RE: State of the 2024 Race


As anyone paying the slightest attention knows, there have been unprecedented indictments by the political opposition to the leading GOP candidate for President. But make no mistake, these are not just indictments against Donald Trump. They are indictments against millions of freedom-loving, hardworking Americans across this country. A handful of corrupt political bureaucrats decided to flex their political muscle and dared anyone to challenge them. They have weaponized a revered tenant of our federal system against a political opponent, just as is done in third-world nations. They think they have the system wired and that nobody can stop them. 


Well, they have met their match in President Donald Trump and the tens of millions of his supporters saying, “Enough is enough!”


These Deep State actors are hell-bent on marching your kids into another foreign war, taking away your rights under the Constitution, and leaving America’s sovereignty in question. The only thing in their way is President Trump and those willing to stand up, go vote, and be counted.


Recently, seeing that their unprecedented, coordinated, and politically timed indictments may not provide the results for which they had hoped, the Deep State, with their allies in the states, have launched unconstitutional efforts to remove President Trump from the ballot, thereby removing the opportunity for the voters to decide an election. Never in American history have these types of tactics been deployed by an opposition party.


Please make no mistake: Joe Biden and his allies are a real and compelling threat to our Democracy. In fact, in a way never seen before in our history, they are waging a war against it.


Many have said, “How, under these circumstances, does a campaign craft a message compelling Americans to be motivated to vote and win in November 2024?”


That question was answered months ago when President Trump described the politically driven indictments as nothing more than “election interference!”


How those two words manifest and play out is happening in real time throughout the country. Large sections of key longtime Democrat constituencies are defecting and lining up behind President Trump: African Americans, Hispanics, union members, younger voters – why?  


They know that in Donald Trump, they will get a fighter who loves this country and who will stop at nothing to Make America Great Again.


Great jobs and better opportunity.


America’s security and energy independence.


Respect around the world and promoting peace.


Economic strength and a growing economy.


When Americans head to the polls this month and beyond, these issues are on the ballot, and Americans are in the mood to send a powerful message.


That message is shown below with the most up-to-date polling averages from Real Clear Politics – and while no one poll is an indicator – averages tell a different story:


At the national level - Republicans have made clear that they reject the corruption inherent in the political indictments. President Trump holds a commanding 63% of the Republican vote, to DeSanctimonious’ 11%, Nikki Haley’s 4%, and Vivek’s 4%.


On average, President Trump is at 51% in Iowa, with DeSanctimonious and Haley tied at 18% and Vivek at 6%. The real battle is who will place second – when Nikki Haley’s resources from the pro-China crowd are rising, and DeSanctimonious’ money is drying up. Regardless of how well President Trump finishes in Iowa, the headlines will be about the second-place finisher so the media can make New Hampshire the flavor of the week.


In New Hampshire – where the RCP average, as of yesterday, has Trump at 46.3%, Haley at 24.8%, Christie at 10.5%, and Desanctimonious at 9.5% – we can expect the Nikki (not ready for primetime) Haley campaign to launch efforts designed to co-opt and take over a GOP nominating contest with non-Republicans and Democrats, hoping that a “Coalition of the unwilling” is enough to slow President Trump down.  


While the national media is focused on the upcoming horseraces in the first states, we are confident in our campaign’s hard work, plan to win, and, most of all, our candidate. 


And we are focused on the issues that matter to hardworking Americans like securing the Southern Border and stopping the Bidenvasion so they can feel safe in their neighborhoods, put food on their tables, put gas in their cars, have peace in the world, and put America First.
