From Jon Perr at PERRspectives:
When it comes to its electoral strategy, it’s not often that a presidential campaign gives the game away so easily. This week, new Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway did it twice. Last Sunday, she personally confirmed that Donald Trump’s laughable outreach to black voters wasn’t intended for African-Americans at all. “I live in a white community,” Conway explained, “I’m white. I was very moved by his comment.” Just three days later, she insisted her losing candidate was actually winning, all thanks to what she branded “the hidden Trump voter in the country.” Claiming their numbers are “very significant,” Ms. Conway suggested the campaign’s “Undercover Trump Voter” project would help these appalled or ashamed suburban whites overcome the social stigma of publicly backing the irredeemably racist Republican nominee:
“Donald Trump performs consistently better in online polling where a human being is not talking to another human being about what he or she may do in the election. It’s because it’s become socially desirable, if you’re a college educated person in the United States of America, to say that you’re against Donald Trump.”
These supposed undercover Trump voters, in other words, are simply too embarrassed to acknowledge they support The Donald. But while they feel compelled to lie to pollsters now, on November 8th their secret ballots will power Trump to a shocking upset victory.
