I live in Warren County and I see much less enthusiasm on both sides. We have some signs here, but it’s nowhere near the level it was in 2004 for Bush or 2008 for Palin. And this is 70% GOP area. Of course it’s Romney so we won’t get near the broken glass GOP effect. But I can easily see that Obama has the same issue.
So it’s probably going to come down to who has the enthusiasm edge. Kind of up in the air right now, but if I had to bet my own money, I’d put it on Romney. But I’d hedge.
I grew up in Warren County - Mason - and I still have family there. I would agree with what you said. Definitely a GOP county - but whenever I go up to visit, I don’t see too much enthusiasm, either way.
