Reporter Kate Kaye chats with Keegan Goudiss, partner at Revolution Messaging and Director of Digital Advertising for Bernie Sanders 2016. He shares some memories from the campaign and discusses why he thinks Democrats should focus more on digital. He specifically wants campaigns to consider looking beyond click-throughs, donations and sign-ups to measuring the impact of their ads on goals such as persuading voters.

Chris Turner, CEO, Stampede Consulting reflects on lessons learned in 2016, significance of the Trump rallies which turned out to be a leading indicator of voter sentiment, and the importance of taking good care of the canvassers who are the human face of a campaign.  We also chuckle over the fact that no-propensity voters are now on the list and will be receiving candidate messages and appeals for donations.  Chris reminds Democrats that they have a lead in persuading voters as Republicans generally don't start thinking about building relationships with voters until later in the cycle.
