This is how Donald Trump can win 1


President Donald Trump remains, without question, the underdog going into today’s election. However, there is a somewhat plausible electoral map that can gets him to 270 electoral votes and a second term. In his latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains the math that Trump needs for a win.

      CNN thanks for asking. I have to say i am loving it ! Looks like Trump will pull out another victory. Arizona is starting to go red, i would say you were counting your chickens to early again, just like in 2016. i see a clear path to 270 for Trump. only time will tell but it’s not looking good for Biden. have a great day.

    • Trump is a “longshot”? CNN is tabloid-quality news for low-IQ leftists.

    Hello everyone

      @Lisa Elissa Trump fixed our economy, got rid of a lot of criminals, protecting our forests from forest fires, Takes care of Mexican immigrants that need a job and home, making more jobs for people can make a living, never takes donations or checks from anyone only 1 dollar, Trumps is the opposite of greedy, Trump keeps our country safe from criminals and terrorists. That’s some stuff Trump did but there’s more just go on real news and do real research. Joe Biden in 47 years has been a racist corrupted greedy politician. When Obama was president Joe Biden did nothing and let people die during swine flu, keeps Mexicans in cages, Takes every single peace of pennie he sees. Joe Biden’s plan to become president is to act like a great caring person while his Democrats and “the media” join Joe Biden’s side to brainwash everyone for sleepy Joe to win, and if you are wondering why People hate Trump so much its because they get brainwashed from ” the media ” and “the media” is framing Trump because he never did what any other president has did in a very long time.

    • @Scottish Santa I’m not wondering. I listen to Trump’s words. P.S. The lights are going out on his presidency as we speak. Good riddance.

    • @Bill the Butcher More like TurdNation

    • @Mentos 93 Then just don’t live at all

  4. CNN: Biden up 20 pts in national poll, no way Trump wins

    CNN on Nov 3rd: Here’s how Trump can win

    Giving me more election anxiety.

    and THAT

    is the point.

  6. lol, just like the last time, according to cnn Trump has no chance of winning.

    • @Normal Memer you are a dummy trump isn’t racist and he supports gay marriage bring me your evidence.

    • @WonderFul i found out that trump actually is worse for transgender people who are a part of lgbtq and i found out that there is something called qualified imunity which protects goverment officials and police from lawsuits which this was what Black Lives Matter protested to end the qualified imunity and if Biden wins this qualified imunity can dissapier

    • @Mr Fluffles are you stupid? Its because some states take longer to count votes than other states

    • @Desi Boi Did you even watch election night?You completely missed the point of what I said. It has nothing to do with “it takes longer to count votes.” There were states that were called before votes were even at 10% in. (I.E. California, Oregon, Washington, and half of the states in the north east) Are you sure you have any right to ask if anyone is stupid?

    • @Mr Fluffles whatever you say big boy. Just don’t be salty when Biden wins.

  7. “Philadelphia in the east, Pittsburgh in the west, and Alabama in the middle.”

    I’ll bet money this video is gonna get deleted when trump wins 😂

  9. I want to see some CNN tears 😭

  10. If you think about it. CNN won’t have much content if Trump loses.

  11. Why do I feel like this man is probably about to meltdown?

  12. CNN is about to learn yet again, how much they mean to America.

      @Neil Angus lol you fall for every single narrative Trump tries to convince people of don’t ya… also Trump single handedly ended WW2

      @Neil Angus

      IDK man, Navada seems blue and as of right now its the lynchpin of the election.

    • @Deez Nuts How can this be possible Biden be winning if Trump has more Subscribers than Biden? Of course they are cheating on the votes plus on google it was Trump is Republican and said Biden is Democrat people vote Republican. Republican is red democrat is Blue . (I’m a Trump Supporter plus, I’m a kid.)

    • @KyoKyoDisaster! ha ha ha Trump supporters know they are cheating on the votes plus, I have proof check Trump’s and Burdens Amount of subscribers and u see Trump has more. That’s how I know they are cheating on the votes. Proof Trump is Good and isn’t Democrat. Search up on google Trump vs Biden it says Biden is Democrat and Trump is Republican. I recognized a red state switched to a blue state. Learn up ur smartness I’m a kid but, I know this.

    • @Yt girl Check out” Project Veritas” on YT….

  13. Little did CNN know that this would actually be their most accurate model

  14. Cnn: News item btw: Trump wins. And next on CCP… I mean CNN, Carnivorous Pandemic.

    • Trump will lose and we will learn all about the millions that came through his HIDDEN Chinese Bank Account while he was in the Oval Office. All the MAGA Campaign Contributions are probably over there.

  15. This video shows all that is wrong with CNN.

  16. No, underdogs are those who have to beat the champions. Undderdogs are those who are most likely perceived as losers. BIDEN is the underdog.

  17. Pretty over for Biden, yeh right Biden is going to win Florida

  18. This did not age well…

  19. There is more than a 5% chance of death everyday I leave home and I don’t cower are the thought.

    This victim fear culture stuff is insanity

  20. This is how Donald trump wins the medias vote…be a democrat
