    'Blue Wall' Gives Trump Little Room for Error

    Donald Trump, the likely GOP nominee, will have his own walls to face this election, according to NBC News.

    Since 1992, a "Blue Wall" has been established, referring to 18 states and the District of Columbia that have voted for a Democratic president. The wall constantly puts the Democrats only 28 electoral votes away from the 270 they need to win.

    The presidential election is not really a national election, but one determined by a handful of key states that sit on the political fence between either party. These states are perennial battlegrounds, but the front line has shifted in Democrats' favor in recent years.

    Republicans, on the other hand, have consistently won only 13 states over that same period, for a tally of 102 electoral votes. Trump needs to win both Florida and Ohio, or he needs flip long-held Democratic states like Pennsylvania.
