President Trump won in 2016 in large part by bringing former Democratic members and new voters into the fold of the Republican Party, which was rebranded under his leadership as a pro-worker, populist party.
The mass exodus of voters from the Democratic Party that the President’s campaign catalyzed spawned a mass movement now known as the ‘#WalkAway’ movement, with people of all races and socioeconomic backgrounds voicing their frustration with the new Democratic Party.
New data from a Trump team official indicates that even as President Trump has not yet officially announced his candidacy for the 2024 Presidential election, he is still doing crucial work to persuade tens of hundreds of thousands of voters through the rallies he has been holding for Congressional candidates in the 2022 midterm elections.
The report shows that a majority of people who have attended Trump rallies in key swing states such as Michigan, Ohio, Nevada, Arizona, and North Carolina are new attendees.

A Trump team official told Fox News that more than half of the people who registered to attend Trump’s five most recent rallies in September and October were “first-time attendees.”
“President Trump has built a massive database of those people who have registered to attend a rally since 2015,” the official said. “However, when looking at the five most recent rallies, more than half of those registering are first-time attendees—they are people who have never attended a Trump rally before.”
According to Team Trump data, 54% of attendees of Trump’s rallies in Michigan and North Carolina earlier this month had never been to a rally before. 61% of attendees at his Ohio rally were new attendees, 56% of attendees in Nevada were new; and 55% of attendees at his Arizona rally had never been to a rally before.
“This means the president’s rallies are not only energizing his base, but also introducing new voters to his endorsed candidates in the critical days before the midterm elections,” the official said. “This is the kind of energy that fuels massive victories.”
