    I made 13 calls from home (I know that's not alot but I'm just getting started) into Virginia, and only talked to two people.  There were 4 bad numbers, and the rest not home.

    I had the feeling I was culling the list for something, and perhaps that is for those calling from OFA offices.

    God, the Obama people are smart.

      been just describing the effect of the predictive dialer tool, which is unavailable online. You have to be in person in an office to use it. And all of my calls were also upset people, wrong numbers, hangups, etc. So even in-office I got similar results to you.

        this "special" dialer automatically detects if a person answers (or at least is supposed to), the idea being to filter out discouraging calls and such. But it didn't seem to work well, as I think people hang up if you don't answer immediately (or at least I do). So you might be doing a much better approach.
