Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will hold a rally in Newtown, Pennsylvania this evening, his third and final event of the day.
Trump will speak from the Newtown Athletic Club Sports Training Center beginning at 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time. The event can be viewed in the embedded YouTube player via Right Side Broadcasting.
On Friday, Trump held back-to-back rallies in Fletcher, North Carolina and then in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. This is the beginning of Trump’s new schedule of doing three rallies per day, which he evidently plans to continue up until the end of the election.
During both of his speeches today, Trump assured his voters that he is going to win the election despite the polls showing him losing to Hillary Clinton. He compared the situation to Brexit, calling his campaign “Brexit Plus” and saying that pollsters can’t accurately measure the extent of his support. Despite this, Trump still touted the polls that do show him in the lead.
Trump also continued stating that the election is being rigged against him. He doesn’t seem to necessarily just be referring to voter fraud, as he said a big part of the rigging has to do with unfair media coverage. He made a similar statement during the final presidential debate this week, bringing up the biased media as a reason he may not necessarily accept the election result if he loses.
For some Trump supporters, these continued visits to Pennsylvania seem like a waste of time, as many pollsters feel that the state has already been lost to Hillary Clinton. She maintains a 6.2 point lead in Real Clear Politics’ Pennsylvania polling average, which is a bigger lead than Trump has over Clinton in Texas. FiveThirtyEight calculates that Trump has an 11.1 percent chance of winning Pennsylvania.
Trump will also be holding a rally in Virginia tomorrow, a state where his odds of winning are even lower. Hillary Clinton is ahead of Trump in Virginia polls by an average of 10 points, according to Real Clear Politics, and FiveThirtyEight calculates that he has a 6.6 percent chance of winning the state. Two states that are still tossups, though, are Ohio and Florida, and so Trump will be visiting them on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
