New map shows swing states in play, and it’s looking good, REAL good, for Donald Trump

Donald Trump is leading in five of the top seven battleground states, according to a new poll.

Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly broke down the “dramatic numbers” from a Real Clear Politics poll during Thursday’s “The Kelly File.” The seven swing states in the 2016 battle for the White House represent more than one third of all the electoral votes needed to win.

The poll showed Trump leading over Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton by five points in Iowa and more than two points in Nevada. The Republican nominee is also leading in the key states of Ohio and North Carolina. In Colorado, Trump is just edging ahead of Clinton.

In the swing state of Florida, the two candidates are in a dead heat while Clinton continues to lead in Pennsylvania, the poll showed. But in that state, where Trump has not been expected to win, he has narrowed the gap to less than two points.

Kelly noted that the battleground states, except for North Carolina, were won by President Obama in the last two election cycles.
