The head of an Ohio-based political action committee believes that things are starting to look up for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in the Buckeye State.
According to a recent Real Clear Politics compilation of statewide presidential preference polls, Trump still trails Hillary Clinton by nearly five points in head-to-head polls.
When including the Libertarian and Green Party candidates, Trump actually does better – trailing only by four points.
Citizens for Community Values Action Chairman Phil Burress, says his Political Action Committee (PAC) has discovered that Trump just recently began to run TV ads in the state.
"Hillary's been running ads here for months,” Burress informed. “I think Trump is just now getting into the ring and starting to fight.”
He believes that Trump’s campaign is now headed in the right direction with a recent acquisition.
“I know Kelly Ann Conway – she's worked with the pro-family groups,” Burress shared. “She's running his campaign now. They just opened up 25 offices here in Ohio.”
Burress believes that after planting a good support team, Trump should be on the road to success by November.
“I think things are going to change,” the conservative leader expressed. “And quite frankly, I think Trump is just now starting to hit his stride."
Burress also stressed that the evangelical vote will be huge in Ohio.
"If Trump can get close like Bush did in 2004; the evangelicals will push Trump over the top – not because they like him so much – [but because] they really fear Hillary,” Burress concluded. “Everything from the NRA to religious freedom … you can kiss it all goodbye if Hillary gets elected."
