According to New York-based rating agency Moody's, the Democratic nominee will receive 326 votes in the White House, compared to 212 votes that will be given to the Republican nominee.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) —The Democratic presidential nominee is expected to win the US presidential race, Moody's Analytics said.

According to New York-based rating agency Moody's, the Democratic nominee will receive 326 votes in the White House, compared to 212 votes that will be given to the Republican nominee.

The election results depend largely on how swing states vote, as the Democratic advantage in Florida, Ohio, Colorado, New Hampshire and Virginia is less than 1 percent, according to Moody's.

The US presidential election is scheduled for November 8, 2016.

Current Republican presidential hopefuls include former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, US senators Rand Paul, representing Kentucky, and Ted Cruz from Texas, as well as former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee and real estate magnate Donald Trump.

The Democrats who have joined the race include former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Senator Bernie Sanders from Vermont and former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley.

In fall 2016, Obama's second presidential term will expire. The year 2015 saw the start of the US presidential election campaign with candidates addressing the problems and failures of the current Obama administration, such as handling the fight against terrorism, domestic gun violence, relations with Russia, and continuous wars conducted outside US borders.
