Comparing headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio, it is clear that Republicans have the edge.
Fully Staffed Romney-Ryan Headquarters: There are three fully staffed Romney Victory Headquarters in Cuyahoga County–east, south and west of downtown Cleveland. On Saturday, I visited the city of Independence headquarters, an appropriately named town for a major Romney-Ryan command post.
High Republican Enthusiasm — The Ohio’s Republican state director for North East Ohio tells me that this campaign enrolled more volunteers and enjoys more excitement than 2008 or even 2004.
More than half of the 50 + volunteers on Saturday night were from out-of-state. Particularly a large group from Texas
Teams of volunteers were coming in the afternoon after working scores of precincts– Just a few miles south of downtown
The Ohio deployment is going well.
Lackluster Obama Headquarters:By coincidence in downtown Cleveland I found a “staging area” and regional Obama headquarters around 6:30 pm. Only three struggling souls were inside.
Still the poles show that this contest is within the margin of error. But, I believe those who have the will to win will elect the next President
From this anecdotal overview —our troops are bright-eyed, enthusiastic, numerous and dedicated.
