Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has pretty much wrapped up the nomination and will take on President Donald Trump in November.
While Democrats feel confident that Biden can defeat Trump, a new poll reveals that support for the former vice president may be much softer than the media is letting on.
A new piece from PJ Media’s Stacey Lennox details how Team Trump has a gigantic social media following compared to that of Biden, and it should terrify Democrats going into November.
For example, Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale announced this week that over 1 million people requested tickets to see Trump’s rally.
Lennox details why this is such a big deal:
This is for a rally in an arena that holds 19,000. If the campaign holds true to form, there will be large screens for those unable to get a seat to watch from outside. But the key to the operation is in Parscale’s tweet. It is the biggest data haul to date.
What does this data give them? The opportunity to register people who are interested in the rally to vote who are not already registered. The ability to contact these potential voters throughout the rest of the campaign with updates and fundraising efforts. The information to ensure absentee ballots and in-person voting happen right through the close of the polls on Election Day.
This is just part of the robust digital effort the campaign is using.
Team Trump is trouncing Biden so badly that even the left-wing Washington Post published a piece last month detailing it:
In some ways, the Biden campaign is years behind on this kind of engagement. By this point in the 2012 campaign, Obama’s team had established a popular video series in which deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter shared good news and debunked Republican attacks. There’s no such block-and-tackle effort from the Biden social media experience, apart from the occasional tweet responding to the Trump campaign — and no Trump-style points for helping get the message out.
