CTVNews.ca speaks with three experts who lay out what presumptive U.S. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden needs to do for a successful Democratic national convention.

Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden and his running mate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., arrive to speak at a news conference at Alexis Dupont High School in Wilmington, Del., Wednesday, Aug. 12, 2020. TORONTO -- It’s a national party convention like no other in history with the Democratic Party feting its presumptive White House ticket of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris entirely virtually for four days.

The campaign needs to define who Biden is and what he brings to the table. “They have to make strong points about why he’d be a good president. It can’t just be about beating up on Donald Trump,” Bannon told CTVNews.ca in a phone interview.The Democratic vice-presidential nominee and California senator ticks a lot of boxes for many Democrats. She’s a woman, she’s Black and Asian, and she’s well-educated and outspoken.

“Instead of a single, long-winded keynote on Wednesday, there will be 17 speakers speaking for a minute about why they support Biden and Harris.” And though shorter, without the long pauses for applause, speeches may have more substance.If the Democrats can take advantage of Biden’s image as “kindly uncle Joe” and develop him as a calm, reassuring and knowledgeable leader, that will paint a picture at odds with Trump, said Graham Dodds, who grew up in the U.S.

But the economy could be considered Biden’s Achille’s heel, says Bannon. Polls show he holds significant advantages over Trump among Americans when it comes to fighting the pandemic, and handling race issues, the environment and health care.“The old saw is still true, that people vote with their pocketbook. So the Democrats need to come out with a strong message about rebuilding the economy.

But still, in the history of conventions it’s “exceptionally rare” for prominent party members to appear at an opposing convention, says Levine. Some Republicans have been outspoken about their anyone-but-Trump stance.
