Not to mention this is September - so if our ground game has already exceeded what it was by November of 2008, that is a significant increase in effort. Not sure what the point is of coming in with the comment “we got slaughtered in 2008” - makes no sense.
Being adequately funded with competent leadership also makes a difference. The ground game was severely hampered in 2010 - fortunately more of our voters were self motivated to make for it...imagine the seats that could have been won had the ground effort also been in full force.
ROmney is an excellent manager of large scale operations. If he beats the prince it will be with his ground game and I believe Romney is equipped to do just that.
