They need to do everything at the same time. They need better and more aggressive messaging that plays to our most base emotions, and back it up with the hard core facts they have on their side. They need to think of every independent or swing voter and how they would describe their decision to vote Democrat to a fellow swing voter. It's a one sentence pitch. If it's 98% fear of Trump in most cases, so be it.

 

Actually, Democrats and liberals have an excellent social media game, as any tour of X or Facebook or Tik Tok will tell you. Not sure where you see Republicans with the advantage there, although the Tik Tok algorithm gets real toxic quick with bro culture content. These are mostly volunteer and ancillary culture warriors on both sides -- neither the DNC or RNC is running that game well. 

 

Also, double and triple down on state and local elections. Even the small ones. If Biden's faltering age decides the Presidential election, you'll need a slate of new and livelier candidates across the board to keep the party alive while the GOP follows Donald Trump off the cliff. 

This might be true for your feed, but the most popular videos/news stories with the most shares on Facebook are conservative, and it's not even close.

 

I agree on local elections, but Democrats context and raise a lot more money than Republicans do for most of those races. They face systemic disadvantages that make it hard to overcome despite having more money in most of them.

Facebook?  

 

That is for old people, of course it is going to skew the way it does.

 

Have you met or talked to anyone under 40 in the last 10 years?  No one uses facebook anymore.  

 

In order of popularity

 

TikTok

Insta

FB is still around because of old people and because some people still use it to sign in for s#!t.

I mean, both of them will be loaded up with "drugs" to get them going and keep them going.  This is one of the biggest nights of their life, you would be foolish to not do all you could to be at your best.

Chris has obviously never seen Trump speak when his teleprompter goes out.  I would not call "No prewritten notes" advantage Trump.

Why no live audience?  I don't really get that.

 

The mic being shut off is PERFECT

Yeah, but old people are the most likely to vote. 

 

Furthermore, I'd contend that young people are similarly being manipulated via Tik Tok. The ongoing example of their support of Palestine is an example of social media motivating going people away from Biden, forcing him to take unpopular stances to win them over (with moving goal posts) in lieu of supporting Israel, which is the overwhelming popular position of the American public.

No live audience because Trump supporters would behave like they’re at an SEC football game or a Nascar race….well worse than that even, but you get the idea. Example- MTG at a Presidential address to congress.

This is the place I thought you could make a dent in MAGA: Trump's military avoidance background, his disrespect and misunderstanding of military service, his arrogance about s#!t he knows nothing about, and having incredibly respected military generals and combat veterans calling him a f#&%ing idiot.

 

But it's still not taking. 

The MAGA cult is a true personality cult - not a policy, not a doctrine, not even a patriotic cult.  The members of the cult were formally identified as:

Pro-military

Pro-police

Pro-constitution

Pro-law & order

Pro-family values

Pro-democracy /Anti-authoritarian 

 

Trump has turned all of the above on its head. Trump talks negatively of the military; the cult follows suit.  The same is true of all of the other issues.  Thus, the MAGA cult members have sold their soul to a personality and in turn have reversed their position on many of these issues. 

They want Trump to be their strongman, their messiah, to do what they feel they cannot do - face this evil world on their own:madash.  

Look at the Rubio, Scott, Graham, Cruz, Haley, and many others - they all turned away from their supposedly long held cherished values to be puppets in the show.

Pro-Pally bros are the worst.

This is so true. 
 

All those things you listed, are things that MAGAts think they are fighting for…..meanwhile, their cult leader is the worst politician for those in history. 
 

But, they can’t see that.
