Clinton heavily favored to win Electoral College: poll

U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton speaks at a fundraiser in SeattleBy Maurice Tamman NEW YORK (Reuters) – After a brutal week for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, Democrat Hillary Clinton maintained a substantial projected advantage in the race to win the Electoral College and claim the U.S. presidency, according to the latest results from the Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project released on Saturday. If the election were held this week, the project estimates that Clinton’s odds of securing the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the presidency at more than 95 percent, and by a margin of 118 Electoral College votes. The results mirror other Electoral College projections, some of which estimate Clinton’s chance of winning at around 90 percent.
