    Have read that they are having trouble busing in enough students and folks from Black Churches (gay marriage issue?) to fill the stadium like they did in 2008. So they are going to move the speech to a much smaller venue and spin it as being whether related:

    In other news, Romney received a 1% bump from the RNC convention. My question is, does that include the 3% margin for error?

    I read in a few places that they've been handing out free tickets all over the place, in hopes of trying to fill the joint. Look, the fan fare isn't what it was in 2008. It's not even close. This election is a dead heat between two candidates no one really wants to see elected. People don't want Obama cuz they don't like where he's taking us, nor the job he's done. They don't want Romney cuz they see him as a zillionaire vulture capitalist who's changed positions with the weather. In the end, this election will be decided in the final days of the campaign.

    Just a guess, but I'd wager that 70,000 people might have stood out in the rain in 2008 to hear Obama speak. It just happens to be 2012.

    No real effect on the election; it just tells us what we already know.

    I hope the 20,000 seat venue has wider seats.

    What a bunch of fat ##### at the DNC tonight.

    I took offense at the "fat**ed" comment and posted a pic of an overweight Republican but immediately had second thoughts.

    I mean, I thought to myself, "You're better than that," realized I did not have to retaliate in kind and quickly went back and removed it.

    From the 74K stadium to the 20K venue because of the threat of clouds.

    Mark this down. Watch as the state run media then comment on how packed the stadium is with "thousands gathering outside the stadium to get in".
    never mentioning how tickets were being passed out like hooker pamphlets on the strip in Vegas.

    They couldn't gather a crowd even with the promise of a concert. Wow.

    Only a 30% chance of storms early dropping to 0% by 10pm as per intellicast.

    Spin away dems.

    Without a link I can't guess to the validity of this statement.

    I did do some checking on my own and found different percentages on all of them.
