McCain Outdraws Romney

DERRY/PETERBOROUGH, NH — Earlier today I attended townhall meetings held by Mitt Romney and John McCain, and McCain by far had the larger and more enthusiastic crowd.

In Derry this morning, Romney spoke at a school to a crowd of maybe 200, some people were standing along the walls, but there were also empty chairs. As he went through a “To Do List” once elected, the crowd applauded, but it was rather subdued–and some people walked out during the question and answer session.

By contrast, in Peterborough a few hours later, McCain addressed a crowd of about 600–there were more people who wanted to get in, but the fire marshall had to shut people out. The audience was much more energized, and confetti shot out of air cannons at the conclusion of the event gave it a celebratory feel.

The Romney event was at 8:45 in the morning and the McCain event was at noon, so take it for what it’s worth.

Meanwhile, a just released Concord Monitor poll has McCain up 6 points–with Obama holding a slim one point advantage over Clinton.
