Last minute efforts.

In the last week, in a swing state, I have:
1: Made close to 400 contact calls for the Romney campaign.
2: Convinced a 45-50 year old non-voter to register and vote for Romney.
3: Convinced a first time female voter leaning to Obama to vote for Romney
4: Convinced a third party voter (who may have voted Obama in 2008) to vote for Romney.
5: Convinced a 2008 Obama voter to at least vote third party (and he may yet vote for Romney).

I’ll continue to make calls and door knock for Romney. My personal goal is 2500 calls by 9:00 PM Monday. I’ll probably be a poll watcher assuming they need me. Otherwise I’ll either drive people to the polls or work the phones on election day.

As for individual voters my goal has always been to convince 5 non-Romney voters to vote Romney, count that list as 3 1/2. I have at least 1 1/2 more to go.

We have 5 days to save the nation. What have you done? What more will you do?

      Yes, and let’s not forget prayer, hard work and Donations too.

      All these things can add up to Obama being soundly defeated and a renewed future of the Republic!

    Way to go UncleFred. Curious which state you were calling into?

    This isn’t to toot my own horn, rather to encourage others — there actually are people out there who work/volunteer on behalf of their chosen candidate, and I finally chose to become one!

    I’ve actually been doing similar work, but on the most-local level…school board. The community in which I live is among the most affluent in our state, best test scores and grad rates, yet we also carry the largest debt of any other school district in our state, both in terms of raw number and as a debt/student ratio. It has really divided our community and as a result, property taxes have gone up and teachers were laid off when there really was no need to. Just as an example…our Supt gets a $22k/yr car allowance *and* mileage reimbursement. Its not a budget-buster, but just an example of bloated expenses and an unwillingness to renegotiate contracts, etc.

    I have also been working for Romney (calls from home), and Mourdock for senate…tons of calls over the last week, but the street work has been for the local since we can have direct control on the spending/tax situation…

    Is it just me or does it seem Christie is a better surrogate for Obama than he ever was for Romney.
