  •  How much does a candidate visit move polls? (0+ / 0-)

    or get actual votes?  I keep reading that conventional wisdom is that the side with the superior ground game can make up 2 points in an election if their ground game really is much better than the opponent.  (there are debates as to whether Obama really has a better ground game but that is not germane to my comment)

    If Obama goes to OH or WI or GA - his remarks will be covered on CNN no matter what (GA may get more coverage because it could be seen as putting a state in play).  Similar to if he goes to Phoenix or Billings.  But what is the actual benefit?

    Most video games will move a candidate up based on where he/she campaigns, but how much of that is because the game needs to give you something to do, vs actual movement?
