You will prepare and submit a term paper on US Electoral College by Bennett. Your paper should be a minimum of 250 words in length. Delegates selected by state, by state caucuses, or for their political prominence in their parties attend the conventions that political parties hold. For one to win, they need a majority delegate votes.
Each elector casts a vote for a candidate for the presidency. The candidate who receives a majority of the votes becomes the president.
Strategies for a successful election
For one to win during an election, one must adhere to various different strategies. The following commandments should be followed.
Responding to attacks
When one’s opponent comments on something negative about us, we should fight back immediately by responding to their criticism. The process of response should take place within a day (Bennett, 2006, p. 54).
Not campaigning to one’s base
One should not campaign for votes they already have but should target the democratic voters who are not satisfied with one’s opponent.
The use of Negative Ads
One sail through by carrying out a mud-slinging game to turn off the voters. One should clearly discuss the mistakes of the opponents and criticize their stance (Bennett, 2006, p. 57).
Avoiding Real Issue
One should avoid offering solutions to burning social issues since it may alienate various segments of the population thus losing votes.
Use of the right medium
One must buy television spots to reach the nation at one price. This will cut short the cost of paying many radio stations and newspapers (Bennett, 2006, p. 60).
