Trump: Press ‘Refusing to Report’ I’m Winning
Donald Trump called out the media on Monday for “refusing to report” that he is winning.
We are winning and the press is refusing to report it. Don't let them fool you- get out and vote! #DrainTheSwamp on November 8th!

The Hill reports:
Trump is trailing his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, both nationally and in most battleground states.
According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls nationally, Clinton has a 5.8-point lead over her Republican rival, 45 percent to 39.2 percent.
The polls-plus forecast on FiveThirtyEight shows Clinton with an 84 percent chance of winning the presidential race and predicts the Democratic nominee will get 327.7 electoral votes.
On Sunday, Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, acknowledged their team is falling behind.
Conway said Clinton has several advantages, including large ad buys and a series of high-profile surrogates who have been campaigning for her.
“Our advantage is that Donald Trump is just going to continue to take the case directly to the people,” Conway said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
In recent weeks, Trump has ramped up his claims that the election is being rigged against him. He has accused the media of working with Clinton’s campaign to secure a victory for the Democratic nominee and has warned of widespread voter fraud.
Earlier Monday, Trump tweeted that the Democrats are making up fake polls to “suppress” Trump voters.
“We are going to WIN,” he tweeted.
