Election results are telling. They help to pinpoint voter motivations at a given point in time. Underlying these results are an array of factors including a voter’s age, economic class, race, and education, among others. To help breakdown these factors, the Democratic Club has invited back Dr. Markie McBrayer from the University of Idaho. She will share insights into why people vote the way they do and explain the trends she believes are influencing them. If we understand the key issues and political positions that motivate a majority of voters, it will help us select candidates and platforms that are most likely to appeal to them.
Join us this Friday at noon online for a discussion about understanding what influences voters and how candidates can succeed in winning their votes.
