State of the Race: 14 Days To Go


We no longer need to look at polls to tell us about Democratic enthusiasm...nor do we need to take the Clinton campaign's word that their ground operation is superior to Trump's. Early voting is well underway in many states and the evidence is right before our eyes that the big blue wave is already here.

In Florida:

In North Carolina:

In Nevada:

In Ohio:
Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign already is declaring victory in Ohio – or, at least, victory in the Buckeye State's first week of early voting.

"The work is paying off," Clinton's Ohio director, Chris Wyant, writes in a state-of-the-race memo obtained Thursday by cleveland.com. "Hillary won the first days of early voting."

Statewide, requests for absentee ballots are down compared to this point in time during the 2012 election, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted said this week. But Wyant, in his memo, expresses confidence that a high number of those requests are coming from five traditionally Democratic counties that are expected to favor Clinton over Republican Donald Trump this fall.

"All five" – Cuyahoga, Franklin, Hamilton, Montgomery and Summit counties – "are likely to go for Hillary Clinton by similar – or in the cases of Franklin and Hamilton Counties, where in person turnout is currently a larger percentage of the state than it was in 2012 – larger margins than President Barack Obama's results" from his 2012 Ohio win, Wyant writes.

In Arizona:

In Wisconsin:

And finally, in Texas:

We can't let up or be complacent until this thing is done in two weeks, but so far the evidence is unmistakable and inspiring. Democrats are turning out like never before to elect Hillary Clinton the next President of the United States.

But that's not all:
Next stop: a Democratic House of Representatives. Let's do this!
