From Dairy Country To Green Bay, Trump Radically Changed Wisconsin Politics. Can He Do It Again?

The Federalist

'There are two kinds of Democrats here: blue-collar Democrats and the sort-of intellectual elite Democrats who obviously didn't represent the blue-collar Democrats.'

 

EASTERN WISCONSIN — Rural Wisconsin is crossed with state highways, but you might not recognize them. Two-lane country roads dotted with red barns, granaries, and farmhouses, where passing is nearly always permitted if you feel the urge to tear around the loaded semis and tankers that rule these parts.

Shiloh Dairy is nowhere near the freeway, but Route 10 will take you within a stone’s throw. Nestled into the rolling countryside of  Wisconsin, 25 miles west of Lake Michigan and the same south of Green Bay, Gordon Speirs keeps more than 4,000 head of cattle here.:snip:

Western Wisconsin: Will Blue-Collar Trump Democrats Swing The State To Trump Again?

:snip:

Juneau County an hour to the east is just the kind of place that switched to vote for the president. While President Barack Obama won 53 to 46 in 2012, it swung 33 points four years later, awarding Trump a 61 to 35 victory.

We drove out to catch the tail end of an all-terrain vehicle Trump parade on Castle Rock Lake, where hundreds of Trump supporters showed up with fantastically decorated ATVs draped in flags and signage, some of it official campaign gear but much of it homemade.

The parade ended at the sprawling Shipwreck Bay bar, where young and old cracked beers, lit grills, and traded laughs in the mid-afternoon sun. You wouldn’t believe this is the type of place to go Democrat. But then, you can’t imagine anyone holding an ATV rally bedecked in Romney flags and pop art, either.

 

True to the feeling, most of the attendees weren’t involved in politics before Trump came along, organizer Tina Crawford tells us. She voted for Obama in 2008, but things have changed, including the priorities of both political parties.

Earlier in the summer, Crawford and her friends organized one of the boat parades sweeping the country. “It was a crappy day, but the turnout was still beautiful. People, they’re afraid to come out and say anything. A lot of them own businesses, they don’t want to state where they are because they don’t want to lose business. And so … we just put out our flags, Trump flags, everything, and we put them out on the water and we grilled out and just had an excellent, excellent time.”

So why not an ATV parade? “They went crazy for it,” she beams, telling how a few friends had pitched her on the idea and the following responses she’d heard. “It just blew up.”:snip:

Meanwhile over at The Hill

Team Biden's new strategy: Run out the clock

Amie Parnes

10/14/20

Call it the don’t-touch-anything strategy.

Team Biden knows they’re ahead against President Trump, with national polls showing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden above the 50 percent mark. And with under three weeks to go until Election Day, the campaign has been doing just enough to keep things where they are as the clock ticks down to Nov. 3.

“They don’t want to break anything in the last three weeks,” said one Democratic strategist. “If the election were held today, they would win. They know it, and more importantly, Trump knows it.” 

“To put it simply, they’re winning,” the strategist added. “And they don’t need to do much. They need to firm up their support and call it a game.”

In recent weeks, Biden has been traveling more than he had earlier in the pandemic — making short trips to key battleground states as he did on Tuesday when he traveled to Florida — but his campaign has usually limited events to one speech a day. Those speeches are largely the same and his campaign has all but avoided long-ranging, sit-down national interviews where he could be asked a prickly question. And last week, when Biden got into a political standoff with Trump over the format of the second debate, it was Biden’s team that said take it or leave it.

"Biden could be a turnip, and it's still better than Trump. the VAST majority knows that, and will vote accordingly...

Then we can get on with ACTUAL investigations and find out why Russia helped Trump and Republicans...

Oh and Trump better hire some really good defense lawyers, NY State is waiting for him.... I hear Sing Sing is nice in the spring... Maybe he'll have a view..."

While the political polls show Joe Biden with a commanding lead fewer than 30 days before the final election day, the crowd shots show a different story. President Donald Trump speaks to raucous rallies before tens of thousands, while Joe Biden voters social distance themselves in small numbers, enduring dry speeches from the career politician.

The weather here was cold and very very windy yesterday.  Trump had a rally in Janesville (my congressional district)  and had his usual crowds that stayed right through it. Mr G watched it on his phone.

Watched part of it last night. Still can't find photo's of the crowds at Biden or Harris rallies. I'm starting to think there Might be a reason for this. :D

Ben Shapiro isn’t the only one who did not vote for Trump in 2016 but will be doing so without hesitation in 2020. Democrats will join him, if they are willing to give credit where it is due, or if they are alarmed at the radicalism that has overwhelmed their party. Democrat Dov Hikind represented a Brooklyn district in the New York State Assembly for a generation. He makes the case:
