Skip to comments.Yes, Virginia and Colorado are in play for Trump

I just posted shocking numbers out of North Carolina that show that white voters, and particularly white, working-class voters, are way over-performing in early voting. http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3899468/posts
Now check this out from Colorado and Virginia:
In 2016, per exit polls conducted by CNN, white voters cast 78% of all votes in Colorado. Breaking this 78% white vote down: whites with a college degree cast 45% of the total votes in 2016, while non-college whites cast 33% of Colorado votes.
In 2020, as of today, whites have cast 87%(!) of all the early votes. And this 87% broken down by education: 39% of white early voters have a college degree, while 48% are non-college educated.
In sum, in Colorado, the white share of the early vote electorate is currently 9 points higher than in 2016, and non-college educated whites went from being 8 points behind in voting in 2016 to 9 points ahead in 2020 early voting.
In 2016, per CNN exit polling, 67% of all voters in VA were white. Broken down by education, college-educated whites were 38% of the VA electorate, while non-college whites were 29%.
In 2020, currently 78%(!) of the early vote electorate is white: 35.6% college-educated whites, 42.5%(!) non-college whites. Let that sink in: white, working-class voters are up from 29% in 2016 to 42.5% of the VA early vote electorate as it stands today.
In sum, the white vote in VA is way up, the white working-class vote is way up, while the college-educated white vote is down. That is good news for Trump and down-ballot races in CO and VA.
Folks, the polls are not picking up this surge of white voters, and especially the surge of working-class white voters. Yes, VA and Colorado are in play.
I’m not going to keep my fingers crossed, but if it did happen it would be icing on the cake to probably the greatest night in GOP history.
Well, well, well. Let’s get the show going.
Please use the correct terminology. It’s not “college educated” it’s “college indoctrinated”.
Please use the correct terminology. Its not college educated its college indoctrinated.
My friend, you win “post of the day.” LOL. Very true.
HISTORIC! 31% of Black Voters Intend to Cast Their Vote for President Trump in Latest Poll
Rural Virginians love their guns. Their current governor’s hard anti-2A stance has got to be motivating a lot of people to vote GOP
Trump is advertising in western Washington State!
Trump is running up the vote totals.
“””Please use the correct terminology. Its not college educated its college indoctrinated.””””
So true. I ain’t never been to no college but I consider myself to be quite well educated.
I spent many years dealing with “educated” people who couldn’t think for themselves no matter what.
why is it safe to assume that this means votes for Trump and not Biden? Trump is in Fayetteville, NC today... Doesn't that mean it's too close in NC? i keep coming here to look for rays of light, but i am not seeing it as clearly as i hope to--by now--4 days before the election...
I have been volunteering in Virginia and have seen extraordinary hatred. I could go on and on. But even at the polling places just being at the Trump table has brought me insane attacks. I am not sure who will win my state, but I know the left is fueled by hatred. It is beyond anything I have ever seen. So sad.
Working class and rural voters will be overwhelmingly Trump voters in this election. They could fuel a red wave but only if they aren’t offset by the Karen vote from the burbs.
it will fall into the dems claiming the uneducated elected trump. so they will support re education camps.
I trust you are right but the best thing to do now is get even more Trump voters to the polls no matter who.
I live in northern Virginia. I hate to break it to you, but my area is INFESTED with bureaucratic Obama appointees (which Trump never removed). The state is still basically red, but it doesn’t matter as the northern counties of Fairfax, Louden and Prince William still vote their pocketbooks....DEMOCRAT. We didn’t even have a republican on the ticket in our most recent election.
Trump had four years to divest us of these vermin, but didn’t do so. He could have phased out their useless jobs, moved their jobs to blue states, anything but what he did...which was ignore them. Well, now it will come back and bite him in his derriere.
Yes, I voted Trump. I doubt it will matter here with our corrupt governor and state government.
Im hearing this sentiment from a lot of people in Albemarle. Northam’s antics are stirring up the hornet’s nest amongst people who tend to be very complacent/apathetic.
Thank you for getting involved!
