    that have been shown on tv, he's drawing much smaller crowds than Ryan. What we have here is the Palin effect. Ryan is drawing huge crowds while Willard is drawing hardly anyone.

    This last one, in Miami, where he was outside was maybe 13 people deep before the tv camera section was roped in. Bad sign. Usually, the cameras are in the back and you can usually see 100's right. When you have a small crowd, you bring those cameras in as close as possible to make it seem bigger without showing any holes in the crowd. Those camera shots in Miami were very tight. I think he has more people BEHIND him than in front of him.

      a white Democrat pre Clinton. Since then all the Dems are ruthlessly excoriated through their term such that the Republican has a very high floor. Though it doesn't look like it for most pollsters, Romney could easily still win this election with higher negatives than positives. And it does look like it to one reputable pollster.

      Are the boys and girls on the bus starting to say this?  I have not heard it in the reports I read and listen to.  Perhaps the Ohio bus tour will be the moment when the wheels literally come off the Romney campaign bus.

      But the 60 Minutes snippet released last night shows a more substantial crowd than it first appeared to me.Diary link with video

      Still...nothing to write home about. If there were newsworthy crowds, we'd be hearing all about it from the MSM
