Fox News dice que en conversaciones privadas los demócratas están manifestando su preocupación por la desventaja en fondos:
Senior Democratic sources say that in closed-door meetings with campaign donors here at the convention, top Obama campaign officials like campaign manager Jim Messina are expressing increasing alarm over the fact that Republican Mitt Romney raised $100 million in the month of August alone, further expanding his cash edge.
The Democratic sources tell Fox News the Obama team is privately saying they believe the final days of the presidential race are now shaping up as a dramatic battle between money and demographics, with President Obama's advisers fearful that Romney will use his war chest to unleash a bombardment of television ads and ground game to turn out more white, working-class voters.
Nevertheless, the Obama team is saying in these private meetings they are still confident that they can win by exploiting their demographic edge with Hispanic, African-American and female voters, among others. As a result, the president's Thursday night acceptance speech is expected to be full of direct appeals to these voters.
(...) The fundraising questions come as campaign officials confirm a Washington Post report that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, the former White House chief of staff, is stepping down from his honorary role as a co-chairman of the Obama campaign so that he can help juice fundraising by outside Democratic Super PACs.
