Presidential candidates spent Monday trying to engage every last voter before Super Tuesday and so did their Long Island volunteers.
As Sens. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y), Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.) crisscrossed the Northeast, their local organizers stood outside supermarkets, coffee shops and train stations. With flyers in hand, the foot soldiers reminded residents to vote and touted their candidates? positions and policies.
The volunteers on the ground say never underestimate the power of pounding the pavement. On Tuesday many of them will be working the phones and returning to areas with heavy foot traffic.
According to the latest Quinnipiac University poll, Obama is chipping away at Clinton's lead in New York, but remains behind. On the Republican side, McCain continues to pull ahead of Gov. Mitt Romney (R-Mass.) in New York.
