The Washington Post says Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has no chance of an electoral-college win.
"It is nonexistent," Post politics reporter Stuart Rothenberg writes in Tuesday's edition.
"Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, once part of the Trump scenario, have never been 'in play,' and he is not competitive in states Obama won only narrowly in 2012, such as Virginia and Colorado.
"Trump is more likely to lose North Carolina than win it, which would put him under 200 electoral votes."
It takes 270 electoral votes to win the 2016 presidential election.
Rothenberg says the "writing has been on the wall" for months.
"The public's mood certainly offered Trump an opportunity to make the election about Clinton and the president, and a serious Republican nominee could have taken advantage of the desire for change and Clinton's baggage to win the race," he writes.
"But Donald Trump was always the worst messenger possible for delivering that message … Trump is and has been a disaster as a presidential nominee, and that will not change in the campaign's final days."
