Kellyanne Conway has only been Trump’s new campaign manager for a week.
In that time frame, she’s done several interviews and answered a lot of questions about the campaign.
It’s her interview with Channel 4 in the United Kingdom, however, that really has people talking.
When Conway was asked about Trump’s poor polling numbers, she said:
“No, they’re just cherry picked polling numbers that are put out there by media outlets that are bent on his destruction. Donald Trump performs consistently better in online polling where a human being is not talking to another human being about what he or she may do in the election.”
The reason, according to Conway, is that:
“It’s become socially desirable, if you’re a college educated person in the United States of America, to say that you’re against Donald Trump. The hidden Trump vote in this country is a very significant proposition.”
When she was asked about how many people are involved in the hidden effort, Conway refused to answer, adding, “I call it the hidden Trump voter but it’s real.”
Some don’t believe that Trump has an ‘undercover voter’ campaign:
I gotta laugh at all of this nonsense about undercover trump voters.

Where were all these "Trump undercover voters" in the primary when the polls were 99% right on Trump the whole time? Come on, man.

While others support her claims:
I agree. There are a lot of closet Trump supporters out there.

Richard Nixon referred to them as "silent majority". Old product new packaging. @thehill

While Conway has addressed the “hidden Trump voter” project, The Donald has yet to make any remarks on it.
