Everyone has an opinion about how to beat Donald Trump. But very few pundits have run a presidential campaign or seen how things really work up close. If you're looking for someone who actually knows how presidential politics works, and can explain what Joe Biden's campaign should be doing -- this is the show for you.
Joe Trippi is a longtime Democratic campaign manager, who ran the progressive Howard Dean presidential campaign in 2004 and the historic Doug Jones campaign to defeat Roy Moore in 2017. He's seen it all and isn't bogged down in the viral tweets or the opinions du jour. He's doing this podcast to boil decades of experience in campaign management down to 30 minutes a week.

    Trump Goes Dark In MI, Dems' Senate Outlook, Future of GOP

    Trump Goes Dark In MI, Dems' Senate Outlook, Future of GOP

    First, Joe quickly talks about Trump's ludicrous claim he wants to postpone the election and what potentially consequential message it's sending straight to his loyal Republican voters. (:30)
    Next, the Trump campaign has stopped running ads in Michigan this month. Are they waving the white flag in a critical state already? What opportunities does this present the Biden campaign? (2:43)
    After that, Joe and Alex try to read the tea leaves on VP, and Joe explains something about how hard it is to become VP from someone who's seen candidates vetted up close. (10:08)
    Then, Joe explains how a historical precedent from another one-term president could help predict what's going to happen in the Senate elections this fall (14:55), and one particularly interesting wrinkle in the 2020 election.
    Finally, a question from a listener about the future of the GOP - what does it look like beyond the Trump era? Or will the Trump era ever actually end? (21:30)

    Biden's Big Lead, Kasich at DNC, Veepstakes

    Joe and sidekick Alex Shashlo start by diving into the double-digit lead Biden holds over President Trump in national polls and why this truly is different from 2016 (1:00).
    Joe weighs in on the "secret Trump voter," (8:20) and why the Biden campaign buying ads in Texas could be brilliant (11:20).
    Then, Joe weighs in on reports that former Ohio Gov. John Kasich -- a Republican -- will speak on behalf of Joe Biden at the Democratic National Convention (13:20). Joe highlights this as a major opportunity for the party, and not a reason for Democrats to be up in arms.
    Finally, Joe says who he'd select for VP if he were Biden (19:30).
    Next week, we will being to take listener questions! Please write us a review on Apple Podcasts and write your question in your review, and Joe might address it on the show.

Thoughtful insight from the quintessential outsider whose inside

A great listen that examines today’s top political stories through the lens of someone who has seen and done it all. Question: Should the Biden campaign and Democrats at large spend more time preparing voters for what foreign interference in the election looks like? I don’t think people have a good idea. Perhaps a case of a good offense being the best defense?

Love the Show/Question

Love the show! Question: having watched the Axios interview today, wondering why Joe Biden doesn't just run clips with the slogan "I mean come on."
