Trump will sweep Sun Belt states’ electoral votes

Speaking About News

Senior campaign adviser Jason Miller predicted that President Trump will sweep the Sun Belt states, propelling him to an Electoral College victory in Tuesday’s election.

ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos asked Miller if Trump would have to win the southern states he won in 2016 — Arizona, Georgia, Florida, Texas and North Carolina — to secure re-election.

“I said I believe that we’re going to win all of them. There are multiple pathways,” Miller said on “This Week.”

“You look at Arizona, where I’m very confident, very safe, that we’re going to win Arizona. But even if for some reason we didn’t have Arizona, we could pick off Nevada, a place where our modeling shows that we’re going to win on Tuesday, as well as Michigan,” Miller added.

“And that would put President Trump over the top. So we have multiple pathways we feel very good about where we’re going,” he said.

Miller said the demographics have changed since the 2016 election and the president has made significant inroads with those coalitions.

“President Trump is going to get well over 10 percent of the black vote. I think he’ll get over 20 percent of African-American men. President Trump will probably get 40 percent of the Latino vote,” Miller said. “The entire demographic shift within these parties. It’s a different world now, George, and that’s why we’re trying to turn out our supporters.”

Miller went on to predict that the president will have an insurmountable Electoral College lead over Joe Biden by Tuesday evening and that Democrats will try to “steal it back.”

Miller, citing “smart” Democrats, said they believe “President Trump will be ahead on election night, probably getting 280 electoral, somewhere in that range. And then they’re going to try to steal it back after the election.”

“We believe that it will be over 290 electoral votes on election night. So no matter what they tried to do, what kind of hijinks or lawsuits or whatever kind of nonsense they try to pull off, we’re still going to have enough electoral votes to get President Trump reelected,” he said.

Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton in 2016 but defeated her in the Electoral College, amassing 304 votes to Clinton’s 227.

It takes 270 electoral votes to win.
