As of today , Parscale says Trump would win in " electoral landslide ". Trump 's most devastating poll number is the majority of Americans vowing to vote against him.

Donald Trump clinched the presidency Monday as members of the electoral college cast ballots declaring him the victor, a perfunctory Trump has dismissed the intelligence community’s analysis of Russia’s role in the election and has boasted, including on Monday, of a “historic” electoral landslide .

President Trump's campaign manager Brad Parscale is predicting Mr. Trump will win even more electoral votes than in 2016 -- "an electoral landslide" -- dismissing independent polling that shows the president trailing top Democrats.

Parscale made the comments in an interview with CBS News chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett, hours ahead of Mr. Trump's reelection launch rally in Orlando.

Oregon governor signs bill granting state's electoral votes to national popular vote winner

Oregon governor signs bill granting state's electoral votes to national popular vote winner Oregon Democratic Gov. Kate Brown signed a bill Wednesday that would grant the state's electoral college votes to the winner of the national popular vote, her office confirmed. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Oregon is the 15th state to join the National Popular State compact, an agreement established by each participating states' laws to put its electoral votes toward the winner of the national popular vote, instead of the state's own popular vote.

Trump literally won because his voters were better distributed throughout the USA than Clinton’s were. Large differences in the electoral college totals I would not say that he won in a landslide . The last landslide election we had was 1984 when Ronald Reagan won 49 states, and beat Walter Mondale

8, when Trump won 306 electoral votes, despite losing the national popular vote to Hillary Clinton by nearly 3 million. And on Monday, the result was ratified by Electoral On Monday night, Trump issued a statement saying , " today marks a historic electoral landslide victory in our nation's democracy."

"I think we win Florida, yeah," Parscale told Garrett. "I think we win in an electoral landslide as of today."

Asked to define an electoral landslide, Parscale responded, "I think even more electoral points than he did last time." Mr. Trump won 306 electoral votes in 2016 (though two faithless electors declined to cast their votes for him, leaving him with 304 officially). A candidate needs 270 electoral votes to win the presidential election.

Mr. Trump has declared reported internal polls that show him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden in key states, Florida included, non-existent, or inaccurate. Parscale declined to comment on the polling controversy — including the firing of pollsters amid leaks of internal polling details to the media — but cast doubt on all polling on the 2020 campaign. Parscale insists current methodology is unable to accurately capture the sentiment and likely voting habits of the American populace.

Trump camp says leaked internal polls showing Biden ahead are ‘ancient’ and ‘meaningless’

Donald Trump won enough electoral votes on Election Day to become president. But he and his staff have been trying to make clear that they didn’t just win — they say they steamrolled Hillary Clinton. "We had a massive landslide victory, as you know, in the Electoral College

"I just think the country is too complex now to call a couple hundred people and ask them what they think," Parscale said. "There are so many ways and different people who show up and vote now. The way turnout works now. The abilities we have now to turn out voters. The polling can't understand that. And that's why the polling was so wrong in 2016. It was 100% wrong. Nobody got it right -- not one public poll. The reason why -- it's not 1962 anymore."

Parscale's sentiment about polls echoes his boss, who often expresses similar doubts, particularly when the polls cast him in a negative light. As Mr. Trump often says, few predicted his victory in 2016.

"The Fake News has never been more dishonest than it is today. Thank goodness we can fight back on Social Media," Mr. Trump tweeted last week. "Their new weapon of choice is Fake Polling, sometimes referred to as Suppression Polls (they suppress the numbers). Had it in 2016, but this is worse....."

Mr. Trump's reelection rally in Orlando is expected to draw tens of thousands of supporters, with some lining up as early as Monday morning to secure a good spot. The rally kicks off at 8 p.m.

Look for more of Garrett's interview with Parscale on "CBS Evening News," airing 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, and "CBS This Morning," airing 7 a.m. Wednesday.
