What makes those ads effective is that they are coming from republicans.
I would agree, if they took a more dignified tone. Instead, they are usually the sort of lurid attack ad that people tune out during an election.

Boilerplate, distasteful attack ad. You don't win votes that way.
Trump's gaslighting has worked.

Too bad covid isn't affected. But as his followers have followed him, infections spread. How many did Trump kill with his Oklahoma covid rally?

4200 people, how many got infected? If most, then with a 1.5% death rate, perhaps 60.

Trump doesn't care.

Texas is getting bad. Has about three weeks of getting worse, even if locked down now. Which the governor probably will not do.

And the Lincoln ads will work with the people Left of Center who won't vote for him anyway. They should be targeting their ads at the wary "independent" voters who voted for Trump reluctantly, on a whim, or for some reason having something to do with Facebook and Russian troll farms.

Something is working. Trump is behind Biden in the latest poll. In Texas. Oh, and a friendly poll. Fox News.

Indeed. Trump is doing a bang-up job of campaigning for Biden.

...trump beat Clinton because he got in the last impression on voters in key swing states. All but one polling several points in favor of Clinton and she played right into the Russian's hand ignoring Michigan and Wisconsin to campaign in states she had nearly no chance of winning.
I can't refute that point but if true it saddens me that we (collectively) are such a bunch of rubes that this would be a factor. I can't recall a single instance in my life where my choice for President was influenced by whether or not a candidate campaigned in my state at all, much less in a certain time window. In fact I can't recall attending any Presidential campaign event except once for Walter Mondale in 1984, in which his performance convinced me NOT to vote for him. :lol:

Well, I have never been influenced by "anyone's" campaign. My choice has always been made MONTHS before the election and in this case, the choice was made 4 years ago come the first week of November.

I decided on Trump a couple of decades ago. I can't believe this 2 bit con man fooled so many people and became President of the United States.

To understand the people who vote for Trump, just ask yourself a simple question, then try to answer it from other peoples' perspectives. The question:

" Would I like to be this man?"

You might also ask, in the same manner:

"Can this man make my life more successful?"

An awful lot of the people who vote for Trump know that he is an asshole. Some even know that he is an idiot. It's not wise to overlook this.These things just don't, for them, much affect the answers to the above questions. Primates are programmed to follow leaders who will make them feel safe, and high in the hierarchy. There is programming having to deal with charisma, but none that makes us want to choose leaders who are good, nice, or brilliant (except as his or her being brilliant helps them to dominate).
