Paul Bedard’s article is another in a lengthy list of articles that dig beneath the numbers put forth by the polls. That’s why it’s such worthwhile reading. Paul’s article starts by saying “In the 13 reelection events since returning to the campaign trail following his COVID-19 diagnosis, President Trump has attracted more than 167,000 rally goers, many of them first-time voters and even more who are not Republicans.” That’s an average of almost 13,000 people per event.

It continues, saying “According to GOP rally data posted by Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, the Trump airport campaign events strongly suggest that he is building out his base and that media reports the president is only talking to his core constituency are wrong.” I’m perfectly content if the MSM thinks that this is a fight of the Democrats’ base vs. the Republicans’ base. That isn’t the match-up that’s happening. That’s why most of the polls are wrong. On November 3, the MSM will be wrong again. Here’s what RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel tweeted recently:

This video featuring CNBC’s Steve Kornacki is definitely worth watching:

Don’t trust the polls. They’re as worthless as the initial COVID models were. Between the new voters registering and true moderate Democrats voting for Trump, this election has a shot at being a pretty good year for Republicans nationwide.
