Hire young/exciting PR experts to promote and uplift the Democrats’ brand and make being a Democrat and voting Democrat something people WANT to be part of
Democrat Talent Scouts and Recruiters to seek, identify, and groom great political talent (especially in Red districts to challenge, engage, and possibly flip, those areas)
Enlist/Recruit squads/committed/action groups of young people and engage them to do their own grassroots work (as the young know much better how to engage w youth than us old farts)
Do the same above separately for every conceivable demographic community
Find creative ways to motivate and incentivize voters to vote
Campaigns of aggressive voter registration then follow up to help those voters understand why/how voting is in their best interests and the best interests of their families and communities
Slogans, songs, visuals, posters, art, theatrics, commercials, fliers, memes, emails, tweets, social media posts, podcasts, radio shows, interviews, buttons, bumper stickers, t-shirts, tote bags, yard signs, skywriting, community meetings, hashtags, videos, speeches & jingles to transmit the ideas: messaging everywhere all the time!
Bullet point communiques to highlight Democrat’s achievements
Find ways to aggressively/effectively/brutally put down and neutralize Republicans’ campaigns if lies/misinformation/false narratives
Find creative ways to control the narrative for Democrats and back Republicans into corners for their lies
Make sure Republicans suffer consequences for their lies/misinformation/false narratives instead of always letting them get away with it, rewarded by winning elections with those immoral tactics
Democrats need fabulous candidates who run great campaigns! Just like every sports team has recruiters to find and groom great athletes, the Democrats do the same for promising politicians/influencers!
Democrats must cultivate a rock solid and loyal Culture of Voting up and down the ticket, in every single election, for every single level of government: federal/state/local
Democrats have a great platform, we must become masterful at selling it, engaging ALL voters from all groups, stoking enthusiasm and translating all that into massive voter turnout for Democrats
* I keep a list of GOTVBlue and progressive action orgs that ppl can support or engage with to make sure Dems INCREASE House\Senate majorities in 2022 midterms. I think if cards are played correctly, it CAN (and must) be done:
This person writes “Here in Canada, many of us believe we are witnessing the fall of the US Empire. Would a civilized country limit health care or food assistance for the poor; leave crops rotting in the fields; destroy the educational system; target women and attempt to eliminate their reproductive rights while refusing to help resulting babies; abuse desperate immigrants; pretend to believe in Christianity while perverting and debasing its tenets; refuse to protect the earth from destruction? The world is watching” I am a patriotic American, and I’m watching too. And my ass is in gear to make sure that USA lives up to its ideals and does not fail to be its best.
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).
