With just one full day to go before Election Day, President Trump tried to make every minute count as he continued to hold campaign rallies in swing states. Sunday, in the midst of a stiff wind chill and snow flurries, the president appeared before thousands of excited supporters in Michigan.
Not surprisingly, Trump portrayed a very confident tone with his supporters, saying of his opponent Joe Biden, “I don’t think he knows he’s losing.” He predicted he would repeat his 2016 victory in Michigan, and reminded those in attendance of how his administration tried to create auto jobs. “We brought back your car industry. Your car industry was finished. You would have had nothing left,” Trump said.
With national polls still showing Joe Biden to be leading, Trump’s senior campaign advisor Jason Miller appeared on ABC’s “This Week” and said their data leads them to believe they will sweep the Sun Belt states. “You look at Arizona, where I’m very confident, very safe, that we’re going to win Arizona. But even if for some reason we didn’t have Arizona, we could pick off Nevada, a place where our modeling shows that we’re going to win on Tuesday, as well as Michigan,” Miller added.
“And that would put President Trump over the top. So we have multiple pathways and we feel very good about where we’re going,” he said.
Miller also said he has a pretty good idea of how the days after Tuesday will play out if Trump comes out of Election Day as the clear winner, saying “smart Democrats” are already working on a strategy to “steal” the election.
“We believe that it will be over 290 electoral votes on election night. So no matter what they tried to do, what kind of hijinks or lawsuits or whatever kind of nonsense they try to pull off, we’re still going to have enough electoral votes to get President Trump reelected,” Miller told George Stephanopoulos.
