This Election is Very Close & People Are Freaking Out

If you’re watching the polls right now, you’re probably seeing that this election is very close. Currently, Hillary Clinton has 104 electoral votes and Donald Trump has 140 electoral votes. One of them needs 270 points to win the presidency. And Trump is doing much better than expected. He has a lead in North Carolina, Florida and Ohio, three key battleground states. And while Clinton has taken back the lead in Virginia for now, she’s not winning by as much as pollsters thought she would. 

People are not happy about this: 

Hang tight, everybody.
