Ohio US Senator Rob Portman is considered to be near the top of Mitt Romney’s short list for vice president, but even if he is not selected, he will be a valuable asset in the Senate.

One of my biggest worries is the parallels some have drawn between Mitt Romney and John Kerry. This article details how another parallel between the two men has developed… their inability to respond to attacks. That said, the article has a pretty strong factual inaccuracy in it. There is little to no evidence of the Bain attacks actually moving the polls one way or another.Share on Facebook
Romney’s side has been able to take in more money than Obama’s during the last two months as both men raise money jointly with their political parties, which can take in larger donations than the candidate committees alone.
The difference is that Obama can directly control his money, while Romney must rely more on party leaders.
I would take issue with the notion that the race has been tightening. Instead, once you remove the statistical noise from the polls, the trajectory looksroughly flat based on our analysis. Mr. Obama has maintained a narrow, but fairly consistent, lead of about 2 points over perhaps the last six to eight weeks.Share on Facebook
