Donald Trump’s landfill inferno campaign is still in tatters, despite the fact that Team Trump has been trying to “professionalize” itself in recent weeks.
Politico this week asked several anonymous GOP insiders whether the Clinton campaign or the Trump campaign had a stronger ground game set up for the fall — and 92 percent of Republicans thought Clinton’s presidential campaign was stronger.
That’s not all, however: Several of the GOP insiders who talked to Politico painted a picture of abject panic about just how far behind Trump’s campaign is right now.
“The embodiment of chaos,” said a Pennsylvania Republican.
“A bunch of posers who get no respect,” said an Ohio Republican.
“As small as his hands,” said an Iowa Republican of the size of the Trump campaign’s presence in Iowa.
“There is exactly zero staff, zero campaign offices, and zero official campaign presence for Trump in Colorado, aside from a handful of red hats that individual supporters of the New York real estate developer have bought for themselves online,” a Colorado Republican told Politico.
“There is no Trump campaign,” said a New Hampshire Republican. “No field staff, no scheduled [door-knocking] operation, no developed volunteer network.”
Given that the Trump campaign is so short on cash, it’s hard to imagine it will be able to plug resources into building its operations in key swing states.
