A recent poll says that 58% of responders would be okay with a political candidate knocking on their door to talk about politics, Only 24% of respondents said that they would feel more comfortable if the candidate was wearing a mask, and 26% said that their view of the candidates would change a candidate wore a mask. The poll was done by American Majority, a conservative organization that provides political training to aid the promotion of liberty.
“American voters like to see political candidates up close and personal. They like kicking the tires and looking under the hood, if you will, of potential elected officials, and on the flip side of that, candidates want to look potential voters in the eye and shake their hands to gain their trust and votes,” said the Chief of Staff of American Majority, Lonny Leitner.
When asked to give their reasoning for their answers, 26% of responders said that they wanted to talk to candidates and 32% said that they were not afraid to open their door and talk. Nearly a quarter of respondents, 26%, reported that they had not answered their door at all during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The number of people who are comfortable with a political door visit jumps up 9% after the summer ends.
