Best Answer

During the 'Revolution of 1917' in Russia, the 'Bolsheviks' (or, Communists) took power through a combination of methods and actions. As just one example, they were very well organized and zealously committed to their cause, which could not be said of the majority of their enemies in the revolution. As another, they took advantage of the wide-spread peasant resentment against the ruling dynasty of Russia to increase their strength considerably.

They convinced the people that they were the peoples party. They promised the people land, shelter, and bread. Which caused the Red Army (Bolsheviks) to outnumber the white army in the Russian revolution.

They galvanized the discontent already present in the masses. After all, the czar, his family and his minions were extraordinarily wealthy while, at the same time, the vast majority of Russians were poor. It wasn't a tough sell to get the masses to opt for political change.
