As the post-Labor Day campaign push begins, the political winds seem to be blowing against the Biden campaign.
And in one area in particular, the Biden campaign is being blown away by the much more energetic Trump campaign.
That’s why Joe Biden was furious to find out this news that all but sinks his campaign in this must-win state.
There is no other way to say it. Joe Biden is in trouble.
Every time a cop is shot, or a store is burned, or another night of violent rioting destroys another city block, Joe Biden loses another voter.
And over the last four months, that’s a lot of voters.
When added to Biden’s clear mental problems, failure to campaign effectively and the highly flawed running mate he chose in Kamala Harris, it looks like Joe Biden has snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
The only question to figure out was if Republicans, conservatives, libertarians, and independents would get excited for another four years of Donald Trump.
Sure, thousands show up at his rallies, and millions are giving to the campaign and pro-Donald Trump super PACs, but would these people vote? Or even register to vote?
Well, if the news out of Pennsylvania is any indication, the answer is a resounding YES.
According to new data reported by Politico and Fox News, there have been big changes in the Keystone state’s voter make-up in the four years since Donald Trump’s surprise victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.
And it’s good news for Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
The Pennsylvania GOPhas added just shy of 198,000 new registered voters to the books since 2016, while Democrats have gained a paltry 29,000.
While Democrats still outnumber Republicans by some 750,000 voters, the overall percentage of registered Democrats is down two percentsince September 2016, while the percentage of registered Republicans has risen from 38% to 39%.
Republicans have made the biggest net gains in the western part of the state, long considered a Democrat stronghold due to the heavy union voter base there.
Democrats in the state are meekly claiming they aren’t worried about the increase, even though Trump was already able to flip the state red in 2016, and these increases in GOP voters just make that more likely to happen again in November.
Republicans say they have benefitted greatly from the Trump campaign’s massive in-person canvassing program.
Meanwhile the Biden campaign has largely counted on a virtual approach due to the Communist Chinese-created COVID-19 pandemic.
Pennsylvania Republican Party Chairman Lawrence Tabas scoffed at the Democrat response, telling Politico he thought Democrats are just making excuses.
“If I were them, I would say that I think voter registration is some sort of a lagging issue. You would, too,” he remarked. “Having this additional edge of newly registered Republicans from the Democratic base, these are people who are going to vote in November. These people are committed.”
As new data continues to come in from Pennsylvania, Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan and even New York, it appears the question over GOP enthusiasm is being answered.
And the answer is at least for now pointing to a huge GOP victory in November.
