Trump campaign senior adviser Jason Miller told ABC’s “this week” that President Trump’s road to reelection includes holding Arizona, Georgia and North Carolina, and even acquiring Purple State Nevada.
Miller said on Sunday that the campaign was “very confident and very safe that we will win Arizona” and won more than 290 electoral votes on election night.
“Even if for some reason we didn’t have Arizona, we could pick off Nevada, a place that our modeling shows that we’re going to win on Tuesday, as well as Michigan, and that would put President Trump over the top,” Miller said. “We have multiple pathways.”
“We think that President Trump is going to hold all of the Sun Belt states that he won previously,” he said. “As you look to the upper Midwest, Joe Biden has to stop President Trump in four out of four states: Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. If President Trump wins just one of those in three of the four he won last time, he will be reelected president.”
Miller claimed that the Democrats will try to “steal” back to the election.
“Whatever kind of nonsense they try to pull off, we’re still going to have enough electoral votes to get President Trump reelected,” he said. “The fact that Joe Biden had to go back to Minnesota, a state that Republicans haven’t won since 1972, just the other day, shows how they’re worried about states shifting.”
Anita Dunn, a senior adviser to Biden’s campaign, was skeptical of Miller’s predictions of “this week”. He pointed out that Democrats joined Trump in 2016 in Georgia and Texas. States become more competitive.
“Our map has expanded as we’ve moved closer to Election Day,” Dunn said. The Trump campaign, obviously they’re going to say they feel good. … But if you look at the enormous enthusiasm that we’ve seen in the record-setting early-vote numbers, people are going to vote, and we are going to know on Election Day that a record number of people have probably turned out to vote in this election because they want change.”
