Does McCain face an excitement deficit?


"For now, the numbers favor Obama: 38 percent of his supporters say the election is exciting compared with 9 percent of McCain’s. Sixty-five percent of Obama’s backers say they are hopeful about the campaign, double McCain’s, and the Democrat’s supporters are three times likelier to express pride."

Psssttt, Senator McCain---a fired-up conservative base can really help with that.
But you've got to convince them you're really WITH them--on campaign finance, on energy issues, on illegal immigration. And conservatives of all stripes need to keep pounding this point home, to the Senator and to all those in his campaign.

But I'm not sure we'll get anywhere.
