This is the template for Joe Biden's campaign

A front porch campaign is a low-key electoral campaign used in American politics in which the candidate remains close to or at home to make speeches to supporters who come to visit. The candidate largely does not travel around or otherwise actively campaign.[1] The successful presidential campaigns of James A. Garfield in 1880, Benjamin Harrison in 1888, and William McKinley in 1896 are perhaps the best-known front porch campaigns.

4. Based on his recent ads, I think that's well underway.

 

They're very good, and are likely to go viral, I think. Maybe he has some of Bloomberg's media people working on that.

6. He does - his ads have been GREAT, second only to Bloomberg's. Once Biden is the nominee....

 

...I'm sure we'll be seeing Bloomberg launching a flurry of ads.

And he's been sort of forced into it by circumstance.

3. I do believe Teddy Roosevelt

 

was the first candidate to break with the tradition of low-key front porch campaigns. Up until then campaigning as we understand it was considered "unpresidential."

And FDR was the first presidential candidate to attend his own nominating convention. The tradition was for the party to send a delegation to the winning candidate, which then accompanied him back to the convention to make the acceptance speech.

5. Not too crazy about this idea

 

2 of those 3 Presidents got assassinated.

Hey, Joe...use the back porch!
