How Trump’s Going After Blue States and Will Slaughter Opponents
President Trump will be stopping off for a campaign rally in New Mexico next week and is very aware it is a robust Blue State. The last Republican candidate to win New Mexico was former President George W. Bush in 2004.
President Trump lost to Hillary by only 8 points which was the closest any Republican came since Bush won the state against John Kerry. There is new math taken into consideration and a strategy the president will use to win states like New Mexico, which can slaughter his opponents in the presidential race.
Polls or no polls, the strategy seems almost foolproof as the president has an ace up his sleeve. We have all heard the saying, “Money Talks.” That is something the president’s campaign is not short on. The Trump campaign will announce an additional background staff and a state director which will strategize on flipping the Blue States to the Red States.
New Mexico has a Hispanic population of 49.1 percent, and the proven strategy will play in his favor according to the internal campaign data. President Trump’s political advisors say they will energize the Hispanic voters on the growing economy which the state has picked up on. It will sway a large percentage toward voting for Trump in 2020.
The strategy is focused on winning the states that Hillary won in 2016 with proven statistics in each state the president visits on the campaign trail. Money which is picked up from the campaign will be put into full force in these areas.
The president’s son-in-law, who is also the Senior White House Advisor, Jared Kushner, stated, “I can see us very aggressively playing in 18 swing states.” In 2016, number-wise, Kushner said, “It seriously played in 11 swing states. It is set to do more in the 2020 election.
President Trump has over $100 million on hand in the campaign, and where he may lack in states which vote Blue no matter what, he can still come up with turning over the votes toward him with the proven statistics on the economy alone.
The states Trump lost in 2016 by just a small margin will win over the states he needs to win by mobilizing support through the campaign funds. No other candidate in any party comes close to the amount of money he has invested in the 2020 race.
Kushner explained, “What matters is having the resources to invest in the best people and data to give the candidate every advantage. Last time we had a better air game than ground game. This time, we’ve had a couple of years to prepare. We’ve refined our data and political operation. We’ve invested $50 to $60 million over the last couple of years to make the data significantly better.”
A full-time state director was hired in June, but the name has not been made public at this time. In states where Democrats have claimed in past elections, they are now noticing the voter registrations are switching over to Republican. This is a positive outlook which the news media will never tell the public, and the statistics do not lie on the recorded data.
Another issue the Trump campaign is working on is bringing Trump supporters to unification which will turn over the Blue States like New Hampshire and Nevada, to the Red States. These are also states Trump lost to Hillary by only one to two percent of the votes.
Hillary beat Trump by a wide margin in Maine and New Mexico. This is the reason for the campaign hiring ground staff to work in these states and collect all the data necessary to win this time around. The political director for the Trump campaign stated, “We feel very optimistic about New Mexico.”
Bill Stepien, another senior political advisor, said, “It costs a lot of money to invest in infrastructure and set up a headquarters. The campaign wouldn’t be considering doing that if New Mexico wasn’t a place where the numbers could add up.”
He added, “We are talking about some states that may not be in play a year from now, but the beauty of this year is that we can test, we can poll, we can see, you know, what takes root. We can see what staff are connecting with volunteers. We can see what states are adopting and executing programs that we are implementing.”
If these statistics hold true, President Trump will win in a landslide in the 2020 election.
