Chris Matthews discussed President Biden’s need to appeal to both college-educated and uncollege-educated voters in his State of the Union address.

He emphasized the importance of enlarging the youth and minority vote by connecting democracy to voting rights and personal rights.

Matthews suggested that Biden should focus on housing as a unifying issue for both groups and emphasize the importance of hope, similar to Barack Obama’s message. (Trending: Joe Biden Emailed Hunter’s Business Associates 54 Times)

“I think it’s wide open. I think Trump could win. He could win in Pennsylvania,” Matthews said.

“I could see the rural areas where it’s been about 68% in 50-some counties besides Pittsburgh and Philly in that big middle T there. I can see it growing.”

“I can see the minority vote sloughing off a bit. The women, of course, in the burbs can decide this thing… I think the thing that Biden has to enlarge the youth vote and minority vote. He’s got to say to people, here’s why you vote and here’s why it’s important you vote.”

“With the power to vote, you have the power to protect your rights. Women can protect their rights through Ohio, cases like that where you actually can see they will vote a way they were empowered.”

“How do you empower yourself? You vote.”

“So he’s got to connect democracy, which is a big word, to voting rights and people’s rights, their own personal rights as young people, as minorities. You can protect your rights if you vote.”

“But he’s got to tie that together. He has to make it optimistic. And he also has to give a State of the Union address, which includes some opportunities.”

“Now, I was trying to think about what brings together the college-educated young couple and the uncollege-educated, the ones that didn’t go to college or higher education. It’s probably housing.”

“Something as simple as we want to own a house someday. Something that people in their 20s think someday we’re going to have a house, we’re going to have kids, we’re going to have a yard to play in, schools that are OK, it’s going to be OK, we’re going to make it.”

“But we have to get that sense of hope back. And I think the word hope is very important, just like it was with Barack Obama.”
