  •  I Made Phone Calls In Florida This Morning (2+ / 0-)

    for OFA and there were over 10 phone calls where the phones were disconnected.  I don't know if that makes a difference or not.  I also got some calls where the message machines were filled up.  It looks like democrats are not wanting to talk with pollsters, at least in Florida.

    •  Could be lots and lots and LOTS of reasons (1+ / 0-)

      Snowbirds who haven't come for the winter yet, and disconnected landlines because they only use their cell now.

      That would explain filled voicemails too - you don't check it if you're not there for months on end, and especially if you give out your cell to those that are important.

      There are also a lot of foreclosed houses in FL, could be some of that as well.

    •  Not just in Florida (0+ / 0-)

      I'd gather 90% of numbers on a callsheet are not home/ busy/ disconnected.
