On the other side of the political spectrum, the Progressive Turnout Project is opening an office in Manchester to serve as a base for canvassing in Manchester, Nashua and Concord. The project, a political action committee, aims to turn out Democratic voters who don’t always make it to the polls, and is opening offices in 17 states with competitive Senate races. Their planned canvassing is of the in-person, door-to-door variety.
Will Democrats open their doors? A University of New Hampshire Survey Center panel published Wednesday found people who identified themselves as Republicans were more likely to say they were comfortable going out to restaurants and big events than self-identified Democrats.
“Majorities of Republicans say they are currently comfortable going to large-scale athletic competitions, political rallies, and concerts, while nearly half of Democrats say they will not be comfortable going to these events until 2021 at the earliest,” the survey’s introduction reads.
