Dee Dee Myers wasn't the first guest on NOW to proclaim that the 2012 presidential race is going to get downright "nasty."But this morning's New York Times reports that Republican's are calling upon the Romney campaign to go positive, finding the former Massachusetts governor's tone combative and troublesome.  The idea: don't beat up on the President, and instead offer up your vision for America.It's a tricky issue.  Many Republican voters are angry, and by engaging them Romney ensures donations, voter turnout, and support. read more

A Mitt Romney campaign announcement declaring its latest fundraising figures raised a few eyebrows on our team -- not because of the amount of money that was raised, but rather because of how the campaign characterized its contributors. The press release highlighted that "84% Of All Donations Received Through The End Of March Were $250 Or Less," which seems to suggest a groundswell of grassroots support for the former governor. While the percentage the campaign cites is correct, it doesn't illustrate the role small donors play in the campaign's overall fundraising. read more
