I have to say that I have gotten a bunch of automated calls this past week, but I hang up before I know whether it is Democrats or Republicans. Frankly I find them extremely annoying, and I wonder if they really help?
If it's from a known Democrat I hang up. If it's from someone that's running in a non party race (e.g., State Supreme Court or Circuit Court, etc.) I listen. In fact, one helped me to decide about a supposedly Non partisan "Independent" whom I knew nothing about running against a seated superior court judge here....ordinarily I'd have voted against the incumbent, but I found out the "Independent" is really a Demoncrat who won't admit it and has accepted donations from "amnesty for illegal aliens" Overall, if it makes the Demoncrats upset, then I AM FOR IT, PERIOD.
