I sat in on the "Watch Party" at a building half way across campus with ~330 other people. Got to see and listen to Snyder, Schuette (AG), Ruth Johnson (SOS) and Randy Richardville (Senate Majority Leader). Patterson walked in but didn't say anything.
Everybody in the banquet rooms got to be the "Ask The Audience" lifeline with little hand voting remotes. So when you see the CNBC polling graphic they used....yeah, your welcome for those stats.
From what I understand, only 60 students and 10 faculty were in in the audience. A friend of mine (with a full curly shoulder length head of hair) got to be part of the production staff and was the stand in for Jim Cramer before he got on to do Mad Money. Cramer wasn't too pleased about it.
