As recent electoral cycles have demonstrated, mobilizing a small yet homogeneous and passionate micro-group can be a decisive factor in tipping swing States to win key congressional races and ultimately the Presidency.
Here are some examples of recent elections decided by a margin of victory of less than 0.1%.
|Electoral Cycle||State||Election||Margin of Votes Between Winner & Loser (Absolute)|
|2008||Alaska||House of Representatives||1|
|2004||Montana||House of Representatives||2|
|2000||New Mexico||U.S. Presidential||366|
An estimated 200,000 to 500,000 US citizens currently reside in Israel. Of these, a substantial number are eligible to vote in key swing states, such as Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. By mobilizing this never-before targeted micro-group we can be a decisive factor in the 2012 elections, ensuring a Congress and White House who will stand by Israel.
Beyond the direct electoral significance, mobilizing and energizing American voters in Israel will play a key role in influencing the votes of friends, family, and supporters of Israel back in the US; voters whose vote would otherwise be driven by domestic concerns rather than concern for Israel.
