Several sources familiar with the case are confirmed to ABC News that the campaign will share with some of its pollists after the leak, showing data lost by the president in key-must-win states based on internal voting done in end of March this year.
Veteran political polls Tony Fabrizio and John McLaughlin will remain as campaign investigators, according to someone close to the campaign.
The news follows a report from ABC News, which for the first time revealed internal figures from the Trump campaign's own poll, which the president subsequently had former Vice President Joe Biden with two digits in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The two states were critical of Trump's elections in 201
The leaked data also indicated that Biden led with seven points in Florida, where the president is set to officially start his 2020 campaign on Tuesday.
Trump and the campaign had repeatedly denied that such data existed, but when presented by ABC News with these numbers last week, the campaign confirmed the data and said in a statement that the numbers were old and that they have seen great fluctuations in Trump's favor.
"These laced figures are obsolete in campaign terms from the monthly poll that began in March before two major events occurred: the release of the summary of the Mueller report, which liberated the president and the beginning of the democratic candidates who define with their political message that is far to the left, "Trump campaign leader Brad Parscale told ABC News in the statement. "Since then, we have seen major fluctuations in the President's favor over the 17 states we have polled, based on the policies now in place by the Democrats. For example, the plan of free health care for illegal immigrants gives an 18 point swing to President Trump . "
Lawyer General William Barr's Special Council Specialist Robert Mueller study of Russian interference in the 2016 election was released on March 24. While the Trump campaign's full vote, which showed 17 states, was already on track, it was well on its way to four more days after the release of Barr's letter to the public. The study was conducted from March 15 to March 28.
During an exclusive interview with ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos, the president denied such a vote and said his internal numbers showed that he "wins everywhere".
"No one showed you these polls because these polls do not exist, George. These polls do not exist. I lose in 15 out of 17 states? These polls do not exist," Trump said.
"I just got a meeting with my poll, who – I honestly don't believe in polls, if you want to know the truth, you're just running a campaign and whatever – it's – but I've just had a meeting with someone who is a poll, and I win everywhere, so I do not know what you are talking about. "
