"We have several different paths to victory," Kellyanne Conway said Sunday on ABC's "This Week."

"I would point out the growing number of stories just this week about the Clinton campaign, how she's being told just prepare for a landslide.  Wait -- you know, run out the clock. Don't go talk to the voters."

She's "thinking, 'Hey, I've got this one. I can win through many different paths through electoral map,'" Conway said.  

"And we're taking every state seriously. We're looking at -- we're just making investments just this week with absentee ballot outreach, with ads in about 10, 11, 12 states. Pennsylvania is one of them."

Conway said the Trump campaign is taking the state of Pennsylvania "very seriously." Still, she acknowledged it has supported the Democratic nominee in the past several elections.

"But we also know that Mr. Trump's message from the beginning has been particularly resonant among a lot of the working," Conway said.

"A lot of the workers who feel like they've been left behind in this economy."
