Response to RBInMaine (Original post)

16. Agreed. They need to stick to both aspects of what she said.

There are genuine "deplorables" and there are frightened, struggling people who are looking for a savior, misguided as it might be. Separating the two out and continuing to hammer that point home is key. She'll never get any support from the former but some people will want to identify (and do) with the latter and might feel somewhat seen.

My only worry would be the loss of people who are frightened by her "non-PC" tone. Of course the surrogates could use that too. "Oh NOW you're interested in a candidate being PC?"
