Trump campaign manager says he'd win in an "electoral landslide" as of today

President Trump's campaign manager Brad Parscale is predicting Mr. Trump will win even more electoral votes than in 2016 — "an electoral landslide" — dismissing independent polling that shows the president trailing top Democrats.

<snip>

"I think we win Florida, yeah," Parscale told Garrett. "I think we win in an electoral landslide as of today."

Asked to define an electoral landslide, Parscale responded, "I think even more electoral points than he did last time." Mr. Trump won 306 electoral votes in 2016 (though two faithless electors declined to cast their votes for him, leaving him with 304 officially). A candidate needs 270 electoral votes to win the presidential election.

"I just think the country is too complex now to call a couple hundred people and ask them what they think," Parscale said. "There are so many ways and different people who show up and vote now. The way turnout works now. The abilities we have now to turn out voters. The polling can't understand that. And that's why the polling was so wrong in 2016. It was 100% wrong. Nobody got it right — not one public poll. The reason why — it's not 1962 anymore."

"There are so many ways and different people who show up and vote now. The way turnout works now......"

Gee, this guy does word salad almost as good as the former Alaska half term governor.

And I get what he means by "the way turnout works"..... "we'll take voters off the voting rolls, move polling stations at the last instant, use intimidation to scare 'those people' away from polling stations, use foreign help to run disinformation campaigns, and likely even 'adjust' vote counts.

1. He's the Campaign Manager! That's the kind of stuff he's supposed to say.

I think all of Orangeman's administration would say that stuff, even if they don't believe it. They'd be fired if they don't!

2. The art of the follow-up question

is lost on today's journalists. I would have immediately aske him if Trump would like to hold the election tomorrow.

6. Parscale is already planning how to steal the election.

“There are so many ways and different people who show up and vote now.” Like non-voters whose names are secretly added to voter rolls and subsequently vote for Republicans. Or Russian hackers who manipulate voter rolls, carefully kicking off Democrats with the help of people like Parscale. Or Republican election officials who move precincts at the last minute or close precincts to make it difficult for minorities to vote.

7. Starting the narrative

So when the voting magically swings against all polling and all exit poll data, there’s the impression that he was actually always ahead.

10. If I were Parscale I'd be much more worried about the popular vote;

Donnie is still major butt-hurt about losing the popular vote to a woman.

11. Of course he'd say that.

I don't even think this is news.

Let me know if a campaign manager says "we're fucked".

And put that to the test.

And shorten his presidency by that much.

14. Stay hyper vigilant...

because the Orange Anus and his band of cretins have a tendency to telegraph - the "fix" is more than likely already in play.

16. If you want to keep the paycheck rolling in, you tell Dear Leader what he wants to hear.

I bet Don is disappointed he can't take his pollsters to a sports stadium and take them out with an anti-aircraft missile the way his buddy Kim does.

17. Locking.

Posts in LBN are required to be “important news of national interest.” The forum hosts are locking this post on the basis that predictions by a candidate's campaign manager do not amount to important news of national interest. Plead feel free to repost in GD.
