    it doesn't do you any good to win a primary, only to be followed into the general by a perception of negative campaigning. Obama in particular is well set up to be the positive one.

    I mean, look, if my opponent was Newt Gingrich, I'd run a shitload of attack ads too. But "diminishing returns" is exactly right. There has to be some sort of absolute maximum amount of times you can run attack ads before voters start getting angry at the ads themselves.

    Team Obama is building all of their GOTV machinery right now, while the Rs are still lobbing bombs at each other. The last thing Romney needs is a backlash against negative campaigning.
