Mitt Romney Closing the Gap in Ohio Polls as Romey Crowds are Surging


Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney is closing the gap in the polls in Ohio as we head into the second of three Presidential debates. As Mitt Romney draws closer, Romney has also seen his crowd get much larger and enthusiastic. The momentum is presently with Romney.

(Reuters) – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is recovering ground in the critical swing state of Ohio as he rises in the polls and crowd numbers swell after his strong debate performance last week against President Barack Obama.

Despite pundits and pollsters dismissing Romney’s chances in the state in late September, the Republican is now either tied or just barely trailing Obama in Ohio ahead of the next presidential debate on Tuesday night.

At an event with thousands of Ohioans on Friday night, Romney boasted of “a growing crescendo of enthusiasm.” He has spoken to several large audiences in Ohio this week.

“(Obama’s) campaign is about smaller and smaller things, and our campaign is about bigger and bigger crowds fighting for a bright future,” he said on Saturday.

According to the RCP averaging of polling data, Obama is only ahead of Romney by 48% to 46.3%. Of course this is based on counting a  suspect MNBC/WSJ/Marist poll that used a +10D Registered and +11D Likely polling sample to get a results of Obama +6.

      The big difference in campaign stops is Romney addresses adults where as Barry only goes to college campuses (kids). For the most part these kids have already been indoctrinated by our school systems so he is at ease with them. If you think this isn’t true then check Barry’s last month worth of stops in Ohio and look at where Moochelle will be this week in Ohio.

      I agree Bill B. I addition we have two adult bodies containing fifty year old kids in Michelle and Barry. The college kids are the group to which they relate.

      Unfortunately, as you state, these college kids are all brainwashed by the type of education they have recieved. Liberal concepts fed them in all their school years have made them unable to see the world as it really exists.

      The scary part is that they too have the right to vote.
