I've spent about an hour this morning phone banking for Lamont via the magic of Move On. Join the party!
So far my responses are running Ned by about a third. One woman I called knew nothing about "the other guy" and will vote for Lieberman because he has a nice smile, kind eyes and a pleasant voice. She also thought that he was honest. That probably explains why everyone who stumps for Lieberman never fails to mention what a good/nice man he is. It's a better tactic than mentioning his voting record - unless you're talking to Republicans.
I'm also getting some "mind your own business" calls. They're the worst.
Back to the phones!
UPDATE: I just talked to a woman who said "I can't understand why people won't forgive Joe and move on. People forgave Kerry. People forgave, what's her name? Hillary." It's not my job to persuade and I wouldn't think of disagreeing with people I cold call anyway, so I just made sympathetic sounds and agreed that it's important to vote. She's 89 and never misses a vote. Good for her.
UPDATE: Okay, so that was about 90 minutes of calling. I attempted to reach 108 Dem voters and got through to 25. Most people weren't home. Lamont got the most yes votes, but I didn't keep track of the numbers. Dems voting for the Republican in the Congressional race (Simmons - R/Courtney - D) all picked Lieberman in the primary. Undecideds in the Congressional race split.
I'll call more people later.
