Effectiveness
  • "Silent Majority" with 76% of voters who are conservative or moderate can win elections!          

 

  • With only 20% of the voters being liberal, Democrats gained control of the Presidency, the House, and the Senate in 2008 using the Precinct Organizing methodology which they called “Organizing for America”.

 

  • Democrats captured the pivotal states of Ohio and Minnesota in 2008 with just an additional 10 Democratic voters per precinct. Jimmy Carter in 1976 won Ohio with an average of 1 vote advantage per precinct. George Bush in 2000 won the Presidency with just 537 votes in Florida.

 

  • Congressional districts can be won with 150,001 votes (~231 votes per precinct), since typically only 300,000 registered voters out of ~600,000 per district vote. Even in a landslide victory of 60% to 40% the winning margin is only 60,000 votes (winner has 180,000 votes and the loser has 120,000 votes). Consequently, to reverse this landslide only requires switching half of the 60,000 votes, i.e. over 30,000 votes or ~46 votes per precinct.

 

  • Voter contact per vote ratios are 1 for door-to-door engagements, versus 28 for mail and 33 for phone calls. Clearly, the Precinct Organizing door-to-door approach is much more efficient and effective.

 

  • Precincts on average have 1100 eligible voters. Of these, on average, 80% register to vote, 60% actually vote in mid-term and general elections, and 30% vote in primary elections.

 

  • It is not necessary to contact all voters in a precinct. Assume Party loyalists will continue voting for the Party and will not change. Instead, target Independent Voters and Republicans who only sometimes vote. With this focused approach, far fewer targeted voters need to be contacted in a precinct to achieve the greater than 50% voter count needed to win.

 

  • Voters in precincts with a 70/30 Republican/Independent to Democratic ratio should be contacted three times more than voters in precincts with a 50/50 ratio. Voters in precincts with a 60/40 split should be contacted twice as much as voters in precincts with a 50/50 ratio. Volunteers from precincts with lower contact requirements should help those precincts requiring greater voter contacts.

 

  • If  have developed a plan to win federal congressional districts, you will have a system in place to easily win many other races, such as state congressional representatives, city council members, mayors, school board members, etc.

"Feet on the Ground" Beats Lobbyists & Money!

 

Despite being statistically far inferior to Precinct Organizing, Political Parties favor other voter mobilization techniques, such as mass advertising, mass mailings, and centralized professional phone banks. With these techniques they can better control the message, it’s easier, and the campaign consultants make more money. They get ~15% commission on the utilized capabilities in addition to their monthly consulting fees. As long as campaign consultants of both parties use the same ineffective voter mobilization techniques, no one will notice that they are not utilizing the most effective Get-Out-The-Vote technique of Precinct Organizing.

 

In contrast, mobilizing an army of volunteers to do Precinct Organizing is more cumbersome for campaign consultants and it is for them more difficult to control the message. Therein lies the power of the patriot movement with its many passionate and informed volunteers! Elected officials are elected locally one vote at a time and no amount of money, lobbying, or advertising can match the “Feet on the Ground” of this volunteer base pursuing Precinct Organizing.

Election Year Actions

  • Identify like-minded voters through door-to-door canvassing, volunteer phone calling, and local precinct meetings to grow your organization, volunteer base, and prepare for Getting-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) for elections.

 

  • Encourage all eligible voters to register, use Mail-in ballots, pursue early voting, and definitely vote on Election Day.

 

  • Hold Candidate Nights (see sub-tab under “Candidates”) as a means to learn about candidates and use non-partisan Voter Guides (see sub-tab under “Candidates”) to inform voters of candidates’ positions.

 

  • Advocate Constitutional Principles, such as limited government, free markets, and individual freedoms, as the basis for voting.

 

  • Leading up to the Election Day obtain daily absentee and early voting lists from the County Board of Election so you can contact voters prior to voting.

 

  • Get-Out-The-Vote (GOTV) on Election Day. Offer transportation & use Robo-Call  reminder messaging (see sub-tab under “Tools”)
