I don't know if you find data as exciting as we do at CES. If not, we hope you can understand our desire to find the "nuggets of gold" data can reveal. I was recently asked by one of the advocacy groups we work for about the voting habits of strong voters. For the purpose of this review, we are looking at what CES Calls a 4V Voter. A 4V Voter is a voter who has voted four of the last four similar elections. We built our models using 2012, 2010, 2008, and 2006 General Elections. Then we pushed the model forward against 2018, 2016 and 2014 General Elections. Here is what we see:
Review of Tarrant County 4V Voters (VVVV 2012, 2010, 2008, and 2006 General Elections)
In all, we identified approximately 168,000 voters in Tarrant County who voted in all four of 2012, 2010, 2008, and 2006 General Elections.
We believe this simply confirms the general consensus that Voters who vote, VOTE! Your campaign knows these voters are showing up, who they are and where they live, what is your plan to reach these voters?
I like to remind myself often we are creatures of habit. What we grew up believing, we do. What we have seen done, we do. What we feel is important, we do. What we believe we can affect, we do. If we can model proper civil discourse and develop a sense of responsibility to vote amongst those who don't, we will see surly see greater and more consistent voter participation amongst voters who don't vote as regularly.
In our next review we will look at the flip side, what do we expect from a 4N model? Voters who do not have any voting record. (NNNN - Did Not Vote 2012, 2010, 2008, and 2006 General Elections)
Hebrews 11:6 NIV
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
