If he doesn't win Virginia or Colorado, he can still win by taking Pennsylvania (won by 4.38%, 20 electoral votes) instead. Strictly speaking, he just needs to win two states, including California or New York, though both of these are considered safe for Clinton.

Got this on my first four guesses. Winning in Florida should be a breeze for Trump. I hear that he's super popular with all the latinos in Miami.

Interesting just how much the battlegrounds have shifted. All election season, Virginia and Colorado have been considered safe for Clinton (I guess we'll see though), whereas states like Michigan and Pennsylvania have been his (Trump's) focus, since the polling has been much closer there. I suppose we'll see tomorrow.

Never felt so simultaneously proud to be a Virginian and ashamed to be an American before 2016...
