5. I was just saying that to my wife
Every speech is the same mill worker I met this woman blah blah. Its a good message but it doesn't hold people. It is about negatives all the time. He needs more positive. No one wants to hear about all the bad shit in america we know its out there. We want to hear how it can get better.

I think it is part of why he is not doing better. His message is good his delivery sucks.
