Pollsters on Fox unleash brutal truth: Trump win ‘would take a comeback of historic proportions’

Published

The road to 270 is not looking good for Republican nominee Donald Trump. On Tuesday, RealClearPolitics reporter Caitlin Huey-Burns and Washington Post writer Aaron Blake appeared on Fox News to discuss Trump’s Election Day prospects.

Panelists discussed voter support in swing states like Florida, Arizona, and Georgia, which have all been determined “toss-up” states this year.

Huey-Burns said, “The fact that Arizona is a toss-up race at this point really speaks to the uphill battle that Donald Trump will have getting to 270.”

She continued, “If you look at the electoral map as it stands, Hillary Clinton has already reached that threshold. And when you add in the states in which she is leading, she already hits well over 270.”

“The problem with Donald Trump right now,” Huey-Burns says, “is that he is struggling to get Republicans on board, struggling to win Republican-leaning states. Utah has also been competitive.”

According to Fox’s figures and their 2016 Election scorecard, Clinton’s electoral numbers are at 307, Trump’s at 174, with 57 electoral votes that are up for grabs in battleground states like Arizona, Utah, Iowa, Ohio, and North Carolina.

Blake says, “The mere fact that we’re talking about states like Arizona and Georgia being close to toss-ups, the fact that Texas is somewhat close — if he loses any of those states, this race is over. It’s already done.”

Can the Republican nominee bring up his numbers ahead of Election Day? With just two weeks left in the race for the White House, Huey-Burns says, Trump winning “would take a comeback of historic proportions.”

One day after admitting on Fox News that he was working hand-in-hand with the White House on impeachment tactics, McConnell was very blunt about his motivations when asked about his admission.

In a clip shared by MSNBC, the Senate leader was pressed about his plans.

"You told Sean Hannity last night you were coordinating with the White House when it comes to impeachment. Why is that appropriate?" McConnell was asked.

As the Senate braces for the expected impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, there is a battle going on between the White House and Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnel (R-KY) over tactics -- specifically a desire by the president to have an extended trial that will include witnesses he wants to see testify.

According to a report in the New York Times, Trump would like to see former Vice President Joe Bidens' son Hunter called to testify along with the whistleblower whose report led to the impeachment inquiry. Additionally, the president wants to House Intelligence Committee chair Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to take the stand.

"Another crucial test was successfully conducted at the Sohae Satellite Launching Ground from 22:41 to 22:48 on December 13," a spokesman for the North's National Academy of Defence Science said in a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency.
