Cook Political Report Keeps PA at “Leans Democratic”

Cook Chart 5-27-16A lot has changed since the Cook Political Report issued their last electoral college map projection on May 4th.

Donald Trump has wrapped up the GOP nomination and drawn even with Hillary Clinton in national polls.

Nonetheless, Cook is not moving many states. In fact, they’re only moving one state. Michigan has gone from “Likely Democratic” to “Lean Democratic”.

Pennsylvania did not change at all with the commonwealth staying in the “Lean Democratic” column.

As a result, the Democrats start with 304 electoral votes against the GOP’s 190 with 44 toss-up electoral votes. It takes 270 electoral votes to win the presidency.

The full breakdown is included below:

  1. Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints for first-time blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

  2. Oh, yes, I saw that report about Gucimer. It was by the same guy who reported that Putin is going to re-animate Vince Foster’s corpse so he can tell us all how the Clintons secretly had him killed. Riveting stuff.

  3. Dear Mr. I’d rather be fishing – It’s not your Comrade Vlad who hacked the email, but rather the hacking legend Gucimer. Gucimer only exploited the unsecured server that the doofus Hillary setup that allowed him to gain full access to top secret State department emails. Gucimer, forwarded the emails to Russian intelligence and have been leaked already in part on the web. The bulk of the email are expected to be dumped later this Spring or Summer and will include the deleted emails that Hillary wiped from her server in order to cover her tracks. This is extremely important to have these exposed to show the felonious and criminal acts she hid by deleting and wiping her server. It’s not Vlad who is saving the country nor Trump. It is exposing a criminal felon named Hillary Clinton.

  4. @Tim- Why do Conservatives pleasure themselves to the thought of Putin? Putin and Russia are going to sweep in and hand Trump the election and save us… Riiiiiiight

  5. Seniors will turn the election to Democrats since the PA General Assembly continues to lay the burden of school and property taxes on them. The PA Republicans are acting like tea party members of Congress.

  6. It’s only long way to go until November. It’s only May. Wait until Russia releases Hillary’s acked State department e-mails, then you will see the fur fly! She will be heading for the fallout shelter with her millions in bribe money in tow. Perhaps she’s looking at countries without extradition treaties with the US right now. She is a felon in my opinion. She is unfit to be the President in my opinion. The fur will fly. Just wait. Trump will be the next President. It’s in the Bible.[put that in to really offend the godless libs!]
