Donald Trump Adviser: ‘It Will Take a Miracle for Us to Win’

CNN’s Jim Acosta is on location at the Trump campaign election party, and he had grim news about the GOP candidate:

An adviser from Donald Trump’s inner circle is sizing up the GOP candidate’s chances to me this way: “It will take a miracle for us to win.” That is a quote from a senior adviser from inside Trump’s inner circle. This adviser went on to say that Trump was in such a deep hole following the Access Hollywood tape. It was viewed inside the campaign that he was going to lose this race by a wide margin, but the fact that Donald Trump has been able to close that gap in the final weeks of this campaign — that is seen as a major accomplishment inside the campaign, one that might actually save the Senate for the Republican party.
