According to the Washington Post, Donald Trump is now leading Hillary Clinton 47% to 46% as 3rd Party enthusiasm begins its inevitable decline. Every time we make the mistake of counting Donald Trump out, he proves us wrong. There is absolutely no reason anyone, other than his loyal populist supporters, should have expected Donald Trump to win the Republican Nomination. There was even less of a reason to expect that he’d win the White House. Heading into the final week, Donald Trump is in the lead…again.
Now, this does not mean that Donald Trump is leading in all the States he needs to win. This is why Trump is in Pennsylvania today. Meanwhile, President Obama, Vice-President Biden and Secretary Clinton are campaigning in Ohio, North Carolina and Florida. These campaign strategies tell us everything we need to know about how these two camps feel about their chances. By election day, I believe that Donald Trump wins Florida, North Carolina and Ohio. The question is, can he win either Pennsylvania or Virginia?
Even with the Clinton Campaign in full panic mode and democrat voters feeling more discouraged than ever, Donald Trump is going to have to out perform the polls. To accomplish this, Donald Trump must win the turn out game – which means that needs his supporters to be more enthusiastic than Clinton’s supporters.
The tracking poll finds little shift in Clinton’s overall support following news of the FBI’s renewed look at Clinton e-mails, but strong enthusiasm among her supporters fell behind Trump in combined Saturday and Sunday interviews. By 53 to 43 percent, more Trump supporters say they are “very enthusiastic” about him, compared with Thursday and Friday when Trump’s edge was negligible (53 percent vs. 51 percent). -WPO
Enthusiasm is key and I’m beginning to believe.
I am beginning to believe that Hillary voters might stay home on November 8th. Wherever the Democrat Machine isn’t busing people to the polls, I think the Democrats could be in serious trouble.
We’ve counted Donald Trump out from the moment he announced. We said he wasn’t a serious candidate. We said he couldn’t win the nomination. We said he was the only candidate that couldn’t beat Hillary. Every time we dismiss this man and his hold on the American People, we are shocked and surprised by his victories.
2016 – The Cubs could win the World Series and Donald Trump, a billionaire playboy from Queens, New York could be the next President of the United States of America. For the True Believers, this isn’t news. For the rest of us, all we can do is watch in astonished bewilderment.
