The mainstream media has spent the last few months making it look like Donald Trump has no shot of beating Hillary Clinton in this election. That’s why it came as a shock to many yesterday, when the Fox News Editorial Scorecard found that key states are shifting in Trump’s direction after the FBI reopened their investigation into Clinton.
The Fox News Decision Team announced changes to the scoreboard yesterday afternoon, revealing the following changes based on recent polls:
- New Hampshire moves from “lean Democrat” to “toss-up”
- Ohio moves from “toss-up” to “lean Republican”
- Indiana moves from “lean Republican” to “solid Republican”
- Missouri moves from “lean Republican” to “solid Republican”
Though Clinton still has the advantage over Trump in the race, her lead is shrinking exponentially.
If Clinton is able to win all 15 states that are either leaning toward or are solidly Democrat, she’ll have 283 electoral votes, which is more than the 270 she needs to win. If Trump wins all the states that are either leaning toward or are solidly GOP, he would still fall short with 192 electoral votes. However, if he wins the toss-up states, he would end up just 15 votes short of 270.
If Trump is able to get one more win in the crucial states of North Carolina, Michigan or Pennsylvania, he may be able to win the presidency.
