(TargetLiberty.org) – President Trump’s reelection campaign got a boost on Tuesday, when RNC chair Ronna McDaniel revealed audience data from his October 13 rally in Sanford, FL. There’s never been any doubt the president can mobilize his core supporters, but going by Monday’s event, his message is resonating a lot more widely than that.
Fantastic data from @realDonaldTrump’s rally in Sanford:
✅ 15,852 voters identified
✅ 31.8% were NOT Republicans
✅ 16.3% were Democrat
✅ 24.4% did not vote in 2016
✅ 14.4% did not vote in the last 4 elections
Thank you, Florida!

Monday’s rally was Trump’s first since his bout with coronavirus, and it seems to have brought in a diverse audience. McDaniel says almost 32% of attendees weren’t Republicans – and half of those were registered Democrats. The audience also included many who don’t regularly vote – 24.4% didn’t vote in 2016 and 14.4% have sat out the last four elections.
Previous rallies have also brought in a lot of uncommitted or occasional voters, with up to a quarter of each audience being Democrats. If the president is energizing people who lost interest in politics more than a decade ago, his campaign has a lot more momentum than many people assume.
