Dick Morris to Fox: Trump, Hillary Have '50-50' Chance to Win

Political strategist Dick Morris told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" show Tuesday that despite Trump’s poor poll numbers, both he and Hillary have a “50-50” chance of winning come November.

Morris was on Fox to discuss his new book released this week, "Armageddon: How Trump Can Beat Hillary." In it Morris details his 20 years of serving as Hillary’s chief political advisor, and offers Trump a surprising game plan to win.

Morris, who has been advising Trump in an unofficial capacity, said that polls that have Trump trailing should not be discounted.

"Right now, in the last 10 days or two weeks in the wake of Hillary Clinton clinching the nomination, there's a Democratic trend and more people are saying they're Democrats," Morris said.

"More people who are Democrats answered the poll," Morris continued. "That'll even up in the next week or two. I wouldn't pay too much attention to it."

Morris told the program that he's advising Trump "informally," as that "means he doesn't pay me," he said with a laugh.

Still, he said Trump has an uphill battle and must fight Clinton with "both hands."

"The right jab Republicans always do, Obamacare, immigration, social issues we need those," said Morris.

"But what he's not doing enough of is the left hook. Going after the Bernie Sanders voters."

Further, he said that Trump needs to exploit the "gigantic rift" between the Clinton and Sanders voters.

"The key thing about the Brexit vote, Labor, the liberal member, the left and the right voted for Brexit in almost equal numbers," said Morris.

"This is the future of our politics. left and right aren't as important as insider and outsider and Trump needs to go after Hillary as not only a liberal, but the ultimate insider, the ultimate elitist."

Morris, a friend and adviser to Bill Clinton during his time as governor of Arkansas who became a political adviser to the White House after Clinton was elected president in 1992, believes Trump "absolutely" can defeat Clinton.

"The nice thing about Trump is that he can fix all of his problems by what he says," said Morris. "Hillary cannot fix her record by what she says. And in this book, we go through every possible thing about her record [that] people have forgotten and people under 40 never knew."

Morris said his book reports how Clinton was "almost indicted twice and skated on the merest of technicalities" and that she's "lied about everything in her life.”

“When I knew her, she was not obsessed with money. Now she seeks power in order to make money. This marriage went from being a romance to a pragmatic partnership to a RICO [Act]."

Morris is author of the new book "Armageddon: How Trump Can Beat Hillary"(Humanix) with Eileen McGann, out this week and available at both Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
