Why Dean Will Crush Bush

That's the title of this diary entry at Kos, but it's a compelling breakdown of the location of Dean "Meetup" members in swing states across the country.

As the post notes, Dean already has thousands of activists lined up to organize on his behalf in Florida, Ohio, Missouri, Arizona, Colorado and other key states.

This election year won't be remembered for compelling TV ads and such-- it will be remembered for hand-to-hand combat organizing across the country and Dean has already marshalled an army that will only swell if he wins the nomination and many Dems sitting on the sidelines flock to join the campaign against Bush.

Add in the unions mobilizing across the country and you can forget the polls-- don't even think that you know how people will vote until their neighbors knock on their door. Nothing moves votes more than personal outreach by friends, neighbors and coworkers.
