They Waited 40+ Hours to See Trump. Democrats Should Be Very Scared.
Certain national polls indicate that no matter who wins the Democratic nomination next year, that person will sail to victory over President Donald Trump in the general election. This has emboldened the frontrunners and given them a sense of confidence, particularly those (Joe Biden) who believe they are already the nominee in all but name.
Those nominees might want to remember a little piece of history called the 2016 election, where every single poll on the face of the planet was predicting a Hillary Clinton blowout, landslide, monster victory. As we know, things turned out a little differently.
The election results surprised anyone who paid a lick of attention to the mainstream media, but they did not entirely come out of the blue. If you ignored that media and you ignored the polls, it would have been almost impossible to imagine that Trump wouldn’t have won that election. Sure, you might have missed the memo if you lived in Manhattan or downtown Detroit, but anyone who lived more than a mile outside a major metropolitan area could see the writing on the wall. Streets were lined with Trump signs and Trump flags. This guy was drawing thousands to his rallies while Clinton struggled to fill bingo halls throughout the south.
Even if you did turn in to the television, all you saw was nonstop Trump coverage. It may have been predominately negative, but it was coverage nonetheless. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews had a line that went, “Whenever someone is running a ‘STOP X’ campaign, bet on X.” It turned out he was one of the few prescient commentators. Trump dominated the conversation, he dominated the coverage, and he ultimately prevailed on election night.
And it very well could happen again.
Biden may be leading in the polls, but he’s not drawing thousands and thousands of people to his rallies. He is certainly not inspiring fans to wait for 42 HOURS in the heat and rain, the way supporters were lining up for Trump’s 2020 campaign announcement in Orlando.
“With tents, sleeping bags and coolers of water in tow, Donald Trump supporters began lining up early Monday for today’s campaign rally in Orlando, nearly two full days before the event,” reported the Orlando Sentinel. “Outside the Amway Center, where President Trump will officially kick off his 2020 re-election bid at 8 p.m., about two dozen people and counting had staked out a spot along Division Street as of Monday morning. The line had grown to about 50 as of 3 p.m. By 9:30 p.m., the line ballooned to about 250, with people snaked around to Central Boulevard.”
“This is the big one,” one supporter told the paper. “This is the mother of all rallies.”
This kind of excitement cannot be faked. It can’t be measured by the polls. It can’t properly be translated by talking heads on television.
It is real, it is authentic, and it is 100% all Donald Trump.
