(TheFreedomFlag.com)- According to a report from Politico, insiders in the Trump camp understand that the president knows he is on track to lose in November. The report claims that President Trump has told his closest advisers that he is “losing” and that his team is taking action to correct course and start reversing the polling trends that appear to be favoring presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
While polls at this point in the campaign in 2016 also suggested Trump was set to lose, the margins are bigger this time, and individual polls in swing states are particularly concerning. The report suggests that Trump’s team consider this the roughest point of his presidency and are working to win back favor from the electorate.
“Donald Trump knows he’s losing, the president has privately come to that grim realization in recent days,” an insider told Politico. More than half a dozen people close to the president told Politico that the Trump re-election team is now taking action to avoid a crushing November defeat.
Trump was widely believed to be sailing towards a second-term victory, powered by record economic growth and low unemployment – but the arrival of the Chinese coronavirus has seriously put that re-election in jeopardy. Combined with the sudden occurrence of Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots all over the country, which have yet to be contained, President Trump has recently started to look weak.
Meanwhile, all the Democrats have had to do is hide their candidate, Joe Biden, in the basement and wait for people to get angry at Trump for things that simply aren’t his fault.
Politico’s anonymous sources said that Trump’s recent interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News showed how the president was for the first time willing to concede the possibility of losing. In the interview, Trump said it was possible Biden is “gonna be your president because some people don’t love me, maybe.” That’s not very Trump-esque.
Most sources spoke to Politico under the condition of anonymity, but Sam Nunberg went on the record to say it wasn’t looking food for the president.
“Under the current trajectory, President Trump is on the precipice of one of the worst electoral defeats in modern presidential elections and the worst historically for an incumbent president,” he said.
However, since Trump reopened his rallies and appeared in front of a crowd in Tulsa, he is taken a “more hands-on role in the campaign.”
Trump has “expressed openness to adding more people to the team,” sources claim. The Trump re-election team has started focusing on battleground states, too, which show Biden is winning by handsome margins.
