The service provides market definition and segmentation functions to help U.S. political candidates and advocacy groups target communications. By defining groups based on location, demographics, political positions and partisan preferences, even weather and other variables, it predicts receptivity to persuasive messaging and helps to guide promotional campaign decisions. It is also intended to help with commercial promotion by characterizing local markets in ways that guide communication strategies.
API methods support definition of a political profile typical of a location based on political partisanship within a state and congressional district. The five-level scale distinguishes between strong Democrat, Democrat, neutral, Republican, and strong Republican. Methods also support characterizing weather variations for a location to predict their effects on message content and timeliness.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
