LOL - at early voting today in West Palm Beach - Romney tent packed up early


They packed up right around 6. The early voting line cuts off at 7 PM. I finally got to vote around 9, and the line behind me is going to take at least another 2 hours. The Obama tent was still there.

One of the guys said, while packing up, "We're not getting paid here, we're just volunteers." To be honest, there wasn't much use of them being there, the line was 99% Democratic.

The Obama volunteers were still there handing out fliers and water. I'm sure they'll be there until the last person votes.

10. See, they bought all those lies. Wish she'd changed her vote. Too late, probably. Good for you.

3. This is a good example of the difference in ground game

Paid staffers need to be there encouraging, cheering, on and supporting the volunteers.

12. Thanks for the report, TroubleMan.. So how does that work..

the Campaign tents have to be a number of yards from the polling place? And, how long did you wait in line?

17. Yes, book, tablet, phone. Just turn off the phone when you go in.

I had an iphone for me and a kindle fire for my daughter.
