Fired Trump Aide Still Sees Victory

Former Trump political director Rick Wiley told Bloomberg that he still thinks Donald Trump will win the presidential election.

“Wiley said Republicans need to remember that the 2012 general election wasn’t a blow-out. If the GOP had turned out 400,000 more voters in three states combined—Ohio, Virginia, and Florida—Mitt Romney would’ve won, he said. Trump will capitalize on his crossover appeal with non-Republican voters and win battlegrounds ‘where everyone says he can’t.'”

Said Wiley: “The path exists. I firmly believe this guy’s going to win… The unwritten story is the enthusiasm gap.”
