Kellyanne Conway: DeSantis should wait for 2028; biggest threat to Trump is third-party ‘spoiler’ from other party

The biggest threat to President Donald Trump is none other than a third-party presidential candidate.

“I think it’s all about the establishment: Democrats, Republicans, and a third-party spoiler from the other party,” Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, told “The Daily Signal” host host Stephen Gutowski during a Monday segment on the Republican Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.

Conway, who advises the president on domestic and foreign policy matters, said the third-party “spoiler” threat is real.

“I think there are a lot of people in this country who are really frustrated, and that means people are paying attention,” said Conway. “I think that people on the left, and people in the right, are really frustrated. They’re worried about inequality, they’re worried about the deficit and, in my view, we’re going to need to deal with these things. We have other issues to address and one of them is inequality.”

Conway spoke on the heels of the most recent polling report out Friday, which found that an overwhelming majority of those surveyed consider Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden the “most qualified and thoughtful” candidate to become president.

“I think the president is probably in a little bit of a better position now than he was just one month ago,” she said.

The most significant factor that has changed since March, according to Conway, is support for the president on the economy.

“One thing that’s been really striking to me in March was how many people were saying, I’m so sick of the president and everything he does, we don’t want him in the White House,” she said. “Now, he hasn’t done anything wrong. He has a winning record, he’s a Republican, and he’s in a great position. I think he’s been taken advantage of, but there’s been a change in the mood.”

Conway attributed the president’s support from the majority of Americans on the economy to voters’ deep concerns about economic inequality.
