When Hillary's "solid" and "lean" state add up to 267 electoral votes (out of the 270 to win) and you have to throw in her "toss up" states to get to her grand total of only 287 electoral states, that's not very promising.

Though it is marginally better than Trump who needs his 86 "toss up" states votes to get to his 251 electoral vote total.

That's why Nate Silver is currently giving Hillary a 59.3% chance of winning instead of the 89.3% chance he was giving her right after the Democratic convention.

Is anyone happy with Donald Trump having a 2 in 5 chance of living in the White House? I'm certainly not.
