Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale Reveals the Strategy for Winning in 2020 ^ | February 2, 2020 | Beth Bauman

Posted on 02/02/2020 11:51:09 AM PST by Kaslin

As Democrats are focused on impeaching President Donald Trump, his campaign manager, Brad Parscale, and the rest of the team are focused on victory come November. According to Parscale, the Democrats' sham impeachment process has energized the president's base and helped them fundraise.

"[Impeachment is] bringing in so much money. The fundraising is out of this world. We raised $463 million last year, which is a record. The president is continuing to have a great fundraising month. Every metric we have shows the president up since this happened," Parscale told Fox News' Judge Jeanine Pirro.

The Trump Victory Campaign and the Republican National Committee know impeachment has energized and activated the base simply by looking at various metrics.

"We send out emails and ask people to fundraise off different items," he explained. "We can see the wallets open up over impeachment. Emails, text messages, communications about impeachment."

Right now the campaign has $200 million in the bank, which puts them far ahead of the game. Last time around, Trump's team didn't start fundraising until June of 2016.

In addition to successfully fundraising, the president is expanding his ground game, which gives him a greater advantage than in 2016.

"Our ground game operation is night and day. We are in 17 states. New Hampshire, Nevada, New Mexico, Minnesota. We are going to be ready in all the states," Parscale said. "We want to win back the House and we are working with the party."

Pirro asked an important question: why 17 states and how are they determined? The campaign manager said it's based on traditional swing states that they must win, like Ohio and Florida, with the addition of states the campaign wants to "sure up," like Arizona, where they're fairly certain they'll win but they want to make it certain.

"Then you have the expansion map, like Minnesota. Budget in all of 2016 to win Minnesota for the Trump campaign was $35,000. Now it's tens of millions," he said. "Think about that and we only lost that by 1.5 percent."

In addition to going after traditional swing states, the Trump campaign's map is expanding.

"We really able in 2016 because of budget and time constraints really go to new places like we were this time. Last time we had to give up on states like Virginia to move into Wisconsin. This time we don't have to do that as much. We have a much wider map we can do and I think you're seeing that, like the president going into New Mexico, New Hampshire... Nevada, Colorado," Parscale explained. "The states are still there. Several states the president lost in 2016 that are in a much better position for 2020 because of his policies. The number one policy in New Mexico is Chinese trade deals. The people of the state recognize that."

Remember voter data back in December showed Americans' confidence in President Trump is soaring because he's delivered on promises he made. He has successfully delivered on tax cuts, unemployment rates have hit a record low – especially for Hispanics and African Americans – and the Senate has successfully confirmed roughly 100 judges. Democrats can continue pushing impeachment but all they're doing is driving people to vote for the president come November.

Why does this guy reveal his strategies. Do football coaches do this?

He’s confident the Democrats are running on empty. They’re obsessed with hating Trump and far leftist policies.

Parscale isn’t giving away the store. Trump is doing what he’s supposed to be doing.

Few reveal; many do not. I remember the story about Knute Rockne at Notre Dame having a game with a school East of South Bend. The Irish were the best team in the nation at the time. A writer asked him if he thought it was fair for the other team since they had not been able to practice because of the weather, and had a two day train ride to ND. KR told the writer that yes, it seemed unfair, and here are the three plays we will run. ND only ran the three plays. The score was still lopsided as ND had the best players on the field. As a famous coach once told a writer, “It isn’t the exes and the ohs. It is the Jimmys and the Joes.” If I were Parscale I would not have done it unless it is a head fake.

He’s using the “Navy Method of Teaching”:

1. You tell ‘em what you’re gonna tell ‘em.
2. You tell it to ‘em.
3. You tell ‘em what you just told ‘em.

He’s educating the field organizations, state parties, and voters.

“Why does this guy reveal his strategies.”

Well, the RNC doesn’t have to worry about having their computers hacked for information, it is being handed out free.

Democrats could run to the right of Trump but they won’t. Oh well.

Bloomberg just might.

Bloomberg is pledging as much taxpayer money as he possibly can. The Democrats won’t accept him unless he tacks left. They are all about ideological purity these days.

How much did Hillary outspend Trump by in 2016?

Money isn't everything. Don't get over confident just because you have a ton of it.

Hillary believed her own press. Trump won because he had ideas, a great plane and swagger. Winning the Congress will take ideas,the right people running and lots of money. This is stating the obvious. KISS

Parscale has revealed about as much as a football coach saying that he plans to win by having his team score more points than their opponent. What Parscale says is obvious to political strategists as the thing to do and the thing already beibg done.

That’s quite a story. Similar tricks were used by the Allies in WW II to good effects against the Germans.
