-Trump is about to BEAT THE DEMS AT THEIR OWN GAME!
-The SoCal Ballot Harvesting model is PROVEN AND EFFECTIVE!
-This could seal the deal for 2024
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that President Trump’s team is now ALL-IN on ballot harvesting strategies to counter Democrat advantages in early and mail-in voting! According to the Journal, Trump’s staff are actively reviewing state laws on absentee and mail-in voting and ballot harvesting so as to maximize the Republican vote in 2024! Ballot harvesting is the practice in which political operatives collect absentee ballots from voters’ homes and drop them off at a polling place or election office. And every state has their own laws regarding ballot harvesting; so for example, in California, you can come to the polls with as many ballots as you want, as many as you can personally carry, and drop them off, no questions asked! It’s that insane! And so, what the Trump team is doing is they’re studying the various state laws, and constructing an overall plan to exploit those laws to Trump’s own advantage! In a fundraising email this week, President Trump announced, “The radical Democrats have used ballot harvesting to cancel out YOUR vote and walk away with elections that they NEVER should have won. But I’m doing something HUGE to fight back.” The email added, “Our path forward is to MASTER the Democrats’ own game of harvesting ballots in every state we can. But that also means we need to start laying the foundation for victory RIGHT NOW.”
Now, the model strategy that everyone in the Republican party is talking about right now it’s what’s known as the SoCal Ballot Harvesting strategy; it’s a strategy coming from Shawn Steele, the Republican National Committeeman from California. He’s a very savvy political tactician, his wife Michelle Steele won her House race in California’s 48th district, which if you don’t know, is a plus-5 Democrat district! It’s a northwest Orange County district that Biden carried by 6 points! But the Republican, Michelle Steele, won by utilizing this ballot harvesting tactic, which effectively neutralized her Democrat opponent’s early mail-in vote advantage and she’s not alone! Remember, Republicans control the House right now precisely because of all these wins in California, where ballot harvesting is the legal norm! It was in fact Kevin Kiley, the winner of California’s 3rd District, who put the GOP at 218 seats and in control of the House! And the reason why California is key here is because they were the first state to make mass ballot harvesting legal. We have to remember that back in 2018, that was the first election, a midterm election, where California Democrats used the strategy of ballot harvesting, and they absolutely clobbered the Republicans. They picked up a whole host of seats that ended up making Pelosi speaker, and back then, like now, the Republican establishment was whining that it was all Trump’s fault!
But California Republicans didn’t go there; they recognized that they got crushed NOT because of a person, but because of the lack of a plan! They realized it wasn’t Trump, it was tactics that beat them in the end! So they adapted, particularly Southern California Republicans, that’s why it’s called the SoCal strategy; and began to employ the same tactics that Democrats use with their constituencies but now with Republican constituencies so as to maximize their vote! So what is it? What are they doing to win these elections across the board?
California Republicans have been beating the Democrats at their own game by making conservative evangelical churches their absentee ballot-centers. Drop boxes are being placed in the middle of churches throughout the districts, the parishioners are instructed on how to sign the ballot, and church administrators take the drop boxes directly to the register of voters! So the whole process is streamlined; there are clear instructions as to how to fill out the ballot, and because it involves church staff and administration taking the ballots to the polling centers, there’s a great deal of confidence among parishioners that their votes are being handled responsibly and counted, with a clear chain of custody protocol being followed! BUT, drop boxes aren’t just being put at the center of churches, it’s gun shops, it’s sporting and hunting shops, it’s any and all kinds of places where patriots hang out! One republican strategist reported that back in 2020, Republicans used a drop box to collect over 12 thousand ballots from one single church alone in Southern California! Keep in mind, Kari Lake lost by 17 thousand votes! One church could have largely rectified that! This is the SoCal Ballot Harvesting strategy, and it’s worked two elections in a row!
In the 2020 election, California Republicans flipped 4 House seats and by BIG margins too! And they did it again in the 2022 midterms! And this is because, we have to remember that Evangelical voters, depending on how you define ‘Evangelical’, but generally speaking, evangelicals make up anywhere from a quarter to a third of the national vote which is HUGE! White evangelicals make up the bulk of that percentage, and the AP VoteCast survey found that 80 percent of White evangelicals voted for Trump in both 2016 and 2020. So we’re talking about a HUGE voter base that with ballot harvesting can be maximized to its fullest! So whoever the GOP nominee is for 2024, I think it’s going to be Trump hands down, but whoever it is, strategic ballot harvesting tactics are going to be key to taking back the White House; who would ever have imagined that it would be California Republicans showing us the way to do it!
