Obama Anecdote

Today I volunteered for the Barack Obama Campaign for Change by phonebanking from a cafe in the Mission. We were calling up voters in Indiana, finding out who they intended to support in the election, and encouraging early voting. Based on my calls, people in Indiana support Obama over McCain at around 2 to 1. I made about 120 calls, and talked to twelve people. Of those, 2 of them wouldn’t tell me anything (fair enough), 3 were for McCain, and 7 were for Obama. Strangely there were no undecideds that I talked to.

Anyway, Indiana is considered a weak McCain state by fivethirtyeight but my results were sort of heartening.
