As of today Trump could not win outright, best case scenario is a 269-269 tie, House Republicans choose Trump.

Clinton/Kaine-45.6%(269 Electoral Votes)
Trump/Pence-45.1%(269 Electoral Votes)

Even that would never happen. NV is solid for Hillary, and NH isn't far behind.
Why does everyone seem to think this? There are a lot of Hispanics in NV, yes, but there are also a lot of non-college whites, many of whom were Obama voters but may go to Trump this year. If you look at the map that the Times released a while ago, Nevada is actually a state with more uneducated white Obama voters than Hispanic or educated white Romney voters, which means that Trump has more room to grow. Besides, even if the polls are off by 5 points, they still show Clinton ahead by 6 or 7 at most, which is closer than, say, PA. Don't take Nevada for granted.

Considering that Romney lost NV by nearly 7% (more than every swing state that year except Wisconsin), and Trump is set to do significantly worse among Latinos and educated white voters (not to mention Mormons) than Romney, it won't be enough for Trump to simply do better among whites without a college degree. He'd need an absolutely absurd swing among those voters to win the state, and it's simply not going to happen. It's much more likely that the polls are just off in Nevada, since there's plenty of historical precedent for that.

Most college Republicans here despise Trump and many are considering not voting at all in the Presidential contest.

That's because American universities are failing our youth by indoctrinating them with left-wing propaganda in the classroom. Just look at all these college professors. They're all liberal democrats. And then we wonder what's wrong with our country.

Care demonstrating how this indoctrination is taking place? Because all I'm hearing from you are the standard anti-intellectual right-wing talking points used to defund our education systems and dumb down the population or reduce opportunities for those who could have afforded it otherwise.

Literally, all the #NeverTrump Republicans loved Breitbart until this year. I can remember many of the #NeverTrump folks I know from my personal experiences in politics memorializing him profusely when Breitbart himself died.
Hypocrites.

I've read Breitbart. It's pure, unadulterated crap served on a bun. At least Huffpo has an aggregate poll average, which is useful. Breitbart is so smug, it makes smug liberals look downright humble.
Breitbart didn't become trash until after Andrew Breitbart died.

Well, it was always a little loony, but it didn't completely lose the last touches with reality until this past year. Once Andrew Breitbart died then it became a Trumpian Pravda tabloid and never looked back.

Certain people compare Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler. I've seen people doctor up photos that give Trump a Hitler mustache and Swastikas. This is what I have to say about Trump being compared to Hitler. IT IS RIDICULOUS! Hitler was an evil maniac. Because of him, thousands and thousands of people ended up dead. Trenches had to be dug and dead bodies were tossed into the trenches because of the huge amount of casualties.
More like tens of millions.

Trump will be fortunate to hang on to Georgia, let alone flip PA.

A silver-lining, perhaps, to Donald Trump's candidacy:

Quote
Donald Trump has effectively declared Muslims the enemy, accusing them of shielding terrorists in their midst, pushing to ban them from entering the country, and suggesting that the United States should start thinking seriously about profiling them. In response, some American Muslim women are speaking out against Trump and his anti-Muslim rhetoric.

“I never really felt like I was ‘the other’ until now,” said Mirriam Seddiq, a 45-year-old immigration and criminal-defense lawyer from Northern Virginia who recently started a political-action committee called American Muslim Women. “It’s a strange realization to have, but it’s what motivated me to do this. There are so many misconceptions about Muslim women, and I want to help counter that narrative.”

If the organization raises enough money, Seddiq wants to air aids opposing Trump in the run-up to the November election. Beyond that, she plans to host a voter-registration drive and hopes to build up a support network that will help Muslim women run for office.

Muslim women are uniquely vulnerable to sexism and Islamophobia. They can become visible targets for harassment when they wear headscarves. They are also often subjected to negative stereotypes and forced to respond to misconceptions that they are oppressed and silenced by their religion.

(...) Muslim women might be able to help dispel anti-Muslim sentiment in American politics. Data from the Pew Research Center suggests that non-Muslims are less likely to hold negative perceptions of Muslims if they know someone who is Muslim. By getting involved in politics, Muslim women can actively shape public policy and create a political climate less overtly hostile to their religion.
