What is the more effective political strategy?

What is the more effective political strategy?
1) Spending time and money educating voters to alternatives to the party in power and working hard to reach out to them, listen to what they want, and creating tangible alternatives thereby convincing them to vote for the minority party.

2) Spending time and money on "grass roots" protests that educate no one nor highlight sensible, tangible alternatives to the status quo, but instead appeal to "base" voters and alienate moderates.
All strategy is assumption.

You brainstorm, coordinate, and hope it works.
Edit: Dr Phil.
Both Democrats and Republicans have used strategy 1 and strategy 2.

Remember a guy named Reagan?
He used 1 very effectively.

#1. (It’s the loneliest number that you’ll ever know.)

    Your strategy…..
    #1 represents your view of how your side does it
    #2 is your attempt to undercut what the other party is doing as wrong or improper why because you disagree with their point of view.References :

    A combination of the two strategies will work better. The local level politicians may concentrate on local issues whereas the higher ups may devote more time to national and international issues.References :
