Posted on 09/26/2012 9:52:32 PM PDT by kingattax
TOLEDO, OhioMitt Romney projected confidence Wednesday that he's going to win Ohio, in spite of a recent spate of polls showing him trailing President Barack Obama in this crucial swing state.
"I'm going to win Ohio," Romney told NBC's Ron Allen in an interview. "I'm going to become the next president."
In a separate interview with ABC's David Muir, Romney downplayed several recent polls that suggest he's losing ground to Obama in Ohio and other battleground states. "Polls go up, polls go down," Romney told ABC. But, he added, he was "absolutely convinced" that people would support his campaign after watching his first debate with Obama, scheduled for next week.
Romney's comments came as he wrapped up a quick bus tour in Ohio with a rally at a convention center herevowing he will create new jobs and turn the economy around "when I become president."
Fueled by the cheers of more than 3,000 supporters, Romney repeatedly slammed Obama, linking him to increased gas priceswhich he claimed had doubled under Obama's watchand accusing the president of wanting to raise taxes on small businesses.
"He wants to raise the tax rates on them. That'll kill jobs," Romney said. "I'm gonna lower the tax rates. He wants to raise them. I'll create jobs. He'll kill 'em."

Romney nailing it. I did not think he had it in him. Now if he will just keep it up for the next 6 weeks!
God help us all, you better Mitt.
Considering the number of Holder’s people in the state ... good luck.
After watching Part 1 of The Project tonight on Blaze TV on Dish Network...Glenn Beck’s new channel...ummm...if we get that thing out and about and 2016 showing on a channel sometime in the next 3 weeks...Obama will be landslided.
The Project is about the scariest political documentary I have watched.
Election would be a landslide but for the Pravda media.
What is “ The Project?”
Ohio is 84% white.
Just me, but this is not smart. Actions speak louder than words.
Obama has a one- or two-point lead in each of the Key Three States in this years election, Ohio, Florida and Virginia. The president is also up by three in Wisconsin and up two in Nevada. Romney is now up two in Colorado and ahead by three in Iowa and New Hampshire. All these states remain Toss-Ups in the Rasmussen Reports Electoral College Projections.
All tossups go to Romney because it means Obama is polling under 50%, at least according to Dick Morris.
Then why is there any doubt that Romney will win? White guilt. Stupidity. What? Long term whites on welfare ... I just don’t understand.
Please, educate me. I’m dumbfounded.
That message was for us, too. Either he must have internal polling that said so or he’s throwing the gauntlet at Big Ears.
It could be internal polling but FR users here (LS, LdSentinal, Ravi) are tracking Ohio absentee ballot requests by county and party. I would suggest searching for their posts every day because the posts are hugely informative.
Bottom-line, absentee requests for Democrats are very much down compared to 2008 and those for Republicans are hugely up. Assuming Dems vote Dem and Reps vote Rep, the numbers are showing large voting intensity for Republicans and much diminished enthusiasm for Democrats, so far anyway. If this trend holds, and it’s showing also in North Carolina, polls showing democratic turnout like 2008 (D+7) will be garbage.
He’s down in polls that are oversampling Democrats
First, replace Reince Priebus with Mia Love!!!!!!!
We need more people like Mia Love, who has Haitian family roots, in the republican party.
Thanks for informative stuff, Freeper. :)
So the only thing you can post is some defeatist crap? Go away loser!
I have scene this post before, several times.
Please, at least change one or two words.
He could have said “ Inspite of the fact that the Media polls are heavily skewed in Obama’s favor and the likelihood of voter fraud in the swing states by the Democrat machine I do believe I will win in Ohio and this election “
White Liberal Democrat guilt solution to slavery is to keep them in slavery.
——he added, he was “absolutely convinced” that people would support his campaign after watching his first debate with Obama, scheduled for next week.-——
His confidence in his upcoming debate performance is good to hear. He has been making few campaign trail appearances because of debate prep. Good
The debate is the best chance to communicate without the liberal media filter.
“Then why is there any doubt that Romney will win? White guilt. Stupidity. What? Long term whites on welfare ... I just dont understand.”
The 47% comment was pretty much on point. People are going to vote for what they perceive as their own interests. If your interest is in drawing a check rather than producing, well then you’re going to vote accordingly.
This election is not going to be like 2008 which in my view was an anomaly. In 2008, large numbers of people who typically don’t bother to vote DID vote. I think overall turnout this time will be much lower and the election will be decided largely by the turnout of respective bases. That in a nutshell is going to be willard’s salvation and problem: enthusiasm amongst some on the gop side of the equation is very high primarily due to their intense opposition to hussein. However on the very conservative end of the political spectrum willard is not much liked.
It’s anyone’s guess as to how that salts out. My personal view is that quite a few who are not enthusiastic about willard on the very conservative side of the spectrum will ultimately decide to hold their noses and vote for willard. But there are others such as myself who will not. I’d speculate that it’s somewhere around a 70:30 split in willards favor. And that’s amongst the very conservative. The more centrist conservatives break very strongly for willard.
For what it’s worth I do think willard is being significantly under polled. With the exception of Rasmussen, I think the polls are off. It’ll be a close election and is nowhere near being in the bag for either candidate.
Gonna have to add you to the OH early voting list. NONE of the data we are seeing says anything except a convincing Romney win.
BTW I will be on Glenn Beck’s show on Tuesday with guest host David Barton.
He’s got it in him. Whether or not he would use it was the question. He had no problem using it during the primaries. I wasn’t a big fan but he was brutal, and could take big hits.
Based on this, Romney will win OH with some degree of comfort---again, keeping in mind that this is early and anything can change. But what we are seeing is across the board in all ounties, so we won't be blindsided by an outlier.
Hmm. Have you bothered to look at the actual absentee data so far? Even in the counties you mention-—which ALL showed big R victories in 2012 except Cuyahoga-—are showing dramatically large advantages for Rs right now and Ds are heavily under performing 08.
He has been looking at the absentee data that so far suggests Romney will win OH comfortably.
In their polling, they are using 2004 and 2008 voter turnout to get their %’s. If they used 2010, it would be different.
Obama said in Ohio, “I will create 1,000,000 manufacturing jobs in the next four years!” I thought WHY the hell didn’t you in the first four years as you promised four years ago?
Has a candidate of any party ever publicly announced that he was going to lose?
No Bias There! /sarc
Ohio is 84% white.
its not a color thing....it is a capitalism vs marxism thing.
I guess I should have said “serious candidate”!
Mitt will. Heard on my online radio from a woman in Ohio that there is a grassroots effort via the “Sean Hannity Show.”
Whether these outrages could have been discerned beforehand by a more objective vetting of man's murky past is indeed not worth exploring in detail at this point.
Rather, the demonstrable, ongoing, here-and-now collusion between the media and this administration to hide his many, many scandals is THE issue, because it strikes to the very core of the integrity of our political class right now.
They were showing how hyenas eat their prey even before its dead. You watch the poor beast struggle in vain as they pile on, and start ripping it apart from all directions.
I have the sense that the United States is such a beast in peril. You have the media, the sycophant class, the corrupt Chicago machine, and enemies around the world, all diving in for a meal, while the electorate debates whether it's worth struggling any more at all.
In the nature shows, the beast eventually gives up the ghost, and the hyenas get hungry again, seeking another beast on which to feast. It's what they are, they cannot do anything else.
Gotta' hand it to them, they are very good strait faced liars!
They are using the polls to explain why Romney has lost, Rasmussen is the young new kid on the block when CBSCNNNBC are tried and true!
They are VERY VERY worried!
This is both naive and dangerous. He needs to go for the kill and make them scatter. Otherwise they pile on, and will eat him up, pretty much the way they have been for months now.
