In the midst of the ongoing Russia investigation, Trump has tried to shield himself in the public eye by attacking law enforcement officials at the FBI and DOJ, insinuating they are part of a “Deep State” plot of Obama loyalists to destroy him.

Trump can still win, of course. But his prospects are especially bleak if you believe, as the latest YouGov/CBS News poll tells us, that Clinton is leading in both Pennsylvania and North Carolina. Romney won North Carolina and Trump is this far outperforming the GOP nominee only in Iowa.
