BTRTN Mississippi U.S. Senate Runoff Prediction and Call to Action: Last Chance to Make a Difference

Can Cindy Hyde-Smith hang on (no pub intended) despite her many racist gaffes? And will you make any calls to help Mike Espy win?
http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2018/11/btrtn-mississippi-us-senate-runoff.html

"In the post-Election Day period, she declared that if a supporter “invited me to a public hanging, I’d be on the first row,” and then she expressed support, publicly, for voter suppression of activities targeting liberals. There is also a controversial picture of her from her younger days attending an all-white private school, a so-called “seg school,” created to allow parents to avoid sending their children to integrated schools. The picture shows her posing with her fellow cheerleaders, arrayed around a man dressed up as a Confederate general, holding a Dixie flag.

All of this has apparently tightened the race. Polling had shown Hyde-Smith ahead by double digits. But while there has been no public polling since the gaffes, there is a report of a private, internal GOP poll that has the margin at a mere five points..."

BTRTN: So What is Canvassing Really Like? Going Door-to-Door in New York's 19th District

What it's like to be on the campaign trail in a hot race:
http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2018/11/btrtn-so-what-is-canvassing-really-like.html

"We were amazed that the Metzger headquarters was teeming with fellow would-be canvassers, over 50 of us, everyone excited and ready to help. We had been told to download the “MiniVan” app which facilitates our canvassing, and the training session was basically to learn to navigate the app. The campaign people gave us a route number that defined several neighborhoods in New Paltz, and once we input the route number into the app, it displayed the addresses for our door-to-door visits. The lists were comprised of Democrats only -- our mission was to ensure they were planning to vote, and to confirm they knew their polling place location. We were not out there to change any minds. We were also told how to input the data, which would be invaluable on Election Day in following up with those who planned to vote for the Dems.

Armed with the app and some “door hangers” (campaign literature about Delgado, Metzger and Democratic Sheriff candidate Juan Figueroa that we would hang on the doorknob if no one was home), off we went..."

BTRTN: This Is Not America

A great new anti-Trump campaign video:
http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2018/11/btrtn-this-is-not-america.html

"Three days ago, we decided to tell that story. What is happening now under Trump is not America. We want to remind people to vote not only for healthcare, but for the values that Americans of both parties have long cherished and defended.

This is an inclusive message to independent voters, moderate Republicans and Democrats, and people who are bothered by Donald Trump’s behavior.

Our hope is that this one-minute message would go viral and, in the last days before the election, remind our country of its highest ideals and what is at stake. This is not simply a rational policy message, which the Democrats tend towards, but an emotional appeal to what matters most about America, our values and ideals, and that we have to vote to get them back.

Our creative strategy is to use the haunting David Bowie song, “This is Not America,” while showing the fear and violence stoked by Trump, transition to the dream of what America has been and can be again, and close with a call to action to vote for the dream..."
