As Judgment Day, aka Election Day, is Almost Here, Candidates are Heavily Relying on Predictive Dialers

By Jamie Epstein, TMCnet Web Editor

Political campaigns -- and in particular presidential campaigns -- cost millions and millions of dollars. Organizers, no matter which party they represent, are forced to continuously come up with fresh and creative ideas in regards to how to appeal to constituents at a price that won’t break the bank. Enter a predictive dialer, a technological solution that is enabling candidates to get their opinions of various matters heard before the vital day in which our new leader will be appointed occurs.

Although when you think of politics the colors red and blue might immediately come to mind, there are also other groups out there who don’t have access to the massive funds those heavy hitters do. In fact, progressive running mates are forced to implement strategies that cost almost nothing to get their views out the public before it’s too late.

This need to compete against the big boys has prompted a campaign to be launched, coined “Call Out The Vote.” With the goal of reining in an abundance of volunteer who can help make phone calls to drive home progressive candidates’ messages including Elizabeth Warren, Alan Grayson and Rob Zerban, a predictive dialer free from complexity is being utilized to improve efficiency significantly. This robust dialer can power countless calls at one time and eliminates these kind hearted soled participants who by the way aren’t getting paid, from sitting and wasting time listening to busy signals or even voicemail messages.

Everyone involved in this political race is doing their part to get those into office they truly feel deserves it. Grayson said in a statement, “The Koch Brothers, they can spend millions but they have only two voice boxes. … And Karl Rove (News - Alert) could spend his tens of millions, but he’s only got one voice also. You are our voices. … What you do is invaluable. Scientific peer review studies have shown that people pay much more attention to you than they pay to any 30-second ad that they see on TV, any ad that they hear on the radio, any literature piece they see in the mail or any robo call. You are our most effective weapon.”

Even though Grayson’s statement holds some merit, without a predictive dialer in place these individuals would be forced to manually dial each and every number on their never ending list which wouldn’t yield results even close to what a dialer solution can achieve. Further, these dialers are extremely easy to use in order to push out a survey or poll to find out the inside scoop on what people are truly thinking and feeling about the upcoming election.

As the presidential race for 2012 nears closer by the day, these findings will prove crucial to candidates hoping to pull out a win.
