I'm sure the Romanians will sow unrest as much as possible, and I'm sure that people will be sympathetic to them. But I don't think a serious uprising could occur without the Cullens, and I think it will take something very big for them to do that.
Politics is all about deception, maneuvering and power plays. Base primus of any coo is the spin doctors. They can look at anything and twist it to their needs. We see it all the time on Fox and CNN. Propaganda is the beginning of any war, lead by redirect that is meant to stir up emotions with truth as its first casualty. Both the Romanians and the Volturi have their roles in vampire society with long term agenda's that need to have seed sewn that will bear fruit later when they need it. The Cullens are a trip wire and also focal point of interest to be used by said spin doctors to achieve a political end now. The Cullens are not even likely to know what is being said about them and in what context. We see it all the time.
When the next big event happens in the world check out CNN, BBC Briton, SANA, Xinhua and Itar-TASS. All five of these news agencies will report on the event and likely the reports will be far different from each other. Spin Doctoring at its best. Political Science in raw form.
