I have now worked two shifts at the State Fair booth, and will also work today and Friday from 9 to noon. If you're at the State Fair, drop by the commercial building and say hi.
When we're in the booth, we're obligated to be "candidate neutral," of course. We can't suggest that one Democrat is better than another, with a primary coming up in less than 5 months. However, I can tell you that in my 7½ hours of working the booth and talking with voters, Bernie Sanders is WAY more popular than Hillary among the fairgoers. Everybody wants to talk about Bernie. Also Roy Cooper is very popular.
However, we apparently had an unfortunate incident last Friday night. A Bernie supporter named Michael Flaherty was SELLING Bernie gear from the NCDP booth. I was at the fair with my family last night and stopped by the booth, and a young lady working there said she had been there Friday night and told him what he was doing was wrong, but "maybe I wasn't forceful enough".
That's an appalling breach of ethics. Who got the money? Why would anyone think that was OK? Yowza!
On the whole, though, working the State Fair booth is a lot of fun. I love talking to Democrats!
