I text-banked for Kate Brown last night and found it the least stressful form of political outreach yet. Far higher number of engagements (positve and negative) than phone-banking. Also, weirdly the people that were hostile replied in a much more civil manner if I replied with something like "OK I appreciate that we see things differently. Thanks for being a voter".
