So let us group things or people:

Leading activists

Active allies

Passive allies

Neutral

Passive Opponents

Active opponents

Leading opponents

I learn this yesterday, so the idea would be whatever the issue you are advocating for, let us say bike lanes, the goal would be how to get those groups below leading activists to move at least one spot toward the leading activists.

Even if those who vehemently oppose such as those in leading opponents catagory can move one spot to active opponents, you have won a battle, not necessarily the war. Maybe the next go around, we might get them to move up another spot.
