Romney internals show him up in Ohio by 1

November 5, 2012

According to a reporter in the UK:

Mitt Romney is ahead by a single percentage point in Ohio, according to internal polling data provided to MailOnline by a Republican party source.

Internal campaign polling completed last night by campaign pollster Neil Newhouse has Romney three points up in New Hampshire, two points up in Iowa and dead level in Wisconsin and – most startlingly – Pennsylvania.

Internal polls show Romney trailing in Nevada, reflected in a consensus among senior advisers that Obama will probably win the state. Early voting in Nevada has shown very heavy turnout in the Democratic stronghold of Clark County and union organisation in the state is strong.

If Romney wins Wisconsin or Pennsylvania, he doesn’t need Ohio.

    “If Romney wins Wisconsin or Pennsylvania, he doesn’t need Ohio.”

    And if Romney wins Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Ohio, then you can turn in your pundit card

    And once again, the British press scores while the American press is left in the dirt.

    Its going to be even better reading this blog and all of your delusions once Obama’s victory occurs.

      The question is: Will you, “Vern” come back and lick your wounds when Obama is defeated?

      Since you’re cowering under a name not used on this blog, it’s probably safe to assume you won’t.
      But hey, thanks for stopping by to project your wishful thinking.

      Vern, so gallup and ras who both show Romney leading are ‘delusional’?

      Wow, thanks for sharing such profound insight, troll.

    “ben Ghazi” means son of a man who has fought successfully against infidels…

    Vern = old Scottish word meaning “flaming turd”.

    Clint Eastwood: (rasping) its the night before the election and you as a 70 year old white independent need to ask yourself – are you going to vote for the darkie again?

      Is her name “Mia Love”? Sure, I’ll vote for her in a second!
      Oh….no? His name is Allen West? Sure, I’ll vote for him anytime!
      Oh…no? His name is Barack “Barry” Hussein “dog-eater” Obama? Mmmm, think I’ll pass.

        Great response, Jim!

    Is panic starting to sink into the Obama camp?
    “Keep calm and tweet on,” Ms.[Stephanie] Cutter said. “So, no matter what you hear tomorrow about turnout in Republican counties or exit polls, particularly early in the day, please remember and remind your readers that, because of early votes, we’re where we need to be to win….I don’t think there’s going to be official exits until the end of the day, but if things leak out that aren’t validated or weighted, PLEASE STAY CALM.” [emphasis added]

    For a laugh watch this related film clip of what a DNC worker will look like trying to hold back Catholic voters tomorrow;

      Cutter’s reminder would be well-heeded by Republicans as well. The exit polls often skew Democratic earlier in the day (cuz Republicans are, you know, working). This happened in 2004. Lots of discouraging exit polls, then Bush pulled away.

      • Pete in CT on November 5, 2012 at 4:19 pm

        Totally agree, but I don’t think “broken glass” republicans will be kept away from the polls. Not after, as you mention, 2004 leak of raw exit polls data and 2000 MSM call of Florida for Gore prior to the polls closing in the western part of the state.

    The interesting part of all this is the Obama total silence in the face of this…

    Not, “That’s just BS, we’re up beyond the MOE in all 3 states”, or even…
    “That’s not what we have”, or even…
    “We’re comfortable with our position”, or even…
    Axelrod’s “We’ll see who’s bluffing tomorrow”…

    Just Cutter’s “Don’t panic when you hear the exit polls tomorrow”.

    I mean, that’s always good advice for Republicans, but it’s the first time I can ever remember a Democrat using that line. Revealing? Who knows? I think it says something, though.

    • Brent on November 5, 2012 at 8:20 pm

      Don’t forget Nanzi Piglosi right before the 2010 midterms strongly predicting that the House would not only stay in dem control, but that they’d add seats. Look how that played out – worst defeat of democrats in over 70 years.

      The left is having their pre-election delusional meltdowns again. nothing new, just a lot of wilfull ignorance from the left – same story, different race.

    • E-Rock on November 5, 2012 at 8:30 pm

      I think the “Don’t panic” bit will play out in the MSM as “OMG BARRY IS MUCH FURTHER AHEAD THAN WE THOUGHT” in the middle of the afternoon.

    Putting out your internals is not usually a sign of real confidence.
