President Donald Trump rallied in Las Vegas on the eve of the Nevada caucus, continuing to troll Democrats by holding rallies before their primaries.
Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale has made a habit out of collecting data on the attendees to Trump’s rallies, and the numbers from those at Las Vegas shows President Trump continuing to attract a broad coalition of voters heading into the November election. Most relevant, he found that 18% of attendees were Democrats, and 32% didn’t vote in 2016. The majority of Americans don’t vote, so the fact that Trump is drawing in those who previously haven’t gives him an edge Democrats don’t have.
Excellent quick rally this afternoon in Las Vegas before heading home!
✅ 15,079 Voters Identified (73% from NV)
✅ 32% Didn’t Vote in 2016 (4,743 voters) Wow!
✅ 27% Blacks, Latinos or Non-white
✅ 18% Democrat

That’s consistent with the data from Trump’s other most recent rallies:
- At President Trump’s rally in Ohio, nearly half of attendees were either Democrats or independents. Twenty-three percent identified as Democrats, while 20.9% identified as independents.
- At Trump’s rally in Wisconsin, the majority of attendees (57.8%) were not Republicans.
- At Trump’s rally in New Jersey, 26.3% of attendees were Democrats, and 10% didn’t vote in 2016.
- At Trump’s in New Hampshire, 25% of attendees were Democrats, and 17% didn’t vote in 2016.
- And at President Trump’s rally in Arizona, 18% of attendees were Democrats, and 26% didn’t vote in 2016.
How many moderates or Republicans critical of Trump (of which there are few) do Democrats think they’ll win over with a socialist as their nominee? Probably close to zero.
