Which states support Clinton, Trump; which are toss-ups

- The 2016 presidential election has re-written many rules when it comes to which states favor which party and its nominee.

For Hillary Clinton, the states that were won by President Barack Obama in 2012 have mostly stayed Democrat-leaning this year.

However, Florida and Nevada, which usually vote for the Democrat, are now toss-ups, along with a wide swath of the upper midwest, according to a report by FOX News.

For Donald Trump and the Republican party,  a shift has taken place in Georgia and Arizona, which usual vote for the GOP.

Georgia is not in the bag for Trump, but it is leaning in his direction. Arizona is a toss-up. 

The current  number of “solid” and “lean” Democrat states would give Clinton 287 electoral votes. The Republican-rated states give Trump 174. 

The winner needs to reach 270 electoral votes and anything can happen between now and Election Day.

With enough victories in the toss-up states: Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Iowa, Ohio, and Florida; and the states leaning toward the Republican: Texas, Missouri and Georgia, Trump could reach the magic number.
