Is the RNC convincing undecided voters to support Trump?
Republican consultant Steve Schmidt argues that the unforced errors in running the convention itself— disorganization, last-minute schedule changes, a strange lineup of speakers, and Melania Trump's partially plagiarized speech—don't sell the Trump team as an organized, capable group. If they can't run a convention smoothly for four days, how are they going to run a country?
Steve Schmidt on RNC tonight: "Total failure to anticipate entirely predictable events.” Great quality in a president. #RNCinCLE
And many viewers think the RNC is overemphasizing fear: fear of a Clinton presidency, fear of Muslims, fear of terrorism, and fear of immigrants. People want to see plans for overcoming the nation's problems, not just a list of what to be afraid of.
It's really hard to watch this RNC convention because they are because they are just selling fear so far
Chris Christie's speech, in which he led a mock trial of Hillary Clinton for her alleged crimes, drew big applause from inside and outside the convention. Establishment GOP politicians are backing Trump, something people said would never happen.
The party is unifying around Donald Trump, and that could bring in right leaning voters who were wary about Trump's GOP credentials. There may be minor issues here and there, but you don't see the disunity that media claimed would have happened.
Looks like the media lied months ago about the delegate count too. Trump is now at 1,517 and still not done with roll call.
