The campaign heads to a crucial showdown

As both candidates prepare for Monday night’s televised debate, here’s where the race for president stands:

Donald Trump still has a possible path to victory, but Hillary Clinton has survived one of her worst stretches in the campaign with her lead in key states narrowed, but still intact

That sets up the central fact for Monday night — Trump needs to find a way to change the course of the race, and the debate remains his best, maybe last, chance to do so.
