I'm looking for (depending on the breaks)... 49%-ish Hillary to 42%-ish Il Blowfish.

Yeah, I know that's closer than people would like to think, but, it's not over until the last vote has been cast and there are a bunch of people out there who will grit their teeth and throw their vote to anybody other than who they've been brainwashed to dislike for years, even though every fiber of their better sense is screaming directly into their dull brain stem that it is a yuuuge mistake. They will FU, bigly.

Reduced somewhat from a "landslide" as of late HRC is spending some of her hard earned political capital to bring in the Senate, too.

My belief is everything tends to go back to the beginning. That range was conventional wisdom midway between the conventions and the first debate. When I looked at the demographic splits at that point, they were logical.
