Blog Prompt # 2: for the week of January 22-28
This week’s prompt asks you to consider the rhetorical theories we have discussed thus far within the context of the 2012 presidential race.
Read this article in the New York Times about the Republican primaries in South Carolina and the concerns raised by voters in the area about the campaign. How would you assess the relationship between candidates and their voters as described in this article? Have the candidates worked effectively to establish connections with their voters? What concerns did voters raise about the candidates’ strategies, and what do such questions indicate about the rhetorical effectiveness of candidate strategies in South Carolina?
Respond to this prompt in your individual course blog by midnight on Saturday, January 28.
