“The person who coined the term, ‘hidden, undercover Trump voter in 2016,’ there are even more of them, and they're even more committed now, and they're going to surprise you as to who they are this time,” Conway said in an interview released Wednesday by Showtime’s “The Circus.”

Conway cited a poll, seemingly one released in July from the libertarian Cato Institute, that reported 62 percent of Americans said they have political views they are afraid to share, led mostly by conservatives.

“But they express themselves at the ballot box,” Conway said after referencing the poll. 

The interview was conducted last week, during the Republican National Convention and during Conway’s final days at the White House. She announced ahead of the convention that she would depart from her position in the administration at the end of the month to focus on family matters. 

Asked by “The Circus” contributor Jennifer Palmieri if she “personally” believes in Trump, Conway responded, “I very much believe in America, and I think America needs a leader for a time such as this.”  

Conway also predicted that “a week after the conventions, the president will be way ahead.” 

The Democratic National Convention was held the week prior to the GOP’s.
