A 2016 Electoral Projection From Nate Silver
The image above is from a twitter by Nate Silver (one of this country's most respected poll analysts and statisticians). It shows his prediction for the 2016 election -- assuming the candidates are Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, and the election was held right now. His projection is that Hillary Clinton would beat Trump by a whopping 210 electoral college votes.
I've been hearing a lot lately from Trump and Sanders (and their supporters) about how much more popular they are than Hillary Clinton. That's just nonsense. Clinton will not only win the Democratic nomination, but she will blow-out Trump (or Cruz) in November.
