Thanks Todd, Steve Steve, thank you Brian, meanwhile, Republicans wrapped up day three of their convention. So how did their messages play with the american people here with the dials partner and president at Maslansky and partners, Lee Carter Lee people are going to start seeing a lot of the dials going forward. You have taken look at every big event and you have chopped things into soundbites and put them before your panel of dialers and they essentially grade how much they like it right. Republicans are the red line, independents, yellow Democrats, the blue line, and you see exactly how they react in the moment. Steve all right and the lines actually last week were upside down compared to the way they are this week. Take a look here is the vice president. Talking about whats at stake. Last week, Joe Biden said democracy is on the ballot. The truth is, our economic recovery is on the ballot
law and order are on the ballot, but so are things far more fundamental and foundational to our country. The choice in this election is whether America remains America, Steve all right. How did they grade it? The dialers? You can see Republicans loved this message. They gave it an p independents, a b and Democrats. An f whats, not surprising, is the way, the Republicans and Democrats. What we are focused on is that independent line who gave MIKE Pence a very good grade last night. They really resonated with this. They want to hear more about law and order. They want to hear more about the economic recovery. Those are the issues that are very, very poornl to them, so they graded this very well Steve. All right here is a guest on Fox amp friends. This morning, the republican governor of the great state of South Dakota Kristi Noem talking about the chaos in some cities that are run by Democrats. It took two hundred and forty four years to build this great nation flaws and all
we stand to lose it in a tiny fraction of that time. If we continue down the path taken by the Democrats and their radical supporters, Democrat run. Cities across this country are being overrun by violent mobs people that can afford to flee, have fled, but the people that cant good hardworking Americans are left to fend for themselves, Steve, okay, powerful. I saw the yellow line inching up, you sure did you could see. The Republicans again gave this an a independents, the line to look at there. Really they gave it a B. Minus Democrats gave it an f. The only dip here right was when she referred to Democrats as the radicals and thats, not something that independents are liking. They dont like this polarization they dont like the evilness that portrayal of evil as other, but the message did resonate and she, a lot of folks, are really interested in hearing more about her and thought this is going to be someone to watch for years to come. Steve. I think you are exactly right
here- is a senator from the great state of Tennessee Marsha Blackburn talking about why the Democrats want to win Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and their radical allies try to destroy these heroes, because if there are no heroes to inspire us government can control us. If the Democrats had their way, they would keep you locked in your house until you become dependent on the government for everything. This sounds a lot like communist China. To me, Steve, okay, the dialers said you can see there not quite as positive of the other messages. We saw Republicans B, plus independents B minus while Democrats an F the thing about attacks. They generally dont, get as much as a positive reaction as some of the other messages. The question here is this attack going to be one that sticks that remains to be seen Steve. I think the most powerful image visually from night two
was Nick Sandmann, who put the Maga hat on after he was. You know, villainized through the press, and then he wound up suing a bunch of people and the Washington, Post and CNN settled. I think that was so powerful to see two nights ago last night, the most powerful image was of 25 year old, Madison Cawthorn. He is run for a seat in North Carolina. Is he paralyzed, and he did this Americans who love our country, young and old, be a radical for freedom? Be a radical for liberty and be a radical for our republic, for which I stand, one nation, under God, with the liberty and justice for all. Thank you, and may God bless America, Steve Terrific, how you cannot be inspired right? You can see there Republicans and independents both gave this. An a
even Democrats gave this a c which is a big deal. This was inspiring. This is what the american Spirit is all about. So many of the voters that responded said this is the highlight of their night and again. Another young gun to watch in the Republican Party and a lot of people are excited about him and really drew a lot of enthusiasm, Steve Real, quick exit, question Lee. It seems, like the independents this week are a little closer to the party thats having the party than last week. You know im a little bit surprised because independents last week seem to be sort of operating in the neutral zone. You saw the polarization of Republicans and Democrats just like this. You do see independents aligning a little bit more with Republicans this week. You know- and we are starting to see that in polling too, when you look at the CBS. U Gov Poll Donald Trump is beating Joe Biden by ten points with independents. So the real question is this: a trend thats going to continue.
Is this message really speak together, independent voters? We will have to keep watching it Steve. You have to keep watching.
