Today’s Campaign Update, Part II
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
You may have been wondering why your support for Donald Trump has suddenly resulted in your being labeled a “white supremacist.” Doesn’t matter whether you happen to actually be white, or whether you are latino, black, male, female or one of the other mythical genders now being invented by the political left, if you support the sitting President of the United States of America, that means you will be labeled a “white supremacist” by the Democrats and our fake news media.
Don’t laugh at the notion that President Trump actually has Latino and Black supporters: A just-released Zogby poll shows the President’s support among those two demographics rising substantially in response to the ongoing “white supremacist” campaign. According to Zogby, 28% of registered Black voters and fully 49% of registered Latinos approve of Trump’s job performance.
Which of course is one more reason why the Democrats and their media toadies are frantically attempting to marginalize you as being some sort of inhuman monster. If the President were to win just 30% of Latino votes (he won 28% in 2016) and maybe 12% of the Black vote (he got 6% in 2016) next year, he will be re-elected in a massive landslide, and sweep in new, larger majorities in both houses of congress with him.
The Democrats cannot countenance that, so they believe they can counteract that growing public approval rating by labeling the President as a hater of Latinos and Blacks. But because ordinary Americans are not nearly as stupid as Democrats invariably assume them to be, this transparently cynical strategy is backfiring.
If you can remember all the way back to last week, Democrat members of congress and presidential candidates like Joaquin Castro (a guy who doxxes his own supporters), the pathetic Irish Bob O’Rourke, and Spartacus Booker rushed to argue that because Trump was a racist bigot who literally caused the mass shootings in Dayton and El Paso, why, that means he simply must cancel all future rallies like the one we saw Thursday night in New Hampshire.
Why do you suppose they would make such an outlandishly laughable leap of logic? Because they know just how effective those rallies happen to be, and understand how critical they are to the President’s chances of being re-elected. Other than his Twitter feed, those rallies are the only means President Trump has of cutting through the fake news media fog and talking directly to the American people.
But, you might be thinking, how does that work, since the only media outlet that televises the rallies is Fox News? New York Times best-selling author Larry Schweikart answered that question in his book – co-authored with Joel Pollak – “How Trump Won”:
As @joelpollak and I wrote in "How Trump Won," the main value of the rallies was NOT Trump speaking to those in attendance but the local news coverage into large regions that allowed Trump to get his message out in short bursts without national anti-Trump "panels" commenting.

[I’m not active on Twitter anymore, but if you are and you aren’t following @LarrySchweikart and @joelpollak, you are missing out.]
Note what Larry says in that tweet: “the main value of the rallies was NOT Trump speaking to those in attendance but the local news coverage into large regions that allowed Trump to get his message out in short bursts without national anti-Trump ‘panels’ commenting.” Bingo.
The President doesn’t really care that CNN and MSNBC don’t televise his rallies, in part because their audiences are rapidly shrinking since their “muh Russia collusion” narrative crashed up on the shoals of the Mueller Report, and in part because anyone watching those two fake news networks is already completely brainwashed anyway.
What Trump cares about is that he spoke to 12,000 New Hampshire voters Thursday night, and anyone who draws a crowd of 12,000 in New Hampshire is going to get gobs of coverage on every local newscast in the state. That coverage is going to largely consist of out-takes of key messages from his speech. That is an incredibly valuable means of influencing hundreds of thousands more potential voters.
Note also that, while Schweikart and Pollak say the local coverage is the “main value” of the rallies, they do not say that the attendance at the rallies is not important as well. Quite the contrary: The President spoke to more individual voters in that arena last night than any of the Democrat candidates have spoken to through the course of their entire campaigns at this point.
Even more valuable, every one of those 12,000 potential voters left that arena pumped up and ready to go try to convince their friends and family to vote for Trump. They’ll all be talking for weeks and months about the excitement he generated in that arena.
So, you wonder why you are suddenly being labeled a “white supremacist,” an inhuman monster who must be shunned and punished? It’s because if you are just a regular patriotic American who loves your country and wants it to be great again, then the Democrats have literally no hope of defeating you and President Trump in 2020.
It really is that simple.
That is all.
