I wondered sometimes (CONSPIRACY THEORY!) if the Democrats were doing this as some sort of reverse psychology.... call you every day asking for money, fill up your answering machine, at odd hours, etc. Think about it. It's a powerful way to make you dislike a candidate. Imagine gettting asked for money by a street bum..... no big deal. Imagine getting asked for money by a street bum, a few days a week... for weeks ... (or months.) and that bum is richer than you are. I found it irksome.

PS: It wasn't the Democrats.... was a Romney SuperPAc.

PPS: Yeah, that's 3 separate calls. I never got one from that millionare Obama. Why? I dunno. Maybe he dosn't need to beg for money. Obama has less wealth than Mitt does. This does not compute.
Do they work? I hate them, but obviously they must do something or campaigns would stop using them. I didn't get a single call from the Romney camp or our representative's camp. I got calls from NM, where we used to live. BTW, of the ones that we got the most calls from 3 or 4 won elections. I guess some people don't get bothered as much as others.

They probably figured that any place with so few minorities was already a pretty safe bet...

so few minorities: obviously you know nothing about our state...You do realize the state has only been Red for a few years and this is the first time since reconstruction we have more elected Republicans to state and national jobs than Democrats...

The Delta region of the state and Little Rock have a large black population, NWA has the highest Marshall Island population outside of the Marshall Islands themselves, we have a huge number of hispanics in NWA and there is every kind of ethnic grocery store and restaurant you can think of here in the area. Why is that? Because we are becoming so diverse....

When these first started any candidate I received a call from (or on behalf of) was automatically disqualified in my mind. It just aggravated me that they expected me to take the time to listen to their message without taking the time to call me personally themselves.

Today they all do it so I just suck it up and ignore them as best I can. Thankfully I seem to have dropped off of most of the calling lists, probably due to a series of moves in a short period of time a few years ago.

I never got one call from Obama. Either A. I'm not worthy or B. he realized I'm not an idiot who gives money to random phone calls.
Obama did not make an effort in Georgia. I did not get any calls from anyone in Arizona. My sister was bombarded with Obama calls in Ohio. It all depends on where you live.
