Mailvox: the best rhetoric

I’ve been asked a few times by a couple different people how to respond when friends and family bring up the increasingly risible Fake Polls cited by the Fake News. Now, obviously the dialectic approach of citing the Norporth model and pointing to the 2016 polls is an option, but it’s not a good one, since the vast majority of people supporting Biden are limited to rhetoric.

So, I suggest simply saying: “You’re not trying to convince me, you’re trying to convince yourself.” 

Leave it at that and watch the wheels start spinning and the smoke start rising. Because the best rhetoric is always rooted in the truth.
