‘Dilbert’ creator Scott Adams has decided to come off the sidelines and endorse a candidate for President of the United States. His choice, however, is more self-protection-based than outcome-oriented. While his prediction remains that Trump will win in a landslide, for ‘safety reasons’ he is endorsing Hillary…
This past week we saw Clinton pair the idea of President Trump with nuclear disaster, racism, Hitler, the Holocaust, and whatever else makes you tremble in fear.
That is good persuasion if you can pull it off because fear is a strong motivator. It is also a sharp pivot from Clinton’s prior approach of talking about her mastery of policy details, her experience, and her gender. Trump took her so-called “woman card” and turned it into a liability. So Clinton wisely pivoted. Her new scare tactics are solid-gold persuasion. I wouldn’t be surprised if you see Clinton’s numbers versus Trump improve in June, at least temporarily, until Trump finds a counter-move.
