TAMPA, Fla. — As the presidential campaign switches to Charlotte, N.C., next week for the Democratic convention, political observers, party loyalists and industry officials said Republicans and Mitt Romney at least played well to their base at their convention here, while it remains to be seen how successful they were in swaying undecided voters.
Over the course of the week, Republicans focused on the economy, reducing the deficit and balancing the budget, criticizing President Obama’s signature issues of health care and stimulus programs, repealing burdensome regulations and championing women’s issues.
