Ahhhh yes. The poll map we've waited to see!!!

Mark Murray – Verified account ?@mmurraypolitics

NBC's final battleground map: Clinton 274, Trump 170, 94 in Tossup http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/2016-election-day/nbc-s-final-battleground-map-shows-clinton-edge-n678926

Ok I'm goingwith this map.
Will be interesting, after the dust clears, to compare this one against the final cut.

Seriously? The deep Red Dakotas, Kansas, in the "lean R" collumn ??

I believe this is a more realistic map than what we have been seeing.

Cool huh!

Signs of a game-changing groundswell of Latino support for Clinton


New data indicate massive increases in early voting among Latino voters in key states. And it is impacting election results where it matters.

In the aftermath of the 2012 election, Karl Rove took to the Wall Street Journal to warn Republicans that “more white votes alone” would not be enough to ensure future victories for the GOP.
It does not appear that they got the message.

Latino Decisions, the research firm that specializes in Latino political opinion and is known for especially reliable data due to bilingual interviews and large sample sizes, reports “heightened enthusiasm for voting in 2016 and record-high levels of support for Hillary Clinton.”

In 2016, Latino Decisions projects up to 3.5 million additional Latino voters — putting their turnout at close to 15 million.

In Florida, early voting among Latinos has increased by 129 percent so far from 2008. (According to the Clinton campaign, 44 percent more Latinos have voted so far than voted early in 2012.)

In Georgia, Latino early turnout has increased by 144 percent so far from 2012.

In North Carolina, early voting among Latinos has increased 75 percent so far from 2012.

The Latino population is smaller in North Carolina and Georgia than Florida, but given how close the race is in all three states, Latino turnout could be pivotal.

According to Latino Decisions, high Latino turnout bodes very well for Clinton:
Latino Decisions also projects that 79 percent of Latinos will vote for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, 18 percent for Republican nominee Donald Trump, and the remaining three percent voting for other candidates.

Record-breaking turnout combined with record-high levels of support for Clinton is already impacting election results:
Mrs. Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, told donors on a conference call Thursday [November 3] that the campaign expected to win Florida and North Carolina in large part because of Hispanic turnout.
In Nevada, a third diverse battleground state, Mr. Mook said he no longer saw a path for Mr. Trump to win there.
According to TargetSmart’s latest polling, Clinton is maintaining a 28 point advantage among Latinos in Florida, compared to Obama’s 21 point advantage in 2012.
Jon Ralston, Nevada’s preeminent election forecaster, says Democrats have built up an insurmountable lead in the state due in part to high Latino turnout in key precincts.

Karl Rove was right. More white votes alone will not ensure victory for the GOP. It looks like Latino voters are voting early to make sure of it.

On the lighter side: From Hillary's Horoscope November 2016

November 01, 2016 - November 30, 2016

There is a change of scene and of emphasis after November 9th, and it seems that you have more space and freedom after an intense and trying time mentally and psychologically, which has brought many swings of mood and perhaps some extreme behavior. The rest of November is characterized by a need to spend more time at home or with the friends and colleagues you feel most comfortable with.
There is a sense of relief that the pressure is off, and you can look forward to a happy time out of the public eye.

A little R&R may be enjoyed.
