Obama Campaign Guru Says Trump Has “Less Than 0%” Chance of Winning PA (VIDEO)
The big headline out of Obama guru David Plouffe’s Meet the Press interview was his claim that Donald Trump is a “psychopath”.
If you only focused on that, however, you missed a bold prediction Plouffe made about the Keystone State.
The statement came when Plouffe and host Chuck Todd discussed the electoral landscape.
“I think Hillary Clinton is guaranteed at least 269 electoral votes, think about that, because Virginia and Colorado both campaigns I believe are put away,” Plouffe stated.
“Earlier this week you compared it to ‘84, you basically said this race is over we just don’t know the margin,” Todd interjected.
Plouffe responded that there was a 20% that it would be close but that the result would likely be a landslide.
“You look at every state. So in Pennsylvania, Donald Trump has less than zero percent chance of winning Pennsylvania,” Plouffe asserted.
PA is not a true battleground. Shows real discipline. https://t.co/nnSkQUqSe7

You have to be willing to win PA with less of a margin than you could to put max efforts in true battleground states https://t.co/ZOh29bujQf
