It’s past deadline to get a new candidate on the ballot in 20 states. If Hillary drops out now, it pretty much ensures a Trump victory.

If they were to replace her today, the Dems wouldn’t be on the ballot on states totaling 281 electoral votes. If they replace after Tuesday, they lose out on Indiana and Massachusetts which bring them to 303. After Wednesday, they lose out on Vermont to bring them to 306. After Thursday they lose Rhode Island to 310.

They can still do write-ins but not being on the ballot pretty much guarantees you won’t win that state. Changing candidates at this point pretty much guarantees a Trump victory.
