Political communication is the art of connecting with an audience and conveying a message persuasively. Ultimately, political communication aims to move people to act, whether they are currently or prospectively engaged in public affairs. The target audience may number in millions or it may be an audience of one. But by activating that audience the political communicator influences, alters, and determines the course of events.
