When these two voters expressed a certain frustration and resolve for voting to end the nightmare, the writing was on the wall, a landslide win.
Fearlessly building the landslide
I could show you graphs and polls that show everyone how Donald Trump is losing suburban white women, independents, Latinos, and even falling with white men. But I won’t.
Right now we need to campaign from the heart and from people’s personal realities. First and foremost the non-voters in our base IMHO need to be assured that in fact, they matter and that their votes, their effort to vote will matter. People don’t vote because they do not see the correlation between their reality and their vote. We should make that obvious in a manner that is not accusatory or condescending but encouraging and empathetic.
Many say we are not in the game of changing minds and that our efforts are better served to get our base to vote. While that may be partially true if an opportunity opens itself up which you deem could lead to a positive outcome, take it. It could be an opportunity at the grocery store, at the coffee shop, at church, or anywhere. In other words, engage wherever you are, positively. I have had great outcomes in my red bubble.
We have never been in this position before. It requires adjusting to meet the challenge. The Depression will not be televised. We need to let all know that the current administration is leading the way. Connect the dots. That is what many of us do with our activism out here.
My new book “It’s Worth It: How to Talk To Your Right-Wing Relatives, Friends, and Neighbors” is live. I am excited because I think especially in these times it provides some important guidance in a country where we seem to be rudderless, at each other throats, and lacking a sense of worth. In these distressing times, it is worth engaging.
