It’s that time again when we kick-off the pre-election ground reports. With Treepers in every state, your information is actually a great insight into the political landscape.
Individual reports are obviously anecdotal; however, when they are compiled on a larger scale, and overlaid against the social media network we also follow, these ground reports have proven to be pretty darned accurate.
Recent state polling in Florida (not done by national media) shows President Trump with a considerable lead over Joe Biden. The stronger than 2016 support from Miami-Dade and the increase in Latino voters for President Trump are a significant factor. Local data and ground reality both support my own review that the Florida margin in 2020 is near the Ohio margin in 2016. Without large mail-in ballot manipulation the Harris-Biden ticket doesn’t stand a chance in Florida. It’s over.
EXAMPLE-2: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were in Phoenix, Arizona, and the lack of support was remarkable. A ground report from Phoenix aligns with the visible reality and highlights a true reflection avoided by MSM:
I live in Phoenix. I’d like to file the following report “on the ground” here in Arizona.
There are reports Joe Biden drew eight people in Phoenix when he visited here last Thursday.
The enthusiasm gap is staggering. There is very little real/organic support for Biden. Very few yard signs and very few Biden/Harris car bumper stickers. By contrast, there are hundreds and hundreds of old cars/pickups with Trump flags and American flags driving around. This morning, I saw a “Democrats for Trump” bumper sticker.
I have “coffee with the cops” whenever I can and the Democrat’s avowed support for Antifa/Anarchists has turned all the cops against Biden. They called his anti-police polices “bleep.” I can’t imagine any police union member supporting for him.
People here want a job not a government handout. Cindy McCain has zero support and virtually no influence.
My two boys recently graduated from ASU and were shocked by the college faculty’s attempt at liberal indoctrination. They just wanted to get a job after graduation. They will be voting for Trump (based on their own life experiences, not mine).
We the people are being sold a “bill of goods” about Biden the likes of which I’ve never seen or imagined. It is an epic crock.
God speed, patriots! (link)
All visible support for President Trump is genuinely organic, grassroots and easily identifiable as not being politically coordinated. Conversely all media-focused support for Joe Biden -used to frame the current election narrative- is transparently astroturf, inorganic and easily identified as being contrived. There truly is a remarkable and easily witnessed distinction.
Additionally, I see the COVID weaponization for political purposes as a net negative. No-one has ever won an election by relying on American voters to be stupid. We have our political differences but the DNA in our national blood carries a strong BS detector. Once people pay attention, in the aggregate Americans can tell when things are manipulated.
So here’s the question… What do you see in your area?
What is the visible situation from your community and how does that contrast or align with the national narrative you are seeing as promoted by media?
Ground reports are a great way to get a *sense* of the election.
