Donald Trump believes that he will just ‘win’ next year’s election…
His unexpected with 2 years ago has made him think he can pull a win out even if he’ll be running a tougher race with him having a history …
As with policy?
His inside people are trying to shaking some sense into him….
RED FLAGS: Trumpworld is trying to wave a red flag in front of the president to warn him that his 2020 reelection battle is going to be a tougher fight than he’s willing to acknowledge. That’s why, people close to the campaign said, that unflattering internal poll numbers leaked about matchups with Joe Biden and other Democratic contenders in key states.
Trump at first denied the internal numbers existed (his campaign manager Brad Parscale confirmed they did indeed exist, but were from March) and his campaign then took action to dismiss those suspected of revealing them.
After the 17-state internal poll was outed, NBC News first reportedthat his campaign is “cutting ties with some of it’s own pollsters” going into the week of Trump’s official reelection kickoff event tomorrow in Orlando.
- “Days ahead of Trump’s official launch of his reelection bid on Tuesday, the campaign is severing its relationship with Brett Loyd, Mike Baselice and Adam Geller while keeping pollsters Tony Fabrizio and John McLaughlin,” my colleagues Felicia Sonmez, Josh Dawsey and Ashley Parker report of the personnel changes.
The real deal: A source close to the Trump campaign told Power Up that the leaks — and the way they were handled — are of more concern than the actual numbers:
- “Polls are simply snapshots in time, and the election is still a year and a half away. I’m not worried about the polling numbers as much as I’m worried about the volume of damaging leaks coming from within the campaign,” a source close to the campaign told Power Up.
However, campaign sources speculated the bleak poll numbers were leaked for a purpose: to send a wake up call to Trump about his poor standing.
- “2020 will be exponentially more difficult than 2016 and everyone needs to realize that,” the source close to the campaign explained.
- The message is clearly not one Trump has been receptive to, telling Fox News in an interview last week that the polling was “incorrect.”…..
The leaked pollsters are being replaced…
Donald Trump & Co. do NOT like things , true or NOT, that annoy the the boss….
President Trump’s campaign has decided to purge some of its pollsters after a leak of dismal internal polls for the president that he denied existed.
Just two days before the president is set to kick off his bid for re-election, a top adviser said on Sunday that the campaign was cutting ties with three of its five pollsters to prevent further disclosure of survey data.
The polling showed Mr. Trump behind former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. in several key battleground states, including by double digits in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. The results were confirmed to The New York Times by advisers to Mr. Trump, but when they became public, he called them “fake polls.”
For days, aides to Mr. Trump have tried to figure out whom to point the finger at over the leak of the data, which jolted and infuriated the president. But in continuing to discuss it, aides violated a long-held unofficial rule of campaigns not to comment publicly on internal polling, even if the numbers leak….
