  • I totally agree with you on this and I would rather President Trump be lagging behind in the polls. As Rush used to say, the polls are often used to persuade many voters to stay home and not vote at all. That is the biggest problem with the Republican’ts every election. Kari Lake’s rally in Cave Creek was awesome and so was the Turning Point USA get together at Chompies. We networked with a lot of great, friendly, likeminded people. Thank you, Charlie!

  • Agreed , Charlie. The last few elections have taught us a few things: polls don’t mean votes, and votes don’t mean ballots. (Also, ballots don’t mean there were voters, if you know what I mean.) Therefore, the only pathway to victory must include on-the-ground ballot getters like Turning Point Action is hiring.

  • Charlie, I appreciate your perspective on the polling. I have mixed feelings about this. Part of me would like to accept your opinion. It is in line with Trump’s comment before the Iowa caucuses “act like we are 1% behind in the polls.” But I also feel like it is important to be projecting a sense of hope. Many grassroots conservatives are (understandably) downtrodden from the swamp and from the Republican party often snatching election defeat from the jaws of victory. It would make sense for Trump to be ahead in the polling. And he is currently. But is there a way of creating a sense of urgency that we need to be out doing the hard work of campaigning for Trump while also being optimistic that our candidate is favored to win over the extremely corrupt and incompetent President Biden?
