    That map sure looks different than the ones you generally see. Which is why it caught my attention.

    Not an expert, but the poll listed was done in September. The last couple of weeks seem to have been pretty bad for Trump, and I'd say he is looking at fighting one hell of an uphill battle.

    I'm sorry, this is his last video.

    There are so many opinions out there, and everyone talking about it seems like they know something. I don't know who or what to believe, is all I'm saying.

    Seems rather optimistic from a Trump supporters viewpoint.
    My guess is he has about a 35% chance of getting elected.
    280-285 electoral sounds reasonable for Clinton.

    He used one of Nate Silver's maps. Here is what he has to say today.
    Use the buttons in the upper left corner to see the three different projections.

    I am no expert, but I know this: the polls will end up being really off from what the actual results will be this election and everyone will be shocked that they were so far off. Just like the polls were really off every other election in the last decade.

    I don't know which way they will be really off. Could be in favor of Trump or Clinton, but the polls have been really biased and subjective for a long long time.

    Trump really needs to have a major lead or he will not be able to overcome the dems voter fraud, illegal alien vote, criminal vote, dead people vote. It is what they count on or they would never win.

    Trump/Pence 2016. It really is the last chance.

    This sounds like wishful thinking like last election when the right kept saying the polls were off and even the Romney campaign was convinced the polls were wrong. Trump will not win VA, PA, CO and most likely not NH and FL.
