Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump predicted Friday that he can expand the electoral map into states like Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and possibly even New York, saying there will be “the largest turnout in the history of this country.”

“I’m going to win states that they never thought of winning,” Mr. Trump said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I mean, I think I have a chance of winning New York state, as an example.”

“Can you imagine if we ever won New York? Nobody even thinks about that when they do the polls,” he said. “Plus we’re going to win West Virginia big, we’re going to win Virginia, we’re going to win places that nobody else is going to win. We’re going to win New Jersey; we’re going to win Pennsylvania. We’re going to win Florida. We’re going to win Ohio.”

“We’re going to win places that a lot of people aren’t going to win, and the other thing is … we’re going to have the largest turnout in the history of this country, voter turnout in the history of the country,” Mr. Trump said.

“And most of those new people that have never voted before … are going to be voting for Trump,” he said. “Because they’re tired of being run and led by stupid people.”
