    . . . most likely, so says 538. The question is how many: 50 to 53?

    Latino support for Clinton set to hit record high for a presidential candidate — and for Trump, a new low

    Not only are Latino voters set for record turnout this election, but a new poll Sunday shows Latino support for Donald Trump may be lower than for any Republican presidential candidate in more than 30 years.

    Hillary Clinton has support from 76% of the Latino electorate, according to the Noticias Telemundo/Latino Decisions /NALEO Educational Fund poll.

    That's a higher level of support than President Obama won in both of his elections. Latino Decisions' survey showed 75% of Latinos backed Obama in 2012. Exit polling put his support at 71%.

    Just 14% of Latino voters backed Trump, the survey found, That's about half of Mitt Romney's 27% showing with Latinos and fewer than the GOP's low-point when Bob Dole won 21% of the Latino vote in 1996.

    Polling in California found similar results, according to the final statewide USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times survey. Clinton was winning 73% of Latino registered voters compared with 17% for Trump in a two-way match up, the poll found.

    Exit data compiled by the Pew Hispanic Center shows no Republican candidate faring worse with Latinos in presidential elections dating to 1980.

    Republicans approached this election year hoping to improve their standing with Latinos, a growing part of the electorate. But instead, their candidate seems to have had the opposite effect.

    U.S. voters want leader to end advantage of rich and powerful
    Tue Nov 8, 2016 | Americans who had cast their votes for the next president early on Tuesday appeared to be worried about the direction of the country, and were looking for a "strong leader who can take the country back from the rich and powerful," according to an early reading from the Reuters/Ipsos national Election Day poll.

    51 to 47 for the (R)s and 2 still being counted. Looks like (R)s lead in both those so far.

    Fakey fails again.

    Looks like Jake was wrong again. The Senate stays red.

    At what percentage did Silver put the odds of Hildabeest winning the election?

    Why should he have any credibility now?

    Silver will always have more cred than you is the point here, Murica.

    My credibility isn't the issue here, sport.

    Silver didn't even change his odds to 55% Trump until after it was clearly evident that he was going to win. He's just another in a long line of DNC hacks.
