Donald-Trump-Hillary-Clinton
The latest polls have Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton by 15 points.
No, not a Fox News poll.
This is from Nate Silver, the FiveThirtyEight numbers wizard who correctly called both the 2008 and 2012 elections. He says if the race were held today, Trump would win the swing states of Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, Iowa, Nevada, and New Hampshire, thereby assuring an easy victory.
Some will say this is just an inevitable boost in the numbers coming as it does right after the Republican National Convention. But need I remind you that theconvention was chaos?

And don’t forget Trump’s own acceptance speech. They’re coming to get you and only I can save you! Trump 2016!
