Changa said that she would not be surprised if Trump became the next US president, considering how the American electorate has shifted over the past several years.
"The conventional pollster wisdom and even the traditional way people ran campaigns could not account for the way in which Donald Trump has now become a major political force…going into the general election," she said during the Loud & Clear broadcast.
Changa believes that Trump could win because he is not taken seriously. Mainstream media, searching for clicks and profit, give him ‘unbridled' access while other Republican candidates refused to attack him, hoping they would pick up his support base after he dropped out.
As for Trump's phoenix-like comeback after polling very low against Clinton only two months ago, Changa suggests that it's primarily due to the Clinton campaign's inability to reach out to millennials.
"'Donald Trump is evil' is just not enough to motivate people," she said, adding, "If you want to reach people, especially in the time when folks feel like their voice is not even being heard or respected, you really do need to meet them where they are, instead of just continuing to say the same thing. I feel almost like the Clinton campaign and the Democrats are tone deaf."
Changa noted that over the last 7 years the Democrats have not changed their course, and seeing the US heading toward another election cycle with an unchanged policy platform is "disheartening."
"It just seems like we are in a new era and they are not adapting quickly enough. This should not be so difficult for one of the most notable politicians in history… She should not be struggling against Donald Trump right now," Changa said.
Changa offered that Clinton's struggles in the polls are indicative of her campaign's failure to offer a convincing alternative.
