Following the Democratic National Convention last week, this week’s Republican National Convention seems certain to be much more successful. Despite mainstream media’s best attempts to paint the Democrats as having put on a thoughtful and substantive convention, it simply wasn’t. That’s not just a random opinion; it’s nearly a consensus that the singular messaging at the convention was “orange man bad.” Even many prominent Democrats acknowledge that the case for the Harris-Biden ticket was one of negatives against President Trump rather than positives surrounding the Democratic ticket.
But we cannot go in assuming the RNC is going to do much better. They probably will, but it’s incumbent on supporters of President Trump to do our part to make sure the Republican National Convention is as effective as possible. That’s the keyword, here. “Effective.” Unlike past conventions, the goal isn’t simply to unite the party and juice up the base. In many ways, this is the opening volley into the hearts and minds of those on the fence, those who were likely not impressed with seeing nothing but identity politics flung around last week and are hopeful to see tangible messaging this week.
Here are a few ways patriotic Americans can participate in making the RNC as effective as possible:
- Spread the right messages: On social media, through email, and in real-world communications, we must isolate all the right messages. This isn’t just about going out there and saying, “This is awesome!” It’s about taking the talking points and quotes from the various speakers and getting them out to those who need to hear it the most. On social media, it cannot be Republicans in their echo chambers, either. Take the message to the places where people need to hear them such as in the comments of posts by Democrats.
- Take notes: There will be a ton of information being delivered during the RNC. It’s important to find those messages that we need to hear and echo, and the best way to make sure we’re effective in getting those messages out during and after the RNC is by taking notes. Some will record it. Note time stamps of poignant points. They’re going to be coming at us fast, so we need to be prepared.
- Law and order: Of all the messages that have the best opportunity to resonate to moderates and centrist Democrats, it’s the notion that the GOP in general and President Trump in particular are going to work to restore law and order. Despite the mainstream media’s narrative, most people are not supportive of the riots, looting, and attacks on police officers that are happening around the country. We must make that messaging rise to the top during the RNC because it was mostly ignored during the DNC.
- Minimize comparisons to DNC: It’s going to be very easy for those who watched last week’s debacle to talk about how much better the Republican National Convention is by comparison. But here’s the thing. Nobody’s going to care in a week. Comparing events isn’t really going to stick in the minds of voters as much as a comparison of policies and narrative. President Trump isn’t running to be an event coordinator. He’s running to be reelected as President of the United States.
In this episode of the NOQ Report, JD goes into many more specifics about how we should be handling the Republican National Convention in real time and throughout the week. This is an opportunity to differentiate what the GOP wants to do compared to the Democrats. Let’s get that messaging out.
We need excitement. We need to get swing voters seeing the truth. But most importantly, we can help President Trump by reaching people within our circles of influence with messaging that supports his reelection. This is how we do that.
