Amidst a general tightening of the race in key battleground states and a pattern of both Democratic and Republican voters coming home to the major-party candidates, Emerson College Polling is predicting that Hillary Clinton will win the Electoral College by a landslide, 323-215.

The map, shown here, reflects Emerson polling results in battleground and other states, combined with RealClearPolitics polling averages in those states Emerson did not survey.

In battleground Senate races, Emerson also projects that Democrats will come out of the election with 50 seats or more. That would be enough to claim a Senate majority if Clinton is elected and Tim Kaine, as Vice President, becomes the tie-breaking vote.

The final round of polls suggest that the following Democratic challengers will flip GOP seats in four states: Tammy Duckworth vs. Mark Kirk in Illinois, Russ Feingold vs. Ron Johnson in Wisconsin, Jason Kander vs .Roy Blunt in Missouri and Katie McGinty vs. Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania.

Presidential Race – Polls Published November 7





Hillary Clinton





Donald Trump





Gary Johnson





Jill Stein




















Two of four polls Emerson published Monday are leaning toward Clinton, both by a single point and well within the margin of error. In Nevada, Clinton is ahead 47% to 46%. In New Hampshire, her lead is 45% to 44%.

The other two surveys show Trump leading, but with more breathing room. He has a 6-point advantage in Missouri, 47% to 41%, and a 7-point edge in Ohio, 46% to 39%.

The most significant shift since earlier Emerson polls came in Ohio, where an October 29 survey had the race tied at 45% each. Since then, Trump gained 7 points while Clinton lost 6 points, largely due to long-reluctant John Kasich primary voters finally moving to the Trump camp.

In Missouri, Trump saw a 15-point advantage (52% to 37%) on November 2 shrink to 6 points in today’s poll with 7% of voters sticking with Gary Johnson, 3% remaining with Stein and 3% unsure.

In the battle to control the U.S. Senate, two of the polls released today give a slight advantage to the Democratic candidate: Jason Kander in Missouri and Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada.

Kander leads GOP incumbent Roy Blunt, 46% to 45%, while Masto is up 48% to 47% versus Joe Heck in the race to fill retiring Senator Harry Reid’s seat.

New Hampshire’s Kelly Ayotte has seen a 6-point lead over Democrat Maggie Hassan cut to 3 points (49% to 46%). There are virtually no undecided voters remaining, although 5% of respondents plan to vote for “someone else.”

Ohio Senator Republican Rob Portman continues to hold a wide advantage over his challenger Ted Strickland, 49% to 28%.

The Emerson College polls for Nevada, Missouri, New Hampshire, and Ohio were conducted November 4-5 under the supervision of Professor Spencer Kimball.
