Handicapping the race for NDP Leader - cStreet Campaigns

Handicapping the race for NDP Leader

Monday, March 12, 2012

Still having trouble deciding which candidate to back for leader of Canada’s NDP?  

Why not vote based on their web campaigning choices? cStreet’s got you covered with a run down of the top candidates CMS (Contenent Management System) & bulk email choices.

5) Thomas Mulcair
Site: ThomasMulcair.ca
CMS: Wordpress (non-custom template)
Bulk Email: Constant Contact
Breakdown: The campaign front runner disappoints in opting for a boring, and un-customized wordpress template & opts for Constant Contact for bulk email.

4) Brian Topp
Site: BrainTopp.ca
CMS: Drupal
Bulk Email: Mad Mimi
Breakdown: Odd choice in the quirky Mad Mini for bulk email, but the Topp campaigns has built a very slick custom Drupal site.

3) Paul Dewar
Site: PaulDewar.ca
CMS: Drupal
Bulk Email: Constant Contact
Breakdown: Much like Brian Topp’s campaign, Dewar’s team has built a slick modern looking campaign site in drupal but is using the more mainstream Constant Contact for bulk email.

2)  Peggy Nash
Site: PeggyNash.ca
CMS: Wordpress (custom theme)
Bulk Email: Constant Contact
Breakdown: Peggy’s campaign has opted for Wordpress, and built a great looking and interactive site, and following a trend, opting for Constant Contact for bulk email.

1) Nathan Cullen
Site: NathanCullen.ca
CMS: NationBuilder
Bulk Email: NationBuilder
Breakdown: Nathan Cullen’s campaign comes out on top, using NationBuilder as their CMS, CRM & bulk email providers. Maybe we’re a little biased.
