    President Trump will speak at a rally at the Bullhead City International Airport in Bullhead City, AZ today. Are there any Arizona Glock Talkers attending?

    Interesting location. I wonder what the strategy is.

    Double dip. Hit AZ and NV in one stop.

    Overflow crowd

    I am about 3 hours away, in AZ, but I don't like crowds. We watched most of it live on TV (Fox News). Great speech! Air Force jet(s) flew over and he made several comments about how he loved that sound, we have the greatest equipment in the world, etc. And said Martha McSally is here- she is probably the only one in this crowd who could fly one of those. He has a lot of energy for someone who just kicked the China virus a couple of weeks ago. And he doesn't need no stinkin' teleprompter! As usual, lots of enthusiasm in the crowd. I am not usually big on listening to political speeches, but Trump is awesome!

    Trump is in trouble in the metro areas of the state - Phoenix and Tucson. AZ is an urban state population wise. He has to run up the AZ rural vote to help counter the metro areas if he is to win AZ.

    He needs NV to counter any potential losses of MI, WI, PA.

    I think it is a strategy of his campaign acknowledging he's in trouble. He should not have to be doing a rally in AZ within a week of the election - means he has to spend time/resources to make sure he wins. Also - look at his own comments in PA - saying he didn't expect/want to be there at this point in the election.

    You have to watch where the candidates are going this week, where they are spending money, and where they are not spending money. If they are not spending money in a state - they either feel like they've already lost it or won it. Same thing with the ralley locations of both candidates.

    The State of Nevada fined the campaign for violating their mask and social distancing rules when he had his rallies here. By having his rally on the AZ/NV border, it allowed people from the Vegas valley to attend the rally within a reasonable driving distance. Bullhead, AZ is just across the river from Laughlin, NV if you are not familiar with the geography.

    Republicans as a rule don't fare well in urban areas because the (D)im machine rules all. However, his support in Phoenix plus the OVERWHELMING support in central and northern Arizona is going to be plenty good enough to carry the state ... again.

    You want my personal anecdotal evidence? Six weeks ago when I did my first overt "sign count," it measured Trump 12, Yard Sale 1, Biden 0.

    Today the count was Trump 22, Biden 0. Trump appears to be capturing even the yard sale vote.

    According to NORAD, an unidentified aircraft entered the restricted airspace and the jet was scrambled. The jet dropped flares.

    The strategy is to win and hold the Senate. There is a tight race in AZ with McSally.

    Arizona Senate race could decide the balance. McSally is an "ehh" candidate who blew the 2018 race against a very iffy (D)im candidate, Kirsten Sinema. Flake retired (thank God) and Ducey appointed McSally.

    Mark Kelly is a nobody. His claims to fame are (1) "I was an astronaut" and (2) "Some nut job shot my wife in the face." He has refused to tell voters how he will vote on court packing, tax increases, border security, or any other issue that matters. He is an unattractive troll not intelligent enough to be voted dog catcher.

    I hear what you are saying.
    Trump voters are passionate about Trump. Biden voters are passionate anti-Trump (Not pro-Biden)...probably not fired up enough to put a Biden sign in their yard.

    It will be interesting in AZ next week.
    The Trump voter may register an 11 for passion for Trump - but its still only one vote. The question will be - is there enough rural AZ population to counter/carry AZ for DJT.

    You are in Prescott - very Red.
    I'm in Tempe - very Blue. I've counted 1 Trump sign in my neighborhood and a bunch of Biden/Harris signs.

    I think McSally is in trouble generally in the state overall.

    Like I said AZ will be interesting - and I think tight this year.

    Bullhead City is not large it is like a Single Fle on a Great Dane, people heard Trump would come, and people came to see Trump. Where ever Trump goes, the population grows, and he causes traffic jams.

    She should have creamed a nobody, Sinema, in 2018 and this would be much, much less of an issue. However, Trump's popularity will I think carry her across the finish line - barely.

    You are 100% correct that my area is very, very red. So red that (D)im candidates run bogus ads, "I like guns and support the 2nd Amendment." Liars.

    I think Trump wins the state. His crowds in my backyard and yesterday in Bullhead City show the support is vibrant.

    And as you know, a lot of us don't put our Trump flags or bumper stickers out simply to avoid the A-holes. So my 22-0 count probably reflects a 200-5 real vote.

    Two weekend ago there was a caravan of Cars, Trucks, and Motorcycles driving around the State of AZ, ADOT estimated is was stretched out for 30 - 35 miles. Trump has some follower in AZ.

    He is planning another event in Western Maricopa County near Goodyear, my friend live near venue, he said this am 8 hour before the traffic to get to the venue was wall to wall CRS, trucks, bicycles, etc.
