This was what Kwadwo Alan Kyeremanteng, a flagbearer aspirant of the NPP said to party loyalists and potential delegates in New York on his ‘short visits’ to the US. The twice defeated aspirant inter alia, went to the US to canvass for votes ahead of the Party’s Presidential primaries.
?The challenge that we have is not?convincing our core voters in the?party,? ?? Almost?invariably you can imagine that if?everything goes well you can expect?that our core voters will vote for us.
The difference lays in how we?convince the swing voters ??
?Let us try to understand the?psychology of these swing voters???he explained. ?
They are swing voters?because there are not aligned?necessarily to any party. When you?want to deal with a floating voter?you?ve got to understand his?psychology and almost invariably it is?a question of this is the man I want?
The advantage that I have is that I?have an appeal, somehow, to these?floating voters.?
We have a margin of between?300 and 500,000 people who?always decide the final vote and so I?ask for your support because if indeed?we can all work together to put me as?the next flagbearer, I can assure you?that 2016 we?ll be back in power,?
However, the Chief Editor of the New Crusading Guide newspaper Abdul Malik Kwaku Baako alias ‘Walking encyclopedia’ believed that per the composition of the NPP Delegates, Mr. Alan should rather direct his psychological knacks to convince them to vote for him as presidential candidate in the upcoming primaries.
Kwaku Baako on JoyNews ‘News File’ opined that Mr. Alan statements on floating voters is not concerted effort in line with the reality check and therefore council Mr. Alan and his team to focus on winning primaries.
“You can’t talk about floating voters when you are not a presidential candidate yet.”
