(RepublicanInformer.com)- President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign announced over the weekend that they have built the biggest grassroots campaign in presidential election history, with some 2.2 million volunteers working to win in November. The grassroots Republican campaign stands in stark contrast to the Democrat campaign which has focused almost entirely on online and TV ads.
The Trump campaign Political Director Chris Carr posted the breaking news on Saturday, saying the Trump grassroots movement easily surpassed the 2012 Barack Obama campaign.
“The @realDonaldTrump campaign is officially the largest grassroots movement in presidential history surpassing the @BarackObama campaign,” he confirmed.
🚨 BREAKING 🚨

“Trump Victory has 2,275,878 volunteers and counting thanks to the BOLDNESS of this President!” he added.
Back in 2012, when President Barack Obama was working to be re-elected during a campaign against Republican Senator Mitt Romney, he claimed to have 2.2 million volunteers and almost 1.8 million voters registered.
It’s a good sign that President Donald Trump is on the track to re-election, given Obama’s substantial success against Romney.
It comes as President Donald Trump surges in the polls, with even Democrat-leaning polls showing the president on an even footing with Joe Biden in swing states. Combined with the well-documented “Shy Trump” effect, whereby people vote for Donald Trump and the Republicans without admitting doing so to the pollsters, and President Trump is in a solid position to win key swing states.
Lara Trump, daughter-in-law of the president and a senior adviser to the Trump campaign, said recently that President Trump is using a motivated grassroots campaign to win swing states like Michigan.
“We are feeling very good in Michigan, but we want to work for every single vote,” she said. “We take nothing for granted.
Unlike the Democrats who have kept their candidate hidden in a basement for months. A new report showed how Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden spent one-third of September off the campaign trail entirely.
