Wisconsin Republican National Committeeman Tom Schreibel says he feels the race between President Trump and Joe Biden may be closer than polls currently suggest.
“If you look at the polling four years ago in how the national trends tracked compared to what the results were, I think that you have to use that same analysis and put some type of hedge within the poll,” he said. “I’ve never seen this type of intensity this early in a race prior to Labor Day driving around, and it’s only picking up even further as we get into the final stretch here.”
Schreibel, a partner at Michael Best Strategies and former chief of staff for U.S. Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, told WisPolitics.com’s DC Wrap he expects Trump to focus on moving the economy forward if he wins a second term in office.
If Trump loses, Schreibel anticipates the Republican Party will make changes that could reach as far as current GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel. But he added he didn’t expect the party to “take a 180 degree turn from where we’re at today” in that scenario.
