SCOTUS Vacancy Gives Trump Tremendous Boost In Critical Battleground States, Data Analysis Says (5 Cartoons)

 While supporters of President Donald Trump are confident that he’ll clean Joe Biden’s electoral clock come November 3, it’s still critically important to not be complacent, especially with regard to a number of battleground states that can easily swing an otherwise predictable election in the opposite direction, very quickly.

Just ask Hillary Clinton about that.

But the 45th president just received a massive bit of fantastic news from those battleground states, according to the Washington Examiner. The fight over the new vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court has quickly risen to the top of social media discussions and as a result, has given what the Examiner called an “eleventh-hour jolt” to Trump’s numbers in battleground states.

“Coronavirus and the economy had been the issues driving a lot of the conversation online about this race, almost forever,” Republican digital strategist Adam Meldrum said, before explaining that the SCOTUS situation has significantly trumped those conversations over the past week.

The key? American voters — specifically Trump supporters — are excited. It goes without saying that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death is nothing less than a national tragedy, but Trump supporters are absolutely thrilled that they get to see their president make an unprecedented third pick for the High Court.

Meldrum gathered his data using help from a number of sophisticated Artificial Intelligence systems that he explained essentially can read what’s going on in the social media world like it’s a perpetual focus group, providing valuable information on what the real conversation and how people are leaning — unlike traditional political polls that are archaic and, oftentimes completely wrong.

The data derived from the software is so powerful and valuable that it can be used to formulate strategies to reach voters on a level never before seen in the political game.

But as far as how this information seems to be helping Trump solidify his support in battleground states like Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, Meldrum explained that the data showed the president is gaining “incrementally in a lot of the battleground states more [and] at a higher level than Vice President Biden.”

And that’s bad news for Biden, who has essentially hidden in his basement for the past six months and hasn’t managed to garner even a fraction of the excitement that Trump has in the same time period.

Meldrum made clear that the data isn’t a clear indicator on who will win or lose the election, but that it’s an increasingly important piece of information that can be used to take a scientific pulse of the national conversation online.

While traditional polling tends to currently favor Biden in most of the battleground states, only time will tell if those polls are as grossly inaccurate as they were for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

And if something as simple as yard signs are any indicator of who most Americans are rooting for, Biden has a lot of ground to make up in a very short amount of time.
