(PoliticalLookout.com)- The Democrats and the media might want you to think presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has the next election in the bag, but looking at new voter registrations presents a very different picture. Campaign data that was first reported by Axios shows the Trump campaign with a huge advantage over the Democrats, having successfully signed up thousands more new voters than the Democrats.
Much of the new voters signed up by the Trump campaign are in swing states, where we’re meant to believe Biden is leading.
Axios reports that the Trump campaign has signed up some 100,000 brand new voters ahead of the election. That’s double the number of new voters the Republicans signed up in 2016 during an election year where huge numbers of people were compelled to register as Republicans and register to vote specifically for Donald Trump.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Axios that enthusiasm for the president is still growing, and “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,” she said.
Polls show Biden with a substantial lead over President Donald Trump in swing states like Florida, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. But then again, the polls said that same thing about all those states – particularly Pennsylvania – in 2016.
Republicans campaigners have focused much of their efforts on signing up new voters in all these swing states, and since 2016, the Republicans have managed to register 133,000 more voters than the Democrats have in Pennsylvania. That’s in a state where the president won by just a matter of tens of thousands in 2016. In North Carolina, Republicans have registered 216,410 more voters than the Democrats, and in Florida, the party has an advantage of 87,000 new voters. This is all since 2016.
Four years of solid campaigning, along with keeping promises and building the strongest American economy in history (pre-COVID that is) should hopefully bode well for the president in November.
Now it just depends whether the Democrats succeed in implementing universal mail-in voting, and allowing the large-scale voter fraud that’s likely to come with that.
