Josh Orton over at MyDD pointed me in the direction of these stunning numbers from Marc Ambinder.
In the ABC News / Washington Post poll of Ohio, 37% of those who made it through the likely voter screen said they had been contacted by the Obama campaign in some way or another. That’s ten points higher than the number who say they’ve been contacted by the McCain campaign.
And adding in e-mails or texts, the Obama figure rises to 43% of voters — probably a record for a presidential campaign.
Damn. Almost half of all likely voters in Ohio has been contacted by the Obama campaign. I’m starting to wonder what the dividends the ground game Obama has been building are going to pay off. Maybe it already has, considering the impact of this statement…
