Recent polls I'm sure we're all aware of, show Trump neck and neck, just behind, or just ahead of Hillary Clinton, in some of the key battleground states.
As a Clinton supporter this doesn't worry me very much as I still think she'll win with relative ease.

This is my prediction for how the electoral map will look 2016 Presidential Election Interactive Map
It's actually somewhat of a worst case because I think Clinton could win Virginia Ohio and even Florida

your thoughts?

I think you've got the map almost right. With one exception, I think PA will go Trump and that will make Trump the winner. Pin heads will explode.

It's certainly possible polls are inconclusive about who's ahead there but it's a traditionally left leaning state and I think Trump would have a hard time winning it

way too far away for any real idea

there are going to be more states in play than people think though

not only the ones everyone knows, but a few surprises on both sides of the aisle

this election is going to throw the book out the window....in more ways than one

The bolded is my impression as well. I see the general going much as the primary did - pundits using how it's always been being proven wrong at every turn.

I think they're all underestimating Hillary...especially when she starts informing half the voting public - women - just how misogynistic Trump is...in Trump's own words.

Polls don't really shape up into anything especially meaningful until after July.

I agree that Hillary has some stones to throw. Some valid, some are just hyperbole. But she is throwing those stones from a glass house. I expect the barbs will go back and forth with great ferocity. When people are throwing trash at each other, neither one can claim the high ground or an advantage.
