Common Political PR Practices

Public relations and politics remain closely knit in today’s campaigns, with candidates hiring extensive PR staff or working with PR agencies. Here are a few of the common practices that we use.

  • Spinning

    There’s almost always information to spin in political public relations. Spin can involve the presentation of particular facts that support a candidate’s position and discredit an opponent’s opinion. It can involve downplaying a mistake or making an apology or denial.

    Platform Messaging

    All candidates have a platform, or a set of beliefs and goals they have for the office they’re pursuing. The platform serves as the base for all messaging. Candidates often put out policy papers or give speeches related to their platform.

  • Media Relations and Engagement

    For any political candidate, media exposure is critical in a lot of ways.. Public relations professionals are often charged with organizing media engagements and ensuring that their candidate’s public profile stays strong.

  • Digital Public Relations

    Social media and the Internet have added a new layer to public relations and political campaigns. Candidates need a social media strategy to keep them in the minds of voters.

PR as Propaganda

While it took time for politicians to utilize public relations effectively in campaigns, it didn’t take long for them to create propaganda — defined as political communication that is biased and misleading in nature. As political machines began to break up and the modern primary election system was established, candidates used propaganda to dissuade citizens from supporting their opponent.

Politics in Early Newspapers

Politicians often publicized events in newspapers, inviting the media and the public. These events were never part of a campaign strategy, but they sought to inform voters.
