People Skills Are Critical …

The Hillary strategists have done their homework and their focus is simple …to win the White House.

Winning on the ground is critical … it is like trying to win a war without ground troops. You may have limited success, but when it comes to mopping up, this exercise can be likened to crunch time. Therefore troops on the ground could make the difference between success and failure of any operation.


Trump is using a strategy of releases and rallies but not meet and greet.

Hillary’s campaign is organized and has been the “man in the streets” personal contact … shaking hands. There is nothing like meeting an elector and answering concerns up front and personal. Insurance agents make millions by using this basic technique.

The Democrats have an efficient network of offices which are extensive … all politics is local … is the conventional wisdom.

The good old techniques have proven to be good, having been tested and found to work. Why change for the only reason is to attempt to reinvent the wheel.

Why Vote for Trump?

America is already strong …so that cannot be a burning reason to elect you, Sir, you have little or no political experience and your message is weak. Your image is not great either and you alienated many female electors.

Muslims and Hispanics are upset with your ill-advised comments. You have not been as diplomatic as you should have been. Politics is a people thing. Feelings cannot be trampled on without negative consequences.

Get real Mr. Trump you have not given a good reason to electors to vote for you. So they will not give you the success you so badly yearn for.

In my perspective sound people skills are critical and not hype that will make the real difference.

Do you agree with my views? Let us hear your point of view.

As usual the verdict is yours.
