24. When Romney/Ryan

start drawing somewhere close to the kind of crowds- not just filled with teabaggers- that President Obama drew in 2008 (and typically draws whenever he's out on the trail), I'll maybe kind of start to believe that they may have a chance to win. Romney may have gobs and gobs of money at his disposal but President Obama has a better ground game. Romney can blanket the airwaves with thousands of negative ads attacking President Obama but what can he say about President Obama that hasn't already been screamed at the top of teabagger/Fox News lungs since 2009? They've thrown everything AND the kitchen sink at President Obama and most people still like him even if they are slightly worried about the economy and jobs (which President Obama has little control over, particularly with the Republicans obstructing anything that might help). The only thing that I think that we need to really worry about is getting people to the polls (which Romney's made a little easier with Ryan on the ticket) and making sure our voters can vote. If we can minimize voter suppression/disenfranchisement, I think that we'll do o.k.
