However, Georgia, Texas and South Carolina, which Trump comfortably won three years ago, have reliably voted Republican for several consecutive presidential cycles and may now be in play in part due to a rise in the proportion of black and Hispanic voters.
Parscale added that Minnesota, which Trump lost by 1.5 points in 2016, is “right there at the margin of error.”
“I think that’s a state we have to fight for,” he said.

Parscale dismissed the former vice president’s comments, telling CBS, “I don’t think we’re losing any of those states.”
Parscale, who ran Trump’s digital operation in 2016 when the campaign defied a mountain of polls showing a Clinton victory, slammed current surveys as “the fakest thing” and praised his own strategy as more accurate.
“I actually believe more in digital, the kind of AI technology we use … I don’t believe in traditional, head-to-head polling,” he said.
Internal polling by the Trump campaign this month showed the president far behind Biden in a number of key battleground states.
