If the size of rally crowds are any indication of things to come, the Obama campaign is in for a shock. Just compare the size of the crowds at campaign rallies in North Carolina. On one hand is an event with Vice President Joe Biden. On the other is GOP vice presidential selection Paul Ryan.
Vice President Joe Biden spoke before a crowd of 660 people in Durham, N.C., at the Durham Armory during a campaign stop for President Barack Obama on Monday.
Biden's appearance before a comparatively meager crowd came a day after the newly formed Republican ticket -- presidential candidate Mitt Romney and running mate Paul Ryan -- rallied a crowd of over 10,000 in High Point, N.C., about an hour away, and a crowd of approximately 4,700 people in Mooresville, N.C., about two-and-a-half hours away.
North Carolina is a key state in this election cycle. It went for Bush in 2004, but Obama in 2008. Which campaign do you think has the momentum now?
