Obama and his allied groups aren’t keeping pace with Romney and the Republican fundraising machine, and that places more pressure on the president to solicit huge sums himself. And the Supreme Court ruling that saved Obama’s signature health care initiative last week didn’t change the fact that most Americans don’t like the law.
