New Dynamic Voter Survey Means No More Waiting

Gathering data on a variety of voter types has never been easier. Voter Gravity has long possessed the ability to hold multiple surveys in one account and assign each survey to different features or walk lists. But every survey has not been available to every voter at the same time. This has changed.

Now switch surveys instantaneously! Our new dynamic survey feature still lets clients choose a default phone or mobile survey, but in the event that someone other than the target voter answers the phone or door, you can change surveys while speaking with them to account for their unique needs. With this instantaneous opportunity, there is no waiting for campaign management to make these changes. Continue reading →

Voter Gravity Announces New Email, Survey, Event and Fundraising Integrations

Over the last generation, technology has changed our lives in ways we couldn’t have imagined.

What has technology really done for us? Technology has saved us time. Time is one of the most precious commodities of the 21st century. With the time saved we can focus on a variety of other things that make us far more productive. Continue reading →

Carson and Fiorina Top Voter Gravity Iowa Flash Poll


Voters. How fickle we are. What makes us support one person, and not another? Even more interesting, what makes us change support from one person to another?

Voter Gravity has now conducted two Iowa flash polls in 2015. Those polls exclusively consist of voters who have participated in every Republican primary and general election since 2008. These are definitely the most consistent Republican voters in Iowa, and while we can’t know all the reasons why these voters are shifting loyalties, they most certainly are. Continue reading →

This Week’s Presidential Flash Poll: Walker Ahead in Colorado

This week’s Voter Gravity Presidential flash poll was conducted in Colorado on March 17, 2015. It was conducted with GOP primary voters who voted in all four of the last four primaries, as our target for these polls remains exclusively the Republican base. It was featured in Breitbart News today. Click here to read, “Exclusive – VoterGravity.com Flash Poll: Walker Way Ahead in Colorado.

The poll was conducted using Voter Gravity’s touchtone survey tool, and had 8,296 respondents from across Colorado. All our clients have access to this same resource to poll voters in their respective districts at any time.

Scott Walker continues to lead our GOP Primary voters polling across all states. Jeb Bush always does well, but Mike Huckabee did drop a bit in Colorado. We can’t offer a data driven explanation for why, but some solid issues based ID work would flush out those reasons.

The armchair analysis could be as simple as fewer people in CO identify with the social conservative issues that define Huckabee’s base. But, we let data inform us, and do not make any assumption.

If you’d like to flush out issues, supporters or narratives in your state, start by learning what we can help you accomplish here.

Ohio Presidential Flash Poll

This week’s Voter Gravity Presidential flash poll was conducted in Ohio. It was once again conducted with GOP primary voters who voted in 4 of the last 4 primaries, as our target for these polls is the Republican base.

The poll was conducted using Gravity’s touchtone survey tool, and had 7,130 respondents from across Ohio. All our clients have access to this same resource to poll voters in their respective districts at any time.

We happily acknowledge early polling has more to do with name ID and familiarity, but the results are clearly showing a trend, not only in Voter Gravity flash polls, but also with other national polling – Scott Walker has solidified his position as a Tier 1 candidate.

It’s also interesting to note that Ben Carson, despite holding no elected office, has been consistently showing better than Cruz, Paul, Christie and Rubio – considered more serious candidates by most pundits. Mike Huckabee continues to consistently earn a healthy percentage of the vote with Jeb Bush always earning one of the top spots.

In future posts, we’ll be showing some results of cross referencing these identified supporters against other data in our system such as: donor status, income levels, age or even issues to help any campaign find new donors and shape their message.

Addiction: A Republican Epidemic

Every week we speak with dozens of candidates and potential clients who are addicted to paper. A typical paper addict is either in denial that they have a problem, or acknowledge the problem and have been unable to remove this terrible addiction from their lives. The Republican paper addiction applies to walk lists for door to door efforts, phone lists for phone calls and even personnel lists.

Side effects of this terrible affliction include: loss of data, unnecessary expenditure of campaign funds, countless lost hours spent on data entry, a lack of understanding on key issues and in many cases – loss of volunteers.

5 signs you or a friend may be a paper addict:

1. Preferred status with your local Office Depot or office supply store means you’re definitely wasting money – proof of any paper addiction.

  • Office supply stores are usually where paper addicts go to get their fix and stock up an various paraphernalia associated with paper addiction
  • Only paper addicts continue to spend money on these items when a paperless solution exists
  • If unsure of status with Office Depot, note the look in the manager’s eye when you enter the store. If greeted with “Welcome back (your first name here)” – you may have a problem.

2. Bags under eyes, morning thirst coffee wont quench and general malaise in campaign meetings.

  • These symptoms indicate you’ve been up all night entering data because your campaign does not have a paperless voter contact solution.

3. Busywork side effect: Knowing how many surveys you’ve keyed or scanned into a computer, but having no idea how voters feel about any issue or your candidate.

  • This is what happens when the task consumes your time, leaving little or no time for analysis of the work

4. Regular “dumbfoundness” – this is the moment when you can’t answer questions like:

  • What is our best issue with voters?
  • How many supporters have we identified with our field program?
  • How close are we to our vote goal?
  • How many voters have we taken off our target mail list because they don’t support us?
  • What is our top issue with under 40 voters?
  • What do millienials think about our candidate?

5. Expert in begging when volunteers and staff leave because of burnout and disorganization.

  • While an extreme symptom of Republican paper addiction, this happens more often than most addicts admit
  • In this scenario, people under 30 will not touch the campaign and if they do – chances are high they will leave after great stress and advise all friends to stay out of Republican politics because its “stuck in the 1980’s.”

The good news is – paper addiction is treatable.

At Voter Gravity, we spend every waking moment treating as many Republicans as possible who suffer from a paper addiction. Voter Gravity saves campaigns money by eliminating hard supply and personnel costs, in addition to facilitating more effective targeting and messaging.

Through a mobile application and integrated phone system that take in real time data, we eliminate paper, ink and manual data entry completely. With this real time information, you will save money immediately and make better decisions on your mail and media buys because you will know exactly what voters need to hear, the moment they tell you.

You can overcome this disease. The Dems did it, and if they can do it – goodness knows, anyone can do it.
