    Fox Business' Charlie Gasparino reports that some wealthy donors who have made financial commitments to the Romney campaign are reneging, and instead, opting to send their money to Republican House and Senate candidates who they see as having a better chance of winning next month.

    Probably because they're seeing the real polling that shows he's so far ahead he no longer needs their money.

    Also: damn. I was hoping they'd wait at least two more weeks before abandoning ship to try and salvage some downticket races.

    This is no big surprise. The big money boys know how the "real" polls are leaning. They know Romney and Ryan are a deadly combination for the GOP.
