The Obama Campaign Strategy
(6 pages of text)
In November 2007, Barack Obama, along with his chief strategist and campaign manager, was faced with a Gallup Poll of Democratic Presidential Candidates that indicated among Democratic voters Hillary Clinton held 48 per cent support of voters, compared with Obama's 21 per cent. Pundits and analysts essentially declared the race over; however, the triumvirate was convinced they had devised a perfect campaign strategy to overcome the long odds and win the nomination. Their confidence was validated when Barack Obama was elected the President of the United States in November 2008. This win was aided by a strategy that focused on competing in markets that other candidates did not, and embracing technological developments in a manner that other candidates would not. The Obama campaign employed such tools as lowering the target donation from potential donors, competing in non-traditional markets, unique resource allocation and use of technology to gain tactical advantages.
