The Romney campaign and conservative groups like Crossroads GPS have pulled TV ads in Michigan, Romney’s home state, according to the Detroit News.
Nor are the campaign and super PACs running advertising in Pennsylvania, after unleashing a barrage there over the past five months.
This means that Republican internal polling is probably worse than the polling we've seen so far for those two states and Republicans think they're hopeless. But this isn't the out-and-out good news that McCain pulling out of Michigan was in October of 2008. In fact, the bad news is pretty bad: It means they're just going to spend that much more in Ohio and Florida.
