Conway: 'Scandalabra' Catching up to Clinton in the Polls

By    |   Thursday, 03 November 2016 11:17 AM

Hillary Clinton's campaign is turning negative as the polls tighten, thanks to the Democratic nominee's "scandalabra," Donald Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said Thursday.

Conway said the latest news about Clinton's use of a private email server and the controversy behind the Clinton Foundation are giving a clear view of what a Clinton "presidency would look like" if she wins next week's election.

"I just don't want Americans to feel, 'I don't know how this affects me, why should I care,'" Conway said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends" program. "You should care very much because you've already gotten a clear view into what Hillary Clinton's presidency would look like. Her administration. She's unfit and unqualified to be president."

The State Department, under Clinton, was used "as a concierge for foreign donations," said Conway, and the Clinton Foundation allowed foreign individuals to have access.

"I think there's a 100 percent chance that all this scandalabra is catching up with her in the polls," Conway said.

Clinton's numbers are not climbing, and she's gone "full-on negative," said Conway. "What it means for the voters is they are going to look at the closing arguments of these two candidates and Hillary Clinton has gone lower and lower and lower."

Even President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden are out campaigning for Clinton, she noted, because Democrats have had a structure in place over the past eight years, since she lost her first bid for the presidency, about how she would run.

"Focus groups, polling, message, how do we hide this information, how do we reach this group?" said Conway. "They are unprepared for the news of the day. So I think they are flailing. The Democratic messaging is all over the place and somehow somebody thinks it's a good idea to go after FBI Director James Comey. It's a terrible idea for her."

Meanwhile, the campaign is not giving up on the battleground states, and Conway denied that Pennsylvania will be the usual "fools gold" it normally is for Republicans.

"The latest polls have him 3 to 4 points there and internally we see the same thing," she said. "I always look at two things, which is, one, Hillary Clinton can't bust through that 45 percent, 46 percent. She's nowhere near where President Obama was with five days to go."

Conway, also appearing on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program, said Colorado and Pennsylvania have been doing well on the campaign's internal polls, and that's starting to be seen in public polling as well.

"If you try to apply conventional political wisdom to Donald Trump, you lose every time," said Conway. "The idea that, well, Michigan or Wisconsin have been elusive to Republican candidates. He's just different. His message on illegal immigration and trade and jobs and patriotism, he's just a different message. Just a different messenger. We see it resonating in Pennsylvania. I'll be in Pennsylvania later today with Melania Trump for a big speech."

She also argued that the Trump campaign appeals to women "substantively," and believe women care about security, whether on a personal or national level.

"Women are a product of their choices more than their circumstances today," said Conway. "I think it's a wonderful time to be a woman in the United States of America. To think that women have not been left behind many of them in the Obama/Biden presidency is false. The idea they'll message to women based on things that Donald Trump has said here and there and not look at the policies, look at his policies.'
