Larry Sabato Releases His Final ‘Crystal Ball’ Projections

Respected political prognosticator Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, a frequent guest on FOX News, released his final “Crystal Ball” projections for the crazy 2016 election, which thankfully ends with Tuesday’s vote.

In the presidential election, Sabato predicts that Donald Trump will lose to Hillary Clinton by over one hundred electoral votes, 322 for Clinton and 216 for Trump.

Sabato predicts the U.S. Senate, now controlled by a GOP majority, will end in a 50-50 tie, which means the vice president, either Mike Pence or Tim Kaine would have the tiebreaking vote. The tie would be the result of a four-seat gain by the Democrats under this scenario.

In the House of Representatives, Sabato predicts that Republicans will hold their majority, although the GOP will have a net loss of 13 seats. Republicans will hold a 234 – 201 advantage according to the projection, which would be extremely important should the GOP be up to stopping Hillary Clinton’s likely forthcoming progressive leftist march to tyranny, should she get elected.

Larry Sabato produced the following graphics to illustrate his projections, including a state-by-state projection:

The race has tightened somewhat according to Sabato’s “Crystal Ball.” Roughly three weeks ago, Sabato predicted an even larger margin of victory for Hillary Clinton, with Clinton winning 352 electoral votes and Donald Trump receiving only 186.
