Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 15, 2016
During Sunday's Democratic presidential debate on January 17, 2016, 4US2WIN and Vote it Loud city managers will host viewing parties with onsite polling and focus groups for an array of minority voters in each local market. Key discoveries will be 1) Are minority issues represented? 2) What are the minority views on hot topics - terrorism, ISIS, security? and 3) Who has the minority vote?
Since June 2015, Voter groups from various communities including African, African American, Asian, Caribbean, Hispanic, Jewish, Native American and Women have joined in to contribute their views in polls and debate night focus groups. Baseline data generated from research partner firm 4Us2Win in June of 468 minority voters across 5 battleground states revealed among other things that 50% of minorities do not necessarily approve of the Democrats performance in Congress. The baseline study also found that 80% of voting minorities who participated in this poll feel empowered and can impact national elections. These and other insights from the minority baseline study sparked the national Vote It Loud initiative and now 10 cities are talking. The complete poll results and analysis memo can be viewed at http://www.voteitloud.com.
