As He Continues to Fall in National Polls, Donald Trump Makes Huge Strategic Move

Following the release of the Trump Tapes, which showed Donald Trump bragging in 2005 about how he could sexually assault a woman and get away with it because he’s famous, Trump has seen gains he previously made in the polls deteriorate. Although Trump continues to claim at campaign rallies that he is leading in all polls and hedges his bets saying in one breath he’s going to win then setting up a scenario of blame of the media if he doesn’t, the move the campaign just made indicates that the Trump campaign realizes they are in trouble.

The Trump campaign is pulling all resources out of Virginia and reallocating them to other battleground states where he is competitive and has a chance of winning.

In doing so, Trump has essentially conceded that he will lose the state of Virginia, and the 13 electoral votes that come with it, to Hillary Clinton and her running mate Tim Kaine, who is a current senator from Virginia. Although Virginia is considered a battleground state, which means both candidates would typically fight for it, a recent poll showed the writing on the wall of Virginia being a long shot victory for Trump.

Earlier this month, Roanoke College conducted a poll which showed Hillary Clinton with a nine-point lead over Trump, 45-percent to 36-perecent.

It has not yet been disclosed where the reallocation of funds for the Trump campaign will be directed. The question is, will it make a difference in his quest to defeat his long-time friend, Hillary Clinton.
