The president’s challenge in November is not only to keep those who backed him last time, but also to win new voters to compensate for the increased determination of Democrats in larger Wisconsin cities to vote this time and move away from it in some conservative suburbs.
Trump has stopped working in the rural county of Forest, in the upper reaches of the province of Wisconsin, which has recently consistently supported the winners of the presidential election of any of the parties.
His support remains weak in the county among some of those who voted for him before … and who have long criticized his fickle leadership, confrontational tweets and outright lies, but who remain loyal because they think the economy is strong. The only plus for Trump is that there is little evidence of widespread enthusiasm for Biden.
Terry Burle, president of the Republican district until last month, admits that Trump is fighting.
But it is difficult to push the positive in the midst of a pandemic, mass unemployment and economy.
