President Trump’s campaign team has voiced optimism for his chances of victory in the upcoming presidential election. On Saturday, top campaign officials touted their position on several news outlets and announced they are in a much better position now than they were at this time in the 2016 election.
They believe their grassroots operations have gained momentum and influenced the shrinking deficit in the battle for the polls.
Several surrogates, including Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), have ramped up their attacks against presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden in recent weeks.
“I think it’s the price they’re going to make him pay. They’re going bring very radical people, people who promote having no police force. I think it’s crazy, it’s insane. I hope it’s enough that people will say they want some stability in this country.” – Rand Paul, U.S. Senator
The president’s campaign recently highlighted his bounce back in polling numbers after a slight dip, which previously put Biden over the edge.
The former vice president received a bump in the polls in both May and June amid coronavirus fears and nationwide outcry over the death of George Floyd. At his peak, Biden was leading President Trump by an average of 11 points.
However, more recent polls have shown him leading by a little more than six points.
Biden’s campaign team, along with several Democrat strategists, believe President Trump’s campaign has stabilized and will continue to close the gap leading up to Election Day.
“You know the old quote from Margret Thatcher: ‘First you win the argument, then you win the vote’? Well, right now I think Donald Trump is winning the argument with 2/3 of the people I’m talking to. I think, from a perspective of the people who would and who could determine the outcome of the election, that the energy is still with Donald Trump.” – Rich Thau, President of Engagious
The president and Joe Biden are expected to go head-to-head in a political debate after they officially receive nominations from their parties this month. According to Trump campaign officials, Biden will be a formidable opponent, having participated in debates for nearly 50 years.
The first presidential debate is scheduled to take place on September 29th.
