Well, what a change a few short weeks makes.
For instance, once upon a time, the democrats and Hillary Clinton had the typically blue state of Michigan firmly in the bag. But now?
Not so much now.
In fact, democrats are in somewhat of a panic about the state’s free-fall for red.
As Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus noted during a weekend interview on ABC’s “This Week,” the numbers aren’t nearly so steadfast for the left as they were at the start of Election 2016.
First, from host George Stephanopoulos to Priebus, as reported by Breitbart: “You’re obviously making a big play in Michigan. It seems like Donald Trump has turned away from your home state of Wisconsin. What’s going on in Michigan right now …?”
Priebus fired back, with an assessment of the poor job situation in Michigan and other Midwest points:
“As far as Michigan is concerned, I mean we have to look at our … data. And we went in – we go in with 3,000 samples a night. It matches polling. It’s an absolute toss-up.”
Priebus also made clear the same thing is occurring with polling in North Carolina, a state once thought solid for Clinton now seems to be leaning republican. He warned: “Early vote counts can be deceptive.
“Look at Iowa,” Priebus went on. “We’re behind in Iowa today in early vote. [But] no one actually thinks we’re going to lose Iowa.”
