MSNBC founder Tom Rogers admitted that Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden was struggling to articulate on the virtual campaign trail during an appearance on Morning Joe on Monday, stating that the former Vice President was “very unsatisfying” in “friendly, softball interviews.”
Joe Biden has been shaky in numerous digital media appearances since the onset of the national coronavirus quarantine, at times rambling in an incoherent fashion and struggling to communicate clearly with liberal media interviewers seeking to set up the former Vice President was easy shots at President Donald Trump.
Tom Rogers was asked about Biden’s acuity and campaign communication ability at 11:30 in this MSNBC segment.
“His performances have been very unsatisfying… And basically he’s been getting softball interviews with the exception of yours, Mika on the sexual harassment issues… I think the campaign really needs to figure how he will be in the position to discuss the defining issue of this election in a much more compelling way than he’s been able to do to date.”
Rogers is the latest of several left-leaning national figures to honestly question the abilities of the Democratic nominee to communicate at the level required to win a presidential election. The mainstream media executive later went on to bluntly question his communicative acuity when asked about his messaging on the coronavirus pandemic.
“When you listen to him on the pandemic… It’s a lot of disconnected phrases. It doesn’t really come together in a very convincing message. Every morning you guys put together and crystallize what that critique of Trump is. It’s not hard. And he can do it in an op-ed. But when it comes to social media and television, and he’s prime time, in the spotlight in the campaign, that articulation is going to have to be much clearer than it has been. And I really fear a crisis for the candidate if he cannot come up with a more convincing way to put out there exactly what the critique of Trump is.”
Should Biden prove woefully unable to muster the charisma necessary for a national presidential campaign, Rogers’ remarks could prove to be a prophetic warning to Democrats who wanted the safe, milquetoast choice of a nominee.
Trump Campaign Autopsy Shows Decline in Support From White Men, Coronavirus Epidemic Cost President Re-Election
The 2016 coalition didn’t hold this election.
A post-election autopsy reveals that Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential election by losing support from White men and Americans who disapproved of his handling and communication regarding the coronavirus epidemic.
Data suggesting as such was obtained by Trump campaign pollster Tony Fabrizio.
“Racially, POTUS suffered his greatest erosion with White voters, particularly White Men in both state groups,” Fabrizio revealed in his findings. Fabrizio referred to swing states that Trump had held from 2016 and those he had lost. The pollster queried voters in ten different states.
Trump also suffered a decline in support from the youngest Americans and those older than 65. There’s strong reason to believe that some assertions within the Republican Party that the coronavirus pandemic was “no biggie” played a crucial in eroding President Trump’s support among seniors, a vital constituency that has traditionally been strongly Republican. Fabrizio’s data indicates that the coronavirus pandemic was by far and away the most important campaign issue in the 2020 election, and that its importance among the electorate played decisively in Joe Biden’s favor.
President Trump’s support among White Men declined by as much as 12% in swing states that he lost in 2020. Joe Biden also improved his vote share among the demographic, which still voted strongly Republican, although in a diminished fashion.
It’s been said that Joe Biden won the election with a Democratic version of the so-called “Sailer Strategy,” discarding the Obama coalition in favor of making direct appeals to white seniors who traditionally vote Republican.
At the direction of Jared Kushner, the Trump 2020 campaign prioritized minority outreach and the so-called ‘Platinum Plan’ in hopes of expanding the President’s base of support. This appears to have been only partially successful, and may have come at the crucial cost of outreach energy and resources targeting middle-class white voters who won Trump the presidency.
Wow! Who saw that coming, besides EVERYONE?

President Trump expanded his support from Hispanic Americans, a vital constituency in states such as Texas, Nevada and Florida. However, the midwestern Rust Belt has smaller Hispanic communities, and Trump ultimately lost Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Hispanic outreach in Arizona, a state Trump lost by 10,000 votes, didn’t prove as successful as it was in other Sun Belt states, especially with the state’s White senior population inching to the left, relative to 2016. Buffed Hispanic support didn’t prove enough to ultimately swing Nevada, although the President secured a comfortably high margin of victory in Florida.
Trump’s buffed appeal with Hispanics wasn’t matched with Black voters, who largely voted in a fashion comparable to the 2016 election.
A future Republican candidate- even Trump himself, should he choose to run- would have to look more closely at the path to victory staked out in Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign if they seek a strategy with a proven record of success. It’s entirely plausible to believe that future nationalist, populist and conservative presidential candidates can receive even greater levels of Hispanic support while regaining the white blue-collar populist demographic that swept President Trump into the White House in 2016.
Unfortunately, Fabrizio’s autopsy is likely to be wholly ignored, with a sizable contingent of conservatives blaming Trump’s loss exclusively on a set of election steal theories from “brand” online lifestyle influencers. With a persistent fixation on empty dopamine hits, it may prove that Republicans will never a national election ever again, powerless as the Left and corporations transform the United States into a left-liberal oligarchy.
