Jim Geraghty (National Review):
Take a look at Obama’s campaign stops since that first debate – almost all of them have been on college campuses:
October 4: University of Madison-Wisconsin
October 5: Cleveland State University, Ohio
October 5: George Mason University, Fairfax, Virginia
October 9: Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio
October 11: University of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida
October 17: Ohio University, Athens, Ohio
October 17: Cornell College, Mount Vernon, Iowa
October 19: George Mason University (AGAIN), Fairfax, Virginia
Obama did one event at Veterans Memorial Park in Manchester, New Hampshire, and did a rally in California.

Some might wonder if this is because only college campuses have venues large enough to accommodate a crowd coming to see the president, but we all remember the arena rallies and giant crowds in public parks from the 2008 campaign. No, the relentless focus on college campuses is no accident, and it becomes clearer once you throw in his appearance on “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart” and he’ll be appearing with Jay Leno Wednesday night. He’s aiming for the maximum turnout from a demographic that was, until 2008, among the least likely to turn out to vote.

It’s as if the Obama campaign realizes their candidate has maxed out in the high 40s, and they’re hoping they can get every last one of their 47 percent or so to turn out, and hope that Romney can’t get his high-40s total to turn out at the same rate.
