It seems that Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway had an epiphany on Meet The Press Sunday morning, owning up to something most of America already knew. Donald Trump is getting clobbered by Hillary Clinton. The ABC news poll Sunday morning had Clinton up +12 on Trump.
“We are behind,” Conway said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Clinton, she said, “has some advantages, like $66 million in ad buys just in the month of September, thereby doubling her ad buys from August. Now, most of those ads are negative against Donald Trump?—?classic politics of personal destruction, cesspool kind of ads. And she has tremendous advantages: She has a former president, who happens to be her husband, campaigning for her. The current president and first lady, vice president, all much more popular than she can hope to be.”
• Clinton leads Trump by 20 percentage points among women, 55–35 percent. She’s gained 12 points (and Trump’s lost 16) from mid-October among non-college-educated white women, some of whom initially seemed to rally to Trump after disclosure of the videotape.
• Clinton has doubled her lead to 32 points, 62–30 percent, among college-educated white women, a group that’s particularly critical of his response to questions about his sexual conduct. (Seventy-six percent disapprove, 67 percent strongly.)
• That said, Clinton’s also ahead numerically (albeit not significantly) among men, 44–41 percent, a first in ABC News and ABC/Post polling.
• Trump is just +4 among whites overall, 47–43 percent, a group Mitt Romney won by 20 points in 2012. Broad success among whites is critical for any Republican candidate; nonwhites, a reliably Democratic group, favor Clinton by 54 points, 68–14 percent. Courtesy, ABC News
Conway said that Trump is “at his best when he sticks to the issues” but that he also defends himself against false accusations.”
When did Trump ever stick to the issues? Clinton played him for an orange haired clown in the debates. He’s so easy- get under his skin and… “No puppet, no puppet, you’re the puppet.”
When you start out with the worst candidate since the American Revolutionary War where you are now is a forgone conclusion. Conway doesn’t realize many voters aren’t fazed by articles about Clinton’s emails, etc because Trump’s thin-skinned temperament and vindictive attitude (which is apparent EVERY time he speaks) is a deciding factor. I don’t care so much for Clinton, but she’s got a presidential demeanor where Trump acts like a whiney, snubbed schoolkid who can’t see he’s causing most of his own problems. For example, the Gettysburg speech… he should have started with policy instead of the “getting even” garbage because it shows what is his top priority.
I do believe that Kellyanne knows the inevitable outcome of this election, and Sunday the truth came out. It will indeed set you free Mrs. Conway. The polls are not in your favor, and the media report the polls. Blame it on your candidate. No one is stopping any of your supporters from voting.
