"It is rare for campaigns to be able to turn an opponent's own words directly into political appeals. Most office seekers are careful about what they say to prevent this from happening. Trump is completely tone deaf about his words," said Darrell West, vice president of governance studies at the Brookings Institution. "He has no ability to understand how his own language can be used against himself. This is one way his political inexperience really hurts him."
"Gore is the perfect messenger for the idea that third-party voters can hurt Democratic candidates," said Darrell West, director of governance studies at the Brookings Institution. "He can help her appeal to young voters and those worried about climate change. He has a lot of credibility on those issues. I would anticipate he will argue that people should not waste their votes on Johnson or Stein."
