For the first time ever an electoral college projection has Trump in the lead, and it is Five Thirty Eight’s Nate Silver.
This will be major news. And just as the Democratic convention starts. Every time Clinton’s name is mentioned, the is huge booing. It has got so bad Bernie Sanders has had to text all the delegates asking them to stop booing speakers when they mention Clinton’s name.
The projection has Trump 281 and Clinton 257. Trump is now rated 56% likely to win.
They now have Trump ahead in Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Iowa, Nevada and Georgia.
