The Path to the Presidency

According to The Washington Post, on the eve of the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton has enough electoral votes to win the White House in their final Fix map, before voting even begins. Either candidate must get to 270 votes to win, but if Hillary Clinton wins all of the states that are traditionally Democratic or are leaning her way, she will have 275 votes and is guaranteed the win.

The path to the presidency is very clear and easy to navigate for Hillary Clinton. However, there is a small, almost minute chance, for Donald Trump. If he wins all of the states that are traditionally Republican or lean to the right, he will 215 votes. To win the presidency, he would have to win all of the toss-up states and take away a traditionally Democratic state from Hillary Clinton. There is a chance that it can be done, but that chance is very small. If he won all of the typical Republican states and all of the toss-ups, he would still be short seven votes in winning the electoral college.

Watching the election results come in this Tuesday will be very interesting, and I am excited to see who will be the next president of the United States of America.
