  •  sorry, but paid ground troops not as effective (4+ / 0-)

    they will do what they need to in order to justify their pay.

    But it is not the same as those committed to a candidate who can go beyond canned talking points and really engage those they encounter while canvassing and/or phoning

    •  i agree with you. But no one is actually (0+ / 0-)

      going to work the ground game for him unless he pays them. I don't a single person on the goper side that will make a even a passing defense for Willard. I'm not even sure my goper friends at this point are even going to vote.

      Here's what I know: in 2008, the gopers around my area were being PAID by the McCain campaign to make calls and work the gotv. I didn't have a single person come to the door (and I will vote in the republican primaries so I usually get some action from the goper side). What I have gotten this year is a whole load of robocalls. Which aside from scaring the crap out of old people, do nothing when compared to a happy face staring at you on a Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon. But at least the McCain campaign made the effort to have REAL people from my precinct, make phone calls (again tho my neighbor said she was paid). If Willard won't even put that effort in and just keeps dumping $$$ in ads and robocalls, and not buying people to do gotv, this race won't be close for him nor down ticket.

      Speaking of down ticket, I haven't seen any crappy mail from any gopers either. I'm usually inundated by this time with tons of fliers and crap. The only stuff i'm getting is from the dems. I get about 10 emails a day from AFP & Crossroads but no mailings yet.
