  • An Obama office in operation

    Normally during the course of a week we used to get around 70 - 90 volunteers a day coming in and making calls and helping out. Some for most of the day, some just for a few hours before the picked up kids from school or during lunch breaks from work. Over the weekend over 350 people came in each day to volunteer to make calls across the country. Yesterday (Monday), 450 people came in to make calls on behalf of Obama and volunteer in other ways. Keep in mind this is just one office in Los Angeles, there are now over 50 phonebanks across the city doing the same. Some are bigger than ours.

      sunny, i have to say that i’m slightly skeptical of your claim that california is responsible for 50% of all obama volunteers. he has huge machine in place in illionois obviously and then there is new york, penn, ohio, virginia etc. also, how effective is phonebanking compared to door to door campaigning?
