A few of months ago, Democrat candidates began their own races to the Democrat nomination in an effort to unseat President Trump come November of 2020. Part of the big headlines that were made apart from the actual announcements by the various candidates was just how much money they all raised in the span of a single day and even a single quarter.
For example, former Vice President Joe Biden made headlines for having raised $6.3 million on the first day of his candidacy. Failed Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke raised almost as much, at $6.1 million in his first day. Lunatic socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-USSR) raised $5.9 million in his first day.
And in the first quarter, Joe Biden bragged about having raised almost $20 million in that time span, in a fundraiser full of Wall Street donors, saying: “With your help, you’re going to allow me to be able to compete in a way that I’ve never been able to do before. We’ve raised a great deal of money.”
Well, if we are to consider money raised as a sign of excitement and enthusiasm for a candidate (and we will), then I suppose raising $24.8 MILLION in the span of 24 hours is a pretty great sign of enthusiasm.
GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel tweeted: “[Trump] has raised a record breaking $24.8M in less than 24 hours for his re-election. The enthusiasm across the country for this President is unmatched and unlike anything we’ve ever seen!”
Tim Murtaugh, the Director of Communications for the President’s 2020 campaign also tweeted: “Jaw-dropping numbers from the 24 hours of the day [Trump] announced his re-election campaign: $24.8 million raised. Do the math: that’s more than a million dollars an hour for an entire day. On top of an electric rally in Orlando, this shows huge Trump enthusiasm.”
And that last part also brings up a very good point: Trump has been filling up whole stadiums ever since 2016 and that doesn’t seem to have changed at all.
The President announced his bid for re-election in Orlando, Florida, in the Amway Center. That’s the same Amway Center where the Orlando Magic, an NBA team, play. And let’s not forget that back in October of last year, while holding rallies for Republican candidates for the midterm elections in Houston, Texas, Trump also filled up the Toyota Center, where the Houston Rockets, another NBA team, play.
The President fills up entire stadiums where sports teams play, while Democrat candidates struggle to fill out their own areas for speaking.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Well, Trump is the incumbent in this race. Of course he’s going to raise more money and fill up more seats. He’s the only Republican running!” And you would be correct in your thinking if it weren’t for the fact that this has basically been a trend ever since 2015, when Trump first announced his candidacy. He was still drawing huge crowds and raising plenty of money, despite the fact there were another 16 or so candidates also running.
There’s no doubt that Trump holds an advantage as the incumbent and being the only Republican running, but if Trump were in as much trouble as multiple polls claim he is, the amount of enthusiasm shown in Orlando alone wouldn’t have been quite as much.
The people of Orlando, as well as just about everyone who voted for Trump in 2016, still know for sure that CNN sucks, that Hillary Clinton should be locked up (and honestly, so should Barack Obama) and that we need to build the wall (which Trump is working very hard to do but there’s only so much he can do without Congressional help, something that falls on both parties). So the people who supported Trump in 2016 are still here, and more are likely to show out to vote, considering who he is running against and what he has had to face in the last couple of years.
Even The Daily Wire’s Erick Erickson tweeted that he’d rather vote for Trump (don’t know if he did in 2016, but I doubt it as he has always been a NeverTrumper to some extent) than for any of the “baby-killing socialists”, as he put it, currently running on the Democrat ticket.
Given that I have already stated that I believe this race will, in large part, be about the very soul of this nation, I think there will be some people who look at what the Democrats are running on – higher taxes, “free” everything which only leads to higher taxes, restricted free speech for political opponents of the Left, restricted religious freedom for bakery shop owners, legalizing actual infanticide, forcing female students to compete with males, etc. – and recognize the actual threat these people possess and come to the realization that they ought to be as far from political office as one can get. Because for all of people’s personal gripes with Trump (which are entirely petty, but to each their own), he is Ronald Reagan, Abraham Lincoln, Dwight Eisenhower and George Washington put together on steroids in comparison to Karl Marx’s All-Star team of Democrat candidates.
All of this is yet another reason not to trust the fake MSM polls that show what the Left hopes is reality. Never mind that these polls showed even worse numbers for Trump all throughout the 2016 campaign and were all incredulously wrong, never mind that the polls always tend to over-sample Democrats, an already well-known tactic used by Democrat pollsters, never mind that these are the same people who claimed for two and a half years that Donald Trump colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 Presidential election away from Hillary without any actual evidence, salivating at the idea that they might one day actually get something solid so they could impeach Trump. The fact that Donald Trump has raised a record-breaking amount of money for a single day as a candidate, far beating out their original $7 million goal and far beating out Joe Biden’s numbers from an entire quarter, AND he is still filling out entire stadiums used for sporting events shows the amount of enthusiasm for Trump hasn’t wavered in the least.
Of course, as I’ve been saying for some time now, it’s still too early to determine anything happening right now as being a big factor in 2020. An awful lot of things can change from here and Trump will eventually be facing one candidate, not making generalizations about what the Democrats are proposing (which he still can do if Biden is A) the nominee as most people expect him to be and B) runs on the same socialist crap all the others are running on because he’s a serial plagiarizer and does not have the mental capacity to formulate a single original thought).
But as things stand currently, Trump is off to a pretty great start for his re-election bid. I just hope and pray things stay like this and even get better as we go forward.
