    The Received Wisdom seems to be that these people

    1) will decide this election
    2) think with their emotions

    So ... yeah ... explaining away the defeat in Wisconsin with a simple, easy to grasp, (if not 100% statistically accurate and provable)  assertion -- probably IS "good propaganda".

    EXCEPT THAT:  Democrats "lose points" when they tell lies ... whereas Republicans do not.

    So ... it's probably not the most useful thing in the world (from the point of view of an Obama victory in in November) to give the Romney Camp an "even your own guys say so" public debunking to our own "imperfectly true" assertions.
