Ground Reports #3 – Polling Narratives Collapse, Democrat COVID Strategy Backfires, MAGA Resolve Stronger Than Ever…

Never doubt nor underestimate the resolve of American patriots… Because when it matters most, no words are needed; each understands the mission at hand. Right now in every state, county, village, hamlet, city and street the MAGA community is independently rallying to the exact same standard. “Meet at the old mill, we ride at midnight“.

This is the third in our 2020 series of CTH ground reports, and 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.

Perhaps no headline best showcases the current state of the media narrative than Politico: “Democrats Sound The Alarm in Miami.”…  Except, it’s not just Miami, Florida; it is also Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and states like Michigan, Wisconsin and even Minnesota.

Yes, the middle-class insurgency is fully engaged, and with us all activated the media polling narratives are collapsing by the hour.

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.

We still see 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, alive and on the march.

The MAGA rallies, parades and grassroots events break-out independent of each-other and literally happen all over America on any given day. Miles and miles of cars with Trump flags… the same with boats… and sometimes just marches in the street where thousands of people gather and walk with American flags, Trump banners, and other gear.

To make the marches even more effective we now see Trump supporters swarming the event venues where Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are showing up. The Trump supporters easily outnumber the Biden supporters by 20:1 or more. This is a totally organic uprising that started in early October; but word has spread on social media, and now it is happening everywhere.

MAGA-TikTok is an army of users generating content, and that content is bleeding over to other social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Google is trying to tamp it down via controls on YouTube but the scale, just like the MAGA parades themselves, is overwhelming. Generation Z is leading the charge on this approach as they take 60 second videos of MAGA-people, MAGA-places and MAGA-events and then rebroadcast the content adding their own MAGA-centric enhancements and soundtracks.

As we anticipated the COVID weaponization is backfiring against the totalitarian left big time. Yesterday, in an attempt to restart a depressed movement Joe Biden said: “I’m not going to shut down the economy. I’m not going to shut down the country. But I am going to shut down the virus,” a platitude statement that refutes Biden’s prior position and simultaneously makes no sense.

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 increasingly high.

Our opposition is shallow, reliant upon astroturf and completely dependent on 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 in these final days. 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.

At this point, if you are on a team thinking this entire assembly of our union is headed in the right direction… you might want to revisit your proximity to the ballpark. If you look around at the passing landscape you’ll find your autopilot has taken you, not just out of the city, but out of the state the ballpark is located in…..

There’s a level of resolve far deeper and more consequential than expressed rage or visible behavior.  Cold Anger does not need to go to violence.  For those who carry it, no conversation is needed.  You cannot poll or measure it; and even those who carry it avoid discussion.  And that decision has nothing whatsoever to do with any form of correctness.

Cold Anger is not hatred, it is far more purposeful.

Cold Anger absorbs betrayal silently, often prudently.

We’ve watched the shooting of cops, and the parades which follow, absorbing.  Cold Anger takes notice of the liars, even from a great distance – seemingly invisible to the mob.  Cold Anger will still hold open the door for the parade goer.  Mannerly.

Cold Anger evidenced is more severe because it is more strategic.

Cold Anger does not gloat; it absorbs consistent vilification and ridicule as fuel.  This sensibility does not want to exist, it is forced to exist in otherwise unwilling hosts – who also refuse to be destabilized by it.

Deliberate intent and prudence will insure avoiding failure.  The course, is thoughtful vigilance;  a strategy devoid of emotion.

Foolishness and betrayal of our nation have served to reveal dangers within our present condition.  Misplaced corrective action, regardless of intent, is neither safe nor wise.

Cold Anger is not driven to act in spite of itself; it drives a reckoning.

When the well attired leave the checkout line carrying steaks and shrimp using an EBT card, the door is still held open; yet notations necessarily embed.

When the U.S. flag lays gleefully undefended, it does not lay unnoticed.

When a school community cannot openly pray, it does not mean the prayerful were absent.

When a liar seems to win, it is not without observation.  Many – more than the minority would like to admit – know the difference between science, clocks and political agenda.

A resolve filled with cold anger perceives deception the way a long-term battered person absorbs the final blow in the hours prior to the pre-planned exit; with purpose.

A shield, or cry of micro-aggression will provide no benefit, nor quarter.  Delicate sensibilities are dispatched like a feather in a hurricane.  Pushed far enough, decisions are reached.

The political pendulum has never, in the history of humanity, stayed on one side of a swing. The backlash from leftist over-reach has always been proportionate to how far off center it went before coming back; and right now there’s a whole hell of a lot of the country (about 80-90% of the land mass, as well as over half the population) that is FED UP.

They tried to take him down with false accusations of collusion; he stood tall.

The tried to take him down with a fabricated special counsel investigation; he stood tall.

They tried to take him down with a fake impeachment effort; he stood tall.

Our chosen President has been constantly attacked by those holding a corrupt, conniving and Godless leftist ideology.  It is our job now to stand with him, firm on his behalf.

I believe this statement encapsulates the moment:

…”I can barely focus on my job, housework, anything except waiting with anticipation for our votes to overwhelm the horrid corrupt opposition the night of Nov 3.

God bless and keep us all but especially POTUS & all of you on the front lines – fighting the 2nd American Revolution!”…

Ride strong my brothers and sisters…. RIDE STRONG !

    I live in Phoenix AZ and am a transplant from Brooklyn, NY. In my neighborhood (Arcadia/Biltmore) there are numerous Biden lawn signs. I walk my dog near those signs every day and hope he pees on them, but no such luck yet! Phoenix is, of course, as blue as any large city. I work in a hospital a few miles away from Goodyear, where Pres Trump had a rally a few days ago. A colleague was bragging that his wife and teenage son got to attend, and he showed me some photos. This is a Mormon family. Not sure how they voted in 2016, but they are 100% Trump in 2020.

    The feeling I get in Phoenix is that there is a Trump underground, but it’s not spoken out loud. The stink of the McCain RINO machine is still everywhere in Phoenix (yes, that means McSally for Senate, but I held my nose and voted for her, too). I listen to talk radio (550 KFYI) because they are huge Trump supporters. A rival ‘conservative’ talk radio station is pure RINO. When they reported on the Goodyear rally they said things like, “he (Pres Trump) offers nothing new to voters, the people are chanting ‘lock him up’ for Biden, but that’s the same thing they did 4 years ago with Hillary, how can people be excited about that?” Obviously they are way out of touch and forcing a point of view that I think no one else even considers!

    I travel often to Prescott, AZ. There, the excitement for Trump is palpable and (dare I say it) … contagious! Flags, signs, patriotism, and joy are the hallmarks of the Trump movement. Before this year I’ve never heard people chanting ‘we love you’ to a politician!

    My very first vote for a presidential candidate was for Reagan’s reelection. I feel blessed to be able to vote for Pres Trump again.

    A little more about me: My parents were immigrants from Poland in the 1950s and were fiercely anti-communist. I am gay and my partner and I are both huge Trump supporters. We believe in freedom above labels! My partner voted for Obama in 2008, and that was his last ever Dem vote after I educated him 🙂

    • rpcoastie says:

      Thank you for your courageous support of President Trump, Soaringbull!!!

      • soaringbull says:

        My pleasure! I can’t believe that MSM is saying Biden has higher support than Hillary in some areas. Makes no sense to me… but then again all it takes is a little rational thought, which the left does not want us to do.

    • bosscook says:

      I live in Prescott and appreciate your appreciation! When you back in town, let’s try to connect and I’ll buy you an adult beverage of your choice!!

      • soaringbull says:

        Sounds great! We just bought a condo not far from Yavapai Regional Medical Center and are looking for like-minded friends. Not sure how best to connect but we will likely be there this weekend. Cheers!

    • Kristin DeBacco says:

      Soaring: I saw many Biden signs off of 56th and greenway. That is Phoenix proper.
      But I am sure the houses with an American flag and no signs are not voting Biden.

      • soaringbull says:

        Agreed. But to repeat myself… I can’t imagine anyone actually has enthusiasm for Biden. Why all those flags? I have friends who refuse to tell me who they’re supporting, so I infer they support Biden. But then one of them said he’s a pacifist and is supporting peace. In my mind that means Trump (as in peace in the Middle East, vs. leftist violence in US cities), but who knows what that statement means to a leftist mind?

    • Stiggerts says:

      Drive around the Valley a bit more.

      I’m in nearly every neighborhood in the Valley regularly for my business.

      There are Trump signs everywhere. The only place I see Biden signs are in Arcadia, Sun City, and around ASU in Tempe. Most liberal areas have zero Biden signs but a few “Any Functioning Adult 2020” signs.

      Trump flags and signs are everywhere. I live in Northwest Phoenix (NW valley is the most conservative). In my neighborhood of about 100 houses there are zero Biden signs, 21 Trump flags or signs, and about 35 or so American flags. Everywhere I drive I randomly see vehicles with Trump flags on them.

      Phoenix proper is a Democrat majority but the metro area is uber conservative overall. The Trump energy is insane. It was there privately in 2016, but now it’s public. I’ve never seen this type of excitement for a politician or anyone else for that matter.

      • soaringbull says:

        Great to hear, thank you for sharing this, puts me a little more at ease. I rarely drive through neighborhoods so haven’t seen what you’re seeing. Hoping for a Trump landslide!

      • JayDAZ says:

        In Ahwatukee, Trump signs outnumber Biden signs about 3-1. I frequently see people driving around with Trump flags, including a guy on a Harley towing a Trump flag.

        In my small neighborhood, I counted 12 Trump signs/flags, 3 Biden signs, and another 5-6 American flags. Trump is winning Arizona.

    • BigDeeTX says:

      There is some tongue-in-cheek humor in other discussion places that say that an American Flag is an indication of a shy Trump supporter. I have my Trump/Pence sign at the front of my yard.

  2. I’m a first time poll observer at an undisclosed downtown Phoenix location. You would think that being at an urban location would translate to a lot of democrats showing up to vote. I’ve seen maybe a dozen voters. Most of them dropping of their absentee ballot. I dropped mine off right as the doors opened.

    I’m also sitting here observing while wearing my NRA Life member ball cap. Let’s see if anyone noticed it.

    Wish me luck as I’m in enemy territory. Or so they say.

  4. bosscook says:

    I’m going to go a little nuts here, but I have a feeling (supported by research, both analytical and personal “gut” interactions) that some of these “blue state never turning red” situations are going to surprise us and absolutely gobsmack the leftists. I can echo many of the conversations Treepers had with people….many, many MANY surprising converts to MAGA.

    • delighteddeplorablechumpette says:

      I’ll go out on that limb with you, bosscook. On my tiny branch, I know of eleven life-long Democrats who voted early for……………..President Trump. In California.

      • Dutchman says:

        I predicted, months ago, that the results of the 2020 election will shock US, and the enemy, with how BIG of a blow-out it wll be.

        I see nothing to cause me to alter my prediction, and everything I see, causes me to think perhaps I low balled it.

        • delighteddeplorablechumpette says:

          Love it, Dutch. I cannot wait for that MAGAlandslide!

        • TicoCV14 says:

          In my one block of affluent 20 houses, 5 miles north of downtown Dallas, I see American flags, Republican congressional down candidates signs, and ONE Biden sign with two dinky American flags stuck on the top, as well with their down the line candidates signs. As of this AM, their Biden sign was gone. However, the democratic candidates down line signs remained. Unlikely anyone stoke that sign. Red Wave is coming.

        • He will turn a deep blue state
          I would bet one of these Minnesota,Oregon Washington( because of riots) .
          He will have the closest race in California that we have seen since Reagan.

      • I live out of town in the south/central San Joaquin Valley in CA. My nearest neighbor is a political atheist who hates all politicians equally. President Trump has converted him!

        He has registered to vote for the first time in his life (he isn’t young) and he can’t wait for election day. He watches every rally and sends me texts reminding me not to miss them. He can hardly contain his excitement over this election.

        • T Carroll says:

          Thanks for sharing that good, encouraging news. Those who unexpectedly vote for Trump is going to be a huge, pleasant surprise.

          I have a black friend in Denver and he told me the number of black men voting for Trump will be “big”.

  5. Tankascribe says:

    Benicia, CA here, deep in the heart of the Blue San Francisco Bay Area. No one dares to show any Trump/MAGA signs, flags, or bumper stickers, so can only go by how few Biden signs are around in our neighborhood. As in, I can count them on the flingers of one hand. Pretty much in the yards of the die-hard Dems, the same ones who posted up the BLM/Hate Has No Home Here signs earlier. All Progressive Democrat Women’s Club members, would be my guess. The closest I’ve seen to an open sign of dissatisfaction is the “NEITHER 2020” sign somebody put up. Trump might not take California this year, but we’re sure going to add to his popular vote win! Here’s hoping that map showing election results by county will get even redder! We will go vote in person as always, and I will proudly wear my red “Make Them Cry Again 2020” hat.

    • Right to reply says:

      We have BLM/Hate Has No Home Here signs. Dotted all along the most expensive beach properties where they rarely get to see a black person. These people are hypocrites getting rich on China/Africa slaves for their electronics, and jewellery. Hypocrites all, and the dumb young leftists don’t even get it!

  6. TradeBait says:

    If what is happening in our county in east TN is happening around the country – this election is going to be epic MAGA!

    Population: 100,000. 80,000 are 18 or older. Our satellite early voting location in the rural end of the county had 10,200 early voters. Normally in a POTUS year election it is around 3-4 K. The county’s primary early voting location appears to have exceeded 20,000 – another record. Every day it took 1-3 hours to vote there and people still stood in line to do it. I fully expect PDT will come in with 60,000+ votes in a county that only has 80,000 eligible voters even if all were registered, which they are not.

    FWIW Tennessee has trended strong red and increasing for 25 years. It all changed with Newt’s Contract with America and the demise of the southern Democrat coalition. In 2016 the state went red with 61% voting PDT. That will increase this year IMO.

  7. fangdog says:

    Anyone anywhere with all the latest information on Biden and still vote for Biden is brain-dead. It is no longer a difference in philosophy in terms of how you choose to be governed.

    It is now you choosing a crook and incompetent criminal to control your life. How in the world can you have any respect for yourself let alone expect others to respect you?

    • Mr e-man says:

      You are correct. If their Trump hate is so bad they can’t vote for Trump, they should just not vote for either candidate. Voting for Biden is a fools errand.

  8. Dr. Jane says:

    Philly here:

    With a second round of rioting/looting, I believe some folks are LIVID.

    Still only Biden/Harris, BLM, and Tell Them Ruthie Sent you signs in my neighborhood but maybe, just maybe, I sense a subtle shift.

    Restaurant owners expected to be open and now it’s getting cold and will not be able to seat folks mostly outside. Some businesses that remained open in the summer are now closed due to fear of more violence. Children not being educated fully, only remote, and limits on numbers at church and synagogues (though this has been challenged and varies with each congregation). Homeless people all over. Feds are threatening arrests the DA Krasner will not make, and he and PA State Attorney General made disparaging comments toward Trump, not a good look.

    This situation cannot continue.

  9. Yesterday I went to my local DL Office so that I would have a current, non-expired, states issued, picture ID with my new address on it, so I would have NO PROBLEMS at the poll on Tuesday. (I haven’t driven in YEARS, and let my DL expire from “natural causes”)

    Part of the process included questions if I wanted to alert the supervisor of elections of my new address, or change my polling place. I checked the box that said “No” because I have already filed my new address when I registered to vote for the primary.

    TODAY, less than 24hrs later, my doorbell rang. A young man asked for me BY NAME, and once he identified me, he launched into a spiel about this being a VERY IMPORTANT ELECTION, and asked if I could be counted on to support Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

    My 2-word answer: “ABSOLUTELY NOT”

    He immediately said “Have a nice day” and scrammed off my porch. Which I kinda regret because NOW I want to know HOW he got my name and address? I have neighbors I talk to ALL THE TIME… but I never told ANYONE my last name, which is unique to me among the other members of my household. No bills come in my name. I never filed a change of address with the USPS.

    It looks as if the State DL Office gave away my info to the Dems. Will they ALSO notify them when I die, so they can switch my party affiliation for future elections?

  10. betseyross says:

    I had almost given up on our local Republicans when out of the blue there was a Trump Train running from Leesburg VA out to a local farm just down the road from me. There were probably 200-300 cars which isn’t a lot, but the organizers want to do it again next year for our Congressional district. We have state elections next year. Here in VA there are elections every November. Some signs of life from the Republicans. Not much, but something to build on.

  11. John McStain says:

    I think when we see on election night that PDJT has won Nevada plus a few surprises (maybe MN, NM, CO, VA) we will learn that the late votes of PA or NC won’t matter. The true test of the evening will be Florida. If PDJT wins that EARLY and DECISIVELY, you know that can be forecasted to the rest of the country. Going by 2016 where WI, MI, and PA were surprises, I think we can expect 1 or 2 in 2020… my guess is NV, MN, or NM. PA, NC, and their late fraud ballots won’t matter.

    • hokkoda says:

      I think he keeps all the traditional red states like FL and OH by similarly large (10%+) margins as 2016. Democrats appear to be trying to make their stand in PA, MN, WI and MI and going back to the dry well in AZ.

      CO is not voting for Trump. I hope I am wrong, but CO is quickly becoming California. The current governor (Polis) won not based on his policies but because he’s gay. I had so many F/B friends preening their rainbows about voting for the first gay governor. They didn’t give a rat about his policies…it was pure identity politics.

      In the last election, voters defeated several ballot initiatives attacking the oil and gas industry, but the Democrats in Denver ignored the vote and passed legislation overriding the voters. If CO is close this year, it’ll be because people are pissed about that and pissed about the lockdowns of the ski industry. I doubt it thought. The recall effort against Polis is out there, but hasn’t been able to get enough signatures. They’re trying, but I just feel like CO is CA these days.

      • RWG (Right Wing Gal) says:

        It already is CA. Hubby and I left about a year ago out of disgust. It’s beyond lost.

        • hokkoda says:

          I’m in El Paso county which is still Free Colorado. Denver is a crap hole and if I want to meet a jerk in the mountains, he’s probably from Denver metro area hiking up a 14’er with a loudspeaker blasting out bad music like a douchebag.

          Subtract out Denver and a few of the mountain towns and their drug addicts, and the rest of the state is very red. It’s just that we haven’t been able to overcome Denver.

          • RWG (Right Wing Gal) says:

            I was down in Douglas County which is becoming completely overrun by pissed off, impatient, nose-in-the-air Californians. I think it’s technically still red, but everywhere I went I was tailgated by angry yuppies in BMWs living in the new 750k McMansions. You could not escape the BEEP BEEP BEEP of all the construction vehicles in Parker, CO. The local politicians are beyond corrupt and just keep shoving more development down people’s throats.

          • hokkoda says:

            Yeah, they have a lot of Karens in Douglas County. I used to run a small business there, and I was usually able to weed them out before having to deal with them as customers. I’m glad they’re making the gap project a toll road. I hated how they lied to voters about it, but a toll road will help keep them the hell out of El Paso county! lol

      • Vince says:

        I doubt Colorado will go for President Trump, but there will be a much better showing for republicans. The key to President Trump winning Colorado is Pueblo and southern Colorado. Southern Colorado is almost the same as northern Minnesota, very blue collar union. And it is the most Latino, with a majority multi generation Latino families. President Trump did pretty well but did not win the region last time. Since he is doing much better in those categories he has a chance to win the region.

        • hokkoda says:

          He won Pueblo county (barely) in 2016.

          I always look for unusual things in the graphs. Here’s the returned ballot info from 3 days ago. Notice the “unaffiliated” voters are outpacing Democrats, and the curve is wacky.

          Clearly *something* is happening here. Either unaffiliateds are bolting to Trump or Biden, but I have no idea which. But graphs like that tell me something significant is happening out here. Either we’re accelerating into California-status, or there’s a surprise coming for the President on election day in Colorado.

          • geoffroicc says:

            Great to see real data, thanks. There’s a clear trend that Republican counties are submitting ballots at a lower level (50%) than the mixed and Democratic-leaning counties (55%).

          • hokkoda says:

            And that’s not unusual for Colorado, and we generally close the gap on Election Day.

            It will be interesting to see what to make of that surge in unaffiliated voters. I am unaffiliated, so maybe it’s people like me. Hard to say. That Trump hasn’t spent a dime here says a lot, I think. If CO goes for Trump, it’ll be because of Biden’s fracking policies.

  12. bluesky says:

    Jefferson County CO – this is a big county west of Denver. It was considered a purple county that went for Clinton in 2016. 2020 is more favorable to Trump then in 2016 – The CO GOP isn’t as anti-Trump as they were in 2016 and Colorado has done well under Trump’s energy policy. There are more R signs and less D signs overall that I can see compared to 4 years ago.
    I voted in-person at the Jeffco Election office and there was no line and the vote seemed very secure. Colorado is 100% mail-in ballot, yet there is an option to vote in-person. I have read quite a few tweets of people that are saying that there is no option of voting in-person in Colorado, yet I know that is not the case in Jeffco & Clear Creek County. More in-person polls will be opening up today so there probably will be a jump in voting #’s especially Republicans. Rs are creeping up on the Ds in returned ballots, and the Independents have jumped to the lead.
    There are several issues on the ballot that will bring out the conservatives and Christians to the polls. Colorado Gov Polis is talking more mandates and lock downs which is hurting a lot of people emotionally, financially and spiritually. Last night, new mandates went into effect for Jeffco limiting gathering sizes and no spectators at sports events. WTH? Schools shut down for a few weeks ago and a lot of kids are struggling academically. ‘how to change my vote’ is definitely trending on Facebook. The D COVID mandates may help flip Colorado red.

    • hokkoda says:

      Also the Recall Polis effort seems to be better organized and much more visible. I’m just south of you in El Paso county. Last week, EPC accounted for 1 out of every 7 mail-in ballots that had been returned statewide. I bet that number has increased this week as people finalize their votes.

      All counties have in-person voting stations spread around town. The mail-in ballots can be tracked so you know the Secretary of State office received the ballot. They’ll text and email you once the ballot arrives. My wife did not get a receipt, so I checked, and she had not signed up for the text/email notification…which I fixed…and she got notified too.

      The CO ballot is kinda depressing, to me. How much as the country changed that we need a constitutional amendment specifically stating that you need to be a documented US citizen to vote? That’s sad. Prop 113 (National Popular Vote) is worded to help it pass and approve the Polis bill to join the NPV compact. Prop 113 doesn’t name the Polis’ bill and it doesn’t state that the law is being changed from “winner of CO popular vote” to “winner of national popular vote”…it’s just disgusting.

      My hope is that voters are still pissed about Polis passing those energy bills that the voters specifically rejected in 2016/18.

  13. avi says:

    the town wear I live is having a MAGA rally this Sunday and I will attend. The town usually votes Dem but has some Maga pockets, but few of us will put up signs on our lawn or cars. Not even the sister of one of Trumps top advisor.

  14. Sol Benedict says:

    Cold Anger? I think I have the symptoms…

  15. Looks like every dim strategy is collapsing. For decades the dims used the same old tired playbook. Only thing somewhat new in 2020 was the China Plague to get mass mail in votes. Although the dims always are for any voting mechanism which makes it easy for voter fraud.

    • Kristin DeBacco says:

      None if their strategies are based on authenticity. It’s all fabricated like their ticket. Biden is unelectable just as Harris is. But they were propped up like dead bodies.

  16. Nan says:

    Just voted early in North Houston. The parking lot was full; lots of people there. Everyone in line was very friendly and eager to chit-chat. Very Texan of them! The line moved quick, maybe 15-20 minutes in and out.

    There was a set of Trump folks and Biden folks each outside the polling place. The Trump folks were pleasant and happy, waving flags but otherwise leaving voters alone. The Biden people all looked sour (you know the type, cranky Boomers who’ve had too much college in their lives) and were wandering through the parking lot with clipboards, bugging people. Didn’t get the feeling that was helping their cause much.

    My husband wouldn’t let me talk to them, lol.

    I’ve heard we have record turn-out here. I hope this state doesn’t get flipped to blue this year! But everyone is super tired of the lockdowns, and with the reports of massive voter fraud down in Harris County, hopefully the rest of the Houston area is mobilizing to overwhelm that.

    Austin, Texas
    I voted early yesterday, Mask on, cellphone off, no line, presented TDL, signed the ID screen, got the ballot, voted, scanned the ballot. This took 5-8 minutes at most.
    The process was as smooth as silk.
    Today is the last day for early voting in Travis county.

  18. Sean Molin says:

    Minnesota here. It’s the tale of two cities. Deep Blue Minneapolis where Biden signs are in lots of yards along with BLM – and everything outside of the inner circle – where I believe the suburbs and rural areas are experiencing an awakening. If it was close last time, there is no reason we cannot win this time. But this is probably the closest of the battlegrounds IMO.

  19. Jorizabeth says:

    San Diego is a tourist city. With everything shut down, it’s hard to tell But even locals seem impatient with nothing to do. They threw a crumb out recently and opened children’s playgrounds, but seems like the exuberance is still missing with only a few showing up. Biking doesn’t even show in the bike lanes much and the weather is great! No signs except a few J.B. ones.

    Coronadans woke up to some nasty trick with signs switched recently, but the police said it’s not illegal to put a sign (or trade one out) in somebody’s yard. In other words, things could be a lot worse and just throw the thing away! Anyone doing that is very low intelligence anyway. My known Trump friends usually just display a very small flag. Huge arguments have taken place with some neighbors, so Democrats need to get appointments with their shrinks set up now!

  20. NC Nana says:

    I’ll start by saying elections in NC are run by the Governor’s party. Roy Cooper is a Democrat.

    Two examples for early voting locations in Wake County (the Capitol city county):
    Wake Forest early voting location. (Only one early voting location for this suburb to Raleigh, pop 48,048.)

    Voting enclosure size 1,514 sq ft. Contains 4 voting booths. Line of voters wraps around outside of building. Wait about 4 hours.

    Wake Tech South Campus (21,872 students). (Ten early voting locations for Raleigh.)

    Voting enclosure size 12,900 sq ft. Contains 80 voting booths. No wait. Walk up. Give name and address, vote.

    The Democrats have ways of slowing down conservative voters. This is one way. (4 voting booths compared to 80 voting booths.)

  21. Kristin DeBacco says:

    Trump/ Pence signs are finally popping up here in north Scottsdale. The lone Biden sign disappeared….
    The Trump merchants on the road side were swamped yesterday afternoon. Really great to see.
    Good feelings.

  22. Merkin Muffley says:

    Rush and Hannity are talking about an October Surprise bombshell hatched by the Democrats to stop Trump. Any ideas as to what this would be? I don’t see anything 72 hours before the election that would change anything after 70 million people have already voted

    • Patriot GalNC says:

      Yes, I heard that too when I was eating lunch today. I agree that 72 hours before an election won’t change anything at this point. Besides…the Democrats have tossed EVERYTHING at PDJT for 4 years, an now they think they have something that will hurt his re-election? Also…who the hell believes anything the NYT trots out any longer? I do wonder if this was “floated” as part of the doom-cryer effort heap up discouragement.

      We need to be and remain HAPPY WARRIORS!!!

      • More Bore says:

        “OMG, the media brothels who have lied blatantly and openly for 4 years has a NEW STORY and I TOTALLY BELIEVE IT!”

        said no Trump voter ever.

    • More Bore says:

      Timed so there is not enough time for it to be fully debunked and disrobed.

      Who cares. Just vote

    • upstate909 says:

      Yeah…I heard that today too. I sum it up as the Ben Rhodes creative writing club at the NYT will attempt the sensationalism we have always associated with the tabloids. My guess will be that it surrounds the “secret Chinese bank account” that has flirted on the outskirts of the news. They are preying on the echo chamber, as opposed to us praying for truth and leadership. Praying Trumps Preying! But hey who knows.

      Maybe we will find that the “pee pee” tapes were inspired by Hunter.

  23. Oldretiredguy says:

    Far eastern Washington here. Im seeing NO Biden support and a solid push to dump Washington’s pathetic Governor Inslee. You couldn’t have more contrasting population than here in the Communist State of Washington.

    • Alligator Gar says:

      I love eastern WA. I have family around Republic. I miss visiting them, but the great aunt passed on and the younger cousins didn’t want to keep in touch. Lovely place.

  24. Good_heavens_are_you_still_trying_to_win says:

    Southern Westchester County, NY. Half hour wait, threesome of loud Biden voters behind me. Everyone else was respectful and perhaps even contemplative. About 50 people in line on another crummy, cold, rainy day. I was the 4700+ voter based on the machine count. Don’t know if that’s just today or overall (early voting began last Saturday, I believe). Poll workers friendly and efficient (by NY standards) overall good experience.

    Westchester is tough to call. A lot of rational people here but also the overeducated (of which I am one, frankly, so I’m not making an anti-elitist rant here) and arrogant about their liberal ignorance, their “libnorance”, while posing in their alma mater sweatshirts. It can be a bit much, honestly. I did my part and I have hope and faith. As GEOTUS says, we shall see …

  25. Jeff E. G. says:

    I am canvassing potential Trump supporters in Palm Beach County, FL. Visited over 500 homes and, of those I talked to, all but one had already voted or would vote early or day of. A lot of people are suspicious of mail or early voting so they will vote on election day. People are engaged and enthusiastic.

  26. Alligator Gar says:

    Meant to tell everyone here, but forgot. I went to the Pence rally at the TLH airport last Saturday night. Leon County, FL is DEEP BLUE. The fam and I didn’t expect there to be many attendees. Boy, were we wrong!

    There were hundreds of people gathered to wait in the cold rain for the VEEP to arrive. He arrived late, but nobody was grumbling. We had lots of local politicians and a few holding national office speak and warm up the crowd. I was soaked, along with most everyone else, but we were warm with the companionship of so many like-minded folks. We yelled and clapped and chanted and had a blast.

    There were not as many as attended the Trump rally in 2016 at the car museum, but there were a good many– and the weather was foul…did I mention that the weather was terrible? It was really, really bad….

  27. Maria says:

    I voted yesterday with my daughter and son-in-law. Three votes for PDJT , Delray precinct. Palm Beach County.Low turnout. 7 pm. Democrat area. Aura of dejection and low energy. I felt that they knew they were voting for Harris not Biden.

  28. Danimal28 says:

    Lindstrom MN, here, home to the MN 8th district that is traditionally MN DFL because of farmers and miners up north. This district is going hard red for the first time in generations and will carry MN for Trump. 50% of our state population is in the Twin City metro area, but the Chinese flu nonsense and the riots have all but killed the main cities. Literally. Housing starts outside the cities is up 50% as people are finally finding out that when democrats run cities for 60 years into the ground – they don’t like it.

    Not being cocky here, but out here people are building literal shrines to the president and there is Trump stores in every town; when the heck have we seen that before?! IN MINNESOTA for godsakes…

    Ride strong everyone!

  29. Deplorable and Proud says:

    Spent yesterday at the Tampa rally, and IT WAS AWESOME!! With only a day’s notice, THOUSANDS and THOUSANDS of people turned out, waiting in the hot sun for hours just to see our POTUS. While we were moving through the endless line to get to security, countless cars and trucks were honking and giving us thumbs-up. What amazed me was how many of the attendees were young people! They were so excited and happy, it was a joy to watch them. I’d estimate that there were almost as many young folks as us seniors – which was pretty impressive for Florida! Melania was stunning and eloquent; Governor DeSantis hit it out of the park, and POTUS really seemed to be enjoying himself. The enthusiasm for our president was off the charts. Don’t believe anyone who says Creepy Joe is ahead in FL. Unless the Dems cheat, Florida is about to be hit by a RED TSUNAMI!!

    • Deplorable_Vespucciland says:

      Was that the rally where Nigel Farage showed up and said a few words onstage?

      ~~~~~~~ TRUMP the VOTE ~~~~~~~

  30. The Akh says:

    Voted on Monday to celebrate HRCs birthday.

    I live in a >95% Black neighborhood and voted at local church.

    Walked right in, no real line, only half the voting machines being used at any one time. Was in and out in 20 minutes.

    When I voted on election day in 2016, I had a feeling that Trump would win because it only took 20 minutes for me to vote that day. In general, I get the feeling there is very little voter turnout in the typically strong Democrat base of Black voters.

  31. Infuriating. In AZ, ballot harvesting is illegal. The only exception is for a family member or caretaker. As a poll observer, I witnessed a gentleman dropping off multiple ballots. I called our hotline to report it and was told that the poll workers are not required to ask the voter if they are one of those two exceptions. The hotline said they are trying to get that changed. Shouldn’t that have been taken care of beforehand? Also, can my fellow treepers verify if that is the case here in AZ ?

    Voted for PDJT already by hand delivering my absentee ballot to my voting office in South Carolina. Looked up and line was wrapped all the way around the building. Do not know any that are voting for Biden. Lindsay Graham apparently having a tough one down here, but still can not see him losing seat based on people wanting liberals/communist not overtaking the senate

    • upstate909 says:

      Here in Cherokee County SC, we went to pay our property taxes today at the county office, and there was not a single parking space available. Tons of early in person voters. Our household will vote in person on election day. My precinct only has 1500 voters, so I do not anticipate any long wait. Guess they will have to wait until after the election to get paid…lol

      Have traveled through upstate SC, northeast GA, and western NC recently. I notice Trump signs outnumber Biden signs about 50 to 1 on private property. Dem signs are generally seen at major intersections with red- lights. A few are spattered on the countryside at 4 way stop intersections. In Spartanburg City, most Biden signs were turned upside down, but not removed. ( I found it ironic this happened in an area where the homeless shelters are: hopefully they are aware and not just bored).

      Have an overall good vibe here. We started resisting the virus scare….and once again…they are turning up the heat on NEW cases. People are fed up with this and it will show on election day.

  35. I’ve seen several folks reporting from Phoenix, Arizona; and some even in the same neighborhood where I’m located (Biltmore). Yesterday, I heard President Trump had a 4+ advantage in Arizona, but Mark Kelly-(D) was leading Martha McSally by +5 in the Senate race. This was via local radio station “The Patriot” 960 AM.

    What this indicates to me is the usual, heavy turnout of early Democrat voters; however, those voters are crossing over to vote for Trump on the Presidential ballot, but then returning to vote Democrat on the remainder of the down ticket. This is actually GREAT! This is the smallest lead that Kelly has had over McSally at any point since he entered this race.

    All my friends, family, and acquaintances are planning to vote on Tuesday, in person. I believe when that large influx hits, Donald J. Trump easily carries Arizona again, and McSally is re-elected in a squeaker.

    Yard signs? I was an early, enthusiastic supporter of President Trump from the escalator ride onward. I put out signs in 2016 but twice they disappeared. I didn’t place any this year and in my area, I see absolutely no signs for anyone. I remain convinced, however, every home which doesn’t have any signage is voting Trump; Biden voters don’t experience sign theft because we’re simply too polite. MAGA!!

    • soaringbull says:

      Thanks for your encouraging comments about the race in AZ. I think that neither Kelly nor McSally are in any way likable, and am hoping that enough voters support the President to send McSally back to the Senate. I agree this part of the race will be a squeaker!

  36. Do stop thinking about tomorrow says:

    So I am on Facebook today and a friend die in the wool Biden support now talking about tie in the electoral college.

    Even diehard supporters see they are being suckered.

  37. Gift says:

    Hey SD and all! Reporting from the upper east side (UES) of NYC, for what it’s worth (not much lol). Lines are 4 hours long even in the rain. But I have seen a few MAGA hats in line, which was a little surprising, given the % of democrats that encompass the UES. I plan on voting on election day. Even though I’m in the dem bubble up here, it looks like they’re serious – all of their uninformed people are going to the polls. We’ll need to keep the energy up and get out and vote! Bring some friends!

  38. Pvt. Idaho says:

    All the Trump parades* here in SoCal (L.A. County) are so encouraging to all of us supporters. I see no outward signs of enthusiasm and joy from the citizens on the left. It’s all one-sided. We’re the only ones truly excited about OUR candidate! This is L.A. County! We’re supposed to be blue! Or are we?
    *More parades/events are planned for this weekend.

  39. Scoob says:

    Inside the beltway, mostly Biden signs, but a few brave Trumpers have put out signs. We have also seen one house pulling down a Biden sign and replacing with a Trump banner!

    Drain the swamp!!! Please drain this swamp!!!

  40. hokkoda says:

    This is from a few days ago, but the trends are probably accurate. The % of (D) and (R) early voting (the margin between them) is worse for the GOP in 2020 than 2016. Trump has spent zero time in CO since late-winter 2020, and CO is turning into California. In fact, the governor passed that NPV Compact law which turns over CO electoral votes to the big states instead of CO voters…and CO Democrats are THRILLED with this. I mean they HATE the Electoral College. They just tell you that more people live in CA, so if CA wants a different President, then CA should get its way.

    The only ray of sunshine, perhaps, is that the number of unaffiliated voters has jumped past Democrats. I am an unaffiliated voter, so it cannot be said that unaffiliated voters are all Democrat. But the conventional wisdom is that unaffiliateds lean Democrat.

    I don’t see a red wave out here. Not in the early vote returns.

    • hokkoda says:

      I shouldn’t be TOO negative. Clinton only won CO by 3% in 2016 and that was with the NeverTrumper “Johnson/Weld” astroturf candidate on the ballot taking 5%. For Trump to lose by only 3% means that the unaffiliated voters likely broke to Trump whereas they lean Democrat most of the time. In the above link, unaffiliated voters outnumber Democrat voters in early voting. GOP voting is not keeping up with Democrat early voting… whereas in 2016 the GOP early voting and (D) early voting was much closer. Trump won Pueblo County (the Steel City…a Democrat area) in 2016.

      So, it’s possible he does okay here. It’s a turnout election, and so far the Democrats and Unaffiliateds are turning out better than registered Republicans.

    • GH says:

      I wasn’t counting on CO… but do empathize with you. I know from experience one usually cannot just pull up stakes and move elsewhere. Especially if you have kids in the 12-18 range.

      • hokkoda says:

        Also: Colorado is heaven. I grew up in PA, and wanted to live here my whole life. It has everything I love. 30 years ago, GOP Guv, GOP Senators, TABOR, etc. Now we have California.

  41. Rita Goodbook says:

    Family member from Laredo reporting: 95%+ hispanic population, they love their law enforcement which are 100% hispanic. Huge Trump support. Spontaneous Trump rally last month drew over 4000 vehicles, copycat Biden rally after a month of advertising drew half that. Neighborhood filled with Trump Signs.

  42. lavender blue says:

    Utah… I’m voting in-person straight ticket republican and volunteered as an election integrity poll watcher. Pelosi lapdog crony Benny McAdams is ahead of Burgess Owens and we’re trying to counter all the dimm attack ads. How in the hell can anyone vote for “the prince of darkness”” biden. And how can any human think they will b economically better off with this deep swamp puppet. It’s such a simple good vs. evil scenario, the choice is obvious. Wings up and God bless our Republic, POTUS and Treepers!

  43. Rita Goodbook says:

    Family member from New Jersey suburb reporting house divided, husband for trump, wife wishy-washy leaning biden. No yard signs for either candidate, which is a good sign.

    • hokkoda says:

      I sit on the couch with the Mrs. and watch the Trump rallies on my ipad. She asked “Whatcha watchin’?” It was that video he has been showing on the Jumbo-tron, and she just laughed and said, “Why would anybody vote for Biden after that?”

  44. Janet Trump says:

    Central Florida, county went 62+ percent for Hillary. Not much for signs either way here. I always vote day of.

    Hillsborough County, Tampa: Son’s Cuban teacher GF voted for Gary Johnson in 2016. She just early voted for Trump because 1). Trump’s better on law and order–she’s freaked out by the riots. I KNEW that would be a factor for suburban women. 2). Biden’s a racist 😳 (she looked up his past comments). I knew she was a closet conservative when she said Trump should invade Mexico when the caravans were first coming up from Central America. No idea where her Cuban Republican never-Trumper dad stands (his father was a counter-revolutionary imprisoned by Castro for 8 years, go figure). Cuban mother MAY vote Trump.

    Libertarian son held his nose for Trump last minute in 2016 because Hillary, Gary Johnson was an idiot, and the Supreme Court. Now gets all decked out for MAGA rallies. If Trump would lock ’em all up and audit the Fed, Trump would truly be his God Emperor.

    Citrus County, strongly Republican. White lesbian 40-year-old first-time voter voted MAGA, and even dared to put it on Facebook.

    Daughter was on vacay in TN at the end of Sept. MAGA everywhere. They said behind some BLM tshirt folks who were just plain rude to the zip line workers because of the wait. If they only knew that they had 2 cops standing behind them the whole time. 😆

    Walmart here has finally opened both entrances and is staying open til 10 pm. There is now an outside speaker lecturing about covid-19 precautions, like we’ve never heard it before. Felt like I was in a Chinese re-education camp. 😡

    Husband was in Pinellas County (Gulf coast, Tampa/St. Petersburg. Freaked out by sudden appearance of many Biden signs. I spend a lot of time talking him off the ledge.

    Relatives in Nebraska and Iowa keep hearing how Florida is a petrie dish, while I hear the Midwest is doomed.

    MAGA takes Florida, folks.

    • hokkoda says:

      Yeah, we’ve had those announcements in stores here for 7 months (Colorado). It’s bizarre. Reminds me of that movie WALL-E where the Buy ‘N Large corporation would broadcast non-stop propaganda to the citizens.

      Trump won FL in 2016 when the official polls had him losing the state by several % points. I bet he gets over 50% this time and pulls away. I bet he pulls away in Ohio too.

  45. distracted2 says:

    I’m in CA. We are not allowed to vote in person until Tuesday so I haven’t voted yet. I will be going very early to hopefully avoid a long line. Will report again then.

  46. anniesezso says:

    North central Iowa here. Early voting opened October 5th. My family voted Trump next day. Many Trump yard signs displayed, had one stolen out of my yard (if I were younger and more savvy I would electrify its replacement), have seen not one for Biden. Two local farmers on major highway have gigantic Trump displays in their fields. This is Trump Country here, Iowa liberals are found to the east and south. May they all be struck by a bolt of patriotic intelligence before voting day, but Trump’s got this!!!

  47. Merkin Muffley says:

    Here in Cook County, Illinois, the long lines at the polls are gone. They disappeared after about 3 days of early voting.

  48. Blutarsky says:

    Zip 66206, leafy Kansas suburb of Kansas City. This well to do area has had Biden signage in a 10:1 ratio and more for down ballot Dems. Can’t take it at face value, though, as there are 90+% yards without signs. I just walked the dogs and overnight my immediate side neighbor has erected a Hollywood Hills sized three color TRUMP sign ostentatiously in the front yard. Very impressive artistry. I have wondered as to their political inclination as they are recent arrivals from Portland, Or.
    As I walked by another neighbor appeared to take pictures. Dems release endorphins with signage — Conservatives not so much. Biden signs don’t translate to voting %. We’ll be strong for Trump.

  49. toolnut says:

    Northern suburb of Chicago in heavily blue Cook County. My last report I mentioned no Trump signs and just a few Biden signs. When I talked to people a lot were for Trump but for various reasons no one was being very vocal for the President. So I was hopeful.

    Today I took my 92 year old mother to get her hair done and the hair stylist who is an immigrant who absolutely loves President Trump said that last Saturday a parade of Trump decorated cars drove right down the four lane road in front of the shop and it was miles long. She said it just kept going and going.

    A pretty good sign for my suburb.
