Different states, different gaps in the ground game

One of the more interesting elements in the head to head ground game is that the McCain campaign has left large portions of its ground effort to state parties.

In some past battlegrounds like Ohio and Florida, the framework and volunteers were more or less still in place from 2004 so the gap in ground game may not be as great, but when it comes to the newer "big map" states, Virginia, North Dakota, Indiana, Colorado, or Georgia as examples, the local GOP doesn't have that 2004 framework to fall back on. Because no one spent the time to build top level voter lists and databases in these states, I would guess the gap in ground game might be more noticeable there.
