18 days later, Reuters’ polls of September 13 show a big surge in Electoral College votes for Trump, from 171 to 243, and a drop in Hillary’s votes from 295 to 242, so that the two are now virtually tied.

The map below shows Reuters‘ latest prediction of what the 2016 Electoral College map will look like once all the votes are counted. Notice that the entire central portion of the U.S. has turned red (including Colorado and New Mexico) along with Florida and South Carolina in the Southeast. Reuters even moved Pennsylvania out of the Democrat column and into the “Too Close To Call” column.
