Ben White: "Secret Trump Voters" Not Likely To Be A Big Enough Factor To Swing Election


Politico's Ben White talks about the advantages and disadvantages between presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

"The Clinton campaign... has to drive up big margins in urban areas, particularly in places like North Carolina," he said. "He's got a lot of strength, a lot of motivated supporters, particularly in rural areas among less educated white voters. A lot of them are going to turn out. The Clinton campaign is working hard now on turnout models, what the electorate is going to look like... she's got massive organization in these swing states. He doesn't."

"There is an intensity there, there is no question," he said about Trump supporters. "His rallies are huge, her's are not. But we don't know the extent to which that is going to translate on election day. We can't test it. So there is an unknown factor here that maybe there are these secret Trump voters that show up and blow away her advantage in places like Pennsylvania. I doubt that will happen."
