On Nov. 3, 2020, the American people cast their ballots to decide the next president of the United States. Although the official results were still being counted, it was clear that incumbent President Donald J. Trump had received a record number of votes from the Grand Old Party (GOP) in the state of Arizona.
Trump’s success in Arizona was a testament to his unwavering commitment to conservative principles and his ability to connect with voters on a personal level.
Despite facing unprecedented challenges, including Covid-19 and widespread civil unrest, the president remained focused on his message of economic growth, national security, and personal freedom.
Spokeswoman Liz Harrington elucidated the point in a recent post, tweeting that:
Throughout his campaign, Trump promised to protect Arizonans’ Second Amendment rights, secure the nation’s borders, and deliver a robust economic recovery. He also recognized the importance of supporting law enforcement and addressing the opioid epidemic that has ravaged many communities across the state.
His success in the state is a clear indication that the GOP is still a party that values traditional conservative principles and is willing to fight for them.
As reported by RSBN, a forensic document analyst and expert who worked on the Maricopa County, Arizona, audit following the 2020 presidential election is calling out discrepancies across thousands of ballots that potentially affected the outcome of the election results. It reported that “in Maricopa County, for example, Speckin identified an overwhelming oddity of 58 of 61 batches of 200 ballots that were cast largely for Joe Biden in a decades-long red county in 2020.”
Moving forward, it will be critical for the GOP to build on Trump’s success in Arizona and continue to promote conservative policies that resonate with the American people. This will require a concerted effort to engage voters at the grassroots level, build a strong coalition of supporters, and address the concerns of all Americans, regardless of their political affiliation.
Donald Trump’s record-breaking vote count in Arizona is a testament to his unwavering commitment to conservative principles and his ability to connect with voters on a personal level. Despite facing unprecedented challenges, the president remained focused on his message of economic growth, national security, and personal freedom, resonating with Arizonans who were looking for a leader who would prioritize their needs over special interests.
While his victory is not without controversy, it is a significant accomplishment for the GOP and a sign that conservative principles still have a place in American politics. Moving forward, the party must build on this success and continue to promote policies that resonate with the American people, ensuring a bright future for the party and the nation as a whole.
As it stands now, if predictive polling holds sway, Trump could well take Arizona again in 2024. Interactive Polls recently tweeted out that:
With a predictive lead of 42 percent, it could well be a second win for Donald Trump in Arizona in 2024.
