According to the polls, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is running away with the election and will easily dispatch President Donald Trump on November 3rd.
Sound familiar? It’s the same narrative that claimed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was going to win in 2016. But it ignores the Arizona rally Biden just had — and why it was a bust.
Some experts say the opposite is true of the media’s narrative, and it’s Biden’s campaign that is falling apart around him in real-time.
Conservative commentator Kevin McCullough said the enthusiasm gap between Trump and Biden’s base will be the deciding factor. Even when the president was hospitalized at Walter Reed Medical Center battling the coronavirus, for example, Trump’s supporters showed up and rallied.
Biden’s recent trip to the battleground state of Arizona had a much different reaction.
“Not a lot of fanfare out here,” Nicole Garcia of local station FOX10 said, reporting on the event in Pheonix. “There’s really not much to see. I’ll step out of the way, but it’s kinda boring out here. So, it’s not your typical presidential campaign event, we don’t see people rallying outside, we don’t see signs or really much of what’s going on.”
McCullough isn’t alone in predicting another upset. Conservative activist Wayne Allen Root said he’s conducted “Trucker Polls” and asked truck drivers who they see more enthusaism for in Middle America — and the results are overwhelmingly in favor of Trump.

“Folks, understand this: What polls say doesn’t matter. What people say to pollsters doesn’t matter. What matters is only the votes of people in a few key battleground states, in particular Florida and the Midwestern states of Ohio, Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania,” Root wrote in a Townhall opinion piece. “My fans tell me these states are 100 percent Trump country. In small towns and outer suburbs, you can’t find any support for Biden.”
Fox News’ Jesse Waters said it’s because Biden’s campaign strategy is failing. He’s “hammering Trump” on coronavirus — but doesn’t have a plan of his own.
