    People keep asking me about the landslide effect if there’s a massive Republican implosion.
    Even if that happened, the main state that would flip would be Missouri, then maybe Arizona, South Carolina, and one of the Dakotas. And that’s it.
    Even if a really big collapse occurred, with the current state breakdowns, it would only change the electoral college outcome to
    380 – to – 158.
