    It is all going to depend on what happens in the next six weeks, how much lying is believed by the unwashed masses, what new scandals get exposed, how much brainwashing by the ALPHABET Lame Stream Media is adsorbed, and how much cheating the Democrats are able to get away with during the actual vote.

      It was always going to come down to the last 6-8 weeks and a handful of States.

        Don’t look now: Donald Trump has all the momentum in the 2016 race

        By Chris Cillizza The Fix September 14

        Something very interesting has happened over the past two weeks in the presidential campaign: Donald Trump has seized the momentum from Hillary Clinton and is climbing back into contention in both national and key swing state polling.

        New polls released over the past 24 hours confirm this momentum. In Ohio, Trump leads Clinton by five points in a new Bloomberg Politics poll and a similar five in a CNN poll. In Florida, Trump has a three-point lead on Clinton. In Nevada, Trump has a two-point edge, according to a Monmouth University survey. And in the latest weekly tracking poll from NBC and Survey Monkey...

          The cool thing about sandbagging, is that in the public's eye, he can kick her @$$ just by not being an idiot.
          If the debate goes like the recent semi-debate/town hall (and the primary debates), then he will indeed perform like an offensive idiot. However, the following days will then produce polls showing that the majority of viewers thought he won/performed better than his opponent/s.

          Performing like an idiot doesn't seem to hurt him at all.

            Not performing like an idiot will make him appear to be a genius.

              Worse, if Hillary gets pissed and starts shouting and lecturing him or utters another "What difference does it make?" or "Basket of deplorables" statement, she's finished.
              That isn't being sexist... It's being pragmatic based on history.

              The public won't like either lecturing the other but only Hillary is likely to do it. It's that arrogance of "I'm really smart and you're an idiot" that comes from the Left that will do her in.

                  That actually covers it pretty well, as far as I am concerned.

                    Today's RCP map shows that if the election were held today, the result would be:

                    Clinton: 272 electoral college votes
                    Trump: 266 electoral college votes.

                        If the current RCP 'no toss ups' map were to be repeated on election day with the exception of Trump taking Delaware's 3 electoral college votes from Clinton, then the result would be:

                        Clinton: 269 votes
                        Trump: 269 votes.

                        Nobody gets 270. Nobody wins. That would be most interesting.

                        What would happen next? The House decides? Could they choose someone other than those two? Who would they choose?

                              The House decides. Each State's delegation gets 1 vote.

                              The Senate would decide the VP by a similar process.
                              What happens if no presidential candidate gets 270 Electoral votes?

                              If no candidate receives a majority of Electoral votes, the House of Representatives elects the President from the 3 Presidential candidates who received the most Electoral votes. Each state delegation has one vote. The Senate would elect the Vice President from the 2 Vice Presidential candidates with the most Electoral votes. Each Senator would cast one vote for Vice President. If the House of Representatives fails to elect a President by Inauguration Day, the Vice-President Elect serves as acting President until the deadlock is resolved in the House.
