But, former President Barack Obama’s campaign manager, David Plouffe, says he thinks Trump will manage to turn out his supporters on election day at a “historical” level.
“That makes him very dangerous if you’re Joe Biden,” Plouffe said on the “Fox News Rundown” podcast on Thursday.
“You look at the economic situation and say, ‘How can an incumbent win in that?’ But, you know, no one’s blaming Trump for the damage,” he said, adding, “I think if you can lay his crisis response at his feet and connect that to the economy, I do think that’s some headwind he’s got to run into.”
However, Plouffe added that he thinks Trump’s base is “so solid” that they will come out to the polls to support him.”
“I think he’s going to turn out voters almost at a historical level on his behalf, so that makes him very dangerous if you’re Joe Biden.”
Plouffe’s comments come as the latest average of polls shows Biden leading Trump by more than 6-points.
However, Trump’s approval ratings have returned to record highs as more Americans say they approve of this response to the coronavirus outbreak, as IJR has previously reported.
Additionally, other polls have found that Biden is in a dead heat with Trump.
