Donald Trump has once again slipped in the polls, and even a steady performance in Sunday’s debate does not appear to have rescued him — but he insists the massive crowds he’s drawing are proof he’s going to prove the pollsters wrong.
More than 15,000 supporters who packed a rally in Ocala, Florida, buoyed Mr. Trump’s spirits as he barnstormed across the Sunshine State.
The huge crowd, which has been a staple of his populist run, demonstrated that the political movement was going strong, the New York billionaire boasted to another packed house at his next stop in Lakeland.
“There is a movement going on,” he said. “It’s a choice between the pessimism of Hillary Clinton and the optimism of a moment powered by millions of people from all over the country. She’s been there for 30 years and hasn’t done anything but fail.”
Still, Mr. Trump lost ground in almost all the latest national and battleground polls.
