The Republicans offer a threefold mantra on why you should believe that the Stench (Romney) will win: 1) the polls are all wrong; (2) the undecideds always break in great numbers for the non-incumbant; and (3) his voters are really enthusiastic.
This diary addresses number 3.
There’s so much secret money in conservative politics that even volunteers are getting paid — and paid well.politico: Secret money funds GOP door-knockers
Grassroots activists who used to knock on doors and make phone calls for free are the latest beneficiaries of the historic spending spree to defeat President Barack Obama and elect GOP lawmakers.
Deep-pocketed nonprofit groups — funded by unlimited, and mostly undisclosed, contributions — are offering canvassers and phone bankers wages upwards of $15 an hour and dangling perks such as performances by 3 Doors Down, drawings to win iPads and the chance to stay in a “posh hotel,” POLITICO has learned.
The article goes on to suggest the "privatization" of the GOTV effort may be the way to victory for Romney, but to me it shows incredible weakness. OFA has tens of thousands volunteering because they believe in the cause. I'll take that any day over paid employees.
So much for Republican "enthusiasm."
