Gaffes, debates and media narratives play a greater role in primaries than in presidential elections. [14] [24] Traditional ground campaigning and voter contacts remain the most effective strategies. [21] [25] Some research suggests that knocking on doors can increase turnout by as much as 10% [26] and phone calls by as much as 4%.

[37] According to political scientists Donald Green and Alan Gerber, it costs $31 to produce a vote going door to door, $91-$137 to produce a vote by sending out direct mailers, $47 per vote from leafletting, $58-$125 per vote from commercial phone banking, and $20-$35 per vote from voluntary phone banking.
