Giuliani first responded to mounting concerns that various scandals are compromising the reputation of federal government agencies from the FBI to the IRS and Justice Department.
“Well, we have a corrupt government. I mean, there’s no question that the Obama Administration is corrupt,” Giuliani told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney.
Giuliani then reacted to concerns over the credibility of the polls in the 2016 presidential race.
“I don’t trust the polls, I mean, I was with him for the last four days, each rally for the last four days, the last one I was with him was in St. Augustine, Florida. A mile, two miles away there were anywhere from 5,000 to 10,000 people marching to get to the rally on time, we could only let 25,000 in. You compare that with her [Hillary Clinton] rally which we saw on television where they had about 30 people, I mean something’s going on.”
According to Giuliani those rallies reveal an enthusiasm for Trump that is not reflected in the polls.
“There’s an enthusiasm level for him I haven’t seen in any campaign I’ve ever been in for me or the five presidential campaigns I’ve campaigned for myself and four others.”
Because of that enthusiasm as well as allegations of a media bias by the Trump campaign, Giuliani sees Trump as winning states where the polls currently show Clinton as ahead but by a small margin.
“I believe we’re going to win a lot of the states that are within, anything within three or four points either way I believe he’s going to win. Because I think there’s at least a 3% or 4% swing factor for him both on the fact that the media’s made him into a demon so people want to say ‘I’m not voting for him,’ and number two he’s got a bigger enthusiasm factor than she has.”
