Latest Poll Averages In Battleground States Favor Clinton
The chart shows the average of the latest polls in 13 battleground states from RealClearPolitics. Ten of those states were expected to be close, but another three has been added to the list (Arizona, Georgia, Texas) because they are no longer a sure thing for the Republican nominee.
For Donald Trump to have much chance to win the White House, he needs to carry most (if not all) of these states, but that isn't happening. Currently, Clinton leads in 9 of the thirteen states, while Trump leads in the other four. Trump has a lot of ground to make up in the next 17 days.
