COVID-19 has made the 2020 campaign virtual. That’s a disaster for Biden

{ object.primary_image.title }}

According to digital political strategist Eric Wilson, Biden simply doesn’t have the time—or the social media savvy—to catch up to Trump’s online campaign. There’s a growing sense of dread among Democrats as Joe Biden fumbles his way through the transition to an entirely virtual presidential campaign. Veterans of Barack Obama’s successful runs, David Axelrod and David Plouffe, recently pleaded with Biden to “embrace a new suite of virtual, data-driven tools, and creative tactics.” Read Full Story

It only took a few hours before the Biden campaign turned a riff from a President Trump rally into a brilliant slogan.

Assemble the shadow cabinet: How Joe Biden can beat Trump at his own reality TV game

With a little bit of creativity, Biden can pioneer an entirely new kind of remote campaign—a savvy twist on microtargeting for the social media era. Maybe none of this matters. Maybe the presidential election will be solely determined by how Donald Trump handles the coronavirus, and the end result will be the same whether Joe Biden runs an effective, vigorous campaign or goes on vacation for the next six months. But if you’re a Democrat, hiding out in your basement doesn’t feel like a winning strategy. Biden’s home videos and avuncular podcast, “Here’s the Deal,” aren’t exactly catching fire. Meanwhile Trump is dominating the airwaves, using daily coronavirus briefings to broadcast political rallies from the White House lawn. Team Biden needs to amp up the X factor if it wants to recapture the public’s waning attention. Read Full Story

New Biden campaign ad fights Trump BS fire with Trump BS fire

{ object.primary_image.title }}

In response to President Trump using Dr. Fauci’s words out of context, the Biden campaign did some selective quoting of Trump himself. One of the most common new hobbies over the past four years has been for critics of President Trump to retweet his old tweets that directly contradict something he’s said or done on any given day. There’s always a tweet, right? Last month, the Biden campaign used a 10-second clip of President Trump during a rally speech saying, “If I lose to him, I don’t know what I’m going to do. I will never speak to you again . . . . You’ll never see me again.” Read Full Story
