Miniscule Margin

electionAssuming Trump wins MI where he’s ahead, and Clinton wins NH where she’s ahead, the final electoral college tally will be 306 to 232 for Trump. The three states Clinton lost where she was closest to winning were Michigan, with 49.87% of the vote, Wisconsin, with 49.51%, and Pennsylvania, with 49.41%. Had she received just 107,334 votes carefully sprinkled across those states, she would be president with 278 electoral votes.
