Trump campaign adviser predicts Trump will win states he lost in 2016
David Bossie, the president of the conservative advocacy group Citizens United and an advisor to Donald Trump's reelection campaign, told Yahoo News on Tuesday he believes the president will win three states in the 2020 election that he narrowly lost in 2016 - and potentially clinch victory as a result.
Bossie, who was deputy chairman of Trump's successful 2016 campaign, was briefly ousted from the president's inner circle after allegations last year that he was using one of his political groups to profit off the president. But Bossie, who denies the charges, has recently been welcomed back to Trump's inner circle and appeared with the president's Capitol Hill allies at the House impeachment hearings and in other high-profile settings. A longtime Trump confidant, Bossie is serving as co-chairman of Trump's Maryland campaign team and speaks regularly with the president and his reelection team, he said.
In a Tuesday interview with the "Skullduggery" podcast, Bossie said Trump's campaign leadership is "really focused on the battleground states that are important and that are in a very good place to take that nine-week run to the finish line." Recent Yahoo News polling shows that while Biden did not get a post-convention bounce, the former vice president nonetheless leads Trump by 11 points nationally among registered voters.
Still, Bossie predicted that Trump will win in part by flipping states he narrowly lost last time.
"Nevada is definitely in play, Minnesota is 100 percent winnable, and New Hampshire," Bossie said. "All three of those states the president can and probably will win."
