The political landscape is susceptible to constant change, and constant shifts in public opinion as a reaction to social issues, politicians’ actions, and current events. As a result, both political and non-political marketers have to continuously adapt their strategies to ensure they connect with their desired audience.
At the same time, voters’ opinions are influenced by many non-political factors. At AnalyticsIQ, we have powered the creation of voter statistics that tell a richer story on constituents, ranging from liberal to conservative and everyone in between. We also analyzed the difference between voters and non-voters to identify key trends in behavior. This data both debunks outdated assumptions about political affiliation, and may clue marketers in to know what day-to-day factors impact decision-making during the political season.
