Romney Downplays Early Vote While Seeking It

"Facing a massive early voting deficit less than two weeks out from election day, the Romney campaign is projecting a mixed message as the candidate works to keep alive his claim to momentum," McKay Coppins reports.

"In memos and press gaggles, Republicans insist they're so far behind by strategic choice -- focusing their efforts on helping unlikely voters get to the polls now, and leaving their enthusiastic base to fend for themselves on November 6."

"But as Mitt Romney and Senator Rob Portman zig-zagged across Ohio Thursday, they repeatedly made a point of pleading for early votes from the cheering partisans who gathered at their rallies -- the very group the campaign says they're not trying to get to the polls."
