Some opinion polls even suggest Donald Trump is ahead of Hillary Clinton in the race to White House. Despite this there are several things that stand against the Republican candidate

Since 1992 18 states have consistently voted against Republicans. These states gives Democrats a firm foundation for Democrates in their fight against the Republicans

Four regions that are key in deciding the presidency Florida has considerable amount of minorities, who may not go with Donald Trump.. Trump has effectively staked his campaign n on strong support from whites. But  Florida as Hispanics here, including conservative-leaning Cuban-Americans who twice helped George W. Bush carry the state, turn away from his candidacy en masse.

North Carolina may be the most evenly divided presidential battleground in the country. New York Times reports that neither Trump, with his hard-edge nationalism, nor  Hillary Clinton, with a swirl of scandal surrounding her, is a natural fit for a state that longs  for political moderation but is increasingly disenchanted with the political class. But given the present political atmosphere it is said Trump needs North Carolina more than Hillary. With his difficulties among Hispanic voters  having a decisive say in l swing states such as Colorado, Nevada and Florida toward the Democrats, Trump  badly need to carry the all  28 electoral votes from North Carolina and Virginia to capture the White House.

Virginia, increasing the pressure on  Trump to win here.

There are many in the Republican camp  who worry that the backlash to the so-called bathroom bill, aimed at transgender people,  could lead moderates to cast their ballots for Democrats in November.

Pennsylvania is the  second-closest battleground in 2012 after Ohio.— The challenge for Trump  in Pennsylvania is to expand his appeal to blue-collar voters without alienating white-collar Republicans.

Hillary  Clinton’s allies say she only  need to hold on only to Obama’s coalition of young people, women and minorities to carry Pennsylvania. But Republicans say  Trump is making his own new alliances.

Arizona is a flash point in the immigration battles.  Many consider Hillary Clinton stands of winning Arizona after Bill Clinton won in 1996. Given the positions of Trump,  Republicans may find a hard time in Arizona. An immigration law enacted here in 2010 gives police wide ranging powers. This has given rise to many civil society groups. These organaisations are prompting people to register as voters. Their stand will definitely  have an impact in the election.
