Clinton vs. Trump
Copyrighted Image? DMCA

I got a call from a friend in Washington who knows more about political polling than anyone in America. He was almost breathless with excitement.

"It's gonna be a landslide," he said.

"In which direction?" I joked.

"Hillary's going to win in places we haven't won in years -- Georgia, Nevada, Arizona. She'll take the entire West, the whole East Coast. Trump is sinking like a stone."

"So do we get the Senate back?"

"You bet."

"Sixty votes?"

"No, but a nice majority."

"And the House?"

"We won't win it back, but Democrats will get 14 of the 30 they need. So still a Republican majority, but far weakened."

"And what about the states?"

He paused. "The states?"

"Will we take back the states?"

"No. The GOP will remain in control in most states."
