26. I believe that most of the polling simply looks at the raw numbers

 

of who prefers which candidate, as if the president were elected by popular vote (keeping in mind, of coursed, that no one bothers to count the unpopular votes).

While it will never be a good idea to think the election is in the bag, I honestly think in the end it won't even be close in the popular vote.
