And the news is that the turnout isn’t just low. It’s really low.

Understandably, the McCain campaign thinks this doesn’t bode well for their candidate, and they’re already spinning…

Senior Adviser Steve Schmidt strolled back into the press section of their charter plane en route from Traverse City to Yspilanti to start framing potential results. […]

Predictably, Schmidt said the stakes were enormous for Romney here.

Regarding his own candidate, Schmidt said it wouldn’t have a lot of impact either way.

“I think that if we win in Michigan, we get a little bit of a bump and I think that if we lose, we take, maybe, a quarter step back, but i don’t think it’s a big deal any way,” Schmidt argued.

Spin, spin, spineroo!
