Everybody always throws up their hands at election time and asks, 'what in the world could little ol'e me possibly do to make a difference in this election?"
Well, I'll have a great idea for you, for all of us (because it will work a lot better if we all do it)! I've been having a lot of success with strangers - pretending that I was a former Obama supporter! I never say that I was, but in New York they just assume it. So I just don't tell them that I wasn't.
Then I say something like:
"I really had high hopes for Obama, but he's disappointed on so many levels. He didn't cut the deficit in half like he promised, he didn't make government more transparent, he hasn't made the middle east more peaceful - just the opposite in fact. I don't feel like the world is a safer place - it feels more dangerous. Gas prices are sky high, and no one can afford them. And he hasn't made Washington more bi-partisan and that was his original promise. Oh, and he hasn't closed Gitmo either! And you know what? Romney doesn't seem that bad. I think it's time we give somebody else a chance to fix the problems."
You'd be amazed at how many liberals and "moderates" will nod in agreement with all those things. (And no, just for the record, I don't think Gitmo should be closed - but it is another broken promise - one that liberals care about).
All these people are potential changed minds! Just talk to them!
And if you can get a liberal to nod in agreement with those things - you know what you've just done? Maybe you haven't converted them into a Romney voter, but you have robbed them of some of their motivation to vote for Obama. And many of them just might sit home on election day.
If we EACH could win over just one person, just one voter, then we will have made a profound difference and Romney would win by a landslide. Imagine 40 MILLION true conservatives each winning over one person! That would be 40 million more votes for Romney (or fewer votes for Obama).
By the way this method works especially well with people who don't know you! Talk to anybody... talk to somebody at the mall, or at the grocery store... just get into a casual conversation. Show your genuine concern with the direction the country is going in. Let them know how the high gas prices are really killing you.
When people start to hear strangers speak disapprovingly of Obama and approvingly of Romney, you'd be amazed at the psychological effect that has on them. It's like it gives them the approval to do what in their heart they may have been contemplating doing but feared social acceptance. It says to them 'other people will approve of my vote for Romney, other people will accept me.'
