Poor Republican Turnout

In foreshadowing the depressed Republican in November, the Republican Convention has had low turnout:

In stark contrast to the pep rally-like Democratic Party convention in Buffalo, candidates at the Republican Party's gathering Wednesday delivered their messages to a remarkably subdued crowd, where empty seats, a disappearing act by several of the party's biggest names and an internecine battle for control of the party were in full display.

Republican leaders and candidates battled a decided air of apathy among many delegates - indeed, only 265 of 446 delegates even showed up - to encourage them to work hard to elect the party's statewide group of candidates.
