Longtime political analyst Larry Sabato is predicting an electoral college blowout for Hillary Clinton in a November general election matchup with current GOP front-runner Donald Trump.

In the University of Virginia political science professor's "Crystal Ball" prediction, the Democratic presidential front-runner beats Trump 347-191.

"Here at the Crystal Ball, we are going to cling to one central fact about presidential elections: The only thing that matters is accumulating a majority of 270 votes in the Electoral College," Sabato writes.

Sabato's first map shows a close, competitive race in a matchup with a generic Democrat versus Republican matchup.

Map two is shows Republicans "in a deep hole" when the contestants are Clinton and Trump.

Although a Clinton-Trump matchup could be an "electoral embarrassment" for the GOP, Sabato writes that because of the political polarization in the country, Clinton would likely take less than 55 percent of the two-party vote.
