What is the best path to victory for Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. .. And which states could unexpectedly play key roles?

The head of the House Republican campaign arm is warning GOP candidates to poll often during the last month before Election Day because of a deteriorating political environment for the party.

Oregon Rep. Greg Walden spoke to House GOP lawmakers Monday during a conference call. Two people on the call say Walden said there is still a path to victory for Republicans in tight races, but it would be like landing a plane in a fog with a hurricane blowing.

The two people say Walden said the national political climate has been shifting against Republicans, particularly among women.

They say he also said presidential candidate Donald Trump's polling numbers have been declining since his first debate against Hillary Clinton, and he expects that to continue.
