How does Clinton Campaign react/adjust to New New Trump Campaign ?

Clearly Hillary has been working largely below the media radar as much as possible, over the last few weeks and just letting Trump publicly implode. It has worked very well, but with scum like Bannon and a zealot nutjob like Conway, this will now be the dirtiest GE of our lifetimes.

If Conway does muzzle Trump, the amount of foot in mouth opportunities will diminish, but how long before he explodes again ?

While Bannon is a novice at Campaigns, he will not miss this opportunity to invent all sorts of vicious attacks to throw at Hillary. How should the campaign respond ? Surely they can't let too much of this stuff go ?

This could backfire even worse on Trump, as even more Republicans are recoiling at this announcement. The fear I have is that if there are any positive poll numbers for Trump, the media will jump back in for him.

1. It shouldn't be too difficult to bait Trump

Then he will go 8 script and go on a Twitter rant.

Someone just needs to say something personal about him.

3. There has to be more than that though ? Isn't interesting that we haven't heard much from

Elizabeth Warren & President Obama in the last month. Look to me like they are being stored up for mid Sept onwards.

They should also be targeting the downballot races to associate Trump/Breibart/Bannon to the Republican Party i.e. they are inextricably linked and full behind Trump when he briefly led.

6. A moment from Braveheart - HOLD _ HOLD _ HOLD

There is no sense trying to answer to every lie spinning in the political universe...Hill has many surrogates - just waiting for the most opportune moment to strike....

This health issue is a nonstarter - as the ALTRIGHT is finding out....there is no more reupublican party - so we might as well call it what it is...there are more of us than of them - besides the moderate republicans are coming over for Hill..

Christie Todd Whitman though got under my skin today when she said , "every time 100 repub write a letter or try to push back, trumps polls go up" - which is NOT the case.....

As long as Hillary continues to address concerns of the people in the states she is in - meeting with Police, all kinds of groups, listening, addressing issues of the many, she will be fine....

This call by the media for a presser..I say - they can go stuff it - the media is not our friend....and is not Hillary's friend..let them drool all over the worst candidate we in America have ever had in trump....it is all drama and drama ratings...

538 is my go to for polling.....to each his own I guess.....be well all

9. Totally agree. Hillary doesn't need to give free shots

In these pressers. She has so many great surrogates to represent her.

10. Stronger Together - tks for the feedback -

Sometimes I get on a band wagon of 1 - me, and don't know when to shut up - I'm totally beside myself - with the time msm is giving to this hateful bunch - and for FREE - hubby says he gives streetwalkers more respect than for tweety -

be well....

7. How do you feel about her "below the radar" approach?

 

Do you think it makes sense in light of what is going on with Team Trump/Breitbart or do you think she ought to get out there more than she has been?

8. Personally I think she should hold, but flood the airwaves to batter

Down the expected dirt onslaught with surrogates. Expose the Trumpers as fantasists. Ridicule them and keep mentioning Bannons white nationalist leanings etc. Face them head on.

They'll be trying to set a narrative before the debates, it's vital they aren't allowed get a foothold.
