Trump's victory is highly unlikely, the survey shows

The U.S. Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has an approximately 90% chance of winning the White House office, the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll reveals. 

"Her chances are roughly similar to last week's odds, and any upset by Trump on Tuesday depends on an unlikely combination of turnouts of white, black and Hispanic voters in six or seven states", the agency marks. 

According to the polls, Clinton has the popular support of 45% of the voters, while her Republican rival Donald Trump is left behind with 42% rating. 

This popular support allows Clinton to count on approximately 303 elector voters, while 270 of them are necessary for winning the race for the White House. In his turn, Trump can probably reach the top point of 235 elector votes.

Any combination of two Trump defeats in the states of Florida, Michigan and Pennsylvania will almost guarantee Clinton's victory, the poll figures show, while Trump's campaign may be salvaged by an overwhelmingly high electoral turnout for white middle-class voters.
