Anonymous asked: What are peoples reactions to being door knocked by that party? Are they generally open to talking about it?
yeah, they are actually. it’s a progressive area and the particular party in question has a decent reputation. if people aren’t interested I don’t push it — that’s not just aggressive and creepy, it’s also bad strategy, so it’s not like there’s a conflict there. I only actually doorknocked one street or so, most of the time I put in was leafleting. but it was a pretty positive experience, it’s reminded me that doorknocking is actually a really important thing to do in any political campaign, especially one that’s grounded in a particular geographic area. it’s one of those basic, tedious, unglamourous, foundational things that gets obscured by locking yourself to the Prime Minister and dramatic shit like that.
