Yes, Donald Trump can win. Here are 4 maps that prove it

Two things that may seem contradictory at first are true of this election in its final days:

1. Donald Trump is making up ground on Hillary Clinton.

2. Hillary Clinton still has a solid hold on the 270 electoral votes she needs to be elected president in six days’ time.

But, how solid is the Democratic nominee’s grip on that 270?  I thought it would be worth fiddling around with our terrific electoral map tool to see how many realistic paths Trump has to 270 electoral votes as a way of answering that question. (By realistic, I mean could actually happen. So, no, Trump winning California is not an option I explored.)

1.  Trump 272, Clinton 266
