Biden's strategy playing out perfectly -- partly thanks to Drumpf

Biden's 'not Trump' strategy playing out perfectly ó partly thanks to Trump

Facing any candidate or incumbent other than President Trump, running out the clock would be a highly risky strategy ó but Trump keeps sabotaging his own momentum and has shown no aptitude for self-discipline.

Even more important, the national mood, which benefited Trump in 2016, is a drag on his prospects in 2020. The simple rule of thumb for campaigns is that undecideds go for challengers. After all, the incumbent is a known commodity and re-elections are mostly referenda on the incumbent. Essentially, if a given voter hasnít decided for the incumbent as Election Day approaches, the voter will either vote against the incumbent or not vote. That is bad news for Trump, who lags in national and swing state polls.

Whatís Trumpís slogan now? He doesnít have one. He has no optimistic message and, as incumbent, he owns the chaos.

Biden is winning by letting Trump lose.
