    Trump's easiest path to victory

    Trump needs 270 electoral college votes to win a second term. So far as I can determine, all current projections are that Biden will win, possibly by a landslide. I've taken a look at the current polls, and as things stand now, Trump can obtain exactly 270 votes if he wins all the following states and districts. I give the latest poll for each state and district. All states not on this list are currently solidly in either the Biden or Trump camp, so winning all of the following would seem to be Trump's most favourable route to victory.

    +7 Biden - Nebraska District 2
    +7 Biden - Wisconsin
    +7 Biden - Florida
    +4 Biden - Arizona
    +3 Biden - North Carolina
    +1 Biden - Texas
    +1 Biden - Georgia

    +0 TIE - Ohio
    +1 Trump - Iowa
    +1 Trump - Maine District 2

    Yay, yet ANOTHER OMBT!

    We should have a separate OMBT Forum!

    He does seem to have a tough road ahead of him.

    A while ago, someone (a conservative at the other forum IIRC) said they thought Trump didn't want to win. I disagreed, but I'm slowly coming around. He figuratively gave black America the finger by not paying his respects to Lewis. I'm not terribly outraged by it, but I'll bet it angered some of the people he's told "what have you got to lose?".

    These poll numbers may be driving him towards that lack of enthusiasm...

    Sleepy Joe may be helping out Trump as we speak - he's taking questions from reporters after making a lackluster speech.

    I'll believe Trump has lost when he's officially lost. Until then I expect another four year of him.

    Isn't there a middle-ground?

    As in "I don't know what to expect"?

    For myself, I give Biden/Trump 60/40 in this next election. Biden's got the edge, but Trump might still pull it off...

    If the Democrats continue excusing and enabling anarchy, things could change quickly. And there may be a lot of us who don't talk to pollsters, and are tired of the rush of the left to the EXTREME left.
