My Day at the NH Polls and the Tsunami of Women Voters

Cross posted with my permission from my dKos diary.  Daily Kos links and references not edited.


I was the Clinton visibility captain for Londonderry, NH, the second busiest polling place in NH, and this diary focuses on my observations of the voters on Tuesday 1/08/2008.

My day began at 5 AM and I arrived at our single polling location shortly after 5:30.  First job was to plant about 50 signs along the drive leading to Londonderry High's Gymnasium.  Having gotten up well before other campaigns, I of course put our signs on the prime real estate up here.  The tops of plowed snow piles, the entrance corner, all along the drive and around the fenced entrance to the polls.

Those signs look pretty and make supporters feel good but that's not what won New Hampshire for Hillary.

The Un-Polled, Unregistered women of NH came out in record numbers for Hillary.  The pundits can pull their hair out all day but the answer to why the polls were wrong is simple.  

Those who were never polled, never called, never canvassed came out for Hillary. 

Londonderry
9,433 Total Votes 4214 Dem Ballots and 5219 Rep Ballots
There were over 1000 same day registrations of new voters.

Who were those new voters?

Before we get to the voters I observed I'd like to try and convey a feeling for the experience of the New Hampshire Primary and the incredible young people that come here to make history.

If you'd like to skip to the meat please do.  It's way down below.

Many of my diary entries have been Field Diaries and I invite you to read them while skipping the candidate diaries in between.

I jumped into this campaign with two feet sometime back in May.  I was already committed to Hillary when a pesky Clinton staffer named Katie Belgard somehow found me and over a series of three or four calls convinced me that my life was of no consequence in relation to helping Hillary.

Katie Belgard

Katie is typical of the staff and full-time volunteers I came to know since May.  She is a NH native and full-time college student who somehow also finds complete weekends and many nights to give to the campaign.

I've met and grown to admire many Katies since May.  Salem/Derry/Londonderry regional Director Katie Sullivan from Boston is a recent Harvard grad. who worked on the Kerry campaign, the Deval Patrick campaign and worked in the Patrick administration drafting education reform until the draw of Hillary pulled her north to New Hampshire.

Katie Sullivan rallying the troops.

And then there was my own town of Londonderry organizer Kate Stoltenberg.  Yes, it sometimes got confusing working for Team Katie but it never got boring.  Stoltenberg is one of those energizer bunnies who can canvass a whole small town in a morning and make a few hundred phone calls in the afternoon and evening.

Jeremy and Kate S.

Team Katie also had it's soldiers.  Arthur Lewis and Jeremy Lerman.  These guys make more phone calls in an hour than I make in a month.  They also get up at sunrise to install 4x8 signs and of course knock on so many doors their knuckles are callused.

Also impressive is the sheer numbers of out of staters who come here on their own dime to help a candidate.  All candidates have them and they should all be proud of what they do.

These were just some of the people in the Salem office, those I worked with every weekend and many nights.  

Friday January 4th through Primary Tuesday

We had a series of kick off meeting in the days preceding the final push.  I was assigned to visibility in my town and believe me, when you volunteer for a well oiled campaign you are an employee and you follow orders.  At least when you work for the team of a great manager like Katie Sullivan.  My evenings were no longer mine and weekends, what are those?

But, Friday I attended and volunteered for the State Dems at the 100 club Dinner.

All weekend and all night we canvassed, we put out thousands of signs and of course made more phone calls than I could count.  All the time keeping track of every little detail of each contact and touch.  It is an amazing experience.

Monday night I attended Hillary's last major rally in Manchester then tried to get some sleep.

The polls and the voters

The doors opened at 7 after we campaign workers had a short meeting with the moderator.  Where we could stand, where not to hang signs, who to ask for the vote tallys etc.

Part of the job of Viz Captain is to go inside and get the counts from the machines.  How many Republican ballots cast and how mant Democratic ballots.  Katie wanted this information at specific times during the day at which point I walked in said hello to my friends the poll workers, got the numbers and called them in.  I saw the lines and observed the lines with an eye towards who was voting.

But I digress.  At 7:15 Bill Clinton showed up to join us for an hour of hand shaking and picture taking.  The line to vote from 7 - 9 goes outside the building and people were enjoying just plain chatting with Bill.

I had my exciting moment when he told me one of my ideas I had presented impressed him enough that Hillary included it in her last major speech. He also signed the shoulder of my Hillary hoodie.

Yes, I'm honored and the adrenalin is still rushing from yesterday.
__________________________

We stood all day at the corner of the fence where folks walk in past the Gauntlet of signs.  We always had a team of 3 or 4 and sometimes more, but Erica was there all day saying "Good Morning" as people walked in.

 title=

Erica was the first to notice something odd

Just about every other woman would give us the thumbs up as they passed.  Understand, we heard the polls too and had convinced ourselves that we'd be losing this day.  But they not only gave us thumbs up, most of them were doing it in a shy surreptitious manner as if they didn't want their husbands to see.  This continued all day peppered with the winks and loud Go Hillary we got from many men.

Where was the Obama wave?  It arrived at noon.

At noon we got worried.  The kids had woken from their winter break deep sleep and began to arrive in droves.  It continued for about two hours then all of a sudden we were back to the normal mix of 30+ adults.  When the wave ended Erica and I both noticed like a switch had been thrown.

Inside to the lines

I was inside the building every hour or two and the first thing I noticed besides the obvious huge turnout, was the steadily growing line for same day registrations. We allow people to register on the day of the primary then go vote.  These are new young voters and older folks who have not voted before.

Londonderry had, I'll repeat.
9,433 Total Votes 4214 Dem Ballots cast and 5219 Rep Ballots cast

There were over 1000 same day registrations of new voters.  Over 10%.


  • In the morning I noticed a blend of old and young, men and women.
  • At midday the line looked like the line for a rock concert.
  • At 3 and later the line started to lean heavily towards middle aged and older men and women.  Many of whom had given me the thumbs up outside.

  • This line was so long the polls remained open almost 45 minutes late to allow the people inside the door to vote.

Unregistered voters are not polled. They are not contacted by the campaigns.  They are the Invisibles Hillary speaks of often.

The polls were wrong because they not only miss the cellphone only people, they don't poll everyone.  They don't poll the thousands of un-registered that voted on Tuesday January 8, 2008.

Which leads into why Hillary is the best candidate Democrats may ever have.

Goldberry had the same thought sometime back when she wrote about the Sisterhood of the traveling Pantsuit.

Here I'm quoting directly from a previous diary of mine which I think Tuesday has proven out.

Mary is in labor and the rethugs fear the Gender Card.

Yes, I'm here to tell you (oh no it's not PC), that this race is about gender.  If you don't want to hear my analysis then please go elsewhere rather than shooting me for something you haven't even read.

Of course, this being dKos, I'll get blasted just for my title.  I mean, why read when you can just blast away at the nasty, woman supporting hillbot who is playing that gender card thing?

Frankenoid did a great job giving us the inside scoop on Mary's labor woes.

But Mary Mother of Jesus and Virgin Wife of Joseph is not who the republican's fear.

They fear the lowly, Mary Magdalene.

They know that the day a woman is nominated for President millions upon millions upon millions of Marys will register to vote for the first time in their lives.  

We Democrats need to win.  We need to keep rethug hands off the Supreme Court, we need to end the war, we need to dump the deficit, we need to care for each other through universal health care, we need to create American jobs.

Do you agree?

I thought so.  Well, Karl Rove and his beady eyed researchers down in his computer room in hell don't want us to win.  And they figured out one very important Fact.  If ever there is a woman nominated, 1/2 of the population will go absolutely bonkers crazy with joy.

Did I mention I might get slapped around for saying sexist crap?

Sex Sex Sex.  People do it so get over it.  I'm a man.  I also know that woman are not men.  Woman think differently, look at problems differently and generally work their butts off solving the screw ups of us men.

So, in a previous diary I reported on my stripper research in Las Vegas.  The synopsis being that through a tough few nights of hard work I polled the strippers of Vegas.  I wore my Hillary button everywhere I went and girl/woman after girl came up to me to say how much they loved Hillary and the thought of a woman president was cool.  They also told me that in their job, with children and as single mothers Hillary was the only one running who understood and cared about them.

Two of them happened to mention that they registered to vote for the first time, just so they could vote for Hillary in the primary.

Now I know, strippers will say anything for $20.  But honestly, I think they were being sincere.

Women.  Left out of society women, hookers, single mothers and women like the strippers see in Hillary their chance to finally break through.  They see this not as Hillary's race, they see it as Their race.  They see it as their chance for the equal rights some still deny them.  They see it as a fight for their children and the hope of a better world under a mother's guidance.

The days and months after Hillary is nominated will see the greatest voter registration the country has ever known.  There may not be enough forms available.  The Republican men will be living in divided households and discovering the wonders of porn.

Hillary Rodham Clinton is the greatest threat the GOP has ever faced.  
She is a Woman.

I was a little off in that diary.  I thought the Tsunami of voter registrations would start once she's nominated but the Vegas experience should have given a clue.  They are registering now and same day where allowed.  The women want a woman to clean up after the boys.

Democrats.  This woman whether you like her policies or not, this woman will give us the best opportunity in generations to get the majority we need to make things right.

Let the Tsunami Begin

Tips for the Invisible Ones

by NewHampster 2008-01-10 08:46AM | 0 recs
Hell to the yeah!

Hillary sees the "invisible ones" that the CReeps tell us not to notice. Hillary speaks to the real concerns for real working women. These working women and their families are in real need of REAL CHANGE. When they say they want change, they're not talking about some esoteric concept or a "way of thinking"... They're talking about health care, jobs, better education... You know, REAL RESULTS!

That's why the "invisible ones" are turning out en masse for the one candidate who's working hard to make them visible. :-)

why ask women

how we'll vote, the pollsters just knew, and so did the pundits. We don't even need the vote anymore, they'll vote for us, not!

Re: why ask women

It's easy to understand why the media establishment doesn't want to talk about the women's vote in New Hampshire.

Imagine what would happen if women in America (a solid 54% majority of voters) ever got the idea that they have the political power to determine who runs the country.

That's a scary thought to the entrenched power base in politics and the media. Do you think that there would still be only 16% women in congressional seats?

Do you think that TV talking head positions like Russert's and Matthews' would remain an all-boys club?

by hwc 2008-01-10 09:45AM | 0 recs
Re: why ask women

Women with power is especially scary for Matthews.  There's just no excuse for his continued presence  and I can't imagine why anyone would take anything he says seriously. Every time he opens his mouth something stupid comes out.

Here's hoping that more and more women realize their power and start to make use of it.

Re:

I think NH was a good precursor of what we can expect moving forward:  A historical number of women showing up to vote for Hillary, a lot of them first-ever voters and/or unregistereds.   They are not captured by polls, but show up anyway.   I had linked to article previously from a NY-based pollster who has been following Hillary's polling history over the last decade.  He discussed the phenomenon that Hillary's polls usually undercount the true support she ends up getting in the voting booth.  In both of her NY Senate races the final polls had undercounted her true support by at least 5%.   He attributed it to several issues:  

1. First-ever voters (in Hillary's case, mostly women who had never bothered to vote) are usually not registered until right before voting day, thus they are not called by polling firms.

2. Hillary-hate/Intimidation factor.  Many people are somewhat intimidated by those around them who are very vocal about their disdain for Hillary, may not state their true preference to pollsters.  That changes, once they enter the privacy of the voting booth.  

3.  Warming-up factor.  With the preconceived notions out there about Hillary, some voters let those rub off on them.  But, as voting day draws near, a reasessment of those notions occurs, as long as Hillary has been able to communicate herself to prospective voters (as she did in New Hampshire.)   Oviously, undecideds went for Hillary, when the meme was that undecideds would be very unlikely to break late for Hillary, as she is well known.  With her, the opposite seems to be true, actually.

Goood news for down ticket races
In 2004 when I was working for ACT we spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to register young women.  I sent the young volunteers to places where young women hang out to register voters. Why?  Because women vote democratic and young women are the people least likely to be registered to vote.  
If the Clinton campaign would make a major effort to register (I am sure some one can come up with some creative ideas) women to vote it will pay off big time.  And it will pay off for all the down ticket races because women are the most likely to vote a whole democratic ticket.  
If Clinton is the nominee she is unbeatable for these reasons.

Re: Goood news for down ticket races

The Clinton people have been working on registering women to vote for four years:

www.wvwv.org

Womens Voices, Womens Vote, Emily's List, and Harold Ickes' microtargeting voter database operation are all part of the mechanism.

by hwc 2008-01-10 10:25AM | 0 recs
Most definitely!

Mollie, you're a genius! This should be our response whenever someone says, "Hillary isn't good for Dems, she'll drag us down downticket." We should point them back here, to what happened in New Hampshire this week, when so many working women of all ages turned out en masse for the one woman who's actually talking about their concerns. Contrary to the conventional Beltway "wisdom", Hillary will likely bring a tsunami of women in November to vote for her and for all the Democrats downticket. Why? Their "invisible" concerns are finally being spoken to, and they appreciate that. :-)

in October 2004

I was chatting with the receptionist in my vet's office and learned she wasn't registered. I encouraged her to make her voice heard and picked up a voter registration form for her. Then she turned around and registered as a Republican!

I was pretty annoyed to have inadvertently activated a Bush voter. But it's worth it to register young single women in large numbers, because overall, it should pay off.

a year ago I thought

Hillary could not win the general, but I have changed my view on that.

I am still concerned about a possible drag on the ticket in some states, but the Clinton supporters have convinced me that she could get a lot of new women to the polls. I saw it even in Iowa. Although she didn't win, she did turn out large numbers of people who had never caucused before.

Re: a year ago I thought

Hillary swung the female to male split in New Hampshire voting by 6 points:

2004: 54% female 46% male
2008: 57% female 43% male

Here are the splits:

Married women: 33% of the voters
Married men: 28% of the voters

Unmarried women: 22% of the voters
Unmarried men: 16% of the voters

Coupled with the increase in overall turnout, there were massive numbers of women voters turning out in New Hampshire. This despite the female candidate being trashed and written off for dead on every media report for five days before the vote.

It bears repeating. Democrats cannot win any national election without massive female turnout. Men vote overwhelmingly Republican.

by hwc 2008-01-10 12:36PM | 0 recs
Re: a year ago I thought

We haven't even gotten to states that favor women voters. The splits between male and women voters are closest in lily-white states like Iowa and NH.

As the minority populations increase, the tilt in the electorate towards women voters goes up because African American and Latino men really don't vote.

Re: a year ago I thought
I think democrats in red states who are endorsing Obama because they think Clinton is too polarizing are making a big mistake.  I think they are not thinking this through carefully.  Hillary could be the best thing that could happen to our democratic turn out and organization in red states.
 I am convinced that she will get a lot of moderate republican women's votes.  Unless Rudy is the nominee, I can not see a reason why pro-choice republican women will not vote for her and probably some women who would prefer that she is pro-life but will vote for her anyway.  Even with Rudy I think moderate republican women will have a very hard time not voting for the first woman president.
I think as people get to know here they will like her better.  The myths about her just do not stand up to the real evidence when you listen to her and look at her record.
Women in red states will come out to vote for her and it will help build new democratic organizations and HELP the 50 state strategy.

very liberal women

My mother, who turns 80 this year, is a very liberal woman who hasn't liked any of our choices. She is active in the peace movement, volunteers in prisons, is very active in local politics and is a regular poll worker. I had thought she would like Obama (she hates the money in politics and my aunt, who is working on the green party platform, likes Obama and hates Hillary), but she told me last night she is warming up to Hillary after Iowa.

I had worried earlier on when there was debate among feminists about Hillary, but I think women are getting over their doubts about her.

My Day at the NH Polls and the Tsunami of Wome

If being trashed and written off for dead on every media report for five days before the NH Primary the "best case scenario", I'd love to see your idea of a tough enviroment. Sheesh.

The only storyline voters had about Clinton going into the New Hampshire primary was whether she should drop out of the race before or after.

Re: My Day at the NH Polls and the Tsunami of Wome
No one expected Hillary to drop out after NH. This thing is going to Feb 5th and beyond.
But the demographics that helped Hillary in NH do not exist in the upcoming states in the same numbers.
If the best she can do is 47/34 among white women she will lose. She already lost the white female vote by 34/30 in Iowa. I am curious to see how the AA female vote splits in SC.

Re: My Day at the NH Polls and the Tsunami of Wome

You are not even trying to be remotely objective in your post.  Come on.  Queen back in the palace, status quo she represents?  Have you looked at her record?  If you really, truly did, you would walk away impressed (as most of us who have did) and concede that Obama's record is thin as water in comparison.   As for constituencies:  If you think that NH was Clinton's high water mark, you are sadly mistaken.  She will get strong support from women in the other states, but in addition to that she will also be able to bring along major advantages within the Hispanic community in states with strong Hispanic voter contingents, Asian community, Lesbian/Gay community, older voters (where they are heavily represented,) etc.

Re: My Day at the NH Polls and the Tsunami of Wome

Isn't it true that Obama had everything, EVERYTHING, going for him.  The heralded Iowa bounce (which was pegged at about 20% fer sure,) momentum, a fawning media, polls out the wazoo.   Yet, he did not win by th e 20% margins a lot of people predicted, instead he actually lost the thing.  If he can't win (and get his supporters out) in that environment/best case scenario......

Re: My Day at the NH Polls and the Tsunami of Wome
Hillary is the wife of a two time democratic president with all the democratic establishment behind her. Obama was born to a teenage mother and is 3 years removed from the state senate.
Put the spin aside who do you think is always going to have everything going for them.
For Obama to win by 9 points in Iowa, then almost win NH and be in the position he's in now is remarkable.

Re: My Day at the NH Polls and the Tsunami of Wome


So why does Obama close all his big contributor meetings these days?  Because all the people backing him are all powerless, poor, upright, liberal, and untainted?

I think not.

Re: My Day at the NH Polls and the Tsunami of Wome

But what about that 20% bounce that we were told was built into an Iowa win?  What about Obama's huge crowds, mojo, momentum, etc.  AND, Obama has and had virtually the ENTIRE media behind him.  Give it a rest with this "born to a teenage mother" stuff.  We are dealing in the here and now.  There was no way possible that Obama, media-fawned-over Obama, could have lost that race so close to winning Iowa.  Yet, he found a way.  That is very telling, IMO.

the yard signs

If I were a contributor to Hillary's campaign, I would question the huge expenditures on yard signs. There must have been 50 at my caucus location, and presumably at just about every other location. This diarist notes the effort to put up all those signs near one of the polling places.

Is this really a good use of resources? I am not a campaign pro, but it doesn't seem like a worthwhile investment to me. Signs in neighbors' yards have a psychological effect, but 50 signs by the polling place are just irritating.

by desmoinesdem 2008-01-10 12:16PM | 0 recs
Re: the yard signs

The signs have always bothered me too and I'm the one who put out around 500 in town and another 100 the morning of the primary.

And I now know that there is a reason and it works.

A huge percentage of voters came to the polls still undecided.  Mostly liking both Obama and Clinton.

The plain old advertising thing of impressions had the right impression this day.  I can't count how many people asked "where is the Obama campaign".

They were all out canvassing.  Hillary had twice as many out canvassing but made damn sure to cover every poll with people and signs.  Nothing was left to chance.

Re: My Day at the NH Polls and the Tsunami of Wome

i fully agree: it is inspiring to read about how hard people work for their candidates, be it Hillary, Obama, or geez even ol' wacky Ron Paul. it really is what makes this a great democracy.

that said, I also agree that Hillary supporters are especially inspirational. all the hate thrown at them by the media, the kool kidz obama club (confession: I love Obama, too), and the condescending, arrogant Naderite/Edwards types.....great to see these heroes come out and stand up despite what their self-described betters say.

sort of makes me embarrassed that I have no plans to do the same -- but, heck, I change my mind between Clinton and Obama most every day!

Thanks so much, NH.  I too believe that if she can fiht off the media long enough to make her case, she could win the general in a landslide.

I personally know a Republican neighbor who is in a Fundamentalist wingnut household, who privately told me she would vote for Hillary and never tell her husband or her pastor.

So the surreptitious thumbs up  made me smile.
