Canvassing in Indianapolis – May 3, 2008
I spent my day canvassing for Barack Obama in Indianapolis.
The area in which I canvassed was pretty affluent, because the Obama office in Washington Township randomly assigned us a map and a list of names of people in an area that was supposed to be pro-Obama., or who were Democrat, at the least The time I spent was better than I thought it would be.
Among the 34 people with whom I and my canvassing partner spoke, 20 were definitely going to vote for Obama, 10 were undecided, and four would not say for whom they are going to vote.
The undecideds really were undecided. They were excited that Indiana is actually playing a role in this process, but they admire Obama and Clinton so much that they remain undecided. Part of me thought that the undecideds were perhaps the best Democrats we met as they loved both candidates way too much.
Overall, it was a great experience, and I can’t wait to pound the pavement for Barack tomorrow. I think we can do this.
Which candidate wins Indiana seems to be very much in the air right now. If you’re pro-Obama and live in this state, please volunteer to help Obama win here. If you live in another state, please call some voters in Indiana.
