It is pretty strange, given that every single thing Obama does gets criticized, that Romney isn't doing better. But I think it's not just his own failures - spectacular as they are - but the party's as a whole. Republicans are 89% white people. That alone should tell you something about their focus and priorities.

That's because anything coming directly from a campaign gets special preference as far as costs, but anything outside (like, say, an ad from a Super PAC) gets no special privilege. Since more of Romney's support is coming Super PACs he's getting the worse deal even though he might have more money.
