The battle continues for the U.S presidential elections. The two major presidential aspirants DONALD TRUMP and HILARY CLINTON. We will follow the action live and bring to you the latest updates.
According to CNN, There are very few things that the Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton campaigns agree on these days, but one point of total agreement is that this race has tightened over the last 10-14 days. That tightening is reflected in our new CNN “Road to 270” map.
The latest snapshot of the Electoral College map heading into the final days is a little more favorable to Trump, but Clinton still holds a clear advantage.
Just yesterday, Beyonce and Jay-Z officially endorsed Hillary Clinton by performing at her rally and Donald Trump was not happy about it. During his own rally in Reno, Nevada Trump said QUOTE – “…we didn’t bring any so-called stars along ― we didn’t need them. The reason Hillary has to do that is, nobody comes for her. She can’t fill a room. That’s almost like a form of cheating, right?” He also made a point to reference Jay and B’s support for Hillary during his rally in Pennsylvania saying QUOTE – “I didn’t have to bring J.Lo or Jay Z. I am here all by myself. Just me. No guitar, no piano, no nothing.”
Granted Hillary has received celebrity endorsements from a number of stars including Beyonce , Jay-Z, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Kerry Washington, Lebron James, Demi Lovato, Lena Dunham, Chloë Grace Moretz, Ne-Yo, Bon Jovi, JLO, Stevie Wonder, and Miley Cyrus while Trump has been endorsed by Aaron Carter, Stacey Dash, and Scott Baio. During Hillary’s rally, Jay-Z made a point about Trump saying QUOTE – “This other guy – I don’t have any ill will towards him. But his conversation is divisive and that’s not an evolved soul to me. So he cannot be my president, he cannot be out president. Once you divide us you weaken us. We’re stronger together.”
Also, Clinton’s electoral vote total is at 268 as and when you add up all the states that are solidly or leaning in her direction and Donald Trump’s is 204 when you combine all the states that are solidly or leaning in his direction. That leaves six remaining battleground contests worth a total of 66 electoral votes in Arizona, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and the second congressional district in and around Omaha, Nebraska.
