Commenting on President Obama's appearance today in Madison, Jeff Wagner says if he doesn't draw "at least 20,000 people" it'll be a flop.
Meanwhile, Charlie Sykes estimated attendance could hit 30,000.
Which is interesting, given that The One attracted a mere 17,000 people in Madison in 2008 a week before the Madison primary.
It seems odd that they're expecting attendance to be higher this time around -- particularly as they love to crow about his "cratering" approval numbers (still higher than Reagan's at a similar point in their presidencies, but whatevs).
Do Wagner and Sykes think Obama is more popular than the polls suggest? Because it's hard to believe such outstanding tribunes of the public interest would set ludicrously high thresholds for attendance "success" so they can decry the rally as a failure tomorrow. They wouldn't be that dishonest, would they?
