Beto O’Rourke’s campaign has seriously faltered in the last couple months since announcing his campaign.
Despite the all the attention that carried over from senate his loss to Republican Ted Cruz, he’s fallen significantly in the polls. According to a Monmouth University poll, Beto is currently polling in the single digits, something like 2%.
Things have gotten so bad that the former Texas congressman is actually looking to “reset” his campaign. This week, Beto seemed to begin the campaign’s restart as he appeared on “The View” and said the Vanity Fair cover he used to kick off his campaign was a bad move.
But the campaign’s latest tactic didn’t make much more sense. The campaign actually livestreamed the candidate getting a haircut.
During the nearly 20-minute video, O’Rourke answers questions from those watching the stream, talks about his children and their upcoming activities and getting that “nasty ear hair” taken care of.
I understand wanting to connect with voters and making the candidate seem more likable and putting them in more relatable situations, but this isn’t it.
The people running Beto’s campaign must really not have any idea as to what they are doing. Protecting the candidate’s image, keeping from anything that would make them look bad, dumb or awkward should always be priority No. 1.
Why? Well, if people cannot take your candidate seriously then you have absolutely nothing and people will just tune out and refuse to listen.
