Even the most pessimistic forecasts satsyelayagav, Dmitry Medvedev will score in the first round of the presidential election more than 69 percent of the vote. Such predictable victory has an impact on the creation of a campaign.
At the federal level, its hard to call active. To give just one example — the first canvassing Medvedev on street marketing billboards appeared less than a week back. In the informal conversations representatives of some regional headquarters Medvedev acknowledged that even large town received only two or three huge propaganda posters.
But the lack of visual advertising compensates the introduction of administrative resources. Hard to say what is there to more — meet the requirements of either Moscow demonstration of loyalty on the part of the vertical on its own initiative. Even faster than the second option.
Russian governors, of course, remember after Municipal Duma elections in their own positions lost, for example the head of the Smolensk region, Viktor Maslov, where the percentage of votes in support of "United Russia" was one of the most low on nationwide.
"The Defence companies Kirov district gave the order to make March 2nd working Days"
Implementation of administrative resources looks different. So, on a day or I spoke with government bureaucrat Saratov region. He, on the criteria of anonymity told that each ministry will put in charge of the election results in a 2-or 3-districts. However, he did not disclose the secret, in what ways government bureaucrats are going to provide great results yourself.
"Vedomosti" newspaper now told that the management of defense companies Kirov district gave the order to make March 2nd funny day workers, all workers seem to work and vote under the supervision of the management of factories.
In Lipetsk received more democratic, if so we can say. In the election day at the exit of the polling stations will be able to free citizens to get tickets for all kinds of public transport.
And now the web cited message, which appeared in the emergency room of the 1st of maternity Volgograd. Pregnant women warned that those of them who arrive without identity, which allows voting in the clinic, not the place of residence, taken to the hospital will not.
The reason this works is explained easily enough — to make the turnout in possible above. Sociologists portend that the higher this number is, the greater the percent of the vote score Dmitry Medvedev. In addition, Staff representatives Medvedev in informal conversations called another goal — that the number of votes that will give their candidate peravisyla 50 percent of all the people that brought the ballot. This should give the victory Dmitry Medvedev has great legitimacy.
One of which should be perastseragchysya regional authorities — that did not happen so that the turnout will be higher than 100 percent. In the last parliamentary elections in Russia such facts were fixed immediately in several regions. And for example in Ingushetia officially came to the polls 98 percent of the people.
But later the local opposition at the event entitled "I did not vote" collected signatures almost half of voters in the republic, which confirmed that the election day to stay at home.
