PANIC

If you were to go by the liberal media – and some establishment Republicans for that matter — you’d think Donald Trump has a slim to nil chance of winning the election in November. Based on the calculations of the electoral votes, he simply doesn’t have a path to victory. Too many swing states are swinging the wrong way, and even traditionally red states look blue-ish.

Except.

The polls are tightening. Hillary Clinton’s five to 10 point lead has shrunk to a statistical dead heat. In fact the Real Clear Politics average has Hillary at just 2.7 points ahead.

And now a new Reuters/Ipsos poll shows Trump is closing in on Hillary’s electoral college lead as well.

Per Yahoo News, Republican Donald Trump appears to have carved out a wider path to the White House as a number of states including Florida and Ohio are no longer considered likely wins for Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project released on Saturday.

The project, which combines opinion polls with an analysis of voting patterns under different election scenarios, still shows Clinton would have the best chance of winning the presidency if the Nov. 8 election were held today. Yet Trump has caught up to her level of support in several states.

Clinton now has an 83 percent chance of winning the election by an average of 47 votes in the Electoral College, the body that ultimately selects the president. In late August, the States of the Nation estimated that Clinton had a 95 percent chance of winning by an average of 108 electoral votes.

Over the past few weeks, Clinton’s lead in the national polls has slipped considerably. Polls tend to narrow as Election Day nears, and the Clinton campaign has struggled to overcome controversy about how she handled classified information while serving as secretary of state.

A separate Reuters/Ipsos poll of likely voters showed an 8-point lead for Clinton has vanished since the last week of August.

Clinton is still favored to win 17 states, including many with large, urban populations such as New York, New Jersey and California that heavily influence the outcome of the election. Trump would likely win 23 states, many of them with smaller populations.

The number of states projected for Clinton has dropped over the past few weeks. Two of those states, Ohio and Florida, were considered likely wins for Clinton in late August. Now the candidates are about even in support. Five more states, including Michigan and North Carolina are also up for grabs.

But naturally the Democrats have a few tricks up their sleeves. As we reported earlier today, a federal court has ruled against three states (Alabama, Georgia and Kansas) that required proof of U.S. citizenship for voter registration. The court ruled that would “disenfranchise” poor and minority voters.

Yeah right. Perhaps the court might also rule against airlines whic require I.D. to board a plane, or convenience stores that require I.D. to buy beer, as clearly they also “disenfranchise” poor and minority travelers and drinkers. But I digress…

The good news is, it ain’t over yet. The bad news is…liberals.
