Nevertheless, volunteers from all over the country were there, dutifully calling Granite Staters and urging them to vote tomorrow. It was clear that his supporters truly love and admire him.
I also got to overhear some campaign volunteers talk about their day going door-to-door for Romney. Apparently, they both accidentally ventured into Massachusetts. Not good.
But they also both agreed that they had spent the entire day campaigning without so much as seeing a single McCain flier or pamphlet. Romney has hundreds of volunteers making calls and going door-to-door, McCain probably has a skeleton operation.
Organization wasn't enough to win Iowa for Romney, but then again, he was competing against an organized Evangelical movement. Will organization be the difference-maker in New Hampshire?
Update: I've spoken to some folks, and it was inaccurate to describe McCain's operation up here as a "skeleton" operation. In fact, there are hundreds of volunteers working for him. Still, there is no doubt that Romeny's strength is his organization, while McCain's strength is his maverick image -- as well as the many Independent voters who may cast their ballots for him today. The Independents are his version of Huckabee's Evangelicals...
