I just got polled by OFA. Just a few quick questions and it was a robocall

I hope they don't think Romney is a threat here in PA....

1. What did they (it) ask?

2. They asked:

Who are you voting for? (Press 1 for Obama, press 2 for Romney)

Are you able to help GOTV? (Press 1 for Yes, press 2 for no)

For statistical purposes only:

Use the keypad to type in your age.

Press 1 for Female, Press 2 for Male

That's it. That's all they asked and I haven't received a call from OFA this whole cycle. I live in rural, northcentral PA.

4. Andrea Mitchell just had a Republican and Ed Rendell on (don't remember the

Republican's name, but he seemed sane and rational). Repub said that they didn't they they could be in play in PA but they found there is hope - money is going to be spent there. Maybe that's what OFA was responding to?

6. That's probably so, but I think that with every other state, the majority of

people know who they are voting for already and it will be a waste of money .

7. Good -- he's got plenty. Let him explain the loss of investment to his backers.

3. They did. OFA is big around here and has two call centers, plus...

their call from home program.

Until a week or so ago they were recruiting volunteers to call Pennsylvanians from here, but now the focus seems to be Ohio. Plus other swing states TBA.

I'm on the local Democratic committee and there is some legal mumbo-jumbo about separation between them and actual campaigns so I don't deal much with them. They have some good people, but the whole thing seems just a little cultish for me anyway.

5. I was just surprised since I never received a call from them (albeit a robocall)

and with the news that Romney is hoping to turn PA....maybe OFA is just checking in .

8. I'm definitely in Romney land!

Every yard has a Romney signs in it! What's wrong with suburbia? It scares me to tell you the truth and the ads that Romney are running here are very good ads and I haven't seen any new Obama ads that answer them.

9. I am having the same experience....lots of Romney ads,

along with a multitude of PAC ads for Romney, and close to silence from Obama. I am on the OH/PA border, and work in OH. I just had a conversation with an independent voter who is fretting over her decision....and she said that she has finally decided to vote for Romney, mostly because of the ads. I was devastated, and continued to try to debunk what she has heard. The only thing that I did get from her is that she will do a lot of reading and try to find out if what I said was truth or what they are saying in the ads is truth. And if she really does do this, I think she may be changing her mind......I hope so. But it is depressing that there is so much trash being thrown at people, and it is all one-sided.
