In 2020, 'It's the Enthusiasm Stupid!' And Team Trump Seems to Know How to Generate It
PJ Media ^ | JUN 14, 2020 | STACEY LENNOX

There are good reasons President Trump is ready to get back on the road to do campaign events. It is his opportunity to do two things. First, he can speak directly to voters in his signature style which is part comedian and part policymaker. Second, his rallies tend to drive the news cycle, even if a station does not broadcast them. However, Team Trump has a different goal.

Team Trump has a legendary data program. Even Democrats have expressed concern over the campaign’s digital prowess and collection methods. Trump rallies are key to this strategy for a number of reasons. And according to Brad Parscale, it seems a return to the road is generating unprecedented enthusiasm.

This is for a rally in an arena that holds 19,000. If the campaign holds true to form, there will be large screens for those unable to get a seat to watch from outside. But the key to the operation is in Parscale’s tweet. It is the biggest data haul to date.

What does this data give them? The opportunity to register people who are interested in the rally to vote who are not already registered. The ability to contact these potential voters throughout the rest of the campaign with updates and fundraising efforts. The information to ensure absentee ballots and in-person voting happen right through the close of the polls on Election Day.

A whopping 68 people are watching Joe Biden’s recorded address for the Wisconsin Democrat Convention.

I've been feeling kind of bummed about some of these polls, even knowing that the pollsters can have their thumb on the scale. This makes me feel a little better.

If they use the data they're getting to sign people up as volunteers who'll go door to door, pass out literature, call up friends, like the Trump Facebook page etc. it could be huuuuge.

DNC/ MSM says that if following the Trump rallies , the attendees burn down and loot the surrounding businesses the risk factor drops to zero.

agree-the betting odds are the ones I watch (much more predictive than polls) and Trump was leading in those right through Covid , right thorough May until the protest and riots. Trump’s started out right, but then his tough talk but soft actions was the wrong combo-he started to make no distinctions between rioters and protesters-at least that is how the media played him on it-much better to talk soft, e.g. All for peaceful protest but not riots yada yada as he started but the tweets of “loot we shoot” were a political disaster (not saying its wrong but you’ve got to get relected to do anything) and you can see it almost to the day in the betting odds at RealClearPolitics-he has righted himself since then but you can see he went from leading Biden in all to a sharp shift in betting odds right at that juncture-he now trails Biden by about 5 in all betting odds. Good news is the election inst this month-he seems to have gotten better advice and now if he can jsut stop listening to Jared Kushner and tweet less.

For me....the thought of abolishing police departments does it.

And the fact no Dems condemn the violence. People can see these are peaceful protests.

The only thing that worries me is that the enthusiasm to defeat POTUS might be strong. It's hard to measure that by what people come out to support Biden.

If you look at graph the polls NEVER had POTUS leading Biden even back before Biden was the nominee and back when POTUS approval rating was 48/49% so...

that’s the polls, the betting odds see here https://www.realclearpolitics.com/elections/betting_odds/2020_president/

show he was winning right until the protester/riot discussion, then a sharp dive, and Biden is winning

Trump was winning in the betting odds, you are looking at the polls what is being referred to is the betting odds where people bet real money on who will win and are much more predictive betting odds here, Trump was w inning right through May 30th then disaster-to the day of his loot we shoot messages, these odds can turn around but he needs to be on message and less impulsive tweets-AND pray the economy comes back

Opinion polls are only feel-good mechanisms. People will vote for the President who has lead the country back to greatness. Another 4 more years!

There wasn’t a distinction between the two that was a lie, and most AMericans who have other ways to access news like online videos and even watching FNC saw what was really happening. If anything hurt him it was the fact he didn’t take charge and stop the riots. I understand why he couldn’t but most Americans are not for looting and violence. Most polls showed Americans were even for military action in the places that were being torn apart.
