General Election Prep Tips for Political Junkies: Part II

Yesterday I suggested that undecided voters and staunch supporters alike add Barack Obama's and John McCain's books to their summer reading lists, while mixing up their campaign information sources. Here are some other tips for surviving the marathon general election campaign.

  • Tip #3: Articulate questions you would want to ask the candidates. And then try to listen for or search out the answers in the swell of media coverage. This way you write your own campaign narrative, without being a hostage of the sensationalized media. Sources that will help you include: Fact Check and On the Issues.
  • Tip #4: Define why you like your candidate in positive terms. If you're passionate, and want to convince your undecided peers to support your guy, they'll be more receptive if you share why you're excited about one candidate, instead of attacking the other guy. Figure out a couple of concrete accomplishments that make you want to vote for McCain or Obama.

Do you have any tips to share?
