The Obama Ground Game
I wrote before about my doubts about. Mitt Romney's ground game. President Obama has a huge lead over Romney in early voting.
Obama had a lead of 53-42 percent among the 17 percent of the surveyed registered voters who said they had already cast their vote. Like many other polls, the rolling Reuters/Ipsos poll has shown a tight race since shortly after the two candidates met for their first debate on October 3. The two met for their third and last debate on Monday and most surveyed voters said the face-off did not change their view of either candidate.Former Reagan staffer David Gergen has more bad news for Republicans. Romney's Ohio operation is a mess.
In the pivotal state of Ohio, for example, the Obama campaign has three times as many offices, often captained by experienced young people. By contrast, a major Republican figure in the state, throwing up his hands, told me that the Romney field team looked like a high school civics class.Ouch.
