Another Media Meme Destroyed: Trump’s Turnout Operation Was Groundbreaking

During the 2016 presidential campaign, the “everybody knows” conventional wisdom in the establishment press which never went away, even as some contrary evidence appeared, was that Donald Trump’s campaign, away from his rallies, was a haphazard operation which was doing very little to identify, target and persuade voters. At the New Republic in mid-June, Jeet Heer confidently summed up the media/Democrat party line, preaching to the choir that “Donald Trump Will Be Buried in an Electoral Avalanche.” A large part of his “proof”? Linking to a bogus New York Magazine analysis, he wrote: “Trump has no ground game or data analysis (and) … he doesn’t even see the need for them.” On Tuesday’s Kelly File, Fox News host Megyn Kelly had on Brad Parscale, the Trump campaign’s digital director, who proceeded to demonstrate how totally wrong the conventional wisdom was.
