That CBS article has some insight into the current mood, but also a lot of bullshit about the "enthusiasm" for Romney and their "great internals" which are horseshit.

If anyone reading this thread should happen to have some shred of sympathy for Mrs. Romney, please remember that she went out of her way to sign a petition asking Massachusetts to amend its constitution to make same-sex marriage illegal. She also signed a petition asking that gay people not be allowed to have civil unions or even domestic partnership benefits like hospital visitation.

When she does too much activity on the campaign trail, her multiple sclerosis acts up and makes her weak and frail.
She was explaining this to one of the anchors on one of the morning shows - can't remember which.
You could see one of Ann's episodes of poor health during the first or second debate. It showed in her face.
She looked to be really hurting health-wise.
Yesterday, she had to stand behind Mitt during his entire speech - standing during an entire speech is so unnecessary and uncalled for.

If ever someone were just not cut out to be a First Lady, it is Ann Romney. And not just because of her health, either... temperamentally she just isn't suited to it. The people of Massachusetts hated her as First Lady of their state.
To be an effective First Lady, you either have to be tough (e.g. Nancy Reagan, Hillary, Michelle Obama). Delicate flowers like Ann tend not to do so well in the role.

He stammered 'Cheese!' just before her clothes caught flame and fell to the floor, revealing her harshly otherworldly splendor.

CLEVELAND -- Reporters who have traveled with Mitt Romney's campaign for the last few days asked Romney adviser Kevin Madden earlier whether Ann Romney is feeling OK.
Many reporters who observed Ann Romney said she looked weak and unsteady.
Beth Myers, a longtime close confidante and adviser to Romney, came back to reporters on the plane before taking off from Cleveland and dismissed the concerns.
"She's great. She's feeling fine," Myers said.

If Lady Ann looks so bad reporters who don't get a shit about her are asking about it, it sounds like they're saying, "We care about her more than Romney does, and we don't even like her that much."
What is Romney trying to do, finish her off? Seriously, it's probably a serious case of Mormon male entitlement. MS sufferers are told not to physically wear themselves out - if they are in remission, exhaustion can bring it back. At that point, anything can happen, including a rapid decline. Romney is literally gambling her life.
Somehow it's always been apparent his family came last to him and I don't like Ann, but that doesn't mean I want to see her flogged in her harness until she drops dead.

Want to know what doomed Romney? IMO, he's been lying and playing the race card for this whole campaign, and the mainstream media gave him a free pass, but what really killed him was two things.
First, that Biggest Lie of All, the Jeep lie. When the head guys at both Chrysler & GM both say you're wrong and stop lying and scaring people, and you double down and put that ad on TV and just keep running it, that pissed the people in Ohioh off.
That was a big deal. It showed his character flaws in a way few other things have. Then, the whole FEMA discussion while Hurricane Sandy was smashing the shit out of the East Coast. That was the final nail in his coffin.
Yes the 47% thing hurt him. The refusal to show his tax returns hurt him, the fact that he refused to speak to the press for almost a month now, hurt him, because the traveling press corp gets really petty and takes that shit personal.
But the two main things were the Jeep lie and the FEMA comments. And it was the journalists, I believe, who broke the FEMA story and resurrected his comments.
