As the elections for 2016 draw closer, one thing is for certain. The Republicans are going to have a huge uphill climb if they want to make it to the White House. Many early polls indicate that the race might be already over before it has begun, with the Democratic nominee already projected as holding the needed electoral votes to win. Throughout the country there will certainly be some states that flip-flop on what was expected, and big surprises are certainly in store for the candidates. The one certain thing, however, is that there are already 10 states in which Republicans will definitely lose the 2016 presidential elections. That is going to make the trip to the White House a walk in the park, similar to the way in which the election for President Obama was over before it began.
In the upcoming 2016 Presidential election, it is already a foregone conclusion which way the state of Michigan will be voting. Take a close look at the last three elections, in which the Democrats have coasted to victory and snatched up the 16 electoral votes up for grabs. This state is an easy victory for the Democrats, putting the pressure on Republicans to find other states in which to gain some momentum.
Traditionally, Ohio is one of those toss-up states, but President Obama enjoyed a victory here in both his runs for office. The last time that a Republican won the state, it was by the smallest of margins at 50.8% of the vote. Ohio Republicans have been polled at voting 23% for Trump, 21% this past August. Carson is getting 18%, 13% for Kasich, 11% for Cruz, 7% for Rubio and 4% for Bush. Among Republicans, 29% say they would definitely not support Donald Trump. This could be a huge problem, compared to Clinton leading the Democratic field with 40%.
With a whopping 55 electoral votes, this is going to be one of those mountains the Republicans are going to have difficulties climbing. In six consecutive elections, the state of California has gone the way of the Democrats. The Democrats can count on two big prizes, the state of California’s 55 votes and the state of New York’s 29 votes.
