Trump Is Using Obama's Re-Election Playbook

June 10, 2019 at 7:47 am EDT By Taegan Goddard

Ben LaBolt: “The Trump campaign launched at the start of 2019 and hasn’t paused for a day. It is using the candidate’s schedule, a staffed-up campaign team, and a sophisticated digital-advertising effort to reach its target voters. The campaign has spent more than $5 million on Facebook ads, with a particular focus on older voters and women, firing up the base by attacking “fake news” and promoting its message on immigration. The advertising team has gone beyond social-media campaigns, sponsoring podcasts and creating a significant paid-media presence on YouTube. In fact, Trump is outspending Democrats six to one on video ads, the primary digital-engagement tool for voters today.”

“Simultaneously, Trump has begun to hold rallies in battleground states across the country, dipping into media markets where he can fire up his base, such as Panama City, Florida, and battleground markets, such as Green Bay, Wisconsin. Many of these visits lead to localized polling bumps that last for weeks.”

1. I know one thing he will NOT be doing that Obama did.

He will NOT be inviting me down to Washington for a hour to talk issues and election strategy

2. The only thing missing is a candidate of stature and ethics.

3. Trump started his re-election campaign the day after his inauguration

He's spent the last two years campaigning.

7. I don't think they're smart enough to pull that off.

Only possibility for the thugs to win is rigging the vote.
