As a new poll shows him potentially losing South Carolina, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has announced that he will be holding a rally in deep blue Connecticut, which hasn’t gone Republican since 1988.
WFSB Channel 3 reported:
The Republican party’s nominee for president is planning to make a campaign stop in Connecticut this weekend.
Donald Trump will be in the state for an event in Fairfield.
According to his website, it’s happening at the William H. Pitt Center on the campus of Sacred Heart University. The event starts at 7:30 p.m.
There have only been two polls taken of the state, and one of them was the dubiously pro-Trump modeled Quinnipiac, but Clinton is leading by an average of 7.5 points.
A new poll of South Carolina revealed that Trump is statistically tied in the red state. Recent polls show Trump losing in Georgia, but Donald Trump isn’t defending territory that he has to win to have any chance of being elected president.
Instead, Trump is sticking to his own belief that he is going to win blue states. Trump seems to be completely out of his mind. In his imagination, he is winning. While Hillary Clinton is expanding the map all around the country, Donald Trump is wasting time campaigning in a state that he is going to lose.
