Yes, Donald Trump can win. Here are 4 maps that prove it.

Trump

Two things that may seem contradictory at first are true of this election in its final days:

1. Donald Trump is making up ground on Hillary Clinton.

2. Hillary Clinton still has a solid hold on the 270 electoral votes she needs to be elected president in six days’ time.

But, how solid is the Democratic nominee’s grip on that 270? I thought it would be worth fiddling around with our terrific electoral map tool to see how many realistic paths Trump has to 270 electoral votes as a way of answering that question. (By realistic, I mean could actually happen. So, no, Trump winning California is not an option I explored.)

1. Trump 272, Clinton 266

This map gives the Republican nominee all of the states Mitt Romney won in 2012, as well as Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Ohio and New Hampshire. Of that group, Iowa and Ohio look like the easiest lifts for Trump, while Colorado and New Hampshire look the toughest.

2. Trump 273, Clinton 265

    HE WILL IF YOU DO THE BELOW

    GOOGLE 2 THINGS, (THE NEW CLINTON CHRONICLES 2015) AND, (HUMA ABEDIN TERRIOST), LISTEN TO BOTH, THEN VOTE.

    I BELIEVE WASHINGTON IS A NEST OF MUSLIM SPYS.

    IF YOU SEND THIS TO ALL IN YOU EMAIL, AND ASK THEM TO DO THE SAME TODAY, MILLIONS WILL SEE BY TUESDAY AND A LOT WILL CHANGE THEIR VOTE.

    We must vote for Trump for our own national security, and the security of the people serving in the US military! Since it is established that Hillary’s recklessness got her devices hacked by 5 countries, she needs to be stopped! Hillary will devastate this country for her own gain! Who knows if her recklessness is not what caused the death of the 4 in Benghazi .

    I’m 70 years old and for the first time in my voting life, I am AFRAID of one of the candidates getting elected: Hillary Clinton. Let’s hope that Americans take a deep breath and make the SAFE decision: Donald Trump.

    We can hope for the best. Every election comes with surprises. A Trump landslide would be a surprise but it would be welcome.

    We need to remember polls have a way of being inaccurate. In this election that may be extremely likely as those polled lie about their choice because they don’t want to publicly be seen as supporting their candidate.

    Swing States…Its Up To You!
    Remember Trump in the primary, per MSM – Trump can’t make the 1237, ended up with 1400 odd!
    So Maybe, Just Maybe, WE have that same Chance on November 8th…to get OVER 270 Electoral Votes…
    Remember When Romney Lost…Lets get up on Nov. 9th morning with a Trump WIN…☆☆☆
    Swing States…Its Up To You!

    • JJ

      I pray we will!! Vote and beg others to vote for Trump if you can- family and friends.

      • Bob

        Both my wife and son participated in early voting, and both swore they were not voting for Trump (both going for Johnson). Following the latest e-mail scandal, both voted for Trump. Now, being from MD, it probably won’t matter too much, since this state is bluer than the night sky. However, it does bode well for the rest if my wife would vote for Trump.

        • JJ

          Thanks to both of them for voting for Trump! May God Bless!!!
