Pollster and president of the Sen. Ted Cruz-aligned Super PAC “Keep the Promise,” Kellyanne Conway told Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon on Sirius XM that stressed the importance of the ground game and said her Super PAC has now knocked on more than 100,000 doors for Cruz in South Carolina. That doesn’t include what the campaign has done, she noted, since they cannot by law coordinate. While not disputing that Trump is the front-runner in S.C., Conway said she is curious to see what happens with Jeb Bush and some of the other candidates still in the back of the pack after the voting.
She also said that her internal polls predict Trump will win the South Carolina primary on Saturday.
Conway said her PAC is seeing a tighter three-man race right now between Rubio, Cruz and Trump as questions have arisen over numerous South Carolina polls flying around.
“Trump wins, but not by the dramatic margins that he got in New Hampshire, not by the dramatic margins that some of these polls show,” she said. Cruz and then Rubio appear poised to take second and third respectively, according to Conway.
Conway insists conservatives and insurgent candidates are now the dominant theme of this year’s politics and that won’t change. Speaking of the GOP, said Conway, “Conservatives are the mainstay of the party, now. They are the base not a wing of the party and if you take anything from 2016, it’s two things. One, illegal immigration has been elevated where it’s always been among the electorate to the candidates and number two, conservatives are not a wing of he party; they are he base of the party, and the establishment is in a crack-up trying to reckon with that.”
