Trump Is Trailing Clinton In Most Critical Swing States
The chart above shows the average of the latest polls in each of the swing states (from RealClearPolitics).
Most pundits don't see a path to the White House for Donald Trump unless he wins all seven of these swing states (and I agree). But Trump is currently trailing Hillary Clinton in six of the seven states -- Nevada (-1.5), New Hampshire (-3.6), Florida (-2.9), Ohio (-1.6), North Carolina (-2.9), and Pennsylvania (-8.3). The only state where he has a leading poll average is Iowa (+3.7).
The last two weeks have been brutal for the Trump campaign, and time is starting to run out -- with only about three weeks left before election day (and early voting already happening in some states).
