Forget the Polls: Massive Enthusiasm Gap Between Trump and Biden Bodes Ill for Democrats

Although Joe Biden continues to lead President Trump in most national polls, the enthusiasm gap between the two candidates could not be more striking. The situation is reminiscent of the 2016 race, only there is even less enthusiasm for Biden than there was for Hillary Clinton.

Trump draws huge crowds wherever he appears while Biden can barely muster a few dozen socially distanced quasi-supporters at his meager, tightly scripted events.

As American Greatness previously documented, massive grassroots pro-Trump boat parades have been a thing all year, although they have been mostly unnoticed or ignored by the national media.

Since this spring, tens of thousands of Trump supporters (at least!) have participated in these massive, record-breaking nautical events, giving conservatives an opportunity to support the president safely and have a ball at the same time.

There have been countless more boat parades for the president all across the nation since Labor Day weekend:


An estimated 1,600 boats participated massive boat parade on Table Rock Lake near Branson, Missouri on Sept. 5. On the opposite side of the lake about 300 more boats sailed in support of the president, according to the Branson Globe.

A “Trumptilla” made waves in the Washington DC area over labor Day weekend:

San Diego held another Trump boat parade:

They just keep happening all over the place.

The media did its best to ignore this latest round of Trump boat parades, but a flotilla on Lake Travis in Texas did catch the New York Times’ eye because a few small boats capsized due to the massive number of vessels producing giant waves.

After ignoring the boat parades all year, The Times jumped on the Lake Travis story because it delivered that delicious anti-Trump schadenfreude its liberal readers crave. At Least 4 Boats Sink During ‘Trump Boat Parade’ in Texas, the headline sneered.

Newsweek meanwhile tut-tutted that the Labor Day weekend pro-Trump boat parades were being held “amid the COVID-19 pandemic” as if the boats were somehow guilty of violating social distancing rules.

In addition to the flotillas, conservatives have also been holding patriotic caravans to show their support for the president. These massive displays are another pro-Trump phenomenon that are being massively ignored by the MSM.

“I don’t think this enthusiasm is being properly measured in polls,” said Cuban-American director/producer Robby Starbuck.

Over the weekend, Hispanics held a massive pro-Trump caravan in Miami.

Meanwhile in Las Vegas, a city that is nearly 33 percent Latino, Biden supporters were unable to muster even 20 vehicles for a caravan that was supposed to showcase Hispanic support for the former vice president.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal dutifully covered the modest pro-Biden event, making sure to note that the puny parade at least ended “peacefully.”

“The roughly 20-car caravan drove down Las Vegas Boulevard to Trump International Hotel, where they honked their horns, waved their signs and played patriotic music before heading home peacefully,” the Review-Journal reported.
