Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 21, 2019

As the 2020 election inches closer, Republicans continue to enjoy the digital edge they seized in 2016.

Why it matters: Online ad spending offers President Trump an efficient way to target sympathetic voters with fundraising pitches and barrage them with inflammatory messages on issues ranging from immigration to impeachment.

- It's especially cost-effective on Facebook, because there, the more an ad proves "engaging" -- i.e., hot, attention-grabbing, clicky -- the cheaper it is.

- It's a system made for Trump's style.

(btw, that double quote at the end of the summary was a test. When I submitted the summary, it was an em-dash. It metamorphosed upon submission. I think the en-dash is treated similarly.)

The only digital thing Trump knows about is grabbing poon.

"Trump needs gullible stupid people to vote for him"

Until you're ready to start advocating an IQ test for voting eligibility, the votes of stupid people are just as valuable as anybody else's. And every candidate wants them.
