Skip to comments.Team Trump taps 'enthusiasm gap,' ground game in late swing-states push
Posted on 10/21/2020 8:03:05 PM PDT by 11th_VA
Trump campaign officials are counting on Republican voter-registration gains in key swing states and a massive ground game that has volunteers knocking on 3 million doors per week to overcome Democrat Joseph R. Bidens lead in public polls in the final two weeks of the race.
In Florida, Republicans aggressive voter-registration operation has narrowed Democrats advantage to 134,000 the lowest in more than 30 years and down from 327,000 in 2016. The GOP added 50,000 voters in the final two weeks alone before registration closed Oct. 5.
In Pennsylvania, the GOP has added 174,000 voters since 2016, while Democrats lost 31,000 registered voters. When President Barack Obama won the state in 2012, Democrats had an advantage of 1.13 million in party registration. Now thats down to 710,000.
In North Carolina, Republicans have gained 100,000 voters since 2016, while Democrats have lost about 136,000.
In Arizona, Republicans have added about 30,000 more voters than Democrats since mid-August.
Those trends are encouraging to Trump campaign officials because President Trump won all four states in 2016, despite facing bigger disadvantages in voter registration at the time. The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee continued their ground operations through the coronavirus pandemic, while Democrats largely pulled back in favor of digital outreach.
Republicans portion of the electorate has swung violently in Republicans favor since Election Day 2016 in nearly every battleground state, said Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien. Importantly, we have seen a surge in registrations in Republicans favor down the homestretch over the last few weeks and months of the campaign. ...

Yes! And my 3rd son just turned 18 in Octoberwhat an election to be his first! One more for Trump. Too bad its in CA
Now, all the poor folks who take a van or bus to the polls don't want to get on because of the Chicom Plague, there's nobody in the neighborhoods handing out walkin' around money, and the Dems are in a TOTAL, COMPLETE UTTER PANIC.
This is the fourth door knock we have received, although one was focus on the Republican candidate for a state Senate seat.
Time for the Dems to break out the Smokes for Votes!
My first son turned 18 last year so he’ll be voting for Trump. What at a great first vote!
Awesome - lots of ground game going on there in PA
Take a look at the Events page of the Trump campaign, there are hundreds of GOTV operations going on throughout the country. Not only is Trump working his ass off, but Pence is also too, usually drawing substantial crowds for a VP candidate, sometimes numbering in the thousands.
Good news, that means they will be prone to making mistakes,
Down ticket matters!
The Dems only chance is to do a total reverse course on the virus and sound the “all clear” to get their voters to the polls on election day.
They got burned by their own mass media virus propaganda—too late!
I’m not saying “don’t write off California,” but don’t write off California.
“to overcome Democrat Joseph R. Bidens lead in public polls”
I won’t! Baby steps. Change is coming to CA. People are waking up a bit.
They won’t let us go to school or Disneyland.
Them’s fightin’ words for us Californians! Many in SO Cal have season passes, and many in NO Cal go every year.
No Disneyland! The horror.
“and the Dems are in a TOTAL, COMPLETE UTTER PANIC. “
pretty much: they announced two months ago they would NO ground game and would do GOTV exclusively by digital/virtual ... that was insane, but they didn’t figure that out until a couple of weeks ago and now are trying to build a national ground game less than a month before the election, while the Trump campaign has been working on theirs for over three years ...
and speaking of panicking, now the Hunter laptop revelations are pouring gasoline on that fire ...
“They got burned by their own mass media virus propagandatoo late!”
totally ... their LIVs bought the COVID lies from the Pravada on the Potomac media hook, line, and sinker and are scared of their own shadows ... WAY too late for the media to reverse full course on that one at this point ...
If CA goes Trump, It would be a tidal wave, on top of a tsunami ... just sayin ...
Why no new Hunter releases before the debate? We were promised there is much more coming.
“If CA goes Trump, It would be a tidal wave, on top of a tsunami ... just sayin ...”
Yep. But go into the fight expecting to lose and you will.
Due to be released in the morning, IIRC.
