Watching the so-called "rallies" for Romney and Gingrich, and knowing how unlikeable these guys are, I just have to wonder: Who actually gets off the couch and goes to these campaign events? I know that these guys are spending a shitload on tv ads, but is it possible that they're spending another significant chunk on hiring actors to show up to their events and pretend to be supporters? I'm not kidding, here. I just have a hard time imagining anyone sincerely, actually straining to touch Mitt's hand or get a picture with Newt. Any thoughts or info on this would be welcome and enlightening. Thanks.
