    whether that would connect

    Hi, first I had those phrases that talked about a public reaction, but later on Gibbs returning to it and saying "whether that would connect" , what did he meant?

    What do you have in mind? Gibbs asked his boss.
    Ive got some stuff Id like to try out, Obama said. I want
    to see what the reaction is.

    Here what Gibbs said later ...

    If you wanted to know whether that would connect,
    Gibbs replied, I think you got your answer.

    Re: whether that would connect

    More precisely, the word "connect" here isn't clear to me hence the whole phrase isn't clear ...

    When you connect with your audience (also called building rapport), they become your allies. They become much more likely to pay attention and to cooperate with you. - source
