If anyone needed any more evidence of the extraordinary ground game organization of the Barack Obama campaign check out this numeric.
Some numbers from an Obama campaign release on what its doing in Ohio:
340,846 — Number of doors knocked this weekend
483,473 — Number of doors knocked last week
1,098,777 — Total number of doors knocked in October
394,335 — Phone calls placed to fellow Ohioans by volunteers across the state
1,224,684 — Total calls made this month
38 — Farthest distance, in miles, that any Ohioan lives from a Campaign for Change office
Now imagine this level of volunteer enthusiasm and professional organization in battleground states and some Red states. This beats anyone’s ground game in any election.
