Kellyanne Conway Acknowledges Trump Is 'Behind' In The Polls

Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway on Sunday morning admitted that Trump is "behind" following a string of polls showing Hillary Clinton with a commanding lead in the presidential race.

"We are behind. She has some advantages," Conway said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

She said that Clinton has benefited from high profile surrogates like Bill Clinton, President Obama, and First Lady Michelle Obama.

Conway on Sunday touted a speech Trump gave on Saturday in which he laid out his policy priorities for the beginning of his presidency if he wins the election. But he began the speech by warning that he will sue the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct after the election.

When asked on CNN's "State of the Union" if she knew he would go after his accusers during his Saturday speech, Conway said that Trump has the authority to say what he wants.

"He delivers his own speeches. This is his candidacy. He's the guy who's running for the White House, and he has the privilege to say what he wants," she said.
