Ground Reports #2 – Voting Begins: What is Happening in Your Area?…

This is the second in our series of CTH 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.  Early voting has begun.  If you have voted in person feel free to share your experience.

President Trump is surging at precisely the right moment.  Momentum is building and you can see all across social media platforms the MAGA movement is pushing back against censorship.  Massive boat parades and incredible vehicle parades both replete with flags and banners supporting our President.

Yard signs/banners are now out in force and the MAGA gear is visible everywhere. In the past week the latest viral platform videos are of Trump dancing; Trumpy dance and Tik-Tok duets. Good stuff.  The biggest single attribute connecting all of these visible events is joy, fellowship and the visible spirit of a patriotic movement happy to stand with President Trump.

Tens-of-thousands for rallies and Trump events; and even surrogates for President Trump are drawing exponentially larger crowds than the democrat candidates.

The monster vote is awake and alive.

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.

We have the best candidate. We have the best message. Our color-blind movement is optimistic and filled with patriotic joy. Massive numbers of Latinos; massive numbers of blacks; massive numbers of young voters.  The confidence level is high.

Our opposition is shallow, reliant upon astroturf and media manipulation. Ignore the narrative engineers and join in fellowship. Live your best life.  Put out the signs; wear the gear; engage with everyone; be openly optimistic and rally to the standard. We have got this if we want it…

Deserve MAGA victory !!  Get your ass in the game, get serious, get everyone involved and register those who never voted before; remind everyone, and drive the MONSTER VOTE !!

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?

How does the turnout look?  What are you seeing in/around your neighborhood and polling place?   If you have early voted in-person, what was turnout like?

Ground reports are a great way to get a *sense* of the election.

    Living in a liberal suburb in Utah. Seen a few Trump signs but lots for local liberal candidate who lives in the neighborhood. Utah is in the bag for Trump, but I wanted to post an update on the #s I am seeing out of Florida. Latest University of North Florida pollster showed indicated that Republicans would be losing the early in person vote by 16%. Instead, republicans currently are WINNING by 10% for a full 26% swing vs expectations. Also, today for the first time, Democratic vote margin actually went down to only 460K votes. If I were a betting man, I would say Florida goes bigger for Trump than 2016.

      In the late 60s/early 70s when I lived on the Wasatch Front the Democrats were running a very effective ground game, from Utah State down the range to U of U they had organizers on the campuses that coordinated with community organizers.

      There were meetings in members’ homes where strategy was planned, assignments were made and individual functions assigned. It was all quite well coordinated and we were always suspicious that the top management was from outside of the state as planning and resources exceeded what we’d seen previously.

      As most elections then were more or less controlled and decided by ‘You Know Who’ in the Utah power structure there was little difference between the political standings of Democrat or Republican electees at the national level, Democratic then-Senator Moss was more conservative than most out-of-state Democratic Senators of the time and when Orrin Hatch replaced him there was little difference in policy. We voted but others actually controlled policy.

      Utah’s become decidedly bluer over the decades thanks to in-migration but it looks like the red forces are digging in and holding ground – good luck to you all.

    Hilton Head Island S.C. – it appears there are lines of people for in person early voting. Trump supporters are driving cars and trucks with American and Trump flags. There are lots of political ads and mailings from both parties. Local newspaper shows extreme bias towards Democrat candidates. I got numerous calls to participate in polling, I declined. I received a call from a woman saying she is voting for Jamie Harrison for Senate and asked who I am voting for. Perhaps she was unaware we have secret ballots.

      Son in law voted early absentee in person in Beaufort. He said lines have been very long every day and Jamie Harrison and Biden ads saturating and are on every single tv, including roku channels for a month. There are no channels in this market not in the tank for Biden/Cunningham and Harrison.
      Neighborhoods are mixed by neighborhood depending where in the area one looks.
      Overwhelmingly minority in the early voting location on John Galt. Hours long every day.
      Clyburn’s influence very very heavy in this area.
      Get outside of Beaufort it’s another situation entirely. Haven’t seen the latest on the Graham race, but he has been under water in parts of Beaufort but not because of what the pollsters would tell you-it’s because he let our President down for the first 3+ yrs of his term.

    Voted Weds. We live in a small West Texas town between Abilene and Lubbock. As we parked to go in to vote a young Hispanic male came by our car. He was smiling and I noticed he had a Trump hat on, so I gave him a thumbs up. As we got out, he started saying, I voted, I voted. We thanked him and commented on his hat. He then wanted to show us his Trump flag. It was bigger than his truck. We did not have a line but business was steady. Gave us both a good feeling. God Bless and Think Positive.

    Anne Arundel Co., MD. Early voting does not start until October 26 and runs through November 2. Previously it started earlier with a break between the last EV day and Election Day. Also, instead of dedicated precincts any county voter can vote in any Election Day location in the county. I normally make it a habit to vote on Election Day, but I will have to vote early because I will have judging duties Nov. 3.

    Anecdotally we saw a friend who lives in Baltimore who mentioned a local news story about a security guard being shot while guarding a ballot drop box. The friend said it was reported as a “robbery gone wrong” and for some reason Seth Rich came to mind. Not sure why 🙄.

    Corona Mania continues unabated here. The RINO governor succeeded in scaring everyone the first 4-5 months, and now he faces backlash for wanting to reopen. A recent development is the teachers and the teacher’s union who previously declared we wanted to kill them and the students now suddenly want schools to reopen. A survey of county teachers found at least 60 percent want to go back. Guessing the threat of funding being pulled may have been a contributing factor. However, because the governor and the schools were so successful in scaring the proletariat, only 29 percent of elementary school parents are willing to send their kids back now. You reap what you sow, I suppose. Still no discussion of sending secondary students back.

    Can’t wait for the opportunity to vote to bring back our great President back for a second term!

    Hearing from some of our Treepers here in enemy territory today, I have to say I think there will have to be a movement at some point for conservative counties/regions of some states to break off from their leftist controlled areas and join other states. I don’t know how that could be legally achieved, but I know there has been talk of Western Virginia breaking off and joining West Virginia, and Western Oregon and Washington joining Idaho. Perhaps rural Colorado could join up with Wyoming, rural Illinois with Indiana.

    Covid has illustrated how unjust it is for conservatives to be trapped in a state with liberals who have no respect whatsoever for Constitutionally guaranteed freedoms and rights.

    I saw my first Biden sign yesterday in a window of a building on my block, it made me so sad that I can’t put up a Trump sign. Last election there were Bernie signs everywhere so don’t think there’s much enthusiasm for Biden it will just be an anti Trump vote, The only other signs around are hand written blm signs in storefront windows of businesses I will never walk into again!

    I live in South Central Pennsylvania. News reports continue to come in about “errors” in the mail-in ballot system which is new to Pennsylvania this year. Reports, this morning, note that 1100 voters in blue Bucks County received live duplicate ballots. Pennsylvanians have been assured that the “system” will prevent double voting. Of course, the “system” was to prevent duplicate ballots as well. Concerned about the potential for voter fraud, I have signed up to be a poll worker. I want to rely upon my own eyes not what is being reported in the press.
    On a better note, Trump signs continue to greatly outnumber Biden signs here in Central Pa. Many signs are handmade. I noticed an even more lopsided Trump advantage when traveling to the reliably blue Johnstown, in Western Pa. Everywhere I have been seeing parking lot tents popping up with vendors selling Trump merchandise. I have never seen this before Trump. The number of street vendors this cycle greatly exceeds what I saw during 2016. A shop owner in Gettysburg told me that this summer it was the Trump merchandise he was selling that kept his store afloat during a greatly reduced tourism season brought about by social distancing requirements imposed by our Governor.

    I’m in the Chicago burbs. They used to be reliably Republican. Now the idiot women who believe they are educated but are at most university credentialed and indoctrinated (and I say this as a woman) are putting out their Biden signs and patting themselves on the back for how un-racist they are in their floral masks. The husbands who are masculine or otherwise in finance vote R; the ones who are safety kool-aid doctors or who let their wives run the show will vote D. Trump signs get stolen, and you are shamed on neighborhood social media for daring to put one up because it means you are such a racist. Hopefully the “fair tax” our billionaire governor says will target the millionaires and billionaires (which he won’t pay because he can shelter his income while a 25-years in cop and teacher couple will get dinged with the highest tax rates) is going to fail on the ballot. Can’t wait for this election to be over. May God help Trump stop voter fraud in Milwaukee, Detroit, Minneapolis and Philadelphia so the rust belt stays red, and Trump prevails overwhelmingly on election night.

      I’m in Milwaukee county- just outside of Milwaukee proper – Way more Trump signs till you get in predictable areas but even then not really many Biden signs. I think the big issue is they won’t get the turnout…there is no incentive for marginal groups to go out and make that effort. I think in reality some of the “groups” people talk about as for sure for Biden are really not going to show up en mass from what I’ve seen. Even the street circus crowds/clowns that have been up and down our roads all the time are being ignored – there was no end game for those movements – just wanted to be like 2 year olds and then bring violence – people are wise to that activity and know what party supports that stuff. The police support is growing every day, the law and order president is growing everyday. Milwaukee and Madison will always be blue but I think they will get whacked hard by the rest of the state. The rest of the state is fired up bigly! Even farms at the end of a dead end road has big Trump Banners on the barns – its everywhere.

    Went to vote in Zebulon this morning (eastern Wake County) just east of Raleigh, NC. The wait was less than 10 minutes. I always look at the counter on our vote scanning device to see how many votes have been scanned. Today it registered 4437, which has to be a running total for the entire early voting period. The thing that struck me today were the voting site trolls handing out “vote for this candidate” materials. I’ve always thought if you don’t know who you are going to vote for when you arrive at the polling place, you shouldn’t be allowed to vote. Anyway, I was approached by a young lady who asked it I wanted a democrat voting guide. I sarcastically said no, and then realized no one offered me a republican voting guide. Why is that? As I waited for my daughter to exit the building, I actually saw folks taking the democrat voting guide. I guess democrats have to be instructed how to vote.
    Our county, like much of the South, has been invaded by northern liberals fleeing overburdening taxes and regulations only to bring their politics and ideology with them. A once true red state, NC is now a purple state in danger of becoming solid blue. According to the Wake County Board of Elections website, as of 10/21/2020: 73,202 democrats have voted early compared to 37,194 republicans.

    Here in the People’s Republik of WA early returned ballots are running way ahead of 2016.
    https://www.sos.wa.gov/elections/research/ballot-return-statistics.aspx#collapseComparison

    10/25/2016: Tot Voters 4,270,270 Returned ballots: 6.2% (147,603).

    10/20/2020: Tot Voters:4,821,903 Returned ballots: 17.6% (441,443).
    10/21/2020: Tot Voters: 4,828,253 Returned ballots: 25.0% (359,873).

    I don’t have a breakdown of R/D split. WA runs blue in the 3 most populous counties, effectively (often) neutering the rest of the state. In earlier years the early votes would have been heavily D, with the balance shifting closer to election day. My suspicion is this year the various crises, emergencies, lock downs, conflicting guidance from local government, & of course the antics of the AntiFasoovians in SEA & PDX might drive the momentum the opposite way…

    We will see.
    Don’t get cocky.

    You see lots of Trump supporters on corners on the weekend too. However, around here there aren’t many Trump signs in the yards. It’s unfortunate but the Democratic party and their hateful ideology will attack anyone who disagrees with them. Not just by stealing or defacing your sign but actual damage to your property, and physical threats. I suspect they will also mark where you live and return later. Their hatred is that bad. People just don’t want to deal with that.

    We are 60 miles from Los Angeles and went Hillary in 2016. We also elected a far left Congressman in Harley Rouda, who has voted with Nancy Pelosi 100% of the time, including to impeach Donald Trump and overturn the will of the electorate. He is a communist in disguise. Said he didn’t want to vote for Pelosi as speaker and his FIRST vote was for Nancy Pelosi as speaker. His opponent is an Orange County swamp creature Michelle Steel. I do not like her campaign. She has said nothing about Pelosi or impeachment or President Trump. She doesn’t get it. But she is far better than a Marxist communist who lies to the people.

    Nearby here is a more blue collar town in Costa Mesa. There are lots of Biden and Rouda signs there. Very discouraging. But we know why. Trump supporters are peaceful, patriotic Americans who respect others free speech. Biden supporters are violent, vicious, selfish, hateful parasites that want to take your money and pass it out among themselves. They must be very ill educated to not recognize the bad economic impact of higher taxes, no energy to fuel our industry and our lives, and 47 years of corruption with Crime Pop Biden. They just want the “free” stuff.

      Yes, friends and relatives are telling me that the Governor and her staff have turned off residents. In addition, John James was polling well against Gary Peters, which will be a real plus for the state if James replaces Peters. The real issue is the potential for the mail-in fraud. The Gov tried to get the two week extension and failed.

    Central NJ here. Most of the people I know are all voting for Donald Trump. I have registered 3 people this year to vote. Most people do NOT put Trump signs out who support him. I have a giant Trump 2020 flag that says “No More Bullshit” that I just put out Tuesday for the 2 week to go mark.

    I see very few Biden signs in my neighborhood BUT my drive to work through Princeton good god I count 21 Biden/Harris signs a few BLM signs and 2 Trump flags. I have to drive that route EVERY DAY and my blood pressure definitely spikes on my way through.

    We are far less concerned about the Republican patriots voting versus the “mail-in fraud”. We have read about the myriad of attempts already, and the attempts to set up the environment for generating the fraud. Hopefully the extent of the Biden corruption will suppress Democrat voting as they are turned off by the extent of corruption in the Democratic Party.

      My hope is the Trump turnout will be too much to overcome with fraud. Fraud usually only works in close elections. A landslide would require so much vote fraud that it would be noticed and they would be exposed. But that needs a landslide vote in PA, MI, OH, and WI which may be harder as they were all close in 2016.

      The good news is I thought Hillary was a bad candidate and that helped Trump last time. Crime Pop Biden appears to be way worse than Hillary ever was. He’s cognitively challenged, can’t work more than one day before needing a weeks rest, needs a week to prepare for a simple debate, lies about the “fine people” quote as his reasoning for running, slurs his words, stutters, can’t remember basic facts (which was not really the case before this year), has gone full Marxist with taxes and Green New Debacle, is running on a Orange Man Bad theme because his accomplishments after 47 years are nil, and has been exposed extorting money for him and his family from countries around the world including China.

      A demented, career, corrupt, politician who doesn’t know where he is and is being led by the nose by Marxist America haters like AOC and bases his campaign on a total lie. And he was the best the Dems had? Incredible how far they have fallen in their zeal to destroy the US as we know it.

    On 10 miles of rural highway outside Corvallis Oregon there is one Biden sign, my Alek Skarlatos and Trump/Pence sign and a “rural people against racism” sign in yard that looks like a dump. Communist Benton county actively removes signs that can be seen from the highway. Drove down a side street of 20 houses that I know has a dozen registered Rs- one Biden sign no others. Lots of retired lefties from OSU and tech out here. No enthusiasm for Biden. Oregon has reached a point where two cites outvote the rest of the state. Time to change the rules or the state line.

      Dropped off my family’s ballots yesterday at the drop box in front of the Pierce County Annex (Tacoma, WA). Long line of Karen-driven electrics and then me in my old 4-door sedan. Not expecting any miracles from WA; heck, because of the “jungle primary” many Reps didn’t even make it onto the ballot (Lt Gov is an all Dem final and my Legislative District #10 is an all Dem final) so had to do some write-ins (Richard Muri – R for Lt Gov…he was the top Rep vote getter in the primary and Rian Ingrim for WA-10) just so no one could fill in a blank Dem. We are a long way from healthy here in the Pacific Northwest, but the patriots up here are doing our best and trust the rest of the country will make up for our region’s waywardness.

    Living our best life is the one and only thing that the left will never control about us although they will try. This is how we rage against the dying of the light. Act as though your way of life and country are up for grabs because they are. Your way of life is not privileged, racist, or deserving of guilt. It was bought and paid for by the blood of those that surrendered their life for it, sacrificed for it, made hard choices for it. Remember those sacrifices were given in the belief that we today would do everything we can to preserve not only their memory but more importantly their values. The history to be told to your progeny is being decided today. That’s right folks, the left will rewrite everything you know about who we are as a people and how we got here. For certain, the lefts’ version will not be the truth and it will be jammed down the throat of your grandchildren and future generations to come. You know it, they know it, and it will be decided here and now. Remember America is freedoms last stand. The left’s intentions have transitioned from covert hiding to quiet normalization to now full open public displays. The the levers of control are now openly exposed for all to see and chose. Most assuredly the left will not hesitate to pack the court, eliminate the filibuster, and grant voting privileges to illegals incentivized by access to Americas wealth. Along these paths they will eliminate all constitutional remedies to restoration of a competitive playing field of ideas, the very essence of rule by and not of the governed. Control of decisions by we the people will be lost, and our republic along with it. Let it be written in infamy that the tides of the scourge of socialism and perhaps even worse, globalism, turned on November 3, in the year of our Lord 2020.

    We have one Biden/Harris sign along the roads with in an 8 mile radius of our far. There aren’t a lot of Trump signs out but around here the people who come home from work with dirt under their fingernails don’t do a lot of sign placing, they let their votes speak.

    Big battle here is for the Senate seat, failed Clinton Secretary of Agriculture Mike Espy is being run for the seat again,having lost to Cindy Hyde-Smith before. A lot of money, much from the outside, is coming in to support Espy and where we’re not seeing a lot of pro-Espy advertising I’m told there’s a lot of street-level stuff going on the the liberal white areas and heavily black counties, especially the rural ones. They are desperate to flip this seat and being a Clinton kitchen boy Espy would be the perfect bought puppet.

    The stat will be requiring ID from all voters so that should cut down on fraud though in rural Democratic areas Rat pollsters could quite easily circumvent that. We’ll see if the Democratic promise of a big piece of the American pie that they didn’t help bake is outweighed by the needs of the bakers.

Trump signs all throughout the rural areas, Up State, Midlands, Pee Dee and Low Country. Lots of Democrats crossing over to vote straight Republican ticket. Biden support is strong among teachers, college professors and Yankee carpetbaggers.

    If this is true, and Trump actually happens to receive Walker-esque numbers from the WOW Counties (the Milwaukee suburbs), then Biden is DEFINITELY toast here in WI (I’d say by about 3 or 4 points, assuming those sort of WOW county numbers), as the rural vote throughout most of the State is very strongly aboard the Trump Train…

    2) This is compared to 26% of early voters in Dane Co. (U. of Wisconsin) & Milwaukee.OMG. Suburban Republicans are out-dueling college town/urban Democrats in getting young/infrequent voters to the polls.

      I believe it, people in WI are fired up. I’m in NE Racine County, pretty much equidistant from Waukesha, Milwaukee & Racine. Trump signs, banners and flags are everywhere (even saw several along I-39/90 in Dane County last month). Our resident ignorant lefty neighbors who had Hillary signs in 2016, and Bernie 2020 signs until he dropped out, have no Biden signs.

    Western Foothills Maine

    Far more Trump signs than Biden ones.
    My own family will divide down the middle. 😖

    Point of Interest:

    I received a flyer from the Maine GOP stating that we could vote on our rank choice ballot across the board for the person of choice. Example: Trump first, second, third, etc. Though I like the concept, I was so suspicious that I questioned the information.

    My representative did not answer my request for further information and my Town Office was confused and told me they didn’t know if marking the ballot that way would result in its being tossed out.

    Finally late last night my daughter finally received confirmation that that is a valid approach. The ballot will not be tossed for marking every selection for President Trump. Phew. That is how I will handle rank choice voting.

    And the questions you all have…will I vote for Susan Collins? Yes, with nose plugged. I was planning to vote for another candidate until I read the information on that candidate at
    https://www.myfaithvotes.org/

    I will vote in person on November 3.
