RE: Assignment 5.1 Campaign Analysis Report
Executive Summary

Congressman Mark Kennedy is poised to gain a significant advantage over his opponent Janet Robert due to his incumbency in office, name recognition and his relatively high approval ratings.  However, his campaign could face significant hindrances with regard to how Minnesota views it’s most urgent issues.  Cumulatively and with greater frequency, the people of Minnesota are losing faith in the ability to keep the state on the right track as his disapproval rating slowly rises.

The majority of voters, through his high frequency within polling statistics in Minnesota, truly believe that Kennedy deserves another opportunity to continue running the state.  His persistent advantage could be thwarted if Janet Robert were to take advantage opportunistic short-comings that reflect on the constituency more indecisive segment of the population.

Many voters in Minnesota greatly favor an expansion of Educational opportunities, the North Star Corridor Highway system expansion, and are also in favor of more public transportation which in turn would create more jobs while strengthening the state economy.  Ultimately, schools, transportation, the economy, and jobs are all paramount issues that reflect the voting behaviors of the people of Minnesota.  To succeed, Mark Kennedy should establish a platform that promotes all of these issues in order to incentivize voter turnout, name recognition, positive approval ratings, and re-election.

Recommendations:  Mark Kennedy

The existing political environment reflects the attitudes of voters who are currently seeking better economic and a secure future for retirement.  Janet Roberts is known as a multi-million heiress, which can be depicted as out of touch with average voters during TV political advertisements and political debates.  Steady utilizing this weakness could greatly facilitate better approval numbers which will relate to higher name recognition on Election Day.  Furthermore, according to the Rotational Question 27, older American’s are significantly worried due to push polling tactics which depict Kennedy as “raiding” the social security trust fund in order to line the pockets of the wealthy through tax cuts.   This situation must be immediately addressed to thwart Robert’s ability to manipulate this issue against Kennedy.  The overall consensus shows that Congressman Mark Kennedy has been at the vanguard of transportation efforts and has supported funding that would expand the highway system while creating more jobs.  This in particular should be elaborated upon on the campaign trail through speeches, social media, mass emails, and mass mailings.

Kennedy should make it a point to target the 30-50 year old demographic with emphasis on the state economy, transportation, and education.  The best option for Kennedy would be tie all 3 into a platform that corroborates with better educational opportunities through state funding while diminishing the consequences imposed by voters who are worried about more taxes.  It would be more beneficial for Kennedy to emphasis his accomplishments rather than begin push polls or political mudslinging that could tarnish his established popularity among voters with specific messaging allocated for these 3 major issues.

Recommendations:  Janet Robert

In order for Robert’s to compete with Kennedy’s popularity and ability to garner greatly important name recognition, she would need to focus her campaign platform on exacerbating the cumulative percentage of voters who are opposed to the North Star Corridor expansion and how it could delineate economic viability through increased taxation in order to financially support it.  Kennedy is known to be a proverbial champion of transportation funding.  Decreasing this popularity by tying it to funding efforts and the overall negative affects to state budget ledgers could allow for more voters to lean in favor of Robert’s by associating her with progressive-austerity economic planning without alienating voters who greatly favor transportation expansion like public services.

 

Robert’s should also focus on indecisive voter’s who are unsure in terms of approving of Kennedy’s performance.  This form of indecisiveness is an actual large and valid percentage which reflects a higher frequency of voters.  This average margin can best be tied to other demographics and data which reflect what these unsure voters may deem politically important to them. Overwhelmingly, education is a major priority among the people of Minnesota a very high percentage of the population in support of more educational access reflecting nearly 53 percent.  This could be greatly facilitate better name recognition if she ties her campaign to Education, Jobs, and the State economy while taking a different approach to transportation so as to allow for a more streamlined, yet different approach to governing Minnesota.

The George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management PMGT 6460 Audience Research: Push Polling By: Alexander Gomez

Push polling is a highly manipulative technique in telemarketing to try and persuade a potential voter to vote a certain way.  Oftentimes, inaccurate or biased information is used as a method to discredit an opponent or disqualify their experience to hold office.  It uses forms of slander to effectively coerce a caller into understanding that an opponent may be disreputable without any real basis in fact.

Polling firms are adamant about stopping push polling because of its unethical practice when used to slander or create a libelous environment counter to an opponents true abilities.  In time, such telemarketing strategies will create continued skepticism about the viability of polls or audience research by undermining it’s accuracy to impartially analyze data.

Push polling differs from legitimate polls because the questions asked refer to an opponents standing record on certain political ideologies while misconstruing information in order to cause reputable damage.  For example,  if a candidate were considered Pro-Choice, a push pollster could use that information against the candidate by conducting a telemarketing calls that refer to the candidate as an abortionist or ask questions like “would you consider voting for a candidate who believes in killing babies?”  The question represents information that has been manipulated in order to deter the caller from continuing their support for the candidate and effectively changing the callers voting behavior without the opponent being able to defend themselves.

A legitimate poll would inquire as to the nature of pro-life referendums, successful policy implementation, and what, if any, were the basis for their political stand.  To sum everything up as just “baby-killers” effectively alienates the candidate from larger voter base who may be in line with other political ideologies which could be favorable to a larger audience like economics, domestic policy, foreign policy, or immigration.  Push polling centralizes on a particular demographic and ostracizes an opponent by targeting unfavorability over viablity.

The George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management: PMGT 6460 Audience Research–New & Improved: Comparative Analysis By: Alexander Gomez

The overall American preoccupation with newer consumer goods can readily be transposed to political, economic, and ideological ideas.  From electronics to even new forms of religion, I believe western philosophical thought is fundamentally geared towards newer concepts.  It allows for the transition of traditionalist views into more progressive understandings by refreshing the overall landscape of political thought.

It is the result of a carefully cultivated sociological disposition that dates back to the founding of the country, where new political systems that evolved from previously traditional ones allowed for the gradual implementation of what could be deemed “newer” ideas.  It is tied with such historical concepts of manifest destiny, globalization, and even climate change, where preservation and foresight itself becomes a new idea meant to deter from cataclysmic consequences.

The major difference between marketing products and candidates is, with the latter, the malleability of political ideologies in direct reference to the constituents who vote, and ultimately buy into, the candidate for office.  A product has a particular use.  Most likely, it’s use is clearly stated or understood.  A car is used for transportation, a blender to make drinks, and cell phone to make calls, etc.  What is a politician’s use?  Some may answer it is to ensure the safety of their constituents, other may suggest they are meant to tow the party line, and other’s feel some politician’s have the ability to become mavericks or change society for the better.   The truth is all of these concepts apply and that is why politicians, unlike products, can be difficult to ascertain in terms of what their true uses are.  Especially with the importance of re-elections, campaign finance, budget analysis, and overall polling, many politician’s make it a point to change or reform their own political platform to suit the needs of re-election, their voting public, or the needs of their states.

When it comes to political campaigning, and especially political ads, it’s easy to see how consumerism plays a role in the viability of a candidate.  Many candidate’s themselves actually get funded by huge multinational corporations who may endorse the candidate.  Political slogans have become very accurate in ensuring the success of a candidate in much the same way that consumer advertiser’s create slogans for the success of their products.  Oftentimes, name recognition becomes synonymous with such a slogan and allows for a more direct understanding of a candidate’s platform.

RE: Assignment 4.2 Congressional Targeting Exercise (Georgia)

 

Executive Summary

                The Bush Presidential Campaign is in need of a stronger base in Georgia which can translate towards a secure congressional win throughout the state.  Overall the both races are almost tied in terms of ballot consistency between Bush and Hall, with Bush slightly trailing behind.  However, statistics in the Tarrance Group Table shows a large number of voters could lean towards ticket splitting.  The tablature also shows that undecided voters still make up a large majority of the electorate with name recognition secured on the democratic side.

Recommendations

                The 25-39 voter age range is a highly untapped resource that could greatly assist a Bush turnout.  This particular group is at the heart of lesser understood voters and their voting percentages underestimate their viability should this vital segment of the voting population be eventually tapped in favor of Bush.  Georgia is critical to major Republican win due to the demographic of the state which most closely align to center-moderate values.  A large majority of the population remains undecided and could be tied to less participation from the age group.  Closely associating a Hall senatorial victory with Bush’s name recognition could greatly facilitate a Republican lead win in Georgia.

Since this exercise takes place in 2004, utilization of social media, although minimal could greatly assert a strong influence in favor of a Republican turnout in Georgia.  Mainstream media outlets, which lean towards more progressively liberal policies could be undermined with a grassroots movement that purports to uphold and expand on socially and economically conservative values without marginalizing moderate liberals who could be influenced into voting for Republican candidates.

Respondents of the Tarrance Survey greatly limit the potential of younger generation Americans.   Voting behaviors throughout Georgia depict a frequency of mostly GOP voters at 69 percent.  Creating a campaign platform that touches upon moderate to liberal voters without alienating the conservative base could greatly ease a higher number of pro-republicans with split ticket voting behavior.  Combining Georgia’s Eastern region with Richmond county could easily facilitate the necessary voter turnout for a Republican victory.

RE: Assignment 4.1 Congressional Targeting Exercise Ohio (Schmidt)

 

Executive Summary

 

Targeting the segments of the population with low percentage numbers, which do not know about Schmidt, and those who know of Schmidt but will vote for McCain, will paramount in promoting awareness in favor Schmidt.   Regional areas with numbers that reflect the potency of a potential campaign advertising drive should be targeted to begin the process of getting people more familiar with Schmidt.  Although the importance of major cities should not be neglected, the data gathered illustrates that rural areas seem to have the most impact-potential when targeted for exposure to Schmidt.   Many may not be aware of her candidacy; targeting this segment could be beneficial to her campaign.

Target Areas

According to the Terrance data collected in Ohio, geographic regions like Hamilton, Clermont, and Warren would best be targeted in order to supplement Schmidt’s higher polling numbers in urban areas.  Further targeting of non-union areas who generally fall as independents as well as families who currently have their children living at home would also be ideal.

Independents are shown to be less sure about the direction that their state are going and targeting this indecisiveness while further exemplifying Schmidt’s track record will greatly supplement her campaign goals.  The data shows that Republican’s in Ohio have a larger voter turnout rate than democrats so targeting Brown, Clermont, and Hamilton Counties would help in giving Schmidt an edge in terms of voter awareness regarding her campaign.  There should also be further targeting of age ranges 18-34 and 35-44 who are considered “ticket splitter,” where they may have the greater likelihood to change their minds from McCain in favor of Schmidt.

Cities like Columbus and Cincinnati should be targeted with emphasis placed on Moderates who are liable to vote in either direction, republican or democrat just as a precaution and to boost voter numbers.

Methods of Communication

Targeting the mentioned segments of the population above should be tied to specific age group.   The 18-34 year age group will best be targeted through social media political memes, where likes and conversations could be analyzed so that data on their political leaning could be mined.  Twitter posts with links to subsequent relevant social website and online press would also help to further showcase Schmidt’s campaign platform.  The direction of the targeting should be concise and to the point without too much over-information.  Most of the information that is used to target this age group should catch their attention without being to over-explicative of the facts, yet tied to reliable sources,  relevant causes, or corresponding agencies for validation purposes.

When targeting the 35-44 year age group it would be imperative to focus more on mailings, television ads, direct phone calls and emails.   Responses, or lack thereof, should be carefully data-mined to understand the behavioral stimuli of this target group when exposed to the issues that Schmidt’s campaign wishes to address.  Timing would be crucial when targeting this group since the data elaborates that the best targets in this age group also have families that live at home.  A telephone drive between the hours of 4-7pm would best be suited for data-mining purposes.  Mailings can be sent out with postage paid envelopes which not only introduce the candidates but ask for a return of a questionnaire which could elaborate the targets approval or disapproval.

 

 

 

The George Washington University’s Graduate School of Political Management–Digital Strategies PMGT 6452:”GOTV” Get Out The Vote Ad Campaign Memorandum By: Alexander Gomez

From:  Alexander Gomez

To: Jenna Brayton | Cameron Brenchley | Chelsea Mears |Suzanne Zurn

Date: December 3, 2016

RE: PMGT 6452—Final Project Assignment 6.1 GOTV Plan

Executive Summary

                The Sanders ad campaign will shift to GOTV efforts aimed at ensuring voter turnout during the midterm congressional elections and eventually the 2020 Presidential election as early as next year 2017.  Fundraising will be a subtle backdrop of the initiative as digital media, specifically in the form of social media, digital wireless telephones, and televised campaigns are utilized to maximize voter registration months prior and voter turnout on Election Day.  Beginning Spring of 2017 and Spring of 2019 voter registration campaigns should be commenced with online registration efforts aimed at assisting voters in finding information on how to register to vote and allowing them the ability to locate their polling station months prior to election day.

At the beginning of October, registration efforts should have already been fulfilled or exhausted and push to get out the vote would include direct televised appeals by the candidate and any sponsors or supporters as well as online digital media sourcing such as Facebook political memes with direct links to websites that promotes Sanders Democrats up for election in the midterms elections.  By the spring of 2019, a shift from Sanders democrats to Senator Bernie Sanders himself as a potential front runner for President in 2020 should commence with ad campaigns on digital media and television.

The utilization of interviews, specifically visualizing Sanders reintroduction to the Presidential political arena should be outlined with images during his 2016 run for president, re-emphasizing Sanders’ consistency, policy platforms, integrity, and political foresight.

Online Advertising October 2017 & October 2019

During this time period online advertising would begin the last week of September or the first week of October reasserting campaign goals associated with potential Sanders Democrats up for reelection or newly proposed candidates for congressional office.  Political memes directly linking them with Sanders through televised interviews, political memes, quotes, or campaigning by Sanders with photographs should be utilized for further promote the vitality of potential candidates closely aligned with Sanders’ policy initiatives.  The basic premise of such a campaign will be to create familiarity with the candidates and Bernie Sanders while establishing Sanders’ integrity, consistency, and experience regarding the issues that most affect everyday Americans.  Education, Immigration Reform, Wall Street Reform, Jobs, getting big money out of congress, and overturning the Citizen’s United Ruling should all be a focus of interest to all candidates aligned or at the very least supportive of Bernie Sanders.   Most importantly during this time, a strong effort should be placed to win over Conservative Republican voters and such ads should be tapered to conservative values regarding inclusion and tolerance without alienating core values that allowed Trump his victory in 2016.

Recent comments in interviews concerning Sanders’ role in a Trump victory given by Campaign Manager Kelly-Anne Conway must be answered by Bernie Democrats and Sanders himself as a backhanded opportunistic ploy to dismay potential Sanders Democrats and a future Presidential run in 2020.  Sanders should reiterate that the revolution that he envisioned was one of civic duty, integrity, morality, and humanism geared at making our society better functioning for everyone.  It will be imperative for all democratic candidates to commit to an ad campaign platform conducive to solidarity in direct contrast to Trumps domestic policy, especially with regard to immigration reform.

Ultimately, by the third to fourth week of October leading up to Election Day 2020 and after securing a democratic nomination for president by Sanders, there should be a separate ad campaign that targets disaffected or apathetic southern voters who may have felt betrayed by Trump’s false promises during his 2016 presidential run while outlining any current weaknesses up to that point with respect to Trumps domestic and international policies.  Quotes that clearly expose Trump’s bigotry in split screen fashion showing Sanders quotes on inclusion and tolerance should be utilized to show the political contrast between the two politicians.  This particular form of advertising could greatly ease the transition of potential voters who may have historically voted Republican by giving them a concise depiction of the differences of values in terms of Trumps inexperience or dishonesty vs. Sanders’ experience and consistency with greater efficacy.

Email List

Mass email’s taken from online contributors, registered voters, and especially potential Republicans who may be swayed to vote for a viable democratic candidate should be rigorously pursued in October 2017 and October 2019.  This email list should also include information or data mined from direct telephone appeals or surveys.  During this time strong efforts should be made to include additional possible prospects to confer with their own contacts in order to assist with offline information drives geared at voter turnout on Election Day.  Aside from emails; Billboards, pamphlets, stickers, and signage could be used to promote GOTV drives directly in neighborhoods with a history of low turnout.  Furthermore, a political ad campaign committee will oversee communications by maximizing contact lists by telephone, mail, and digital media while publicizing Democratic progresses in Congress.

RE: PMGT 6452—Two 30 Second Scripts for Press Release: Spring 2017/Spring 2019                

 

Commerical Ad Script 1

 

Introduction:

 

It’s been one very interesting year.  We have inaugurated a controversial new president, the economy is still not completely recovered, educational opportunities are being blocked by corporate lobbyists, healthcare is being threatened, and the deportation of millions which may separate families throughout the US is currently being pursued.

 

If you are currently apprehensive about the new administration and the effect it will have on your future then this could be the most important 30 seconds you have ever spent getting to know a candidate who has consistently fought for middle class values.

 

Under Trumps new plan, it seems that “business as usual” will be the norm throughout his time as President.  That means less spending on government services and more tax cuts for the wealthy like President Trump.

 

The truth is that President Trump has one thing in mind and that is big banks, big money, big business, and big payouts to his political cronies.

 

But now is the time to remember a candidate that fought hard against all those things.

 

Who can forget the man who dared to defy Wall Street, the Bank Bailouts of 2008, and who fought for an affordable college education for all the citizens of his home state of Vermont?  Of course that man is Bernie Sanders.

 

We now call upon you to remember that the fight for equality, justice, and peace is far from over!  Throughout the next four years, Bernie will keep his promise to fight ‘tooth and nail’ against any policies that Trump may propose that benefits oligarchy over the prosperity of the people.  Now is the time to hold Trump’s promises to the fire!  Now is the time for Trump to “Feel the Bern.”

 

Sign up to get periodic links on what Bernie is doing in Congress to promote affordable housing, healthcare, women’s rights, LGBT rights, Civil Rights, Immigration Reform, Wall Street Reform, Climate Change legislation, and job growth.

 

Stand with us as we take the revolution we started together last year and bring it back to you and all of our fellow Americans.  Remember, whether you are a conservative or a progressive, this is our country, we are all in this together, and together we will succeed in ensuring that we truly have “A FUTURE THAT WE CAN ALL BELIEVE IN.”

 

 

 

Commercial Ad Script 2

 

It’s been 3 years since President Trump took office with the promise to “Make America Great Again” by bringing back prosperity to everyday Americans.  Are you better off now than you were when that promise was made?

 

Think about the issues with me for a moment.  I know you think of them, even if you are living paycheck to paycheck still and your health insurance has been cancelled, there are times where you and I both believe the future can be brighter.

 

The next 30 seconds may prove to be the most provocative for you so please give us a chance.  If you are better or have continuously been better I applaud you and congratulate you!  But, to those countless millions who are still living under the tutelage of a system that no longer represents the values that have made American a beacon of hope, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, I ask you to join us and keep Washington accountable.  This message is for you because you have been lied to!

 

No, America is not great again!  Not when children continue to live in poverty and 15 percent of our countries population lives their daily lives wondering if they will be able to feed their children or pay their rent.  Or to the family who is currently facing eviction because there is no affordable housing and their wages haven’t gone up in 3 years.

 

Or to the family who lost their health coverage because they couldn’t afford it and face uncertainty regarding their immediate medical needs.

 

Now is the time to unite together and to learn together the real truth.  And that truth is that Trump LIED!

 

Whether you were a conservative or a progressive, a Republican or a Democrat, Trump lied to a collective group in order to pander to the emotional distress of millions of people who faced hardship and continue to face hardship under his presidency.

 

But there is an answer to his fraudulent rhetoric and his name is Bernie Sanders.  Sign up now to get periodic updates on what Bernie is doing to keep Washington accountable for Trumps inefficiency in making sure that we Americans have our needs met!  Being at the frontlines of policy dives like Affordable Housing, LGBT rights, Civil Rights, Women’s Rights, Raising the Minimum wage, Healthcare, Immigration Reform, Wall Street Reform, and getting big money out of politics, it is our collective voice that will help get Washington back on track.  Help us make Washington and President Trump “Feel the Bern this season by visiting our website, getting up to the minute information on Bernie’s policy drives, and how you can contribute!

 

Remember, whether you are a conservative or a progressive, this is our country, we are all in this together, and together we will succeed in ensuring that we truly have “A FUTURE THAT WE CAN ALL BELIEVE IN.”
