2016 Election Might Be Won By Influencing "The Persuadables"

WASHINGTON, July 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are driving dynamics in 2016, unlike any previous election cycle. Many Republican and Democratic voters are considering crossing party lines in November because of their affinity for—or dislike of—the presidential candidates. With the unusual nature of this election cycle, many pundits believe the 2016 elections can be won by reaching and motivating a distinct segment of voters. ALC-Aristotle Political Precision has bundled these voters into new digital data audiences called "The Persuadables" for use by political campaigns and causes.

The Persuadables audience contains more than twenty million names, including "switch-hitters" like declared Republicans and Democrats who have donated to the other party, and individuals who have recently changed party affiliation. In addition, The Persuadables contains populations that have a higher propensity to vote for the other party's candidates because of the unique dynamics of this Trump-Clinton election. These populations include college-educated Republican women, Rust Belt/blue collar Democratic men, and Hispanic and African American Republicans. Further, The Persuadables includes newly registered voters.

According to John Aristotle Phillips, Founder and CEO of Aristotle, "The 2016 election cycle has proven highly unpredictable, yet data analysis clearly indicates that certain voters are far more susceptible to switching their party alliances in November at both the presidential level and further down ticket. To help ensure that political campaigns can access and target these persuadable voters, we worked with ALC to create The Persuadables and custom-built refined voter segments that can be instrumental in determining the course of many competitive races."

ALC-Aristotle Political Precision is the most comprehensive, up-to-date digital audience for the political marketplace. The database offers more than 250 million online IDs and over 500 unique segments. The sheer mass, as well as the granularity of data contained in Political Precision, helps campaigns and advocacy groups deliver more relevant messages, to more precise targets, through more channels, and thereby improve campaign and fundraising results.

The audience can be accessed via the major DSPs, DMPs, ad exchanges and can be directly synced with most platforms. In addition, Political Precision can also be used for modeling and analytics.
