This is an amazing testimonial for President Trump as well as a well deserved indictment for Democrats.
42.8% of Attendees at a recent Trump Rally in Ohio were not Republicans.
Too much winning?
RedState has more…
Brad Parscale, the manager of the Trump campaign, is very data-driven and, following most rallies, he reports statistics about the attendees. I have posted about this after previous rallies. On average, 23% of rally goers identify as Democrats. For Toledo, OH, this number was 21.9%.
The really stunning stat from this rally, which Parscale has never reported on before, is that 20.9% of attendees identified as Independents.
This means that 42.8% of the 22,927 voters were either a Democrat or an Independent. And that is excellent news for President Trump.
Prior to the 2016 election, pollsters considered Ohio to “lean Republican.” Heading into Election Day, the Real Clear Politics polling average showed Trump ahead by 2.2 points. Trump won the state by 8.13 points.
Ohio is considered to be a bellwether state. Ohio has voted for the winner in every presidential election since 1964. So, obviously, the state voted for Presidents Johnson, Carter, Clinton (twice) and Obama (twice). It is a purple state. Toledo itself is blue, but it’s surrounded by a sea of red. So where did all those Democrats come from? Some likely came from Michigan.
Parscale’s data shows that of the 22,927 voters at the rally, 18,210 were from Ohio. The city of Toledo lies on the Michigan border. So, the remaining 4,717 likely came from Michigan, a blue wall state.
Polling data leading up to the 2016 election showed Trump behind Clinton in Michigan by 5-7 points. He wound up winning the state by 10,704 votes out of a total of 4,548,382 cast, a razor-thin margin of .23%. However, to give you an idea of how blue the state is, Michigan’s 16 electoral votes have gone to the Democrat in the previous seven presidential elections. In 2012, Obama defeated Romney by a 9.5% margin.
I think the most important takeaway is not just that Independents and Democrats are supporting Trump, but let me ask you a question to further a point.
When have you seen anyone on the left host a rally which was attended by 22,927 people?
Maybe Obama did, but not these clowns.
Some have been semi-impressive, but no one draws crowds like Trump.
- Kamala Harris Draws Embarrassingly Small New Hampshire Crowd
- Warren Draws Impressive Crowd, Then She Saw Trump’s Crowd and Cried! Bye Pocahontas!
- Thousands of People Locked Out of Trump Rally as Hundreds of Seats in New Hampshire Arena Went Unfilled
- RED WAVE? Cleveland Trump Rally Outdraws 2016 Rally at Same Venue
- Photographic Proof: Numbers at Trump Rally Dwarf Those at Obama Event
People get locked out and left out of Trump rallies.
Name one single Democrat challenger that can say that?
OK you got me there. 45 people is quite impressive.
But we don’t know how many were there for autographs from Judge Judy, so that number might be a little inflated.
Ignore the media BS America.
I tell people all the time that America is at least 60-65% pro-Trump.
I actually think it might be higher IF you only count legal voters.
That might sound crazy but where are the missing asses for those empty seats Dems?
America knows the truth.
