What’s the biggest sign that Hillary Clinton’s 2016 candidacy is in danger? It’s not the narrowness of the race in traditional battleground states like Ohio and Florida where the contests are usually decided by just a point or two. Nor is it possibility that Trump might carry Pennsylvania, a state where Mitt Romney failed to campaign and still only lost by just five points.
No, the real sign of trouble for Clinton is her utter failure to “redraw the electoral map” in diehard Red states like Georgia, Utah, Arizona and Texas. Her campaign has bragged for months about the prospects of an electoral landslide, supposedly due to her ability to win over Republican voters and independents in states that have voted reliably GOP for years – five decades in the case of Utah, and four in the case of Georgia.
But those prospects have disappeared faster than the former First Lady’s 33,000 emails.
