Skip to comments.Donald Trump is facing the prospect of a landslide loss

(CNN)A half dozen new swing-state polls released Thursday morning suggest that not only would President Donald Trump lose if the election were held today, he would lose in a landslide.
The surveys, conducted by The New York Times and Siena College, show Trump trailing former Vice President Joe Biden by double digits in Michigan (Biden +11), Wisconsin (Biden +11) and Pennsylvania (Biden+ 10) and by mid-single digits in North Carolina (Biden +9), Arizona (Biden +7) and Florida (Biden +6).
Trump won every one of those states in the 2016 election. Switch them from red to blue and you can quickly see just how bad hings look for Trump at the moment.
And, thanks to CNN's handy dandy "Road to 270" interactive electoral maps, we can do just that! Give Biden those six states -- Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Arizona and Florida -- and keep the rest of the 2020 map just as it was in 2016, and the Democratic nominee has 333 electoral votes to just 205 for Trump. That would be a larger Electoral College margin than President Barack Obama won with in his 2012 reelection.
But even that doesn't capture how dark things could get for Trump. Consider: * A Quinnipiac University poll in Ohio released Wednesday showed Biden at 46% to Trump's 45%. (A Fox News poll released in early June showed Biden at 47% to Trump's 45%). If Ohio went to Biden, he would be at 351 electoral votes. * A Des Moines Register poll earlier this month put Trump at 44% and Biden at 43% in Iowa. Give Biden Iowa and he's at 357 electoral votes.

I read this article four years ago.
He should check his 2016 comments.
This is so funny and HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!
Dems, are you ready to have a repeat of 2016?
Yeah cause most Americans want anarchy and total destruction/s
IF this is true then the RATS might as well stay home!
What does Madame President have to say about this?
Where? In Cuba? China?
Ask yourself one question.
Do you know anyone who voted for Trump in 2016 who will vote for Biden in 2020?
Thus, if no 2016 Trump voters are voted for Biden in 2020, there is no way that Trump can lose.
Clearly, Joe Biden is on track to get 400 million more votes than Trump. Anything less than that will be evidence that Putin manipulated the election AGAIN for Trump.
Just like in 2016. CNN...all fake news all the time.
Trump: 47% approval; Obama, this date 8 years ago: 44% approval.
I think Carly Fiorina did, and maybe even Mittens and Ryan.
They just can’t help themselves.
It’s going to be so satisfying when Trump wins the biggest victory since ‘84.
Polls are good for dancing, not much else.
He faced that in 2016 also, according to you CNN.
Laughing as I type...
Yahoo (earlier today) had this same story prominently displayed on their main page.
A while later, they had another story (by the NY Slimes) about how Trump’s presence on the ticket was really hurting our GOP Senate candidates.
In fact, Yahoo’s main page has gone on a full frontal attack against Trump and the GOP. Go over and look at it. It’s sad really.
I’m withholding judgement on the polls because of what happened in 2016 - but I get the feeling that Election Night will be either a GOP landslide across the board or we’re gonna get out butts handed to us in a really bad way.
I pray for the sake of this nation that we don’t go the latter route.
Nope, but I know quite a few who voted for Hillary (or didn’t vote) but are now voting for Trump.
