Democrats: We can’t get things done of we don’t increase our majority and win elections. Let’s pressure Democratic leaders to study what motivates voters & then to run great campaigns and do those things. #MotivateDemocraticVoters #GOTVBlue #VoteBlue #TheVoteIsTheAntidote
Clearly, all the work done by citizens to #GOTVBlue is made much harder without inspiration from the top. We need top Dem leadership and candidates to use masterful PR/messaging/branding/communication/electioneering to energize voter enthusiasm and create a culture of voting.
Dems have a great platform but horrible marketing. For example, Dems have done great things in VA. Where is the celebration and amplification of achievements?
Democrats need catchy slogans and to Stoke voter enthusiasm.
That’s what the Rs did but used lies, fear and misinfo…but it worked. And McAuliffe campaign had no answer for it! Very frustrating.
All the postcards and door knocking in the world cannot overcome an executive candidate who does not inspire voters to vote.
Rs have a crappy platform but expert marketing/messaging that wins elections.
Democrats have a great platform but terrible marketing. If Dems can find great candidates who stoke enthusiasm, with great PR/messaging/branding/communication/electioneering of the terrific Dem platform, we will win elections.
Branding is effective. If Alka-Selzer can have a memorable jingle, why not the Democrats to convey and effective message? trump just repeats lies over and over and over until people have heard it so many times they think it is true. Dems should do the same kind of method, but with things that are actually true and to tout and get credit for all the good progressive accomplishments and goals (which require awareness and support) that will greatly improve the lives of everyone (and most of the trump supporters, the ones with no college education and shitty jobs who would really benefit from things like a higher wage, higher taxes on billionaire to pay for cleaner air/water/land/food, access to healthcare, better education, and all the rest Dems are trying so hard to achieve).
We will fight on! Very seriously, failure is not an option.
Democrats need better candidates and voter engagement. We must pressure our Democratic Leaders to study what wins elections and then pressure them to do those things.
Democrats have a great agenda but suck at selling it and #GOTV. The Rs have a shitty agenda rooted in racism and fear, but they SELL it and all their creeps vote and that’s why they win elections. Their followers vote, ours don’t. That’s really it.
There is so much white supremacist representation because white supremacists vote. Dems must learn how to counter Republican tactics, like Younkin creating a fake issue which freaked out racist white parents and sent them in droves to vote against an issue that doesn’t exist so they could protect their children from learning History.
Democrats must become masters of messaging/branding/PR/voter engagement/GOTV, how to generate enthusiasm translated into Voter Turnout. That’s really it.
Any group that want change will never get change until they vote their candidates into office. Yes, it may be difficult, but zero will change until the struggle is undertaken. Bellyaching and complaining ain’t gonna cut it. Our leaders must get off their asses and do whatever it takes to win elections. And we must pressure and support them to do it.
