Republican National Committee Chariman Reince Priebus dropped a major prediction about where GOP nominee Donald Trump will be in the polls come Labor Day, and if he’s right, Hillary’s going to spend the holiday weekend weeping into her pillow.
According to Priebus, he expects Trump to either be tied with or ahead of the Democratic presidential nominee, so long as he continues down the path he’s currently on.
TheBlaze is reporting, Priebus praised the Manhattan billionaire, saying that “he’s been making very prepared, mature comments” on the campaign trial, which, he claimed, has resulted in more voters viewing him as presidential.
“It’s going to be important for us and for Donald Trump to continue down this measured path that he’s on, and if he does that, I think he’s going to be tied or ahead at or just after Labor Day,” Priebus predicted during a conference call with reporters.
“I think you see that on the national level, you see some of the national polls narrowing, some of the state polls are narrowing,” he said. “I think that what you’re seeing on the campaign is basically a continuation of a good couple of weeks that Donald Trump has had.”Priebus added that the RNC has “been cooperating even more with the Trump campaign over the past couple weeks” and that both entities have been “getting along.” “I feel pretty good about where we’re headed right now,” he said.
Trump definitely seems to have reeled himself in a bit during the last few speeches he’s delivered, showcasing a much more polished, presidential-like presence than he’s shown over the last year.
The more he combines this sort of professionalism with his natural take-no-prisoners, no-filter approach, the more appealing he becomes to those who are still on the fence about pulling the lever for The Donald come November.
While appearing more presidential obviously provides him with an opportunity to gain more support from voters, it also reduces the amount of ammunition Hillary can use against him in campaign ads and during debates, which is always a good thing.
