    one person at a time.  People are influenced by their parents, their friends, their neighbors, the people they work with, opinion leaders.  It is a complex process.  I took a class in "Public Opinion and Propaganda" when I was in college which was pretty mind opening to me at the time.  

    The President helps, but he is just one of many elements needed to move public opinion and without the compelling and consistent work of activists his support would not help as much as it has.
