Trump's top 2016 pollster: "It was literally about four counties in Florida, one county in Michigan"

Posted by  | Dec 5, 2016 

“When you really drill down on this election, change the vote in five counties, four in Florida, one in Michigan, we’d be having a totally opposite conversation right now,” said pollster Tony Fabrizio at a Harvard University forum.

“For all the money that was spent, for the all the effort that was made, literally four counties in Florida, one county in Michigan puts us at 261 [electoral] votes and makes Hillary Clinton the president. So, remember that.”

Those who have studied the election tallies closely say that he almost certainly was referring to Macomb in Michigan. Macomb is an obvious conclusion because the county gave Trump a 50,000-vote edge while the billionaire businessman pulled off his upset victory in the state by just 10,000 votes

In Florida it was a reference to four of these five: Lee County (Fort Myers), Pasco (Dade City), Polk (Bartow), Pinellas (Clearwater) and Volusia (Daytona Beach) all areas that were key in delivering his 1.2 percent margin of victory.
