To accomplish a "gain" by this method, we would need to wake up 4,000 people EACH DAY. That is slightly over half of the 'new people' entering the US (by either birth or immigration). If we get less than that, the opposing side is gaining faster.
I'd like to think our numbers are in the tens of millions but I seriously doubt that we gain more than half of the 2.8 million new people each year, 230k each month or 7700 each day.
And this doesn't even account for attrition. In light of this, we need double those numbers (2.5M people are replaced each year).
Barring some extremely viral news that exposes corruption in an instant, waking people up is, never has and never will be a solution. We must look to other ways.
