The media already has declared the presidential race over and, in the process, is suppressing voters, Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, said Sunday.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Ms. Conway said the close relationship between some media outlets and the Hillary Clinton campaign has resulted in a host of stories claiming the White House contest is all but finished.

“We feel very frustrated. It’s not all members of the media. It’s not even most members of the media, but look at the stories being written now,” she said. “‘The path to 270 [electoral votes] is narrow, the path to 270 is over.’ That is so unfair to the voters who are yet to go to the ballot box and exercise their constitutional rights to tell us who should be president of the United States and commander in chief.

It takes 270 electoral votes to win the presidential election, and virtually all recent polls have shown Mrs. Clinton with a significant lead. Surveys also have shown the former first lady ahead in many battleground states, though polls show tight races in Florida, Ohio and other key states.

Meanwhile, the Clinton campaign is pushing its supporters to get the polls over the next several weeks during early voting periods.

“We’ve got to stay focused, and what’s important to us is we don’t want anybody to wake up after election day … and they didn’t have a chance to participate,” Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook told CNN on Sunday.
