Republicans would win the presidency in 2016 without Nevada, Colorado or Virginia. How would you have guessed the electoral map would look like?

Honestly Id be pretty stunned that a losing Dem would still be carrying all three of NV, CO & VA that Id seriously guess that the result was a 269-269 tie, with a narrow popular vote win for the Dem and the GOP House selecting the Republican

My map in the summer of 2016 was this one, but I won't have the results of the 2014 midterms.

Basically flip all the narrowest Obama 2012 wins to get a Republican win while skipping any mentioned states.

I would think the GOP picked up FL and OH for sure, and NH by nominating a libertarian-leaning candidate. That's not enough to win-- and honestly I'd have no idea how they got over the top.
