Obama and Romney: Voter Contact

Previous posts have discussed the president's potential advantage in the ground game. (Karl Rove, however, notes that the Democratic edge failed to materialize in Wisconsin.) At The Washington Post, Aaron Blake writes:
Democrats are winning at least one key aspect of the 2012 campaign: voter contact.
Some Republicans are starting to fret a little bit about their ground game and a new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows that fear is at least somewhat justified.
According to the poll, 20 percent of registered voters say they have been contacted by the Obama campaign, compared to 13 percent who say they have been contacted by Mitt Romney’s campaign.
