Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has overhauled his election campaign team for the second time in two months, bringing in a new manager and CEO.

Pollster Kellyanne Conway becomes campaign manager and Stephen Bannon of Breitbart News the CEO. Paul Manafort remains as campaign chairman.

Trump told AP the new leaders were “terrific people ... They’re champs”. Trump has seen his poll ratings slip since the party conventions last month, BBC reported.

He trails Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton both nationally and in key battleground states. The latest shakeup comes just 82 days before the election.

Speaking to AP about Bannon, executive chairman of the politically conservative news and opinion website Breitbart, and Conway, Trump said, “I’ve known both of them for a long time. They’re terrific people, they’re winners, they’re champs, and we need to win it.”

But Trump appears to want to stand by the campaign style that won him the Republican nomination. He said on Tuesday: “You know, I am who I am. It’s me. I don’t want to change.
