“This study highlights an innovative approach that enables campaigns to engage with voters on a more meaningful level”
The “Voter Motivation Landscape” is the first of its kind to specifically address the “why” – voters’ values, attitudes and beliefs – that determine how people vote. Created to help its political clients better connect with voters, Resonate used 51 different issue positions, spanning 12 categories of interest (such as income/wealth taxes, entitlement programs, traditional and alternative fuels, and fiscal regulation) to create these voter segments. The study leverages machine learning to aggregate data from more than 8,000 proprietary survey responses to group voters into its 10 distinct segments.
“This study highlights an innovative approach that enables campaigns to engage with voters on a more meaningful level,” said Andy Hunn, COO of Resonate. “With an active database of more than 200,000 survey respondents, our customers can dive deep into the issues and values that drive people to vote for a candidate – and at full scale for digital media delivery. Traditional targeting methods, such as voter registration files and demographic segments, remain relevant as filtering tools that can be applied to the deeper audience understanding. Armed with this information, political and advocacy organizations can more effectively and efficiently affect all aspects of their campaign, from advertising to talking points, in a very systematic way.”
