CBS News reports:
President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign manager predicted in an interview with CBS News that the president would win multiple swing states, including at least three he lost in 2016, if the presidential election were held this week.
Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign chief, said the president would win Georgia, Texas, North Carolina, Florida, South Carolina, New Hampshire, New Mexico and Nevada if the election were held this week.
All eight are considered to be up for grabs, to varying degrees, in 2020 and the latter three were all won by Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016. Trump won Florida by 1.2 percentage points and North Carolina by 3.6 points. Minnesota, a state Clinton won in 2016 by 1.5 points, is “right there at the margin of error,” Parscale said. “I think that’s a state we have to fight for.”
