Evidence does not matter. Many, many average Americans see this appointment as an impropriety. They too would like a job that pays them $50,000 a month to which they have no qualifications for.
Let me say this again: If Biden Sr. wins the nomination, Mr. Trump will make Hunter the campaign issue. He will go on and on and on and on and on and on about this appointment as proof that the Democrats are terribly corrupt.
Let me say this again: All this ranting about Hunter will cause enough soft Democratic supporters to not bother to vote. Why should they make the effort to go the voting station to vote for a political party who leaders are giving their family members cushy jobs?
Can you answer this question, please? Walk a couple hundred feet in the shoes of average Americans who are not as politically active as you. Not everyone is a political junky. Many citizens want to do their civic duty (even to cast a vote for the lesser of two evils), but they can find excuses not to make the effort to vote.
I am amazed at the lack of knowledge on Medium about hard and soft supporters of political parties. To win elections, political parties need to manage their soft support very carefully. To win elections, political parties need to convince the soft support of their opponents to not bother voting. Successful political campaigns are seldom about convincing supporters of an opponent to switch their vote — especially in USA’s polarized spectrum.
Hunter Biden can be a very effective tool for the Republican cause. All the cavilings of Chris Crawford, CNN, and MSNBC — even though you all may 100% right— will not prevent a couple million D voters to stay away on election day. This could easily be the deciding factor in a close election.
My advice: the sooner the D’s ditch Mr. Biden, the better chance they have of defeating Mr. Trump.
I have written about hard and soft support on Medium. If you believe it is all hogwash, you can challenge me on that thread.
