Kellyanne Conway: These Polls Modeling 2012 Voters Are Missing The Mark This Election

|

Donald Trump campaign manager tells 'Fox News Sunday' host Chris Wallace that polls using voter models based on 2012 are not accurately measuring Donald Trump's support among independent outsider voters.

"Some of these polls, if you're only using listed sample and you're identifying people who voted Republican in 2012, or voted Democrat in 2012, and you're not really bringing in people who haven't voted in a long time, the lapse voters or first-time voters who are truly enthusiastic about Donald Trump as an outsider trying to really shake up the system," she said.

KELLYANNE CONWAY: She's still under 50% everywhere, and she spent $66 million in ads, mostly negative politics of personal destruction ads, just in September, Chris.

So with all that on the field, we're just starting to increase some of our investments on the air. You'll see Mr. Trump there.

So the fact that it's been three points, four points, six points, is what can turn around in these next two weeks.

Our path is Florida, Ohio, Iowa, North Carolina. You add Nevada there, you protect Arizona and Georgia, you look at New Hampshire and Maine-two, where the congressional districts there are split in the way they award their electoral votes.

We're also going to continue to visit Colorado, Virginia, Pennsylvania.

So there are several different [paths]. A poll came out yesterday showing us six down in Michigan. We haven't even been there. We're not up on the air there.

The fact is that this race is not over. Many in the media want to say it's over for the 12th time, they're counting Donald Trump out.

I'm telling you that in some of these polls, if you're only using listed sample and you're identifying people who voted Republican in 2012, or voted Democrat in 2012, and you're not really bringing in people who haven't voted in a long time, the lapse voters or first-time voters who are truly enthusiastic about Donald Trump as an outsider trying to really shake up the system.

There are many people like that.

He's not -- we're not giving up. We know we can win this. And we are certainly not exceeding to the same chattering class that's been wrong about Donald Trump for about a year and a half.
