Let's say Joe Biden's campaign chair calls you to ask you how you'd get the campaign back on track.

What would you say?

2. stop giving Republicans a pass

 

stop getting into fights with people at events. Acknowledge your past flaws and explain how you've changed.
The one thing I do think he's been OK at is challenging Trump... but Trump and Republicans are inseparable now. He doesn't seem to get that.

Which i generally don't recommend with someone you don"t know... particularly if you're trying to get their vote...make sure you have a common frame of reference.

7. Point out how racist the Stop and Frisk policy was under Bloomberg.

 

Seriously.

Joe needs to HAMMER Bloomberg on that at the next debate or he is toast.

Good luck to Joe at that debate. I would vote for him in a heartbeat over Bloomberg.

14. No, every candidate should stay in and campaign hard thru Super Tuesday.

 

But, please don't ignore my point.

Biden needs to really challenge Bloomberg on Stop and Frisk.

Joe is bleeding black support to Bloomberg, and Bloomberg does not deserve that support compared to Biden.

I really think that If Joe doe not call Bloomberg out on that, it will be over for Joe.

Biden and other Democrats need to keep harping on Stop and Frisk. I still have not heard a satisfactory explanation from Bloomberg.

They did a number on you from the beginning,,but you have been hanging in there.. staying strong

Bloomberg is down in the mud with Trump... Let those two slug it out

Nice nice come back today for Mayor Pete.. He stood up for you and you stood up for him.. very proud of both of you

People are up to their ears with yelling and screaming.. remind them what a better way was..

Stay strong, on point, be yourself,

Yes, yes, and yes, Bloomberg knows what he is doing, there is no downside to him or anyone who wants to defeat Trump. He beats up on Trump, and if the rest of the Democrats falter, Bloomberg is the nominee. If not, he's been beating up on Trump, something few have proven very good at. NO downside to this strategy. Zero.

Bloomberg helps to keep Trump distracted and he is really good at it. Let him keep pushing those buttons, but he won't get a free pass on Stop and Frisk.

32. That's part of the problem - those last-century selling points!

 

It's a new world but not the brighter one as foretold so long ago - In fact, an admissions officer used it on us as their recruiting theme for incurring advanced debt, and then Joe helped the bankers not the students caught by stagnant wages, illness, injury; yet it stands in Federal law; now, you can just as easily catch and identify a lot of pathological "shade" (darkness) deservedly earned by old-fashioned turns of an advertising phrase.

I'd be outraged at dissolving the rule of law, I'd mention dictatorship often, I'd be outraged at using Ukraine to manufacture dirt on me and my family, go full Democrat and talk about civil rights, and I'd make a lot of noise because we're in a fight and we're going to have to offend the opposition a lot if we're going to win.

15. CNcel everything he has planned...

 

Organize a minimum of three meetings a day with voters. No stump speeches (DEFINITELY not with a teleprompter, like I saw on Saturday). Just engage one on one with the people in the room; that’s where he’s at his best.

I truly believe Bidens base is solid.

He was never expected to win either of those two. He should have done better but roll up our big girl pants and get on with it.
Secure your base and give ‘em hell.

21. Not sure.

 

I would say do more campaign events, but a lot of his supporters aren't really the types to go to those events. Hmm. I would say really invest in a good ground game to get his supporters and would-be supporters to turn out and vote for him, but it may be a little bit too late for that. His best bet right now is to probably get all his surrogates and supporters to really flood Nevada and South Carolina and do as many events as they can for him (even if he can't be at them all) to drum up support and try to regain his frontrunner position by Super Tuesday.

29. Be less defensive with people . That Dog Face Pony was a Yang Ganger now Yang dropped out

 

The steyer guy wanted to approach you and said he would vote for you in the GE you grabbed him
Neither one was the Bernie bro ambush you imagined plus your possible supporters see this reaction and the vote for someone else is not a good slogan

Act like you have all the right stuff be more confident take the criticsism as a I see that point too or something less rough around the edges
Warren imo has the best approach with these kinds of situations
Even sanders gruff talk to the hand and not getting into it with someone is better than attacking back
Save that tough guy stuff for your future times with trump!
