If you predicted a Trump Landslide for the 2020 elections, you were 100% correct. Donald Trump exceeded all expectations on the voting front, so far, collecting almost 70 million votes and counting.
In an article last week, I predicted a so-called red wave. In my estimations, Donald Trump was going to significantly increase his support in all the swing states and even turn Nevada and New Mexico red.
I was not wrong! What might be seen as a desperate attempt to cover my tracks, upon further inspection, is actually an accurate assessment.
In 2016, Donald Trump won 1,252,401 votes in Arizona, in this election so far the President has 1 482 062.
In 2016, Trump lost Nevada to Hillery, who won 539,260 votes. In this Election, so far, Trump is trailing Biden with 592 813 votes.
President Trump trails Biden but his tally so far is still greater than Clinton’s victory 2016, sitting at 400 095 in 2020 compared to Clinton’s 385,234.
In every other state, the situation is much the same. Donald Trump has seen his support skyrocket vastly across the board. His total vote count even shattered Obama’s record in 2008.
Where did we go wrong?
Altho we were correct in recognizing Donald Trump’s massive increase in support, we failed to see the somewhat silent mass (Should it be legitimate) that supports Joe Biden. Why were they so silent? Why did they stay away from Biden rallies? And where were all these people in 2016?
Several weeks ago, the Biden campaign hosted an event in Phoenix Arizona, an event marking the beginning of a campaign across the country for the duo. Local reporters noted the lack of local enthusiasm:
“Not a lot of fanfare out here,” FOX10 reporter Nicole Garcia said, standing in front of the Heard Museum in Phoenix. “There’s really not much to see. I’ll step out of the way, but it’s kinda boring out here. So, it’s not your typical presidential campaign event, we don’t see people rallying outside, we don’t see signs or really much of what’s going on.”
Comparatively, Trump rallies were like rock concerts, packed to maximum capacity and still some leftover:
Sad Truth @Millie__Weaver , crowds as far as the eye can see for President Trump vs Rally for Biden where he couldn't even fill in 2 dozen ridiculous circles… / The Fix Was In! 🤬 pic.twitter.com/x2vSX6ULDO

Altho one should take Covid-19 into account, there seemed to be absolutely no real energy behind the scandal-plagued Biden campaign.
How did Biden get away with the laptop scandal? Say what you like about it, but the media did censor the Hunter Biden scandal. A grand failure of the American news networks.
British media with many more details about major scandal that is being censored by US media because of their firm belief it will hurt their preferred candidate. "Strangely, the story got little traction in the US media. Stranger still, …" https://t.co/yj1ic8XPTP
