In front of the decreasing polling numbers, and with less than three weeks available to catch up, Donald Trump remained optimistic on Friday, as he participated in the campaign for two essential battleground states. He declared that he honestly thinks they will win during a rally held in North Carolina before they went to the swing state Pennsylvania. He also showed three of the most recent polls that made him a winner in front of the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. She is having a campaign on Friday in the hot state of Ohio.
However, as everything is coming to an end, truth is that Trump is trying hard to catch up the handicap he gained in the polls. Clinton is leading in front of him with more than 6 points in all the country, varying from poll to poll. She has had a strong response from the public after the final debate of this campaign took place. Moreover, she also had some substantial cash advantage if you look at the figures that were released this week.
A look at the state-by-state map shows that Clinton is expected to win with 341 electoral votes, while Trump is forecast to have only 196. This happens mostly due to the significant lead Clinton has in the traditionally swing states, which is basically the element that decides the result of a presidential election. In most years, these states are Pennsylvania, Iowa, New Hampshire, Florida, Ohio and others.
Oddly enough, all states seem to be swing states this year. According to some recent polls, there were some tight races in Georgia, Utah, Arizona or Texas, which have been Republican states for a long time. This only adds to the reasons people think Trump is definitely going to lose this race for the presidential chair.
