McEnany also predicted Trump will hold the states of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan that he captured four years ago. Polls show Trump behind in all three states.

"Our voters turn out on Election Day. Today is the day the American people speak and endorse President Trump," McEnany concluded.

Trump has consistently trailed in national and battleground state polls throughout the campaign but has closed the gap in key states including Florida, North Carolina, Arizona and Pennsylvania.

Trump trails Biden by less than 1 point in Florida and Arizona, while leading by 0.6 points in North Carolina, according to the RealClearPolitics index of polls.

Biden's lead has also shrunk in Pennsylvania down to 1.2 points in the RealClearPolitics average after Biden led by more than 4 points on average in mid-October.
