Democrats can identify, organize and communicate with their supporters. They are union leaders, federal employees, welfare and unemployment recipients etc. - all readily recognizable groups whose members can be identified as individuals and contacted by e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, phone calls, text messages and door-to-door campaigns; high tech and social media techniques which are both efficient and effective methods of campaigning.
These methods don't work for Conservatives who are are registered as Republians, Independents, conservatives and sometimes as libertarians. They are found in all walks of life, within different ethnic groups and they are spread geographically throughout America. There is no 'list' of Conservatives. Republicans campaigned using television and other mass media advertising which are more expensive and less effective than one-on-one modern campaign strategies.
The Republican National Committee is in the process of creating a Republican database and developing the technology to use modern methods to try to close the gap. But the Republican party's interests are not the same as Conservatives' interests. The RNC, and the Republican 'establishment', want to preserve and strenghthen the Republican party, even when it means sacrificing basic conservative principles.
I believe there is an answer. If enough Conservatives are willing to participate by gathering the contact information Conservative candidates need to win elections.
polls to elect conservatives.
