ROMNEY CAMPAIGN INTERNAL POLL HAS HIM UP BY POINT IN OHIO, TIED IN WISC. & PA. Posted on November 5, 2012

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is ahead of his opponent by one point in Ohio (18 electoral votes [EVs]) and is all tied up in Pennsylvania (20 EVs) and Wisconsin (10 EVs), according to internal polling data provided to Toby Harden of MailOnline by a Republican source.

“Internal campaign polling completed last night by campaign pollster Neil Newhouse has Romney three points up in New Hampshire [4 EVs], two points up in Iowa and dead level in Wisconsin and – most startlingly – Pennsylvania,” Harden reports.

“If the Romney campaign’s internal numbers are correct — and nearly all independent pollsters have come up with a picture much more favourable for Obama — then the former Massachusetts governor will almost certainly be elected 45th U.S. President,” he adds.

As of this writing, most polls show President Obama with an edge in Nevada (6 EVs) and early voting data shows he will most like carry the state.

“Romney is to campaign in Cleveland, Ohio and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on election day, reflecting the tightness of the race in Ohio and the tantalising prospect of success in Pennsylvania, which has not gone Republican in a presidential campaign for 24 years,” the MailOnline report continues.

I hope he is bluffing to throw the cheaters off.

If he is only up by 1 he’s screwed.

Romney is up way more than 1 in Ohio..no way do his “internal” pollsters start spewing what their polls are telling them. This is just a way to get out the vote, make Obama believe its closer then what it seems

GET PUMPED EVERYONE! DON’T LET THEM DO THIS!

They tried to call it for Gore. They tried to call it for Kerry. They figured out their mistake. Instead of calling it early they need to convince people it’s over before it;s begun! Don’t buy their bs polls! Look at the evidence around you! All the enthusiasm and momentum are behind Republicans!

Rove predicted a McCain loss and earned scorn, but he was honest. I think Rove has a pretty good handle on this. Now if the Bradley effect takes place then it may not be as long an evening as Rove predicted! I think Romney has better internals than McCain ever did. If I was Obama I would be worried because he can’t get past 50%, even with + 8 Democrats!

The moment I heard of this “internal” poll I thought to myself “The Romney people are NOT stupid” They are not going to come out and say that Romney is up 1 point in Ohio..they are playing mind games with Obama and his minions in the media..they have been playing these mind games for months. Romney’s people are laughing behind the scenes they know that Romney is going to win. Just look at the body language, look at Obama, and look at Romney..who looks cool as a cucumber and who looks like he is about to take a massive dump

The Bradley effect never really materialized in 2008, but I believe there may be another factor at play here which is being overlooked. I call it the fear factor.

If I'm a union worker and somebody I don't know calls my telephone and asked me to take a political survey, do I dare reveal that I'm not on board with Obama?

Likewise, if I live in Madison Wisconsin, and a total stranger calls me up to ask about my political leanings – I will probably lie my butt off in order to avoid possible repercussions

I believe that the average American understands just how viciously deranged most liberals are. That being the case, I believe that the polls are very much out of alignment with reality.

I predict that we are going to see bigger numbers for Romney then what even the most promising polls indicate.

I’ve been looking at DU. Their pucker factor is going up by the hour on the eve of the election. More than few a vanities popping up with much concern. They are not so confident as they were 24 hours ago slurping up Nate Silver and PPP polls. ;-)

One point in OH doesn't thrill me. No room for error, and plenty of room for cheating.

Ditto the tied poll in PA. We weren't expecting PA, but if we get it, OH is a moot point. Which actually would be nice because in 2016, they would be more campaigning outside of OH.

If the public polling available is accurate (after you adjust their ridiculous turnout assumptions) then Romney is ahead by more. He needs to keep people motivated. IMO anyway.

Romney has had two goals all along. The primary one was to defeat Obama, but a secondary one has been to discredit the drive by media.

Romney has been playing chess while Obama has been playing pin the tail on the donkey.

Tomorrow, the nation is about to take a massive dump and flush Zero down the toilet bowl.

I don’t think there has been a candidate in history that hasn’t projected the upmost confidence on election eve! LOL

Karl Rove before that disastrous 2006 campaign comes to mind every time he predicts a win too. He was just a tad off the mark for that one. I reckon since that was a Congressional election, perhaps I should give him a little break...

"Hi there troll... McCain ran a crappy campaign unlike Romney. Also major polls had Obama in the lead.. Much different election.."

Someone speaking the truth hardly makes them a "troll". I know the truth can have a nasty nite to it sometimes, but we shouldn't be overly sensitive to it, to the point of speaking ill of fellow FReepers when they point it out....
