Ferdinand Magellan certainly had challenges in the 1500s when he was able to circumnavigate the globe. David Flaherty, CEO/founder Magellan Strategies, certainly faces challenges in predicting the outcome of political elections and the heat of 2016 is no exception. Voter numbers can’t be ignored and need to be turned around if the Republicans expect to win. Flaherty presented dozens of pages sharing intricate charts and revealing statistics compiled for Political Polling 101: The Importance of Understanding Colorado Voter Trends and How to Measure Public Opinion Accurately to Cherry Creek Republican Women.

Since its inception in 2006, data-driven Magellan Strategies has risen to the top. Arapahoe County used to have registration advantage for Republicans. Although those 18-34 years of age usually vote for Democrats, the Republicans often pick them up when they grow up. Voters, especially young ones, want to know what’s in it for them. Money is not the answer. There are more and more unaffiliated voters. Independents tend to lean Democrat. Candidates need to know how to win the vote splitting. Voters actively vote for those they trust and who have a plan. “Turn out” of course, matters.
Prior to Magellan, Flaherty worked in Washington, D.C., for 14 years for the Republican National Committee, Americans for Prosperity, the U.S. House of Representatives and public affairs firms. He has been a consultant to more than 75 political and grassroots campaigns across the country. David is a graduate of the University of Delaware and resides in Broomfield with his family.
