We are now three weeks away from “the most important election of our lifetimes”.
Of course, that phrase is just another bit of mainstream media gobbledygook, and has about as much impact as the line “in a world…” at the beginning of a movie trailer. You see, the “most important” election of our lifetimes is always the next one. We can’t re-vote in past elections, and we have no idea who we’re even going to be voting for in future contests. So, by default, this election is the only election that matters right now.
But I digress.
With only 21 days left until the nation decides who the next President will be, both candidates are making their final stands. They are examining and re-examining internal polling and then targeting those demographics that they are either letting slip away, or who they believe they can sway to their side.
For President Trump, it’s suburban women who are the focus of this latest campaign push, and, in true Trump fashion, the Commander in Chief isn’t beating around the bush.
With Election Day just three weeks away, President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden concentrated Tuesday on battleground states both see as critical to clinching an Electoral College victory, tailoring their travel to best motivate voters who could cast potentially decisive ballots.
Biden went to Florida to court seniors, looking to deliver a knockout blow in a state Trump needs to win while trying to woo a group whose support for the president has slipped. And Trump visited Pennsylvania, arguably the most important state on the electoral map, unleashing fierce attacks on Biden’s fitness for office in his opponent’s backyard.
“He’s shot, folks. I hate to tell you, he’s shot,” Trump told a big rally crowd in Johnstown, saying there was extra pressure on him to win because Biden was the worst presidential candidate of all time. “Can you imagine if you lose to a guy like this? It’s unbelievable.”
“So I ask you to do me a favor. Suburban women: Will you please like me? Please. Please. I saved your damn neighborhood, OK?” Trump said. “The other thing: I don’t have that much time to be that nice. You know, I can do it, but I gotta go quickly.”
