Trump Confident in Election Victory: I Think We're 'Winning Big' in Florida
Donald Trump expressed confidence this morning that he'll defeat Hillary Clinton on November 8.
In a phone interview with Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum, Trump said he believes he will win "big" in Florida, acknowledging that he likely cannot win the White House without Florida's 29 electoral votes.
Trump said the polling places in Florida are "packed" with his supporters and the crowds for early voting are unprecedented.
"They're all wearing Trump hats, buttons [and] shirts. So I think that's generally good news, but you never know."
"I think we're doing really well all over. People want change," said Trump, pointing to a new IBD-TIPP national poll in which he leads by two points.
He argued that this poll was the "best" indicator of the election outcome in the last three presidential elections.
The RealClearPolitics average of polls shows Clinton ahead in the Sunshine State by four points, but Trump has dismissed many polls as being rigged or phony in recent weeks.
Trump agreed that he needs to focus on the issues and should stay away from discussing the recent allegations of sexual misconduct by numerous women.
But he said that he feels he needs to proclaim his innocence, labeling the stories told by the women as "made-up tales."
"This was all fantasy land. I do think I have an obligation to myself and my family to say I'm innocent," he said.
Trump likened the accusations to the allegedly coordinated effort by the Clinton campaign to incite violence at his Chicago rally earlier this year.
