A candidate needs 270 electoral votes out of 538 to win the presidency. Get started to make your own forecast.
Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren fired back at Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump while campaigning with Hillary Clinton in the critical state of New Hampshire yesterday, saying "nasty women vote." "Get this, Donald -- nasty women are tough," Warren quipped. "Nasty women are smart. And nasty women vote. And on Nov. 8, we nasty women are going to march our nasty feet to cast our nasty votes to get you out of our lives forever." Warren's comments were a reference to what Trump said during his third debate with Clinton, when he called her "such a nasty woman."

Warren is back on the campaign trail for Clinton again today. She holds an evening event in Raleigh, North Carolina.
For all their sharp differences, supporters of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have one thing in common: election-related stress. Nearly half of all likely voters in the ABC News tracking poll, 46 percent, describe the election as a source of stress in their lives, including roughly equal numbers of Clinton and Trump supporters, ABC's GARY LANGER notes. Nearly a quarter, again among both candidates' camps, say the stress is serious. Voter preferences in the latest tracking poll, based on four-day results through Sunday night, remain the same as the initial three-day result reported Sunday: 50 percent support Clinton, 38 percent Trump, with 5 percent for Gary Johnson and 2 percent for Jill Stein. Clinton's 12-point margin over Trump holds at 53 to 41 percent in a two-way matchup, indicating that Johnson and Stein aren't drawing disproportionately from either of the two major-party candidates. http://abcn.ws/2eNFjUT
Amid the daily din of the 2016 presidential horse-race and the flurry of comments from each of the candidates, it is often difficult to keep track of something basic -- Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump's positions on the issues. Toss in the occasional flip-flop, hedging and dodging and getting a sense of where they stand is potentially even more difficult to determine. Here is a rundown of where Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump stand on 13 key issues, courtesy of ABC's LINDSEY JACOBSON, VERONICA STRACQUALURSI and MEGHAN KENEALLY: http://abcn.ws/2ejoEcx
Analysis - ABC's Rick Klein
Will he have a closing message? If you believe Donald Trump's version of the race, or something in its vicinity, he's down but not out. Lacking another debate and trailing Hillary Clinton in resources, he needs something dramatic to change directions – or at least get those on the sidelines suited up on his behalf. His overriding message in recent days has been about the "rigged election" – a rallying cry for anger, though not necessarily voting. He is, of course, attacking the polls he once touted at the top of all his big speeches. He has also, in recent days, threaten to sue his accusers, along with the usual jumps on headlines – Wikileaks revelations, Obamacare rates, etc. The freewheeling style has gotten him this far. But it's hard to discern a strategy behind Trump's campaign style now, with two precious weeks still to play with.
Two weeks before Election Day, the campaign for Hillary Clinton has its eye on the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency -- and then some. As polls show the Democratic nominee widening her lead over Republican Donald Trump, her campaign is aiming not just to win the White House on Nov. 8, but to have decisive victories up and down the ballot. "We want to win by as a large a margin as we can," Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon told ABC News. "Then I think we want to build on that to try to get things done," he said. A decisive victory in the presidential race as well as Democrats winning control of the U.S. Senate could help Clinton accomplish her policy agenda after Election Day. It may also help squelch Trump's accusation that the election was "rigged," though the Clinton camp denies that's part of their goal. To achieve this, the campaign has launched a multipronged strategy, ABC's LIZ KREUTZ reports: http://abcn.ws/2dFcCHS
Donald Trump hammered home Monday that he is winning the race for the White House but also conceded that his campaign is "somewhat behind" in the polls. "Folks, we're winning. We're winning. We're winning," he declared in St. Augustine, Fla. And earlier Trump declared on Twitter, "We are winning and the press is refusing to report it," ABC's EMILY SHAPIRO writes. But in an interview on WBT radio Monday, Trump said "I guess I'm somewhat behind in the polls but not by much." The day before, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press," saying, "We are behind." http://abcn.ws/2dPsYRd
