WHAT BOTH OF THEM HAVE TO DO
Amazing how both candidates have been able to get so far through this campaign and not have a meaningful discussion about what they would actually do once in office. I’m beginning to think Clinton and Trump either have no real policies, or have policies that would make us shrink in horror after we look under the hood.
Don’t make this personal.
Not productive. Won’t win many more votes that way. However, it seems Trump has made it quite clear that he’s turning up the personal attacks to 11.
WHAT CLINTON NEEDS TO DO TONIGHT
Brand Trump as the non-inclusive candidate
Jump into specific policies and viewpoints which show how working class white families cannot trust Trump to make them prosper. Voters of color, especially Black folks, are already wired to vote for Clinton. She needs to work on the white ones.
Pry the remaining women supporters from Trump’s grip
The “Grab them by the puss” tape will help without her even mentioning it.
Let Trump talk.
He’s bound to trip over his tongue at some point, so let him do it.
WHAT TRUMP NEEDS TO DO TONIGHT
Bust Clinton with her TPP lie — but be quick about it.
Clinton insisted that she’s against TPP. Use this email from Wikileaks and call herb B.S. People don’t seem to trust her so additional evidence to support the “Crooked Hillary” narrative can only harm her some more. Explaining TPP can be complicated and Trump will only have a few seconds to make his point.
Use same TPP play, but use the Wall Street bank version.
Stick with what’s worked before.
“Hillary’s been in Washington for 25 years, and hasn’t been able to fix it.” Trump had plenty of success with that line; he should use it tonight. Bring up Clinton’s time at the state department when Libya failed as a country and Syria descended into chaos.
