The GOP nominee needs a place to reset the electoral map, and stops this past week in Michigan and Pennsylvania suggest he's looking at the industrial heartland states on the Great Lakes.If Clinton claims states such as Colorado, Virginia and North Carolina, where recent polls suggest she has a significant lead, Trump would need to win most of the states bordering one of the Great Lakes to have any chance at reaching 270 .Right now, Trump doesn't have a lead in any of the states where he will need to win and where recent polling exists, and in several states, he's significantly behind Clinton.While Ohio has tipped back and forth in recent decades, a Republican presidential nominee has not carried Wisconsin since 1984, and Pennsylvania or Michigan since 1988 .Though Clinton's team isn't advertising on television in either Michigan or Wisconsin, she is hardly ignoring the states.Clinton followed Trump to Michigan this past week, making a stop in the Detroit area that was more tactically precise than the billionaire's speech to the city's well-heeled business leaders.
