If what Schmidt is saying is true, and he probably knows about the internal polling, then we're going to see a number of reliably red states fall on election night. And a distinct possibility that the House could fall too. Which is why Republicans are starting to freak out.

Republican strategist Steve Schmidt sees a landslide victory for Hillary Clinton and possible Democratic majorities in both the U.S. Senate and House.

Schmidt told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday morning that Clinton was currently “trending over 400” electoral votes, based on recent polling, and he said Republicans are freaking out over the real possibility of losing their majorities in both houses of Congress.

“If this election was today, I think Republicans are down 25 seats (in the House), as of today — with the trend line going in the wrong direction,” Schmidt said.

Some of the public polls have gone stratospheric lately, like this one released this morning. A landslide? Not inconceivable at this point.
