Ahead of another visit to the state this weekend, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he sees his chances of winning Wisconsin improving
Speaking to host Jay Weber on WISN-AM radio this morning, Trump said recent polling shows his numbers are improving in the state. “You know, I was down a little bit in Wisconsin, which I’ve never understood, because of the crowds we have,” Trump said. “There’s a lot of love in Wisconsin.”
Trump said there are polls showing him “even or up” in Wisconsin, although he didn’t cite any specific results that show him ahead of Democrat Hillary Clinton in Wisconsin. The most recent Marquette University Law School poll had the GOP nominee trailing Democrat Hillary Clinton by two points among likely voters, which was withing the poll’s margin of error.
Trump will appear at a rally this weekend in Walworth County, along with U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), Governor Scott Walker, and U.S. Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI). Walker and Ryan have previously been critical of the nominee, but Trump says both have been “so supportive” of his campaign. “It’s been amazing,” Trump said.
