Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway acknowledged the Republican nominee’s latest dip in the polls.

“We are behind,” Conway said on Meet the Press.

Trump has fallen behind rival Hillary Clinton, who is up by double digits in some recent polls. Trump’s dip comes largely from disapproval of his treatment of women and his refusal to say whether he will accept the results of the election.

Conway said the shortfall in polls is due to Clinton’s other advantages over Trump.

“She has a former president, happens to be her husband, campaigning for her,” she said. “The current president and first lady, vice president—all more popular than she can hope to be. And she’s seen as the incumbent.”

Conway also walked back Trump’s threats from Saturday, when he said he would sue the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct. Multiple women over the last month have alleged Trump inappropriately touched or kissed them without consent in events spanning decades. Trump has repeatedly denied the claims.

“He’s just, I think, putting people on notice, that they can’t just falsely accuse them,” Conway said. “He has said, ‘None of this has happened, they’re all fabrications and lies.’”
