A new report argues Donald Trump will not win the presidential election because of his inability to turn blue states red in November.
The Washington Post examines polling data and concludes that Trump's promise to win states that typically vote Democrat — New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Oregon, for example — seems likely to fail. That means Hillary Clinton could cruise to victory.
The Post predicts Clinton's triumph will be akin to President Barack Obama's wins in 2008 and 2012, which were by comfortable margins, but were not blowouts.
Other blue states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, Colorado, and Virginia all seem to be trending toward Clinton, which would deal a huge blow to Trump's presidential aspirations.
The latest RealClear Politics roundup of polls shows Clinton has a strong lead in national polling and in several battleground states that could prove to be the difference.
The Post examines those numbers and finds that Clinton appears to have the election locked up — assuming nothing changes between now and election day.
A new NBC News/Survey Monkey poll, meanwhile, shows Clinton with a slim 6-point lead over Trump. She had an 8-point advantage over the real estate mogul in the same poll last week.
With the two other presidential candidates, Libertarian Gary Johnson and Jill Stein of the Green Party, added to the mix, Clinton's lead over Trump is just 4 points.
