Show Me Victories (SMV) and Braxton Payne served as the Digital Director for the Proposition A campaign in Missouri to repeal the “right-to-work” law. We Are Missouri was the “no” on Prop A campaign committee that led the charge to repeal “right-to-work.”
On August 7th, voters of Missouri sent a clear message. With a victory of 67.5% to 32.5% voters repeal “right-to-work.” Missourians sent a clear message by winning 99 of our 114 counties in the state. A state that just two years ago elected Trump by 19% with Trump winning 110 of our 114 counties.
In 2017, the polling provided by Show Me Victories helped to elect the first-ever female mayor of the City of St. Louis, Missouri, Lyda Krewson. Our team began with a benchmark poll in late 2016 to measure the attitudes and perceptions of the electorate.
This polling dictated the tenor, tone, and substance of the campaign advertisements. Throughout the campaign, SMV continually polled the electorate to determine the effectiveness of the campaign advertisements (such as digital, television, and mail) and to determine if adjustments to the campaign tactics or strategy needed to be made to ensure the core issues the candidate stood for could be better received.
