Minnesota Seemed Ripe for a Trump Breakout. It Has Not Arrived. NYT

DULUTH, Minn. — For a campaign event featuring Donald Trump Jr., the brash-talking, liberal-dunking namesake of the president, it was all rather mundane.

There was no large rally with thronging crowds, but a few hundred seats at a community center, each socially distanced. The signature Trump campaign playlist, usually blared at a volume that makes conversation impossible, was replaced by a selection of library-level soft rock.

“I like the crowds a little bit more packed and a little tighter, but we have to play by different rules, and that’s OK,” he told supporters.

It was not supposed to be this way. If any state is positioned to go from blue to red in 2020, to embrace the fullness of Trumpology and provide the president some much-needed Electoral College insurance, it is Minnesota.



Donald Trump Jr. drew a relatively sedate crowd to a recent campaign event in Duluth, Minn.

2. This Orange Puss Bag

still has support out in Collin Peterson's District at this time. But,that is because of the last round of Govermunt buy my vote checks that popped a couple weeks ago. Sad to say,these folks just do not have a friggin clue. All those corn and beans do not have a market.

BTW,these suckers still think Carter is to blame for their China Markets disappearing. Received several e-mails form Farm folks we know in south western Minny.

4. Our old Burg was always

DFL all the way until Michele the Fake showed her true Colors. Understand it has returned to the Blue Ledger. Amazing how the Religious Nut Bags can mess up a Good Thing.

5. As it was held in Duluth,

I would bet half the crowd was from Superior and surrounding Wisconsin towns.
