As I write this, lines are forming at the downtown Barack Obama headquarters for free tickets to this Sunday’s Dave Matthews Band concert in Bloomington.
It’s nothing new to see performers stumping for candidates. My question, though, is whether or not you think the strategy works. Are those claiming the stubs more likely to vote for Obama than they were pre-concert? And have you ever, honestly, been swayed to a candidate or cause because of the efforts of a musician?
