    I will now not leave messages as I understand their strategy.  What you jsut told me posted on the phone instructions page on the website would be helpful for future GOTV as I'm sure others are feeling like it's not productive.  

    On Wednesday, I'm going down to a phone banking center downtown as I find it more motivating to be around others calling.

    •  Me, too! (1+ / 0-)

      I think after going down there 9 times, I've been built up by the presence of the other people enough that I'm ready to cold call alone at my house, only it never works in with the kids schedule, since I generally leave during their naps and do my calling then. I was also really jazzed today after seeing the inspiring responses in this diary, and I actually had a 20% contact rate, a bit more than double normal! The people around me were green with envy! I did 104 calls over a two-hour period, got 20 commits to vote, one maybe (needed to get an absentee ballot since was going to be out of town) and one volunteer. Yeah! Also, only one person in the whole Northern California Office OFA Staff even really knew what dailykos was, much less Nate Silver. I thought that was interesting. Doing this work is really getting to know America, and getting to know your allies.
