Elections are funny things. You can have information skewed by so many different parties that you have no idea what the correct answer is.
You turn on CNN for example and you have them making all kinds of grand predictions for Joe Biden. Of course, they do.
Then you have another network making a prediction for President Trump, albeit because they are actually trying to be fair about the whole thing. However, the only way to find out the truth is to see what people are actually doing.
The RealClearPolitics polling average, as of Tuesday morning, showed President Donald Trump down by 2.2 points in the swing state of Arizona.
Perhaps just as importantly, Democratic Senate candidate Mark Kelly led incumbent GOP Sen. Martha McSally by an average of 4.2 points in a race that could tip the upper chamber.
Both races were closing, although that hasn’t been uncommon for swing states in the run-up to the election Tuesday.
To be clear, the polls are far more scientific indicators than a Trump “car rally” — even one that drew several thousand vehicles.
Still, if I were rubbing my hands together with cartoon-villain glee over the prospect of turning Arizona blue this November, the fact there was not one but two car rallies that featured that many vehicles would be concerning data points when looking at voter enthusiasm.
According to AZFamily.com, an estimated 7,000 vehicles showed up in the Phoenix suburb of Peoria on Sunday for what supporters in Arizona called “The Trump Train.”
“The event began near Lake Pleasant Road and the 74 Sunday morning. Food trucks were set up at the staging area, along with music acts, speakers, and vendors selling Trump T-shirts and other MAGA memorabilia,” the outlet reported.
