1) Wilderness fans: I'm doing a second season! Should be out in January, and I spent the last 2 weeks doing focus groups with voters in Philly (disengaged Dems), Miami (Obama '12/3rd party '16), Phoenix (Romney '12/Clinton '16), and Milwaukee (Obama '12, Trump '16, D '18)
2) Some initial impressions: by and large, these voters aren't apathetic - they care passionately about a lot of the big issues - but they are quite cynical and disgusted with both politics and the media. No one has delivered for them and they don't know what info to trust.
3) Not a lot of love for Trump (though a handful of the 40+ I spoke to are considering voting for him), but not a lot of love for the Democratic Party either. But most of these folks have only heard of Biden and Bernie. Some Warren recognition too. Not much for anyone else.
4) But what struck me the most was how little they pay attention to all the shit we obsess over here: very little awareness of details around everything from the impeachment inquiry to Medicare for All - many said they left the Dem debates more confused than when they tuned in.
5) Every person said they're definitely voting in 2020, but many said they barely pay attention/don't trust political news, so reaching these voters will be a challenge for Dems. And too many said they'd be open to a third party candidate (though some said not if it helps Trump)
6) Anyway, we'll get into a lot more detail in the new season, and we'll also have interviews with strategists, organizers, and political leaders who are on the ground in the places we need to win in 2020. Subscribe here and check out S1 if you missed it: crooked.com/podcast-series…
