During a radio interview with John Catsimatidis that aired Sunday, Priebus said Trump’s chances of winning the election have improved as he becomes a more disciplined candidate.

“This is a change election,” he said. “And so the polls go up, while Donald Trump becomes steady. His message discipline has improved. He’s being consistent, mature, measured — all of those things give the electorate confidence. And so as the electorate gets confident in the change candidate, that’s when things improve for Donald Trump, and it’ll continue to get better.

“And I think that one of the biggest things with the debate tomorrow is that consistent, measured candidate on that stage — and I think that’s what you’re going to see from Donald Trump."
