2020 Vision: TONS of Democrats Turned Out for Trump’s Michigan Rally
President Trump’s lively rally in Grand Rapids, MI last week attracted a large number of Democrats, according to his campaign manager, Brad Parscale.
Parscale was speaking to Fox News’ Jesse Watters on Saturday when he dropped the news that 34 percent of rally attendees were Democrats.
“We had tens of thousands of registrants, I believe 34% of the people who came to the Michigan rally were Democrats,” said Parscale, adding “Almost half had only voted once in the last four elections.”
Parscale also said “blue collar Democrats, African Americans and latinos” were well represented at the event.
The campaign manager explained that all rally attendees are required provide their cell phone numbers before entering the event which enables the campaign to connect to their voter files.
“We know exactly how they voted in the past,” he said.
When Watters asked if the campaign was still harvesting information on “new voters, first time voters, Independents and Democrats,” Parscale responded, “I’m harvesting nearly a million voters data information in key swing states every month.”
“That must terrify the Democrats,” said Watters.
“Yeah, we are. Put it this way, we are four times ahead of where we were in 2016 and I plan on being 6 to 8 times ahead in data, that’s tens of millions of records.”
Parscale told Axios that 70 percent of the Feb. 11 rally attendees who registered were Hispanic, while 50 percent were Democrats, 25 percent were Republicans and 25 percent were swing voters.
Parscale said, “Our data shows that President Trump is building a coalition that extends far beyond the traditional Republican base….His fight to secure the border and finally finish the wall clearly energized and led to a significant amount of Democrat and Independent swing voters to attend his rally in El Paso.”
