I just dont know if its a good strategy for Fox. How do you convince the racists not to be racist in a 30 second ad? I think for Fox, a different strategy is called for. Unless its just appealing to the never trump or swing voters, who I honestly dont think are watching Fox much.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/03/12/fox-news-audience-may-not-be-what-you-think-even-if-programming-usually-is/

Here's a quote that even surprised me:

"Speaking of The Post, we also polled on media preferences late last year. We asked people to identify their most trusted sources of political news, including news outlets, companies and people. Among those who identified any of the cable news networks as their first or second most-trusted sources, about half of those picking Fox News were Republican. About a fifth were Democrats."

50. Sorry but I feel he wasted an opportunity

 

Instead of talking about stuff that racists don't care about, he should have talked about all the promises the creature has failed to deliver to his base.

I hate to say it, but he is not going to change any hearts from Faux news viewers about that topic of racism, I think it is safe to bet that most Faux viewers are racists and they love what the administration is doing.

Why instead not talk about the coal industry disappearance, one he promised to help, about the farmers going bankrupt, create panic on those trumpers about their ACA going away that they will be left without insurance, ask them "Are you better off today than you were five years ago?", "Do you understand that the President is using you, and not delivering on his promises to make your life better?", and so much more he could have said.

I can see the MAGA people saying things to Castro on the TV, giving him the finger, etc.

Wasted opportunity. My apologies, but for Faux I don't see anything powerful about the ad, on MSNBC? Yes, that would have been very powerful.
