"I think it helps us to be a little bit behind, and here we are."

Donald Trump's new campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, contended that low poll numbers for the Republican presidential nominee actually help the Republican nominee's chances.

"I think it helps us to be a little bit behind, and here we are," Conway said during an interview on CNN. "It lights a fire under us and reminds us what we need to do to get this done."

Conway continued to argue in favor of where the Trump campaign is at this point in what she referred to as a "change election":

We like our odds in this sense. We're the ones going out and giving these policy speeches; we're the ones talking to the press and not ignoring them. We're the ones who have the issues set in our favor, because at the end of the day, this is 2000, this is 2008 all over again.

Conway's bright optimism about Trump's low poll numbers stands in stark contrast to yesterday's CNN interview with Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who appeared to be ignoring the polls.

Cohen repeatedly asked, "Says who?" when CNN's Brianna Keilar mentioned Trump was down in the polls.
