Let us not overlook the fact that over 3,000 died today.

It looks like we may hit a new high mark today. This on the day that we learn a Trump advisor said we want them infected.

Phonebanking for dummies version 2.0

Actually there are no dummies here but I hope I got your attention. This might be the most important thing you read in the next 30 seconds. Seriously though I posted a piece on calling in to Georgia from Michigan a few days ago. Lots of questions and someone asked if I could do a seminar. I've done it for over 20 years 17 weeks in Michigan this time around and now in Ga. just asked for all links everyday so I can just jump on when I'm available. By the way I was in the Insurance and financial services business so you get good on a phone or starve.

One question I was asked, was there a script? The answer is yes but. Most adults don't want to be read to I can tell when someone is following a script I want something personal. In this instance there really are only three questions that are pertinent anyway. Do you support John? Do you support Raphael? Do you have a plan to vote? I also tell them I am calling from Michigan. I believe it lets them know I think this is important.

Tailor your pitch the screens will tell you age and sex. In most cases what works on us seniors might not be best approach to a gen. Xer. Once they start talking shut up and listen, they will tell you what is important to them. In this instance the health of portfolios over people really hits home.

Be prepared for anything. In this cycle in Mi. I got a mom who grabbed the phone because she was waiting to hear from a doctor because her son was dying of Covid without her. Obviously we didn't talk politics we just talked I was glad it was me who got her number. Also had a man who had lost his female partner of 30 years. When I asked if she was there he answered she was out. I segued into his leanings as we talked, he told me she wasn't out she had died. He needed someone to talk to and at that moment that was me. Be prepared to be a cheerleader sometimes that is what's needed if they are on our side but are overwhelmed.

It can be soul sucking to get no answers but it is a numbers game. In Georgia I found moving to late shift was most productive. Let a good call motivate you and use it to tell someone what their neighbor just told you. The best answer I got in this whole cycle was one word from a 70 year old woman. When I asked what was important to her she said honesty. The answer was so stunning and simple it gave me pause.

Study your script but only use the part that you think is useful and hit's you. These are my experiences. Your mileage may vary.

Amazing Formula 1 streak to end.

Lewis Hamilton tests positive with mild symptoms. Will miss at least next Grand Prix.

America is paying a yuuuge Trump tax today.

It is almost certain as we pass 14 million cases we will also have more than 2,500 deaths. Trump also killed 110 veterans today. Let that not be forgotten among all the other stuff.

After phonebanking in to Georgia from Michigan last night

I have drawn a conclusion. I don't have a great deal of experience with Georgia voters only having called three weeks. However I do have 20 plus years doing it in Mi. 17 weeks this time around. I could feel something change 2 weeks in in Mi. suddenly people who identified as Republicans were willing to talk. Calling Georgia last night I sense the one thing that is really under the skin of Georgians is current Senators making the health of their portfolios more important than their constituents health.
I think that more than anything is the thing to keep hammering at. No one I talked to last night will even try to defend that.

As we always knew there was a big undercount of deaths from Coronavirus.

My state Mi. has had a bunch of requalifications in last couple weeks. 112 old deaths were included in 187 total today. Not sure about other states, but I'm betting if they are on the up and up like mine we are gonna clean up some of the undercount.

John Ossoff FB page says FBI investigating Perdue.

Just hopped over to my FB page and that popped up. Says Goldman Sachs records show he directed own trades. He has been claiming he had no control. This could be a BFD.

Amongst all the euphoria let's remember Trump will most likely

kill 2,000 Americans today. 90 some will be veterans. That absolutely needs to be repeated every day.

Meanwhile U S is paying a yuuuge Trump tax as we approach 2,000 deaths today

If I remember correctly we went from 11 million cases to 12 million since Sunday. We need to keep this on the news along with all the other shit. I feel this is strongest point to use in Georgia election. My calling today leads me to believe this is still very important to Georgians.

My? Republican Congressman Tim Walberg says he has the Coronavirus.

Considering he lies about everything I won't believe it until I see pictures of him on a ventilator.
