Trump only has TEN full time staffers in Iowa.... There are 1,682 precincts. (OFFICIAL THREAD FOR CURRENT TRUMP VOLUNTEERS)
Bush is in the triple digits, flying in rich college kids who are making signs and knocking on doors -

Even Dr. Carson and iCarly have so many more supporters -

It worries me that, Trump said he'll self spend - Yet, all these enthusiastic people who want to vote for Trump - don't understand Iowa's "caucus" version and with only TWO Trump offices in Iowa - it's hard for people to volunteer for Trump...

If you want to Volunteer for Bush, every city 30,000+ has an HQ in Iowa, NH, SC, Nevada...

Trump.... is scaring me a little. New Hampshire is a winner take all vote not a caucus, yet once again in NH, a WINNER TAKE ALL - He has ONE OFFICE and FOUR full time staffers compared to Jebs! 1,000's...

Why doesn't he have more boots on the ground? What is he waiting for? Yes, he's only spent $2 million and "look at those numbers" but those numbers aren't votes nor delegates -

When a SuperPAC comes in from every side every direction attacking Trump, he can't just tweet his way or call into FOX and fix the problem...

Where is the literature? Why aren't there more Trump stickers and signs and hats?

Argh! My conspiracy mind is going in circles.

Ten full time staffers in a State where there's usually hundreds if not thousands...

Goodbye, halcyon days...

 There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory mentioned, which states that this has already happened.

They need these people at every precinct to make sure they stay and caucus for Trump.

If not, Bush and his millions will have a volunteer/staffer at every single 1,682 of them. They've got the ground game.

I like to think of it as war... OK, Trump has air supremrecy, yet no boots on the ground... that can only go SO FAR...

"CAUCUS" goes literally need "leaders" at every precint to "shepherd them" into staying and becoming delegates... New Hampshire is a winner take all vote not a caucus, yet once again in NH, a WINNER TAKE ALL - He has ONE OFFICE and FOUR full time staffers.

I agree. Real life voters are what matters, not polls and the most TV appearances. Likes on FB and daily tweets mean nothing in the end. Never underestimate the power of real human interaction.

Supporters need to be in place where the action is needed.

and Trump is scaring me by not having lots of paid staffers or Volunteers or places for Volunteers to even GO TO to start VOLUNTEERING!

It doesn't make sense yet - I really hope he's "committed" yet he needs a ground game now, and fast.

I don't think Trump is even trying. He's smart. He knows he can't win. He's just playing to a crowd. I'm sure he'll write a book when he's done, and that'll be that. Trump supporters are looking for a savior in all the wrong places.

He's registering all attendees of his rallies in a database in order to get them out to vote in February. And that's a ton of voters, if you haven't noticed.

I think Trump has it covered; spending money on quality vs quantity. He has already proven you don't have to spend a lot of money to be up in the polls. Think of it this way: Trump will spend the country's money as carefully as he spends his own. Then look at how the other candidates are spending like drunken sailors; that's how they will handle the American economy.

Here's an interesting quote... His lead Iowa man was from Perry's camp this year and 2012 Santorum's and getting Rep. King (Iowa) elected...

“We’re getting a lot of buzz,” Chuck Laudner, Mr. Trump’s Iowa director, said recently. “Transforming that into caucus support is going to be the heavy lift.”

Laudner is known around Politico as a guy for "shoe string" campaigns (those with not a lot of money)

That scares me - and I sent the tweet, working on the email. Blunt, simple: "Worried about ground game/staffers/HQ's - Next move?"

Well Santorum won in Iowa but would not trust anyone from Perry's camp this year. I don't think trump can trust any of these regular republican operatives, they are for the RINO class, not the ravel rousing let's break a few eggs trump class.

This does get me concerned now.

Tech. Ron Paul won :) But that was a smoke and mirrors, they wanted Romney to win, shut down RP, so they "remained unofficial results" for WEEKS afterwards with Santorum saying he won, he won - in the end, Ron Paul actually won Iowa...

He was the "Chuck Truck" where he drives to the 99 counties in Iowa in 2012.... now he has a jet.

Iowa 2012 GOP Caucus:


Rick Santorum
29,839 24.6% - ZERO DELEGATES.

Mitt Romney
29,805 24.5% - FIVE DELEGATES.

Ron Paul
26,036 21.4% - 22 DELEGATES.

So yes "he won" but got NO DELEGATES... Ron Paul had that massive ground game in Iowa and Caucus states...

So yes, he can get 33% of the vote - and come out with zero delegates -

and we're not even talking about the "Superdelegates" yet that are in no way shape or form supporting Trump.

As a WINNER he better get serious about the dirty mechanics of primaries and caucuses.

Even if he's not totally serious about going all the way, he should be going balls out, if nothing else, just to fuck with the RNC which clearly hates him.

Thank you, I needed that word.

The DIRTY MECHANICS of Caucus States and the lack of troops in WINNER TAKE ALL - as I pointed out Romney "won" Iowa yet got NO DELEGATES - New Hampshire is winner take all - so if Trump gets 2nd - he gets zip. If Trump wins Iowa, yet doesn't have skilled people to lead them through the dirty mechanics of the Caucus States... then he could be like Romney - win, hell he might win it HUGE - and Bush could come in third, yet with millions to spend and thousands of interns at every precint.. guide them into becoming a delegate.

So Trump could win Iowa, HUGE - Come out with no delegates, come in 2nd in NH - and on the way to South Carolina still be surging in the polls - yet not a single "vote" in his name to be casted at the Convention.

This is Trump's Iowa Chief Staffer explaining how they plan to get through the mud of caucus states:

Running what he calls a “parallel campaign.” While the 15 or so other Republican candidates fight over the 120,000 regular GOP caucusgoers who turn out every four years to spend hours in school gymnasiums or church basements for the grueling voting process, Laudner is seeking out “people who wouldn’t be caught dead at a Republican event.”

“I want to do something different,” he added, “which means everything has to be different.”

That's because Trump was never serious about this gig. He is a Clinton PLANT.

Don't you get it? None of the Republicans are meant to win. They are meant to fall. They are jobbers.

Trump is a Ross Perot meant to split the Republican party and cause chaos. Do you really think he doesnt know? Of course he knows. Of course he knows that he needs boots on the ground.

After all, isn't Trump about "winning"?

This just confirms our fears. Trump is a double agent. He is a suicide bomber.
