I think I have been canvassed more by evangelicals (for my soul) than by politicians (for my vote). Possibly their god does not view my area as being outside the marginals; the politicians however have worked out that there is little point in canvassing anyone in my area.
This is a function of the concept of “safe seats” which is itself a function of our dysfunctional election system. This may make life easier for the parties in the short-term (it is relatively easy to determine where to put your resources), but in the long-run it increases political disengagement.
This has to be bad. There has to be some form of personal connection between “us” and those who claim to “represent us”.
