Philly Weekly endorsed Nutter in today's paper, which means the dreaded media has almost completely coalesced around the former Councilman. They used a photoshopped picture of the former Mixmaster Mike on the cover.
"I think the voters must be thrilled beyond their wildest imaginations to have such a cool person running for mayor," he said of PW's cover shot. "I’m looking forward to more coolness in Philadelphia."
That's a pretty dorky answer about coolness, if we do say so. If anything, Nutter's cornered the market on making dorky cool. Even if he loses, that could be his lasting effect on Philadelphia.
While he completely dominated Chaka Fattah today in the "Banner-holding Volunteers at Reading Terminal Market" category, we should see how strong Nutter's volunteer base really is when he holds a 5:45 p.m. rally at the Convention Center tomorrow.
That's big heading into Election Day as so much of the support in today's poll is considered "soft" and change is possible.
