With only a week remaining until the presidential election, GOP nominee Donald Trump has begun refocusing his campaign efforts in longtime Democrat strongholds in a final attempt to both secure support among disillusioned liberal voters and slap the smug confidence out of Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.
This decision was reportedly spurred by the announcement Friday by FBI Director James Comey that he was reopening the investigation into Democrat nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
That unexpected announcement provided Trump with “a fresh opportunity to make gains in states that most public polls have shown as out of reach,” according to The Washington Post.
Plus, a ABC/Washington Post poll published Sunday revealed that more than 30 percent of likely voters were less likely to support Clinton because of the FBI’s announcement, as reported by Fox News.
The GOP candidate would have had to be a fool to skip out on such an awesome opportunity to draw support from voters who were growing more and more fed-up with the former secretary of state’s endless lies and scandals.
As such, he held rallies Sunday in Colorado and New Mexico and was scheduled to make campaign stops in Michigan and Wisconsin during the upcoming week. The states Trump’s campaign cared most about however were the latter three, where President Barack Obama won in both 2008 and 2012.
Meanwhile, as Trump moved to dislodge voters from Clinton’s troubled campaign, the Democrat candidate herself was reportedly focused on drumming up support among minority voters — likely by peddling racial politics, as usual — in battleground states such as North Carolina, Florida and Ohio.
The Democrat nominee was also attacking Comey, essentially accusing him and the FBI of playing dirty politics.
Try as she might to thwart the FBI’s investigation, Clinton knew she was stuck in a very bad bind — one that Trump surely intends to use to his every advantage.
