    science and why the public sector must invest in this kindof research Because while the risks may be large so are the rewards for our economy and our society Right on Mr President Published April 30 2009 Author Steffan Antonas Category Uncategorized The Simple Math Behind The Power Of The Swing Vote After the Democratic National Convention this week and the official announcement of the Obama Biden ticket there s been a lot of chatter about where Clinton supporters stand regardless of the clear message of Clinton s No Way No How No McCain speech at the DNC The reason for the chatter Analysts are trying to get a feel for what the true population of swing voters looks like More than ever parties are recognizing that their futures lie in winning at the center rather than at the extremes because the impact swing voters have on an election is so profound The math behind the power of the swing vote is actually quite simple In his book Microtrends The Small Forces Behind Tomorrow s Big Changes Mark Penn worldwide CEO of Burson Marsteller and chief adviser to Senator Clinton s presidential campaign offers an excellent concise explanation for exactly why swing voting as he puts it is king We hear it every day America is divided into two camps red and blue and the key to elections is just energizing the base Books have been written about it careers have been made on it and movements have been founded on it But it is simply not true Just look at the math regarding generating turnout for the base versus courting the swing voters Voting is based on history the most likely voters are those who voted last time Based on that the case for winning with just the base

  • The Simple Math Behind The Power Of The Swing Vote - Steffan Antonas
    the base the vote is still 55 to 45 against you you have 6 out of 11 If a second voter who didn t vote last time is chauffeured to the polls you are not back to 50 50 as you have 6 out of 12 In other words it takes two new voters to overcome one voter who has changed his mind and three new voters to overcome his defection In almost all cases therefore it is more strategic to get one voter on the edge to switch opinions than it is to bring two or three new voters to the polls It s theoretically possible for additional base turnout to be a factor but in 95 perfect of the elections it is the swing voter who is decisive I thought this was worth sharing I ve included some additional thoughts for discussion in the comments Published August 31 2008 Author Steffan Antonas Category Uncategorized Tags McCain Obama Politics Swing Vote Comments 4 Comments Published by Steffan Antonas To the readers of this blog This post like all the others should be thought of as the start of a conversation so please share your ideas by joining in the discussion If you do please adhere to the following commenting rules 1 Be Cool no flaming and no spamming All inappropriate comments will be deleted 2 If you must curse please do so with style and taste 3 Put your URL in the website field and not in the comment box Finally If you liked this article please consider sharing it on del icio us StumbleUpon or Digg I d appreciate it Post navigation Previous Post 100 Killer WordPress Resources Next Post The Web and TV A Sibling Rivalry 4 Comments Steffan September 2 2008 at 2 26 pm A little more on swing voting Penn actually goes on in the chapter to make some interesting inferences about why the division of America into two camps is a myth It s the growth in mass media and communications that has fueled independent thinking and that gives voters more ability to judge the competence of their leaders and their policies Though the Internet has seemed to spawn more fragmented movements the vital center remains the decisive sliver of voters No matter what you re political views I think the recognition of a trend toward independent thinking is positive news for the US and democracy in general It does however have some negative implications though On a macro level this raises a few questions 1 If populations of independent thinkers are truly growing can we expect the political strategies that focus on capturing the attention of swing voters to intensify in this and in future elections and if so 2 Will candidates seek innovative ways of using technologies to closely target smaller and smaller niches of voters Think long tail politics using services like Youtube Twitter Facebook etc 3 Can we expect the politics between candidates to get increasingly personal and nasty
