Here's the lone silver lining for Mitt Romney in Peter Hamby's good, new look at his declining fortunes in Ohio.
One aspect of the Romney operation that earned praise from Republicans is the campaign's ground game, which has made more than 3 million volunteer voter contacts so far this year and knocked on 28 times as many doors in Ohio as John McCain's campaign did in 2008.
The problem for Romney? Obama's ground game seems even more organized. As Hamby notes, the president has twice the number of field offices in the state.
Speaking of lavish attention, The Washington Post has this little nugget today (h/t Kevin Robillard).
Either Obama or Vice President Biden has popped up in the Buckeye State every three weeks on average since they took office.
