The 2020 election was the most closely contested election of Americans’ lifetimes.
No one could believe how it ended.
And Donald Trump scored one victory that changed everything for Joe Biden.
No matter what happens in the Presidential Election – Donald Trump refuses to allow Joe Biden to steal the Presidency – Donald Trump was the overall winner of the battle over if Donald Trump’s movement would remain a force in American politics.
The answer was a resounding yes.
Fake news reporters spent four years claiming Donald Trump alienated college-educated voters, women, minorities and suburban voters based on a smear campaign falsely accusing President Trump of being a racist.
But the results of the election showed President Trump grew the base of the Republican Party by winning the highest share of nonwhite voters by any Republican since 1960.
President Trump increased his vote share from 2016 with blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, Asians, and homosexuals.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy credited Donald Trump’s performance for boosting House Republicans to defy all the expert predictions that the party would lose 15 seats in the House to a surprise win of up to 13 seats held by Democrats and slicing Nancy Pelosi’s majority to a razor thin single digit seat margin.
“We’re going to have more women Republicans in Congress in the history of the Congress. We’re going to double the size this next election. Every pundit said we would lose somewhere between 15 to 20 seats. The opposite happened. We’re already ahead in — we’ve won seven seats by the AP, and we’re ahead in 11 more. This is more diverse. … America is going to be more reflective in Congress and the Republican Party than we’ve ever had at any given time. It’s the quality of the candidate. I give President Trump a great deal amount of credit, that he expanded this party. He expanded Hispanics, African Americans, who are welcomed into this party,” McCarthy explained.
In 2018 Democrats flipped 41 seats to win a majority in the House of Representatives.
Of those 41 seats, 38 were in the suburbs which led to prognosticators claiming a “suburban revolt” would bury the Republican Party as more educated voters were repelled by Trump’s conduct.
But in 2020 Joe Biden narrowly won the suburbs 50 to 48 while Donald Trump split college-educated white voters 49 to 49 when pre-election polls showed Joe Biden carrying that demographic by up to 30 points.
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham credited President Trump’s stronger than expected performance in the suburbs for why Republicans upended the expert predictions and held the Senate.
“I’m here tonight to stand with President Trump. He stood with me. He’s the reason we’re going to have a Senate majority. My race was overwhelming. He helped Senate Republicans. We’re going to pick up House seats. Because of the campaign that President Trump won,” Graham told Sean Hannity.
Donald Trump proved on election night when he won nearly 70 million votes that the polls were wrong and grew the GOP with a diverse coalition that his brand of “Make America Great Again” politics based on a populist version of conservatism was the future of the Republican Party and that there was no going back to the Bush/McCain/Romney brand of establishment moderation.
