The Marist College Institute for Public Opinion. "Close popular votes can, but do not necessarily, translate into tight battles for 270 electoral votes."

 

The poll included voters who are undecided but leaning toward a candidate or who have already voted.

 

When the McClatchy-Marist poll last reported these results in September, Clinton was ahead of Trump by 6 points among likely voters nationally.

Of course all of this means Trump is winning in a landslide.

Um, no, actually Clinton is still winning.

Thank goodness this ‘polls’ charade has only three more days to go.

Then we go back to normal. Sorry, there won’t be no revolution, chaos, or anything closer to that.

But if Trump wins it’s bad news for the dollar, bad news to US exporters/importers, but good news for gold. Interest rates will go up in December bringing the inflated stock market bubble to a end for a awhile.

Interesting.

In defense of Hillary, Escrava seems to saying that should Hillary win, things stay or return to..."normal"...without ever saying that the things that are decidedly "abnormal" (a facade if you will) in her view are directly attributable to people just like Hillary.

Now how weird is that? ;-)

Mewn, people are creatures of habit, meaning changes are not easy accepted, and even less implemented.

The problem with Trump is that he doesn’t understand that. Trump, and his followers, have this nostalgic view of America, you know, “we can do whatever we put our minds to it” inbreeded in the America attitude.

Gee, guess what? You can no longer do it. Actually, you should change this attitude. But you and I know that, it won’t happen.

There are about 90 millions adults that are not working. Now say that the next President invade Canada and kill all the Canadians. Now the US would have 17 million new jobs and enough oil to sustain these 17 million jobs plus about 2 million barrels to export.

Now say that the new President decided to do the same in Mexico what he did to Canada: Now US would have created 34 million jobs. In Mexico these 17 million American workers would have enough oil to cover plus about 800 thousand barrels to export.

Now, Mexico oil production is a steep decline. In Canada, tar sands got them sometime, because Canada crude oil is in decline.

Right now the US is consuming 19 million barrels of oil a day. If the US grows to 22 million barrels a day, where will the US get the oil from?

Now if you wonder why the US became the service economy there’s your answer.

 

“To lift 15 kilograms of oil 5 meters out of the ground takes about 735 joules of energy, just to overcome gravity. The higher the lift, the greater the energy requirement. The most concentrated and most accessible oil is extracted first; thereafter, more and more energy is required to find and produce oil. As soon as the energy outlay is greater than the energy yield, the resource becomes an energy sink.”

Not sure how you draw that line, US became a service economy because of the need to hide inflation (money printing). They exported all their manufacturing through trade deal backdoors allowing manufacturers to move operations to low wage and low tax countries to keep production costs low, profits high and prices down at the expense of middle/lower class Americans.

BTW I'm Canadian come kill us all in February you pussies :)

If you want to keep your stink winter you can keep your stink winter. We Americans don’t want anything to do with your stink weather. Plus we already have about 1/3 of your oil. Well, until Trump becomes the President and call you your Prime Minister a frikking liberal or something like that.

Have you ever considered the real possibility that you are insane?

Even while ADMITTING Obama is presiding over fully one third of Americans being unemployed and doing NOTHING ABOUT IT you've got some other cockeyed theoretical mental exercise saying that "the next President" will invade Canada killing all its citizens? I'll descend into the depths of your insanity only to say that, the probability of that happening is about a negative 50 on a scale of positive 1 to 100 as an invasion of a Crown province is something England (and the Queen) wouldn't idly stand by and watch.

But as I swirl around in the centrally planned mists of your demented mind, please tell me, are all these burger flippers, #safeplacers and special snowflakes coming out of college natural born oil infrastructure workers or will there be some sort of government training program they will be FORCED to march off to everyday until qualified? ;-)

Escrava Isaura's picture

I was putting into perspective so the reader can ‘somehow’ visualize the scale of the problem.

 

unrulian's picture

thanks for scaling the problem so we can understand, you really cleared things up

/s

nmewn's picture

The "problem" is Made in China...Made in Mexico...not MADE here. The "problem" is globalist oligarchs walking hand-in-hand with "crony public officials" (like the Pay-to-Play Klintons) raping & pillaging entire cultures & continents without the slightest regard for human dignity in general or you & I in particular.

Coming from Brazil you of all people should know that unless you are being consciously, willfully ignorant.

N0TME's picture

Right on the nail Sir.

Escrava Isaura's picture

You can’t have if made here because US is no longer self-sufficient in energy. As well as in many other commodities.

Also, most Americans can no longer afford things made in Mexico or China. How do you think these Americans will afford it made here?

Again, you libertarians have this nostalgic view of the past, even that was achieved by looting other nations, but that you conveniently ignore.

Trump or Hillary cannot fix our problem because we don’t have a political or economic problem. The planet has a demographic and thermodynamics problem.

The population overshot the planets ability to sustain it. This problem will only gets worse, and it will get worse exponentially, starting next decade. Then we have this problem that is: More energy and technology are required to find and extract the new energy.

So as population grows and we have less and less energy more people will be unemployed.

Neither Clinton or Trump, no matter how sophisticated they might seem to their followers, can get around these problems, period.

Great.

So please tell us, first: What would be your approach if you were the President for the young generation? How will you pay for it?

Second, if I heard Trump correctly, he wants to start a trade-war by imposing tariffs. He also wants others to pay for US military presence on their nations. Would you pay?

So, you ignorant libertarians understand, the US is the biggest beneficiary of the current trade. The biggest world consumer while having the lowest prices. The world can’t wait to end this America privilege so these nations will get a massive kick the can for their own people.

Yes, there are people left behind, like the white-trash, but if the US libertarians start a trade-war, US entire system collapses because, just to feed Americans, it takes 10 calories of hydrocarbon for each calorie of food.

Do you really think that the libertards are gonna produce enough food by hands? Most wouldn't be able to produce enough to feed themselves, even less the rest of America.

Stop bickering and get real.

Who will pay for it??

That right there is where you and your socialist ilk all go off the fucking rails! It is precisely the mentality that someone else owes you a living simply because you exist that is so completely fucked.

Get this through your over-ripened, putrid green gorde .... NO ONE OWES YOU ANYTHING!!

FUCK, I am so sick and tired of this shit. This country was built on the principal that you have to pay your own way and earn your own damn living.

I started from nothing and have held at least one job since I was 13. I paid my way through college (double major) while working full time. I worked two jobs (full time & a part time one) after college to pay off my school loans. I have never taken public assistance ... even when TSHTF in 2008 and it looked bad. Instead I doubled down and have thrived because I refused to quit.

People like you really piss me off, which is surely your trolling mission.

Please just FOAD already.

Hillary has to pay for entertainers to get anyone to show up at her rallies.

greenskeeper carl's picture

That was my thought as well. Its pathetic. In order for her to get anyone to show up at her rallies, she has to pay celebrities to put on a fucking concert. I assume she is paying them, but even if she isn't, the same point is still valid. She can't just get up on stage and draw a crowd. No one cares. She can barely fill up an auditorium, while trump is turning away thousands from large venues because they don't have any more room.

 

From what Ive gathered by occasionally browsing the comment sections of liberal sites, about 20% of her supporters are enthusistic hilary voters, mostly either becasue vagina or global warming. The only ones who really extoll her glorious record have the stench of paid campaign workers pasting the same nonsense. All the rest of those who say they are voting for her are only doing so to keep that mean orange man out of the white house.

Escrava Isaura's picture

Hillary has being around for over 30 years. Trump is new, political speaking, that’s why he attracts “call” attention. 30 years from now no one will know the Trump name, or could care less.

By the way, the main difference of the conservative approach versus of the liberal is that the liberal policies will fail first.

 

 

Miffed Microbiologist's picture

This is inordinately simplistic. History is rife with examples of exemplary men and women whose ideas, discoveries and works have made a difference. They are long gone but still remembered and honored. The only thing Hillary has done is to show what evil coupled with unbridled ambition with no restraint can accomplish. Her historical mark will be a Fecal Stain tinged in blood.

It must have been heart breaking for her, nobody showing up to her rally's,

having to drag out her husband, Obama and the wookie, Al Gore, oh my...

Now resorting to hanging out at concerts, fantasizing the screaming fans are hers,that more then 50 people would actually care to hear her speak...

Too damn funny, and pathetic, while today, Kaine has a "small line" of three waiting to hear him speak, here in Florida.

Keep adjusting those polls, bastards!

What I thought was funy was the JayZ rally the other day.

After he finished everyone started leaving. She should have had him sing, if thats what you call it, last.

Trump by at least 10 points in Florida would be my guess.

The Only way Hillary can draw a crowd is to team up with popular artists:

Clinton held a campaign rally with Jay-Z and Beyoncé, drawing 10,000 people with free tickets

Many of them exited before Clinton spoke, and Trump drew a larger crowd by himself in Pennsylvania

Donald Trump clobbered Hillary Clinton on Saturday morning for appearing with Jay-Z in Cleveland

The rapper dropped one F-bomb and N-word after another, and then Hillary embraced him onstage

Clinton has been openly critical of Trump's 'tone' and the 'lewd' language he has used in the past

'I tell you what: I've never said what he said in my life!' Trump declared in Tampa, Florida
