The day before the election and what do we know? The Movement is all in Trump’s direction

You used to read a lot about “synthetic grassroots,” once described as “only an echo of a sophisticated pitch by professional lobbyists .” In other words, cynical and top down.

Real grassroots movements produce activism from towns and cities across the land. Genuine and bottom up.

No better example of this could be found than the Right to Life Movement, specifically, NRLC which has 50 state groups and over 2,500 chapters. 

National Right to Life has been very, very active. After the election is over, we will fill you in. You will be immensely proud of what we did—with your invaluable assistance!—to help the babies.

Oscar  Wilde once said, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.” But there is more to the quote. “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.”

Although the pro-abortion, pro-Biden imitation is loaded with money and assisted by a compliant media, it is mediocre, inauthentic, and lifeless.

I bring this up the day before the election for two reasons. One, our people, the women, men, and children who volunteer their time and talents unceasingly on behalf of our Movement, will play a pivotal role in deciding whether pro-life President Donald Trump returns for a second term or is defeated by pro-abortion Joe Biden. 

We’ve delivered the deciding increment many times before and our Movement’s output this year surpasses anything we have done before.

The second reason is the amazing army of Donald Trump supporters, When you read Byron York and especially Salena Zito, you understand perfectly why the elites, overwhelmingly pro-abortion, instantly turn to the most vicious epithets. 

Could they generate car and truck and passenger van caravans that literally go on for miles and miles and miles? Could they produce thousands of people at rally after rally, loyalists whose support of President Trump enrages the networks and Hollywood and the New York Times?

“Deplorables” is a compliment compared to what Trump supporters are called today. With that kind of hate directed our way, it’s not surprising that they don’t even bother to try to hide their threats of violence if Biden doesn’t win. Indeed, the more blatant they are, the more they think they can intimidate us.

Are they in for a surprise.

Here are the quotes for the day. As always, I could easily add six more.

*“The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove”Rasmussen Reports

*“The latest Trump vs. Biden poll shows a much tighter race between former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump with just one day to go. The IBD/TIPP presidential poll suggests Trump has widened his advantage among rural voters, nosed ahead among independents, and narrowed the gap among black and Hispanic voters”IBD/TIPP Presidential Tracking Poll

“ugh Iowa is not even necessary for Biden, why does anyone care….

“Because it shifted so much in a month so it’s concerning about the rest of the polls of other states. Are they capturing the states correctly? Is there a Trump surge? People can’t get over 2016 and with the horror of this president, how could we?!!!”— Twitter exchange after a Des Moines Register poll found that Trump had taken a 7 point lead over Biden who “has faded.”

 *“I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again — elections are won on the ground, not in the air”—Ed Morrissey []

*“Democrats really needed to run up the score in early voting in order to overcome the large Trump leaning turn-out expected for Election Day. At this point, in 5 of the 12 Battleground States, Republicans currently lead in early returns, including in Texas, Georgia, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Short of a massive Dem turnout on Tuesday, those states all fall to Trump. Furthermore, Dems only lead by 1 point in returns in Arizona, 3 points in Nevada, 2 points in Florida, and 5 points in North Carolina. Should the DOE [Day of Election] vote carry for Trump in those states, Trump should win those states as well. If Trump wins those states, He ends up with 284 electoral votes, and the biggest part of that is that leaves Pennsylvania, Iowa, and Minnesota on the table”Scott Hounsell


*“Yes, there is a hidden Trump vote”—Byron York

Let’s wrap some of these fascinating numbers together. Everybody knows the race it tightening which is why several of the usual suspects are adamant it’s a blow away for the former vice president. But note this.

The IBD/TIPP presidential poll was among the most accurate polls in 2016. Today they are telling us that although Biden leads 48.8 to 45.6, Trump is slicing away and has “widened his advantage among rural voters, nosed ahead among independents, and narrowed the gap among black and Hispanic voters.”

According to their latest survey, Mr. Trump is receiving 13% of the Black vote which 7 points higher than 2016 but (I’m predicting) several points lower than he will get. Consider. If there are “shy” white voters, given the near monolithic Black vote for Democrats over the years, how much more pressure is there on Black men and women not to admit they’re going to vote for Trump?

But Trump is receiving 47% of the Hispanic vote! You see confirmation of this in poll after poll in Florida and Arizona.

And it’s very noteworthy that The Trafalgar Group, which predicted Trump’s victory in 2016, has the President up two points in Pennsylvania [47.8%-45.9%) and 2 ½ points in Michigan (48.3% to 45.8%).

I added the quote that Ed Morrissey made last week to emphasize something we’ve written about dozens of times. Biden’s campaign got into the door to door game in the last couple of weeks. President Trump’s campaign has been organizing personal visits/door knocking for a long, long time. 

In late October, the GOP chair in Minnesota (my home state and my dark horse to flip to Trump) said they had knocked on its one millionth door! “Trump supporters have been knocking 2.5 million doors each week across the country,” the Minnesota Sun reported on October 20.

Add to that what we quoted Peter Nicholas writing about last  Friday—Minnesota Democrats estimate that as many as 250,000 white residents who didn’t go to college—the heart of Trump’s base—weren’t registered to vote in 2016. Republicans are taking pains to find them”—and the pump is primed for an upset.

And add to that years and years of investment by the Trump team in social media, and the Washington Post is reduced to bitterly complaining about  “Trump’s viral megaphone fueled by [its]Twitter arm.”

Have you voted? Have your pro-life family and friends voted? Please be sure if they have not voted in advance, they do so tomorrow.
