Jeff Kaufmann: When I talk about intensity, I’m talking about, we’re now getting about 100 phone calls and hour into RPI (Republican Party of Iowa)… To put that into perspective, we get usually 5 or 6 an hour normally. This is beyond the pale… A lot of Democrats and Independents are asking about changing their vote to Republican. The Secretary of State’s report last week indicated over 3,000 people have done that already. I think we’re going to see a little bit of a surge that way.
Kuafmann credited the Trump and Rand Paul campaigns for this surge in new GOP voters.
