At The American Spectator, Scott McKay tells readers that requests for President Trump’s upcoming rally in Tulsa exceeded 1 million. He writes (abridged):
Monday morning the word came that Eventbrite pre-orders for seats at President Trump’s first campaign rally of the post-coronavirus craze have exceeded one million.
This for an event in an arena that seats 19,200.
It’s relatively clear that the president’s supporters are less than concerned about the potential exposure to the Wuhan virus being in such close quarters with strangers. That isn’t a great surprise given most of them are aware, likely having seen on television or on the internet, that political rallies and demonstrations are safe spaces from which it’s surely impossible for the virus to spread.
Gun sales have absolutely skyrocketed so far this year, something that is only accelerating.
Trump ought to note the Rasmussen poll from a few days ago that marked his approval rating among black Americans as above 40 percent. He should point to that to indicate there is a large segment of the black population that is not on board with the idiocy of the Black Lives Matter movement and also to indicate that the Democrats’ history of abuse of such a core constituency is finally about to earn them some punishment.
Trump needs to hammer home for weeks just how bad a job Democrats have done running America’s cities. The suburbs are where the 2020 election will be fought, and there is a reason people live in the suburbs rather than in town — virtually all of the ’burbs exist solely because of the poor governance in the cities, and we’ve never really had a national conversation about just how poor that governance is.
