After months of spin from the presidential campaigns some hard numbers are finally in - and they're not pretty for Team Obama. So far early voting totals show the Romney campaign doing considerably better than the 2008 Republican ticket, reports The Atlantic's Molly Ball.
"An objective analysis of early turnout can provide valuable tea leaves for Election Day," Ball writes. "In many states, election officials disclose how many Democrats and Republicans have voted thus far. We don't know who they're voting for, but in most states, this alignment is a good proxy for the candidates."
