The following map shows the election 2016 swing states. There are 146 electoral votes that most experts agree are in the swing state category. It takes 270 electoral votes to win the Presidency.
The following map shows our prediction based on recent polling. Our prediction gives Donald Trump 282 electoral votes and Hillary Clinton 256 electoral votes.
In an interview "On The Record," Donald Trump was asked about his Vice Presidential short list. He said he narrowed the list down to 5, 6 or 7 people. Donald Trump did in fact say that Former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin were both on the Vice Presidential list. Donald Trump said the following about Jan Brewer and Mary Fallin in the interview. "She has been so fantastic. You know I won so big, her territory, we won so big. And she is a fabulous woman. And I agree with you, the governor of Oklahoma, fabulous person."

Since May 3rd our fake Indian liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren from Massachusetts has been attacking Donald Trump on twitter. Little does Warren realizes that when you attack Donald Trump you get attacked back ten times harder. He even gave Warren a nickname, "Goofy." These are some of the tweets that Warren posted. Keep in mind Warren poste 27 tweets about Donald Trump when this post was made.
Following tweets are the posts Donald Trump made today about Elizabeth Warren.
Benghazi alone should be the single reason why Hillary should be disqualified from being President of the United States. Due to Hillary Clinton's dereliction of duty four Americans died. We all remember Hillary Clinton's 2008 campaign ad asking who do you want to be answering the phone at three in the morning. Well based on that ad and her actions we do not want her. She failed to send the required resources to Benghazi in the first place to defend the Embassy from attack. When the Embassy was attacked she did nothing to help the Ambassador and the Americans stationed there. After the attack she lied to the American people and to the family's that lost loved ones that the attack was not a terrorist attack but just a bunch of angry guys mad over a video. We do know based off of her emails that while she was lying to the American people she told her daughter and others that this was in fact a terrorist attack.
I expect Donald Trump to hammer Hillary over this issue on the campaign trail as well as during the debates.
Governor Chris Christie will serve as Transition Team Chairman, overseeing an extensive team of professionals preparing to take over the White House, and all that entails, in the fall. Governor Christie has been a loyal supporter and confidant to Mr. Trump and the campaign. He has been entrusted to oversee this important task with the goal to implement this team in an official capacity in November.
If you looked across the media lately they is speculating that Donald Trump may pick a female to be Vice President. The obvious reason for this would be to soften Donald Trump's image to women as well as combat the women card due to Hillary being the Democratic nominee. So I have compiled a list of possible female members of Congress and Governors that would be likely to be on Donald Trump's short list.
There was speculation that Governor Nikki Haley of South Carolina would be on Donald Trump's short list but Trump announced recently that Nikki Haley is not being vetted. Governor Susana Martinez of New Mexico has also be mentioned as a possible Vice President but she has been persistent saying she does not want to be Vice President. All of the Governors and members of Congress have successful records and careers and would add political experience as well as knowledge to a Trump campaign.
The following 2016 candidates broke the GOP pledge to support the Republican Presidential Nominee.
The following GOP candidates have endorsed Donald Trump. (Ben Carson and Chris Christie both endorsed Donald Trump as their first choice before Trump became the presumptive nominee.)
The following GOP candidates have yet to announce their intentions.
Two candidates broke the Republican pledge that they signed. Eight candidates followed through with the pledge and six candidates have not made their intentions clear.
Jeb Bush and Lindsey Graham both announced that they would not support Donald Trump as the Republican nominee. This move is disgraceful and shows that both can not be trusted since they said they would support the GOP nominee.
Way back in August during the first Presidential debate, Bret Baier asked a question to all the candidates if they would support the eventual Republican nominee. Every candidate said yes except Donald Trump. You can watch that exchange in the below video.
Right after this debate the Republican Party wanted all the Republican Presidential candidates to sign a pledge saying they would support the Republican Presidential nominee. All 17 candidates signed it including Donald Trump. Right below is a video of Trump signing the pledge and a video of Jeb Bush saying he would support Donald Trump as the GOP nominee.
Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican Presidential nominee Jeb Bush and Lindsey Graham went back on their word and their pledge. Jeb Bush posted the following on Facebook yesterday.
Lindsey Graham posted nine tweets yesterday about not supporting Donald Trump. I will just post one of the nine tweets.
Donald Trump posted the following on Facebook in response to Lindsey Graham breaking the GOP pledge.
To sum it up, Jeb Bush and Lindsey Graham are just sore losers. They have to understand the party did not want them or their ideas. The people are not out of line it's the politicians and the party that are out of line with the people. Jeb Bush and Lindsey Graham are a disgrace to the conservative movement that they claim they support. They very well know that not voting for Donald Trump is basically voting for Hillary Clinton. They would rather see a lying liberal in the White House than a fellow Republican. If Jeb Bush or Lindsey Graham were the nominee they would have expected Trump to support them.
Tomi Lahren works for The Blaze. She is a tough talking Conservative. She lays out the facts and gives direct answers on the issues. During the primary season she did not support Donald Trump. However she will be voting for Trump in the general because she knows that not voting at all because the nominee is Trump is like voting for Hillary Clinton. The last thing any Conservative should want is Hillary Clinton as President. Watch the video below to see her response.
Donald Trump held this rally in Charleston, West Virginia on May 5, 2016. The rally was at the Charleston Civic Center.
Yesterday on Fox News Newt Gingrich slammed Speaker Paul Ryan for not outright supporting Donald Trump. Earlier in the day Paul Ryan was on CNN which he said he was not ready to support Donald Trump. Gingrich told Hannity it was a "big mistake" for Ryan not to endorse Trump. Gingrich also said, "He is the Speaker of the House. He has an obligation to unify the party. He has an obligation to reach out. Obviously he and Donald Trump are going to have disagreements. Some of them will work out and some of them they won’t. That’s fine. Our constitution provides that Speakers and Presidents can fight, but I think he sends the wrong signal and a signal which I think endangers the House Republicans and endangers the Senate Republicans."
You can watch the full interview of Gingrich on Hannity in the below video.
Yesterday while on Special Report, Bret Baier asked Donald Trump about the possible Vice Presidential candidates. Bret Bair asked Donald Trump about a report saying his campaign was considering Susana Martinez, Rob Portman and Nikki Haley for Vice President. Trump's response was “No, not Nikki Haley, no Nikki Haley no, she wasn’t under consideration.”
Nikki Haley has stated in the past she was not interested in being Trump's Vice President. During the primary she endorsed Marco Rubio however she has stated should would support Donald Trump for President.
You can watch the full interview below.
New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez
Landing the popular and telegenic governor of New Mexico would be a coup for Trump.
Ohio Governor John Kasich
Kasich is trail-tested and, as the popular governor of a critical swing state, must be included on any vice presidential short-list.
Retired Neurosurgeon Ben Carson
Trump told The New York Times on Wednesday that Carson will play an important role in the VP search. That would seem to take him off the board, although Dick Cheney had the same charge for President George W. Bush in 2000 and ended up finding himself.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio
It’s hard to envision a Trump-Rubio ticket after the two spent weeks hurling personal insults at one another before Trump finally triumphed over “Little Marco.”
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie
Christie doesn’t bring a swing state with him, and as the primary showed, he has a large national profile but not much of a base.
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich
Trump said Wednesday he’s looking for a candidate with “great political experience” who speaks the language of Washington and will help him with outreach to lawmakers.
Florida Governor Rick Scott
Trump has said he’s considering Scott as a vice presidential candidate.
General James Mattis
Mattis, a legendary, straight-talking four-star retired Marine Corps general whose nicknames include “Warrior Monk” and “Mad Dog,” might be right up Trump’s alley.
Tennessee Representative Marsha Blackburn
The outspoken Tennessee Republican is a veteran legislator with more than a decade of experience on Capitol Hill.
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley
The fast-rising GOP star is a young, telegenic, charismatic Indian-American and one of the most popular governors in the country.
The most interesting name on this list that the Hill posted is General James Mattis. From all the articles I have read this is the first time I saw his name mentioned as a Vice Presidential candidate. I have seen his name come up in the past for a potential independent run for President. However recently he has said he would not run as an independent for President. As far as I know I do not believe he has made any public comments about Donald Trump.
With all the Republican candidates officially out of the race, Donald Trump now looks to select a Vice President. We have compiled a list of potential Donald Trump Vice presidential candidates.
To pick the right Vice Presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign has to start the vetting process on each potential Vice Presidential candidate. Yesterday, May 4, 2016, Donald Trump told the New York Times that Ben Caron will be on the committee to help search for the a Vice President.
Donald Trump has said that he won't make a final decision on a Vice President until July. Trump has also said that he is looking for a Vice President with political experience.
