Schumer: Better Ground Game Will Put Democrats 'Over the Top' in November
On NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told host Chuck Todd that “economic issues, [a] better ground game, [and] better candidates will put us over the top in November.”

“First and foremost,” Schumer said, “economic issues predominate.  . . the average voter, every poll shows far and away, cares most about economic issues. They tend to be for the Democrats on economic issues like minimum wage, like equal pay for women, like not sending jobs overseas. Predominate.”

“Second,” Schumer claimed, “we have a much better ground game. You can add two to three points at a minimum. . . For each of those [ten contested swing] races. Just about every one of those races. So if it’s 44 -43, we’re probably ahead.”

“And third,” Schumer concluded,”as the race get down to the final moments, the voters focus on the two candidates. Not on the national referendum. When the two candidates are compared, almost inevitably, we do better.”
