Our task is clear: we will peel away each layer of this campaign, decode the images the candidates project, analyze the political and message strategy, examine the public mood, and look at each candidate’s roadmap to victory. To do this, we will immerse ourselves in strategy, polls, issues, data, and media. We will dissect ads, debates, rhetoric, stagecraft, and images – and show how the press and pundits covered it all.
