Columbus Dispatch: Clinton 48, Trump 47 in Ohio [View all]

Ground game is gonna win this....


The poll results indicate that if the Clinton campaign can get young and minority voters to the polls, she almost certainly will win. And a victory in Ohio would almost certainly end Trump’s hopes for the presidency.

On the other hand, if the Trump team does a better job at getting its supporters to cast a ballot, especially older whites, he probably wins — and maintains a narrow path to prevailing nationwide. The GOP nominee holds a double-digit lead among white males, the poll found.


Clintons ground game is way way better than Trumps which is non existent, if this comes down to ground game, she wins.
