What are the different types of moderate democrats/repubs/independents?
How do we reach these people?

I think there are 2 main types:

1) The socially liberal voter who is very liberterian. They don't want government in their lives period. Stay out of my bedroom. I don't care if gays get married or women have abortions. Porn is fine. Let the free market decide it all. Very distrustful of big government and don't even think about raising their taxes.

Example of this kind of voter: Governor Arnold.

2) The fiscially liberal voter who is socially conservative. These people are union people who believe in labor and a living wage, yet have traditional family values. They can be religious and have severe issues with democrat positions on immigration, gays, women, guns, minorities, immigration.

Example of this kind of voter: Pat Buchacan.

1. Well, Number One
Is to treat me as a human being rather than a theory.

Number Two is to remember what you like, appreciate and treat me the same way.

Number Three is to be able to hold your liquor whenever you cross the paths of myself and a thousand others here because you're a decent, one-of-us kind of person.
