GOP electoral path to White House difficult to see...

Myra Adams, conservative columnist for the Daily Beast, opines on the likelihood of a Republican candidate securing the required 270 electoral votes to win the White House in 2016. Adams details three reasons why its almost impossible for anyone but a Democrat to be the next President.

"After totaling the electoral votes in all the terminally blue states, an inconvenient math emerges, providing even a below average Democrat presidential candidate a potential starting advantage of 246. Here are the states and their votes:

CA (55), NY (29), PA (20), IL (20), MI (16), NJ (14), WA (12), MA (11), MN (10), WI (10), MD (10), CT (7), OR (7), HI (4), ME (4), NH (4), RT (4), VT (3), DE (3), DC (3).
Let me repeat, if only for the shock value: 246 votes out of 270 is 91 percent. That means the Democrat candidate needs to win only 24 more votes out of the remaining 292. (There are a total of 538 electoral votes.)"
