I don’t see how this works. Doing politics without campaigning is about like playing ice hockey without skates.
Anyway, it’s a brand new experiment, and I dont’ think it’s going to work
The Washington Examiner has tallied the numbers:
From Sept. 1 through Oct. 26, Trump led Biden in number of days traveling (35 to 27), number of visits to cities or metropolitan areas (49 to 34), and number of battleground states visited (13 to 9) — even though Trump was not on the campaign trail for a week and a half due to his coronavirus diagnosis in early October.
Part of the reason for the Democratic presidential nominee and former vice president is not traveling to campaign as much as Trump is to demonstrate concern for the coronavirus pandemic and model appropriate COVID behavior.
I think failure to campaign shows weakness and fear, and it loses a lot of free advertising. What’s more, people don’t want to be told anymore that they are in danger and need to shut down the economy, at least not to the extent they were once willing to hear it. Biden’s message is the opposite.
