Yesterday, Ivanka Trump was in Fort Meyers, Florida campaigning for her Dad. Three states away, Kamala Harris was campaigning in deep blue Asheville, North Carolina.
And the difference in crowd size between these two events couldn’t be more stark.
How bad is it for Biden/Harris that even Ivanka Trump can draw more people than the Democrat’s Vice Presidential candidate?
You know, there’s a reason Kamala Harris had to drop out of the primary two months before Iowa. Even Democrat voters just weren’t that into her.
Did the Biden Campaign really believe when they selected her as Joe’s running mate that something had changed? Because nothing has changed.
Last night, most folks on Twitter were comparing Kamala’s teeny, tiny North Carolina audience yesterday afternoon with President Trump’s North Carolina rally yesterday evening.
And, really, who can blame them.
I mean look at this crowd:
I’m sure some cranky Biden voter will say “That’s not fair! Trump is the top of the ticket! You shouldn’t compare Trump and Kamala; she’s only Biden’s running mate!”
Okay, here’s President Trump’s running mate Mike Pence in Ohio yesterday.
But that’s not the point, is it? The point is Ivanka Trump isn’t on the ticket at all, and still she can draw more people than Joe and Kamala combined.
And it isn’t just Ivanka. The same holds true for whenever Eric Trump, Lara Trump or Don Junior hold a campaign event.
In fact, enormous crowds gather to show their support for Trump even when nobody from the Trump campaign is scheduled to appear. Just think of the boat parades and car parades we’ve been seeing over the last several weeks.
The best Team Biden could garner by way of a car parade was three measly cars – and that was even with Mrs. Biden and Mr. Kamala on hand to wave to them.
And yesterday, when Team Biden deployed their “Big Gun?” The same Big Gun who used to draw thousands when he spoke?
Well, here’s Big Gun Barack Obama yesterday speaking through a bullhorn to a handful of people in Philly.
.@BarackObama told community organizers the importance of their work and encouraged them to “work as hard as you can” in these final weeks. He also stressed the need to stay safe and wear a mask, joking that he wears it even though “it accentuates how big” his ears are. pic.twitter.com/3Pb1v7OVI5— Marianna Sotomayor (@MariannaNBCNews) October 21, 2020
Who needs a bullhorn to talk to a small assembled gathering only ten feet away from him?
After that, just like Biden and Harris have been doing lately, Obama talked to a bunch of cars in a parking lot.
I’m beginning to suspect the reason they’re doing “car rallies” is since cars take up far more space than people, it make it look more full when in reality, it’s a drop in the bucket compared to the Trump campaign’s crowds.
I know I keep saying this. But never underestimate the importance of voter enthusiasm.
And going into this election, the enthusiasm is with President Trump, not with Sleepy Joe and his inauthentic, cackling running mate.
