Let's see:

26,000 people at the rally in Wisconsin. 18,000 in Philadelphia. Full house in Wilmington yesterday. Today in Boston, much more than just a full house of  10,000 people in what AP described as  "energetic rally". AP!, or maybe they were actually even more, at least according to Deval Patrick’s campaign:

15,000 to 16,000 people came to the rally, with those not able to get into the convention hall watching on video feeds.

Tomorrow the Obamas will make a joint appearance at OSU. OFA made 1 million calls today alone! wealthy Democrats wakes up and let's not forget Bill Clinton, bringing thousands to everywhere he goes.

Polls shmolls, most of the Republicans enthusiasm "advantage" is manufactured by their dirty anonymous donors, and corrupt MSM (CNN today showed only some parts of president Obama campaigning for Deval Patrick, but showed the entire gibberish from that half term "DO YOU LOVE YOUR FREEDOMMMMMM?" empty-head). It's one big conspiracy.

With all due respect to Nate's models, there's only one model that counts: November 2nd. If we vote, we'll kick their collective ignorant ass. If not, well, we can kick only ourselves. Don't listen to me, listen to Howard Dean:

...I do think we're going to hold the House and the Senate. I'm one of a dwindling minority of people in Washington, but we always know that Washington often gets it wrong. Usually gets it wrong. Because I think at the end of the day the enthusiasm gap is dissipating.

The president's out there talking all the time about the differences between the parties. He's essentially done what he had to do, which is make this election a choice, not a referendum. If it's a choice, the Democrats are going to do OK.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
