This polling agency says Clinton has plunged 60 electoral votes in the last week

In further evidence the election is tightening up in its final weeks, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are now less than 10 electoral votes apart on the RealClearPolitics electoral map. When toss-up states are pushed to their more likely outcome, Clinton claims a projected 273 electoral votes — just three more than the 270 needed to win. Trump, meanwhile, is five behind the winning number with 265.

Just last week, Clinton was projected to have a whopping 333 electoral votes under her belt, while Trump had just 205, Mic's Luke Brinker reported:

The map now shows Trump winning battleground states like Ohio, North Carolina, Arizona, Georgia, Florida, and Iowa. Clinton hangs on to just Colorado and Virginia.
