If anything, what we are seeing in the closing moments of this race is more passion than ever for President Trump.
Some of you have noted to me that the support seems more fervent than it was in 2016.
This is another reason I believe Trump is going to win, in addition to those I cited in my piece for NBC News.
I submit that there has been no president in the modern era, and perhaps ever, has been elected as a protest against the other candidate and not because of who they are. Let’s face it. Nobody cares about Joe Biden. Nobody cares what he wants or what he says. Supporters will vote for him because he is not Donald Trump or because they think he will be influenced by the leftists who will surround him. And his opponents will vote against him for the same two reasons, only with the added dimension that they like Donald Trump and what he stands for.
There is no passion for Biden. No lines of people waiting to see him, no throngs of admirers eager to risk Covid-19 to touch him. It’s not clear to me whether he refuses to stage rallies because he is adhering to doctors’ orders or because he’s afraid nobody will show up.
