Is It A Numbers Game?

It appears to be a numbers game, i.e. if you want to affect change in the existing political climate, in a climate where you have a strong existing power, you need to obtain a large number of opposing voters to be able to influence the existing leadership.

Isn't that how the current "tea party" was able to influence the Republican party? Gather a large number of people, make them very vocal so they get noticed, and they get paid attention to.

However, this was also tried in Wisconsin, when Governor Scott Walker took away the teachers union collective bargaining power. There were huge demonstrations, including some major celebrities, but the effort failed to take hold.

So there must be a secret ingredient?
