Something to keep in mind when making voter contacts: "For Ron Paul in Iowa, Electability is Everything"Submitted by PMix on Wed, 12/07/2011 - 21:09
"As I mentioned in a recent post, Public Policy Polling just released their polling data from Iowa with an unheard of 250 pages of crosstabs.
As I delve into them it’s becoming fairly obvious to me that the single most important contention that Ron Paul supporters can make to Iowans is that Ron Paul is electable. With some reasonable assumptions and observations, I think the case is so strong that if I were advising the campaign that would be the focus of all of the media and mass mailing efforts in the upcoming weeks before the caucus.
1. Ron Paul is winning among voters who say that the issues are more important than electability and well behind among those who say the opposite."
The blog post has a number of crosstabs from the Iowa poll that really explain why the electability issue is so critical.
