How will the US presidential election process work?


Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton has a small lead nationally heading into Election Day, according to two new polls.

The other issue is that Clinton's support doesn't come as close to 50 percent as President Obama's four years ago.

But Trump maintains a 44 percent to 40 percent edge over Clinton on which candidate is more honest and trustworthy, though that result is down from an eight-point edge last week after the FBI announced the discovery of additional emails that might be relevant to from their investigation of her use of a private server while secretary of state.

Donald Trump is promising to take his campaign into traditional Democratic territory as a sign that he's not giving up on appealing to people outside the Republican Party.

"I never thought at the beginning of the year that this was going to be a Republican year, but it appears to me that this is going to be a Republican year", said former Republican Gov. Tommy Thompson. "Liberals, Hillary supporters, didn't believe it", he told CNBC. He does, however, think they are wrong to support the candidate, but does not think they're inherently bad people.

Mr Trump was unruffled and he returned to finish his speech after a few minutes, although his son retweeted a message implying it was an "assassination attempt".

Clinton also will be joined in New Hampshire by Khizr Khan, a Muslim American and Gold Star father whose indictment of Trump at the Democratic National Convention sparked a Trump counter-attack that critics called anti-American.

A 3-point lead is not safe enough, in Silver's model.

"Let's vote for the future!" she added urging those who had already cast their ballots to help get their friends to the polls. Trump has the narrowest of leads - up one point in OH (46%-45%), and tied in Florida (45%-45%).

These aren't the only possible paths to victory for Trump.

A Fox News national poll released Friday shows Clinton leading Trump by 2 percentage points, 45-to-43 percent, a sign that the race has gotten tighter in the closing weeks and days.

Ms Clinton must win OH to keep Mr Trump out of office it seems. The development is seen as particularly threatening for Clinton in states like Michigan, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire that don't offer early voting. "It would grind government to a halt, of course, this is what we have right now under Obama".

Trump is boosting his support throughout the Midwestern states such as MI and Wisconsin by appealing to blue collar voters who are disillusioned with the political status quo in Washington.

The Presidential race between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump has nearly reached the finish line. If Trump can pick up on his record number of first-time primary voters to get 10 percent of the 65 million to vote for him Tuesday, he gets 6.5 million more votes.

"Basically, less educated or high school-educated whites are going to Trump", Brooks told the Public Broadcasting Service. She trails non-college educated whites by 4 percent. "Sometimes, you get the sense that the campaign barely matters".

Clinton is making only two campaign stops Sunday - in OH and New Hampshire - but is again relying on celebrities to energize voters.

There are still a couple of factors working in Clinton's favour.

Other candidates running for the presidency include Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party, the Green Party's Jill Stein and conservative independent Evan McMullin.
