President Donald Trump has been relentless in his political attacks on former Vice President Joe Biden, despite the fact that the RNC recently poll-tested 20 different lines of attack against Biden and found that none of them were effective.
Trump’s latest line of attack has been the ill-defined conspiracy theory known as “Obamagate” — which Mediaite founder Dan Abrams has dismissed as “100 percent bullshit” — but it certainly wasn’t the first, and won’t be the last.
If recent past is prologue, the presumptive Democratic nominee might tale comfort in knowing that Trump’s political apparatus is having a difficult time divining a persuasive attack strategy.
“At a meeting with political advisers this week that included Karl Rove, the top strategist for former President George W. Bush, Mr. Rove warned Mr. Trump that he had fallen behind in the task of damaging Mr. Biden, people familiar with the meeting said.” https://t.co/YqAOKSkr1R
