Trump ran a campaign ad during the World Series and it was good. Real good.
Even some hardcore Democrats are admitting it was effective.
Here’s some background on the ad from the Associated Press:
Early and pricey: Trump’s World Series ad an expensive pitch
President Donald Trump’s campaign delivered a brushback pitch during the final game of the World Series with an in-your-face national TV ad more than a year before the 2020 election.
The swaggering TV spot, complete with an image of Trump presiding over the weekend raid that killed the Islamic State’s leader, underscores the Republican incumbent’s financial advantage over the Democrats vying to replace him.
“He’s no Mr. Nice Guy,” the ad says of Trump, offering the president as a leader who hunts terrorists and get things done while the Democrats waste time on impeachment.
The 30-second ad, an updated version of an earlier commercial, includes a montage about Trump’s record on the economy and immigration, then highlights the raid in Syria that killed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
“Their caliphate destroyed. Their terrorist leader dead,” a narrator intones. “But the Democrats would rather focus on impeachment and phony investigations, ignoring the real issues. But that’s not stopping Donald Trump. He’s no Mr. Nice Guy, but sometimes it takes a Donald Trump to change Washington.”

Now watch hardcore Democrat strategist Paul Begala praise the ad on CNN, saying “I think it’s really smart. I think it’s a really good ad.”
Scott Adams agrees:

The 2020 election is going to surprise a lot of people on the left, and not in a good way.
