Skip to comments.'Wild' Trump revives spirit of '16 -- but can it work a 2nd (and 3rd) time?

No one knows better than President Donald Trump what worked for him in 2016, and now he's going back to the well -- trusting no one but himself -- to stave off the threat of a Democratic rout in November that could cripple his presidency.
At a rowdy rally in Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday night that invigorated a crowd that booed Trump's enemies like it was a wrestling bout, the President showed exactly why he's itching to get back on the road for multiple rallies every day ahead of the midterm elections.
Trump will not be one of those presidents who only grudgingly tears himself away from the weighty affairs of state to campaign for party lawmakers. And if he suffers the traditional first-term bloody nose from midterm voters, it won't be because he didn't campaign hard enough.
"It's a lot easier to act presidential than to do what I do. Anybody can act presidential!" Trump declared, before tottering across the stage in a parody of a presidential walk, mocking the Oval Office conventions he has shredded since his inauguration, and admitting he likes to be a "little wild, have a little fun" at rallies....

Who knew that a billionaire could be so much fun?
He is entertaining and informative at the rallies.
In the case of the south....I think he could line up six arenas in three days, every single week. You just go and mention in Huntsville, Alabama that he might be showing up and 15,000 people will be asking where and what time. Pretty much the same case in Mississippi.
Trump knows his base...they are with him 100%...no matter what. You are about to witness a campaign like you have never seen before. Trump will do at least forty of these massive wild, positive, high turn out voter rallies. These Trumpster voters will go to vote by the millions. Democrats will not have an enjoyable, joyous election night..once more!!!
Depending on losers like Obama, Clinton, Biden to fire up the Democrat base is a lost cause. Obama hides in his Washington, DC, “Walled Mansion” rather then being on the campaign trail and, Hillary Clinton is simply insane. Case closed and, old, Joe biden is braindead!!!
Yes he does and his base will be out in droves to support their President Trump.
Notice how CNN never shows the size of the crowd at these events, not wanting to admit they are FULL to capacity?
This is the Quinnipiac Poll where I think they have TRUMP's Approval at only 39%
I believe Trump barely won the white woman vote in 2016, but in my blue state trashing Trump has become the most common attempted form of social bonding among women.
You can’t have any meeting or discussion or casual encounter without at least one woman virtue signalling by dumping on Trump—with other women rushing in to agree with and endorse the reference, statement or joke.
I have taken to calmly stating my support for Trump in any such situation. I figure it makes a difference.
Trump knows his base...they are with him 100%...no matter what.
Q has coined the meme for the President’s supporters - WWG1WGA. I’m waiting to see this message start sneaking into the Trump roadshow. Then, the media will really have meltdown.
As if Obozo didnt have a continuous campaign
None of Trump’s 15 or 16 opponents in the primaries came even close to attracting crowds all over the country, and that includes Jeb Bush & Ted Cruz.
The noise maker activists are not the majority. Women’s unemployment rate is at 65 year low. That is the voting block which counts in addition to married women raising kids.
This 'poll' is 1177 voters nationwide.
When you see this kind of 'poll' know that it uses 11% of it's sample from commiefornia, which is going almost 100% against Trump...rigged before they start counting.
I noticed yesterday most of the protesters in Tampa were women. What are they protesting? Don’t they understand GDP 4.1, low unemployment, a great economy.
The only “protests” I say was against Acosta, of CNN...the source of this article.
It was a sight to behold.
You are reaching, strengthening, and reassuring the myriad of voters who don’t want to provoke conflict but know at heart that POTUS is changing America for the better.
I always watch his rallies. The speeches are largely routine, but there’s almost always something new in each one. But, the thing I enjoy most is watching and listening to the reaction of the crowds. RSBN does a great job showing the crowds, before, during and after each event. Sometimes there transmission is a bit rough in spots, but overall they do a good job.
Last week I watched a Pence speech, and it was what you would expect from a career politician, rather boring by comparison to a Trump event, and nowhere near the crowd.
Maybe not nationally, but they sure are in my area.
The day Trump quotes Q is the day he begins to lose his base. I know because I am part of his base.
