What if the party conventions swapped audiences? Democrats speaking to Republicans and visa versa
I don't pay too much attention to politics, but after watching a bit of both the Republican and Democratic conventions I've come to the conclusion that there is something fundamentally silly about both of them. In each case, the speakers are "preaching to the choir" for the most part.
They don't need to sell the audiences on what they're saying--the people listening already agree with them. I feel like the goal of the speakers should be to try to convince the undecided's to swing their way and target the opposites party's less supportive members, not appeal to the masses of their own party.
So even though I thought this video was kind of cool (I love the song, and the Pitch Perfect style of it), I doubt it's going to win over many Republicans who aren't that enamored with their candidate:
Try filling the Democratic convention with a Republican audience and visa versa. I'd love to hear the kind of speeches we'd get then...
