Election HQ Trump's Texas Lead Shrinks to 3; Trump Says Media Touting 'Phony Polls'
The polls are painting a very tough picture for Donald Trump in his bid to win the White House.
Trump claimed in Florida that the media is touting "phony polls" that he claims over-sample Democrats and said in an interview on America's Newsroom today that he remains confident.
He declared that he will win "big" in Florida, despite the polling average giving Hillary Clinton a four-point advantage.
Earlier today, the Fox News election team adjusted its projected electoral map and moved Iowa from the "leans GOP" column to the "toss-up" column.
Texas and its 38 electoral votes are no longer considered a lock for Trump. Mitt Romney won the state by 16 points in 2012.
Joe Trippi said this morning that the University of Houston is not "in on the scam" and wants to be accurate.
Former Reagan-Bush campaign director Ed Rollins, who is co-chair of the Great America PAC, said he's seeing the same trends "everyplace."
"If the election were today, he'd lose and he'd lose big time. The reality is they know it," said Rollins, adding that Clinton has a "massive" organizational advantage and in TV ads.
He explained that Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway is a pollster and knows very well what the internal surveys look like.
