    just curious.

    i was also out canvassing, in norwalk, and i got a much more mixed reaction.  a number of people were still pretty undecided.  this was especially true with black women, who were at home sunday afternoon after church, as someone mentioned upthread.

    they were generally receptive to more information, especially on healthcare, education antd the like.  maxine waters' support (who was out campaigning in norwalk yesterday) was a great selling point too, i found.  these ladies have a high regard for maxine's BS filter.

    but there's lots more voters to talk to!

    everyone come on up to CT for tuesday. this afternoon even, if you can manage it.

    that's true even if you think ned is going to win for sure. (which you shouldn't because we have to work for it.) for every extra point joe loses by, you make another 50 corporate lobbyists cry inconsolably for weeks.

      Middletown and Meriden.  I hit both middle class and working class neighborhoods including a housing project.  
      The thing that astonished me was the positive response we got even from the undecideds.  Everyone was very friendly, took our literature, listened to our spiel.  There were no slammed doors, no bad vibes anywhere.  The voters are really paying attention.  They know this vote is important.  All the undecideds need is a little encouragement.  In my towns, there were FAR more positive for Ned responses than there were positives for Lieberman.  We canvassed about 300 houses of likely voters over the past 2 days (some of these houses had multiple voters).  The number of pro-Liberman voters couldn't have been more than about 10.  The number of pro-Lamont far exceeded that.
