The Parallel Campaign

Rick Klein: "The presidential race has been essentially tied for an uncommon length of time. No dynamic -- not glum economic news, not a special election loss, not a series of off-message surrogates -- has been able to shake that."

"But over the last two months, even as national polls have shown little movement in the race, something different has been happening in the battleground states. It's as if there's a parallel campaign in the states that are likely to determine the presidency, one with its own rhythms and realities."

"In those states, President Obama has been pulling ahead. The gaps aren't huge, but taken together, the numbers strongly suggest that Democrats' relentless attacks on Mitt Romney's business record at Bain Capital have been taking a toll."
