Weekly metrics report: MDP coordinated campaign

by: Eric B.

Sat Jun 14, 2014 at 09:33:34 AM EDT

Last week I shared numbers being circulated by Lon Johnson as the MDP's coordinated campaign ramped up. There seemed to be some interest here in the post, and obviously with the person who sent them along, because there were comments and the latest report arrived yet again in Ye Olde Inbox. Here's a summary:

To date, 2,282 volunteers have been recruited to work 6,290 shifts. 105,599 recruitment calls made with 13,406 people contacted.

To date, out of 332 canvassing shift, 13,509 knocks made (I'd say doors, but I assume it's not unique doors with some duplicates) with 2,716 contacts made.

To date, 1,776 people have been contacted by phone out of 15,636 dials on 237 shifts.

Whenever people ask about this year's election, I always beg off of making predictions precisely because of this. In a year where everyone was doing the same thing they'd done the previous cycle and the cycle before that, you can make predictions accordingly. When someone does something different, it's a matter of waiting to see whether that different action translates into results. That's a matter for Election Day.

Update! ... Forgot to add a few things. The party has 62 staffers working ot of nine offices: Three in Detroit, one in Sterling Heights, one in Southfield, one in Dearborn, one in Flint, one in Pontiac and one in Grand Rapids. Three additional offices will open this week: Ann Arbor, Lansing and Eastpointe. The goal is 160 staffers working out of 25 offices.
