There are countless numbers of Donald Trump supporters who are afraid to come out and publically support him but will vote for him on Election Day, veteran Republican political consultant Roger Stone tells Newsmax TV.
"We've actually seen this empirically. If you use an automated poll — push one for Trump, push two for Clinton, push three for undecided — and you contrast those polls where a live operator is used, Trump does substantially three to four points better in the automated poll," Stone said Friday to Steve Malzberg on "America Talks Live."
"[That means] the average person does not want to tell a stranger that they're going to vote for Trump. Perhaps because it's not politically chic, it's not acceptable, it's not politically correct. So yes, there's an undervote for Trump."
Stone added that Trump’s presence in the race has seen groups of Americans who have not previousl been involved in politics suddenly emerging.
"In Florida, for example, in the Republican primary 375,000 more Republicans voted for Trump than voted for Romney in the primary. And when you examine those people they are people who did not vote four years ago or six years ago even," he said.
