    I appreciate your gentle but persistent questioning of people would said they would vote for Gomez.  

    As I read your dialogue with the photographer, what he said about retouching photographers, etc, sounds like confirmation bias.   I anticipated that eventually he would reveal the REAL reason he's voting for Gomez.   But maybe he's as confused about his own thoughts as he was with his explanation.  

    BTW: I hear you about the travails of canvassing.   But I prefer canvassing for the face-to-face contact and ability see and hear nuances.  What really keeps me going are those people who greet me warmly as soon as I open the door because they are supporting my candidate.   And the encouragement of those whom I don't even talk with.  My favorite "Kodak" mental moment that I've saved occurred while election day GOTV canvassing in 2008. As I was walking and searching for an address, a USPS mail carrier saw me across the street and gave me a thumbs-up and a big smile and a big wave.   Lots of passersby did the same that day.
