Corey Lewandowski

by -
Campaign Manager

What is happening in the Trump campaign? Corey Lewandowski has been praised by Trump during the primary process, but now that the general election is heating up, Corey is out.

Trump is making a big move, and he needs to in order to win in November.

In a statement released by the Trump Campaign, they explain the termination.

“The Donald J. Trump Campaign for President, which has set a historic record in the Republican primary having received almost 14 million votes, has today announced that Corey Lewandowski will no longer be working with the campaign. The campaign is grateful to Corey for his hard work and dedication and we wish him the best in the future.”

Well, not much of an explanation.

Corey found himself in some hot water earlier this year when he was accused of manhandling a Breitbart reporter, but was cleared of all charges.

Corey did lead the most successful primary campaign in Republican history, but a different mentality is needed for the general election.

This is a tough position to change over in the middle of a campaign, but it is the right one for Trump.

In the time since Trump won the delegates needed back in early May, his numbers have been going down and he has not made that transition from a primary bully to a more presidential looking candidate.

June has seen the numbers drop significantly and Trump is not ready or set up for the general election. It’s time for new blood and it is good Trump is making the tough decisions to give him a better chance to win in November.

Do you think it was a good move to replace a campaign manger in the middle of an election? Let us know in the comments.

The Donald Trump campaign is breathing a sigh of relief today on news that Corey Lewandowski will not be prosecuted for assault on former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields.

On March 8, after a press conference at Trump National in Florida, Michelle Fields ran up to Trump and grabbed at this arm when Corey pulled her away.

She said that he almost took her to the ground, and then posted pictures online of bruises on her arm.

A different story came out when Trump, the owner of the building the incident occurred in, offered the video footage to the police to show what really happened.

After giving the footage to the police it was clear that there was no justification for charges against Corey, and today we find out they he will not be prosecuted.

Michelle Fields commented on Twitter when news started to seep out last night about Corey not being charged.

Michelle went on Megyn Kelly’s show last night on Fox News and said she will seriously consider civil charges if he is not charged criminally. So this whole thing might not be over.

What nobody is talking about is the fact that any other politician would have instantly fired their campaign manager if they had been in the same spot. Donald isn’t a politician and stood by Corey.

Now that the dust is settling, it looks like Donald made the right call. He didn’t abandon someone who has helped him get to where he is this election, and he didn’t let other people influence his decision. Something we haven’t seen in a politician in a long time.

Trump's Campaign Manager

Ex-Breitbart “reporter” Michelle Fields was successful in her ploy to get attention for an alleged assault from Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski.

Fields, who elbowed her way to get to the GOP frontrunner after a press conference (where she failed to ask the questions she wanted), was pulled away from the candidate by Corey in a press scrum.

Michelle Fields, who has claimed similar abuses in the past, filed a complaint with Juniper Police.

Following Juniper Police’s review of surveillance footage from Trump National, the law enforcement agency charged Lewandowski with Misdemeanor Assault.

The campaign manager turned himself into authorities at 10am this morning.

Watch the footage below that shows Corey pulling Fields away by her arm.

Battery?

The pollsters blew it again on Monday night.

According to the final poll by Quinnipac, Trump was supposed to win by seven points followed by Cruz, Rubio and Carson.

The winner was clearly botched.

Even the Princeton Election Consortium, that holds an astounding record of predicting elections, had Trump as the clear victor.

So what happened?

With hindsight, the results make sense.

Everything came down to the ground game . . . the extensive get-out-the-vote efforts that consultants say are the vital element of a successful campaign.

They were right.

Despite Donald Trump’s unconventional campaign where he was leading despite not taking the traditional campaign steps that have been part of “the game” for decades, the candidate was still gaining ground.

No one could reasonably call whether Trump’s unconventional take would result in a victory or a loss and the billionaire didn’t cover himself by developing a semi-competent ground game.

Instead, Trump showed a bit of arrogance and allowed his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, to continue to play the role of “yes man” and eschew the traditional efforts.

As a result, Cruz won by four points.

The Texas senator was also helped by Ben Carson’s campaign gaffe that could not have been delivered at a worse moment – somehow Carson allowed it to leak that he was headed to Florida for a “fresh set of clothes” just as Iowans began to Caucus.

Ridiculous.

While Cruz beat Trump, Rubio won the night with a strong, third place showing of 23%.

Turnout was expected to be high . . . but not THAT high.

The three top finishers, Cruz, Trump and Rubio, all received more votes than the 2012 winner, Rick Santorum.

The biggest loser of the night was without a doubt Jeb Bush. Only garnering 5,238 votes, the candidate’s air game was as effective as a no-fly zone over Syria.

Bush spent $2,884 per vote, which could very well be a record. In 2012, Rick Perry’s campaign was ridiculed for spending $62.11 per vote in New Hampshire.

The former Florida governor has relied heavily on television ads paid for by his SuperPAC. Those ads clearly made little difference as Bush finished in sixth place with 2.8% of the vote.

While Bush is a clear loser, his campaign consultants are winning big by pocketing millions of dollars of commissions in purchased airtime.

Going into New Hampshire, look for Donald Trump to reorganize his campaign, Cruz and Rubio to march forward with their game plans, and Bush to laughably lose even more money with a failed strategy.

Despite consistently polling above 30% in national polls, business mogul Donald Trump’s run for the Republican presidential nomination appears to be doomed.

According to top political insiders familiar with the inner workings of the campaign, the polls are a shell that has created a façade of optimism for Trump supporters and has kept the billionaire candidate far from reality about his real chances.

“Trump has kept himself in a self-imposed bubble surrounded by ‘yes’ men,” lamented the source who requested anonymity.

While media mentions and coverage are good for campaigns, ground efforts, data and the mechanics of running a national campaign carry equal weight.

Trump, advised by his inexperienced campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, has paid little to no attention to getting registered voters to show up at the polls.

The result of the inaction is on display at local gatherings of Trump supporters where it was disclosed that less than 10% of supporters are even registered to vote.

Those numbers should jolt a well-run campaign into panic mode, but the leader of Trump’s run, Lewandowski, appears to spend more time self-promoting and attacking on Twitter than he does managing the many moving parts of the organization.

“A campaign manager’s role is not to travel around with the candidate, tweeting and downing Red Bull’s,” stated the source, “They manage staff, crunch cast amounts of numbers each day and deploy strategies and techniques to garner more votes.”

Trump appears to have surrounded himself by types that reflect his demeanor but lack the experience and gravitas to boldly advise the candidate on the right actions to take and deploy them.

The Iowa Caucus is just a few weeks away and with Cruz gaining in the polls due to a hard fought ground game, Trump is unlikely to win the state or New Hampshire.

Unless Trump gets serious with his campaign and staff, after the South Carolina primary, Trump will be out of the running.

The candidate’s in-the-know supporters feel it’s time for Trump to drop his line on Lewandowski and bellow, “you’re fired!”
