Former counselor to former President Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway, has issued a massive ultimatum regarding the presidential election.

The Fox News contributor has backed the idea of early voting and mail-in voting after the former president had been against it for a long time.

But the realization that the party has to adapt in order to compete has begun to set in, and unless and until the laws are changed, she believes it is imperative that Republicans play by the same rules as Democrats.

“I don’t like early voting, but if this is the new normal, you adapt, or you die politically,” she said as she appeared on Friday on the HBO show “Real Time With Bill Maher.”

“I hope President Trump and Mrs. Trump will go and vote early in Florida on the first day they’re eligible to vote early,” she said. “Because when the lion roars, the others will follow. His voters will say, ‘Oh, well, now President Trump went early, I can too.’”

During a Fox Business segment in April, Conway gave her former boss some very good news with another former administration official, economist Larry Kudlow.

The host cited polling data showing the presumptive GOP nominee within striking distance of overtaking President Joe Biden in blue New York, which Conway said boded very well for the 45th president.

“What is going on is that Trump is actually expanding his coalition, core constituency, looks, feels different, larger and more diverse than in the past, 2016 and 2020. Why, Larry?” she began. “It includes more union households than in 2016 when that helped us win in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Ohio.

“It includes more Hispanics and African Americans. It includes more women. Excuse me, he beat the queen bee herself, the would-be first woman president, while the majority of the voters were female. We’ve been the majority of the electorate since 1964. Even if he gets 4 percent more, 3 percent more,” she said.

“That New York Times/Sienna poll showing Biden leading Trump in New York by 10 points, where Biden won by 23 last time. If it is half right, Biden is in trouble,” Conway predicted while going on to comment on Trump’s interaction with crowds in recent days at a Harlem bodega and at a construction site in midtown Manhattan before heading to court earlier Friday.

“See what Trump’s doing. He is doing something Joe Biden can’t do. Joe Biden can’t command a crowd. He can’t, he’s just low energy, no excitement whenever he shows up somewhere. What is ironic is this is the way Democrats like Barack Obama, particularly Bill Clinton, and even Jimmy Carter at the time all over Iowa would go through the crowd and shake hands with people directly. It’s been Trump at his rallies on the dais, with the teleprompter, above the people,” she said.

“I’m one small person, people run up to me from all places, all spaces, many different faces, ‘tell him we’re for him 100 percent,'” Conway continued. “Some people say I didn’t vote for him before but things are so bad, Biden is a real gift to Trump.

“I think also ironically, although he is stuck in the courtroom all day, he is on message. He is projecting strength, resilience, and perseverance, these great American qualities, but he is the guy with better plan on inflation, [the] economy. Not hike your taxes. Not do 44 percent cap gains tax. Many people predicted Trump would be king of debt. He is the king of growth,” she said.

Conway also asserted that the wave of illegal migrants entering the country from the south and the COVID-19 lockdown will assist in swinging more Hispanic voters to Trump in 2024.
