IMO doing status quo media interviews isn't quite making the contrast between Biden and Trump as forcefully as we might hope or need. I think he needs to be engaging with the scientists and experts on CV and a number of other important topics in a public way to show people what a president is supposed to look like.
He is doing this almost every day Hagbard. He doesn't yet get the coverage that Trump does. He's been doing hours long events daily, some public, others private, but he's been quite prolific.
His advisors understand the dynamics, but the reality is that Biden's campaign is far down the list of pressing news priorities right now. And the only reason Trump can elevated his campaign is because he violates government regulations by turning what are supposed to be taxpayer-funded non-political events into tacit Trump/Pence 2020 rallies.
I watched Joe for an hour last night (The Last Word) and he never wavered one bit. But again, I'll readily admit, what I'm looking for is not a politician right now, it's a competent leader to extract us from this morass. And I also think those trying to place the usual presidential campaign template upon the 2020 race are missing the forest for the trees. The way Biden is running his campaign will likely be the way most, if not all campaigns are run because there aren't going to be safe mass gatherings of people until a vaccine is available.
With tens of millions unemployed, my belief is that people aren't looking for a show, they want solutions, not slogans. Trump's carnival barker act is ineffective as thousands keep dying everyday due to his incompetence. That will be the issue the vast majority will vote on, and since so many will not have jobs, I feel more strongly than ever that we will see record turn out in November.
And you know who record turnout is going to help.
