The odds of Hillary Clinton reaching the White House are not as high as they seem, according to new research from The Lindsey Group.

The economic advisory firm found several scenarios where the GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump could end up in a dead heat with or even pull ahead of Clinton, contrary to conventional thinking.

There's even a case to be made where voters who view Clinton as a "wicked stepmother" or Trump as "bigoted uncle" could cause an upset by swinging to the Libertarian camp, said Larry Lindsey, CEO of The Lindsey Group.
