FiveThirtyEight's Nate Silver Predicts Hillary Clinton Wins Election Against Donald Trump

FiveThirtyEight says Clinton has a 79 percent chance of winning.

Clinton has a 79 percent chance of winning, compared with Trump's 20 percent, according to FiveThirtyEight’s forecast.

"We're at halftime of the election right now," Silver said. "She's taking a 7-point, maybe a 10-point lead into halftime. There's a lot of football left to be played. She's ahead in almost every poll, every swing state, every national poll."

Silver called 49 states correctly in the 2008 presidential election and got all 50 in 2012.

FiveThirtyEight launches its general election forecast later today here.
