BTRTN: Is Trump's "Law and Order" Message Working? How Should Biden Respond?

Born To Run The Numbers provides its view on Donald Trump's "Law and Order" messaging, with perspective on how Joe Biden and the Democrats should respond:


Excerpts: "Hereís the bad news: at the most basic level, Trumpís 'law and order' messaging has already been working. Until the shattering headlines about Bob Woodwardís new book, Trumpís 'law and order' campaign had already substantially shifted the focus of the national dialog away from Trumpís appalling handling of the coronavirus and the resultant moribund state of the economy...Itís that simple: if Trump can shift the essential dialog about this election to any other topic than a straight referendum on his own performance as President, thatís a big win for him. And if he can frame the 'law and order' issue the way he wants to -- as an issue of Democratic/Progressive weakness in the face of violent minorities, rather than a question of civil rights and justice in law enforcement, he might actually have a chance to win. The Democrats cannot allow this to happen...
"...Donald Trumpís messaging strategy of demonizing the BLM movement could well have the unintended consequence of dramatically increasing Black voter turn-out, swelling the number of voters in support of Joe Biden. The 'best message' Trump can come up with to fire up his base may well be the worst message to use when measured by its impact on voter turn-out in both parties.
"That is what Biden must do: every time Trump tries to talk about 'law and order,' the Democrats should point out that Trump is only trying to change the topic from the humiliation of his failures in handling the coronavirus... the answer to the question of the day is an emphatic yes: Donald Trumpís 'Law and Order' campaign has the potential to do damage to Joe Biden. But only if Biden and the Democrats let it..."
