At Townhall.com, Trump campaign manager, Brad Parscale explains how data from the President’s rallies show a clear winning coalition in 2020. He writes (abridged):
If you want to get a better understanding of the type of people who make up President Trump’s coalition, try attending one of his rallies.
Contrary to the media’s straw-man portrayal of a stereotypical Trump voter, Keep America Great rallies attract voters of all demographic descriptions from across the political spectrum who have been uplifted by his policies.
These patriotic Americans love our country and everything it stands for. Trump supporters are not embarrassed by our founding, our history, or our Constitution. All they want is to live in a great America, and Donald Trump is the only leader who unabashedly shares that goal.
After attending dozens of Trump rallies throughout the country, I can definitively say that there is no politician in America who is capable of uniting voters like this president — and the data we’ve gathered from these events proves it. As I’ve been saying since 2016, data doesn’t lie.
Out of more than 20,000 identified voters who came to a recent Trump rally in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 57.9 percent did not have a history of voting for Republicans. Remarkably, 4,413 attendees didn’t even vote in the last election
The Milwaukee rally wasn’t exceptional in that respect. It was just like other rallies the president has held all over the country.
Nearly 22 percent of identified supporters at President Trump’s rally in Toledo, Ohio, were Democrats, and another 21 percent were independents. An astounding 15 percent of identified voters who saw the president speak in Battle Creek, Michigan, has not voted in any of the last four elections. In Hershey, Pennsylvania, just over 20 percent of identified voters at the rally were Democrats, and 18 percent were non-white.
