(Liberty Bell) – The Trump campaign and GOP have gained a very significant advantage over the Democrats in key swing states in the form of 100,000 new registered voters.
This is double their 2016 efforts, according to campaign data first reported by Axios.
The Daily Wire notes that this effort has helped the Republican Party cut voter deficits in states like Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Florida by tens of thousands of voters. Democrats still have more reigstered voters in these states overall, but this still marks a very significant advancement in the efforts to chip away at the Dems’ voting block.
“As enthusiasm for President Trump continues to grow, so does the Republican Party. Over 100,000 new voters are ready to cast their ballot for four more years of President Trump’s ‘Promises Made, Promises Kept’ agenda, and elect Republicans up and down the ballot on November 3rd,” Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Axios in a statement.
Trump is supposedly trailing behind presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Florida according to averages from FiveThirtyEight.
Biden leads Trump 49.5% to 43.1% in Pennsylvania while a much closer race in North Carolina shows Trump trailing Biden by just over 2 points; 46% to 48.1%. In Florida, meanwhile, Biden is beating out Trump in the polls by nearly 6 points, 49.8% to 44%. (These are the same polls that said Hillary would win, remember).
Since the 2016 election, however, Republicans have gained 133,000 more registered voters than Democrats in Pennsylvania, 216,410 more voters than Democrats in North Carolina, and 87,000 more voters than Democrats in Florida, according to data that Axios reviewed for their report.
This definitely indicates that Trump’s base is stronger and more enthusiastic than ever, something that the Democrats, with their corrupt and demented fallback candidate, simply does not have.
The Daily Wire notes:
A series of media appearances seems to have done little to bolster Trump’s numbers as Biden stays noticeably absent from the public, staying isolated and largely avoiding direct confrontations with the media while Trump suffers fallout from the coronavirus pandemic and the economic tailspin that heavy-handed lockdowns have put the United States in.
In his latest interview, Trump warned of future instability the pandemic may cause to the election in November because of a flood of mail-in ballots from voters who do not want to risk getting infected with COVID-19 at polling places.
“Now, because of the China virus, we’re supposed to stay home, send millions of ballots all over the country. Millions and millions,” Trump told Axios. “You know, you could have a case where this election won’t be decided on the evening of Nov. 3. This election could be decided two months later.”
“Lots of things will happen during that period of time, especially when you have tight margins. Lots of things can happen. There’s never been anything like this,” Trump continued, noting that his campaign is reviewing legal options to prevent mail-in voting which, unlike absentee voting, does not subject potential voters to a “process.”
