Clinton and Trump are tied in battleground states

WASHINGTON – Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump in key battleground states has collapsed.

The race in 13 combined swing states is now deadlocked with Clinton and Trump tied 42 percent – a one point slide for Clinton since last week and two-percentage point decline since Labor Day weekend, according to new CBS News Battleground Tracker polls.

The dead-heat survey was taken among 4,202 registered voters of 13 battleground states: North Carolina and Pennsylvania, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Michigan, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

    Landslide Trump.

    Does anyone want the school marm telling the bad terrorists that bombs are “inappropriate”.

    LAT, before the bombings, has Trump up by seven.

    She’s melting.

      Bombs? They are “intentional devices” now.

      If the bombers end up being illegals it will be a Trump landslide.

    Hillary’s going to be hard charging into the final stretch …. after her nap.

    Pay attention to how the polls are being reported the last two to three weeks.
    If they all agree that Trump is ahead by a few points, then that probably means he’s ahead by six.
    If however Trump is inexplicably and suddenly down by several points right before the election, then I say that means they are going to try to steal the election and they are preparing everyone for a Trump loss.
    In any event, I predict a high chance of having a violent aftermath this time around.

      “Second Amendment people”?

    Don’t expect the Media to report the Hillary’s new book has sold just over 2500 copies in it’s first week. Meanwhile she tours the TV and Media hot-spots prior to it hitting the Stores and yet just 2500+ buyers in 1 week.

    I smell another Hillary scam to get $$$$millions into her ” foundation” to draw from and avoid taxes since Obama and Comey would never take orders from the IRS to go after her for Charity fraud to run her Slush-fund while at the State dept while dealing with terrorists nations.

      Yes, the advance was almost certainly a thinly disguised donation. Still, that level of book sales must be ego-crushing.

    • BillyHW

      2500 is just what you order to give away to friends and family.

    There is a very real possibility that this ends up 269 vs 269 in the Electoral College, at which point it goes to the House, but not a straight vote, each state delegation has one vote. Trump will likely win in that scenario unless some douchebag elector changes his vote to Hillary and then there is a constitutional crisis and it goes to the Supreme Court, which has only 8 sitting justices currently so I don’t know how they can decide it if it’s 4-4.

    Hillary has the easiest path to 272 for victory. In order for Trump to win he will need to flip at least one Dem-leaning state, which will not be easy. The map still favours the Democrats.

    If Trump does really well he maxes out at 292.

      I’m seeing electoral college numbers all over the place. Who knows where they will end up at.
      The Trump 500 people are a bit mental, but I admire their passion.

      • BillyHW

        RealClearPolitics has a map that you can play with. My numbers are realistic.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    I don’t think Trump has given up on his home state of New York yet.

  • lolwut?

    Forget the polls.

    Hillary rally, 200 people max maybe 2-3 times a week.

    Trump fills stadiums and airport hangers 2-4 times PER DAY including weekends.

    How can this woman have any support at all? She is an incompetent, lying, sleazebag, a crook a traitor and a moron. On top of all that she looks like she may drop dead any second.
