WASHINGTON — President Trump’s campaign and the Republican National Committee passed an enormous milestone this week — making contact with their 100 millionth voter through door knocking and phone banking.
The RNC says it has knocked on the doors of 12 million potential voters in battleground states since mid-June — that’s around 1 million a week — while the Biden campaign has knocked on zero.
The wildly different door-to-door strategies could make all the difference in races up and down the ballot in states like New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Michigan, which were won by razor-thin margins in 2016.
RNC chief of staff Richard Walters told The Post that the Biden campaign was assuming people in must-win states would vote for them and revealed the unlikely inspiration for the RNC’s enormous field operation: Barack Obama.
The GOP operative said it was “mind blowing” that Biden wasn’t using the same strategy that got him into the vice president’s mansion.
