Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said during a conference call with reporters that current polling is skewed to show a sizeable Joe Biden lead that doesn’t actually reflect reality.
Lewandowski pointed out that two-thirds of recent polls did not include any information about the demographics of who was polled, which means that they could have polled far more Democrats than Republicans in order to get the result they wanted.
“This is how some pollsters are skewing the results,” Lewandowski said. “They don’t want their polls to face scrutiny, so they won’t give us the crosstabs or the partisan makeup of the polls, thereby skewing the results.”
Lewandowski claimed that President Donald Trump’s internal polling showed a very different picture of which candidate was leading in the race.
Trump enthusiasm off the charts
“The enthusiasm in the states are very real,” Lewandowski said.
“Couple that with the endorsements this president is receiving from the law enforcement community, and the increase in the African American vote he’s going to receive this cycle, compared to where he was just four years ago, and it’s becoming mathematically almost impossible for Joe Biden to win this campaign.”
Campaign manager Bill Stepien also pointed out that they have been registering far more new voters than Biden’s campaign.
“Voter registration trends are not being caught by pollsters right now,” Stepien said. “Whatever polling we see existing now in states’ voter registration trends are simply not being reflected.”
Huge GOP vote registration surge could upend election in swing states
More than seven times more Republicans than Democrats have been registered in Pennsylvania in the last four year, with Republicans having nearly 170,000 net registrations. In 2016, Trump won the state by only 44,000 votes.
A similar trend is occurring in Florida, where new Republican registrations have cut to less than half the 330,000 Democrat voter registration advantage in the state.
Democrats are relying on a mail-in voting advantage to bring Biden across the finish line, but Florida voter data expert Dan Smith said that advantage may not materialize.
“Voting by mail is a completely different process, one that is alien to many voters,” Smith said. “To think that merely requesting a ballot means you’re going to vote is very risky.”
