In making this prediction, along with the current polls [in not so much the current head to head match up-which will surely go up and down, but more importantly the “fit to be president” questions] the Tales utilized information from the great web sites of Real Clear Politics, Nate Silvers NY times 538, and the Election Betting Odds by Maxim Lott and John Stossel.

Now absent any major game changing external events in the next couple of months, such as, God forbid, an Islamic terror attack in the United States or an economic catastrophe [such as numbers indicating an almost certain recession], here is the Tales prediction of the upcoming presidential election in November of 2016 between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
Disclosure: Because I have no idea about the Nebraska congressional district 2 and the Maine congressional district 2, both worth 1 electoral vote, I just split them, giving one to Trump and one to Clinton.
Hillary Clinton will win 30 states plus the District of Columbia [3 electoral votes] and Maine’s congressional district 2 [1 electoral vote]:
CA  Hawaii  MA  VT  MD  R.I.  Delaware  IL  NY  WA  CO  CT 
Maine  MN  NH  NJ  New Mexico 
Oregon  PA  AZ  Florida  GA 
IA  MI  Nevada  NC  OH  VA 
WI  Utah 
As you see most of the states are in line with most of the experts except possibly my picks of Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina and Utah to Hillary Clinton. But even if you gave Donald Trump those four states, this still would be an electoral landslide.
Donald Trump will win 20 states plus Nebraska’s congressional district 2 [1electoral vote]:
Alabama  Arkansas  KS  Nebraska  OK 
West Virginia  Alaska  ID  KY  ND 
TN  WY  South Dakota  Montana  LA 
TX  MS  Indiana  MO  SC 
2016 Electoral Vote:
Hillary Clinton 380
Donald Trump 158
Even if the Tales is wrong about the four states of AZ, GA , NC and UT and they all go to Donald Trump that would still make it Hillary Clinton 328 to Donald Trump’s 210.
