    I'm not sure the Dems won't put in a really big effort to get their people to the polls, but how do you convince people they have to get out and vote?  We've come a long way in identifying who our supporters are and we've got the people to knock on the doors, but we really need to take a hard psychological look at what we can say to get people to get off their butts and get to the polls!

      "what we can say to get people to get off their butts and get to the polls".

      I think that's what the beauty of canvasing is largely about.  I've never been at a loss for how to talk to my own neighbors locally.  And I believe most people going door to door, even if somewhat inexperienced, will soon find the narratives and issues to discuss that will get a positive reaction.

      Part of it is civics education too.
