trump__clinton-2-701x482Presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have only a few days left to prepare for the first debate Monday night, when the two major-party nominees will need to make a compelling case to voters in the key states that could decide who succeeds President Barack Obama in the White House.

The race to the White House often comes down to a handful of states, such as Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, that could swing the election. Democrat Clinton and Republican Trump will almost assuredly have these states in mind as they take to the debate stage Monday in Hempstead, New York.

The latest polls show Trump holds a small advantage in Ohio. The Real Clear Politics average put him up by 1.2 percentage points, while a poll last week from Suffolk University had him up by three points in the state. FiveThirtyEight’s election forecast Wednesday gave Trump a 60.1 percent chance of winning the state.
