Today I read a report headlined" Obama discount race as a factor in the presidential election", in which there is the phrase " take that for granted". I don't fully understand it. Hope you can explain here!
Speaking in Indiana to reporters, Obama declined to set expectations on a margin of victory in that state. Clinton was spending the day campaigning in North Carolina.
"I think winning is winning, 50 plus one," Obama said. "Indiana is a very important state, so is North Carolina, we're not taking that for granted. There's no doubt it's close. We feel very strongly that our message of bringing change to Washington is going to resonate in Indiana."
In my understanding, the underlined means that Obama are confident that they will win in Indiana and their belief are based on maybe their efforts and what is really happening, which doesn't come from nowhere.
I am wondering whether my understanding is correct?
