Quantitative Measure of Attempts to Influence Vote in Ohio Answered
A good friend, who lives in Ohio, sent me this about various attempts to influence his voting in the democratic primary: So despite being towards the end of the calendar, Ohio is once again at the forefront of presidential election silliness. I submit for your consideration the number of attempts to influence our household vote via various means: calls by volunteers(a): obama 2, hillary 0 robocalls: obama 1, hillary 4 door-to-door visits by volunteers: obama 2, hillary 0 negative attack mailings sent by candidate: obama 1, hillary 3 unprompted invocations of candidate's name by one's toddler(b): obama 1, hillary 0 (a) Possibly but unlikely paid operatives (b) "Barack! Obama! Barack! Obama! Barack! Obama! Barack! Obama!" counts as only 1 invocation.
