Did you even read the memo and what's it us about?? Or did you just see a hit piece against donals and post it without checking the facts??

This memo was talking about going after unlikely voters and increasing the voter pool. As for thr article it takes what was said out of context here is what was said in the memo. What they are trying to do is get people who don't vote to take thr time to do so. Most campaigns focus only on likely voters.

Moving the P coefficient higher is more akin to evangelization than persuasion. These are people who may not know where to vote, whether or not they are eligible to participate, and what the hours are. They may have to work on the actual election day and are unaware of early voting opportunities on Saturdays. Many of them may have simply never been asked for their vote.
In the media and in certain social circles, our low-P supporters have been called “stupid,” “racists,” and “bigots.” The “elites” look down on them, and there is evidence they deny their support for our candidate because they fear being ostracized.

I think that is very true and that voter disenfranchisement is a problem in a democracy. It is about time that someone recognises this. Far all the flaws Trump's campaign has, this is something they have done right.




I agree disenfranchisement is a problem in a democracy...BUT...there are massive numbers of politically aware folks that feel disenfranchised and massive numbers of low-income folks that feel disenfranchised...etc. etc.

The strategy his campaign employed was to activate only those disenfranchised that were being perceived as racist or bigoted and offer them a "safe space" to draw them into political participation and vote for Trump.

If it was a general voter mobilization effort it would be different.

Yet another "you can't make this stuff up" story. Bravo!

But really, bigots and racists should not have to hear that they are bigots and racists. It hurts their little feelers.



Bigots and racists are simply those left wingers disagree with. I know this because the same groups openly support racist hate groups while telling themselves they're not racist.

Read it thoroughly..Why?



This memo was talking about going after unlikely voters and increasing the voter pool.


Correct...specifically the "unlikely voters" who " have been called “stupid,” “racists,” and “bigots.”

Forgive me if I don't applaud the voter-activation effort narrowed to that target..

“racists,” and “bigots.” The “elites” look down on them, and there is evidence they deny their
support for our candidate because they fear being ostracized.





That’s why the engagement scripts for low-P must all open with a warm and friendly disclosure:
“I’m a volunteer for Mr. Trump’s campaign for President.” This lets them know they’re in a “safe space.” Then we follow with an encouraging invitation: “We’d like you join us, to help us Make America Great Again. Can we count on your vote in the upcoming primary?”


Here is the real context and not some hack job by a left leaning liberal site. Yep, taken way out of context.

All of that language can refer to anyone who has been attacked and labelled as such by PC worshiping SJW's for not agreeing with / caring about their insanity.

Firstly...I provided the link to the actual memo in my OP...so, not sure how you can infer hack job?

Secondly...it says what it says...how does what you excerpted change anything?

People should actually read the memo at the bottom of the OP and see for yourself how the media takes a simple strategy with supporters way out of context to put him in a negative light. They have something to be scared about if they go to these lengths and lies.

Simple strategy? I might agree with you that there is nothing complex about appealing to racists and bigots and making them feel accepted....

But the author and campaign strategist that was leading Trump's campaign describes it as anything but "simple"?

"An unprecedented targeting strategy must be in sync with this unprecedented campaign."

Which honestly...I read as a half-apology explanation on why they had to target racists and bigots.

My OP is literally based on a Campaign Strategy Memo from the Trump Campaign..full memo linked and all..

How are things in bizzaro world? Where anything anti-Trump including Trump himself speaking or actual docs from his campaign instantly become "Propaganda" when it doesn't support your Pro-Trump world view?

Correct..The strategy was to mobilize folks that were politically disengaged, low information voters (don't know or care who John Kasich is) and who were likely have been called "stupid,” “racists,” and “bigots” for their views.

Well I take "An unprecedented targeting strategy must be in sync with this unprecedented campaign." as people are being labeled by their opposition and is hard to find those supporters since they won't openly admit it when I actually read the full context of the memo.

I would argue this strategy is nothing new..

Lee Atwater pioneered it with Pres. Bush Sr.





Atwater was also one of the brains behind the "Southern Strategy".

And yeah, the "safe space" quote in the OP is the very first phrase of page 4, for anyone wondering.

It's not an "article". It's literally the Trump memo. If you click the link at the bottom of the OP, it's a link to the actual pdf of the memo. It's only 4 pages, so it makes for a quick read, too.

The article takes more than few liberties with their interpretation of the memo, as does the OP.

Based on a description of High-T/Low-P, with the added descriptors of having been called 'stupid', 'racist', and/or 'bigots', you will find that approx 43% of the US population qualifies (at last count).

How it is being twisted into pockets of those that are at the extremes of those descriptors is, quite frankly, beyond me.

Trump would even welcome marginalized voters who were called "super predators" by the political elite like Clinton.

How evil of Trump!
