Schedules indicate where the real battles remain. Romney is not going back to FL (perhaps Ryan is). Romney is focusing on NH, OH, IA, CO, VA and PA. Obama is going to OH, WI, IA, VA, NH, FL and CO. Not sure why his Monday schedule is empty, currently.

Obama’s schedule indicates the time pressures have gotten to him.

Its all about the base now.

Romney is visiting PA - I don’t think that’s a head fake, its a victory lap visit.

FL appears to be safe for Romney. We can safely say Williard Mitt Romney will be soon be our 45th President.

We have been mightily impressed by the stamina of the Romney-Ryan campaign, and seeing that they are scheduling till the last hour on Monday is excellent.

It isn’t like McCain, who basically gave up after suspending the campaign for the banking crisis. Sarah has blown the whistle on that bunch of losers.

Continue to pray, warriors!!

If O needs to go again Monday to WI - its not locked up.

You mean it isn’t already locked up? Too little, too late. I’m calling WI now for Romney!

I agree with you!!! Obama has become unstable. His campaign rallies are listless and very lightly attended, The Libya murders are beginning to take a toll, and.....Obama now owns his very own “Katrina”!!!

Having said the above, please, please, please folks get out and vote for Romney/Ryan. We need every single vote we can get. Leave no stone unturned, for......we are not only electing Romney/Ryan and getting rid of unAmerican Obama and his ilk, but......we are keeping America free for generations of Americans yet to come. We, the people must end this “Obama” nightmare, now...on election day, November 6, 2012!!! Get on it!!! ABO = Anybody but Obama, the Tyrant!!!

I wish they were right, but I think that there is a strange logic in these predictions that Mitt will carry PA and other blue states: The polls say that Mitt is behind in Ohio, but they must be underestimating him if he is to win the election. But if he wins in Ohio, he must have been underestimated across the board, so he will take PA, Wisconsin and run away with the election. I hope that is not all based on wishful thinking.

If you’ve the pictures of his base, they look like they want to be there.

I see NO evidence the Obamaites are enthusiastic about their guy. He isn’t feeling the love.

There are more people who want to get rid him than there are people who want to keep him. The batch of polls out on Friday are way off!

Scott Rasmussen is an idiot if he can’t it see in the ground game. The contrast is stunning! One campaign is confident and aggressive and one looks small and defensive.

No way on is it going to be a close election! The polls don’t capture the enormous GOP enthusiasm because they have been using the wrong turnout model for weeks now and when you use the wrong turnout model, its garbage in and garbage out. The data sucks as does pollsters’ interpretation of it!

In Madison? If Obama needs to shore up Madison, that is very, very good news for the Republicans.

“Where is Biden going?”

Biden has an uncanny ability to visit several states with a single stop, so only he knows where he'll be.

I sure hope Ryan is going to WI on one of those days, as Romney isn’t. Obama is. I’m assuming Ryan will be going. I’d like to see the itinerary of Ryan (as well as Biden). Of course, all of the Pub surrogates are fanning out all over the place too. The show is on the road.

Sorry, I meant - “if you’ve seen the pictures of his base, they look like they DON’T want to be there.”

The President and his supporters look glum, surly, angry and depressed. They aren’t smiling and wish they were somewhere else.

Does that look like people you want to be around for another four years?

Look at us - we’re happy, upbeat, full of love and confident! We are the people every one want wants to be around and it shows up in Romney’s demeanor, body language and natural optimism.

You know human nature - people want to be with and vote for someone who makes them feel good about themselves. O doesn’t project that out to Americans - he’s given them NO reason to re-elect him. Romney has told Americans they can take pride in their country and elect a President worthy of them and their vote.

That is the entire story of the 2012 Election - and its one for the history books!

Ryan Schedule: Today: OH, PA, VA, FL. Tomorrow: OH, MN, CO. Monday: NV, CO, IA, WI, OH. Very busy!

None of these stops surprise me except Obama going to Florida; from what I read, its near-safe for Romney. I am surprised Romney is not going to Wisconsin, maybe he’s leaving it up to Ryan to pull him through. Interesting that both Romney and Obama will be in Dubuque, IA on Saturday. More emphasis by both camps on IA and NH than I expected.

Without a doubt, their focus groups tell the campaign which of the 2 plays better to each individual state. Clearly, based on his schedule, Ryan resonates with OH very well.

Paul Ryan is a native WI son and he is very popular there.

Without him, I would say WI would go to Obama but Romney appears to have it in his columns because Cheeeseheads love Ryan!

I agree. People radiate what’s in their hearts and minds, no matter how much they try to conceal it. Obama purely radiates how much he hates America and Americans. You can almost see the snarl even when he thinks he’s being oh so smooth.

Mitt Romney radiates just the opposite.

And Robert Gibbs said yesterday Romney was making an 11th hour “desperation” visit to PA.

If the Democrats really have the Keystone State locked up, why schedule 3 Clinton visits there?

Sounds to me one side is chasing after votes at the last minute in PA!

I’ll be happy even if we’re wrong and we lose it.

Let’s say the Obamaites and their media amen chorus - Intrade and the prediction markets are right.

They’re going to have a second term from hell. And they would richly deserve it!

Max would be 350 Low side would be 295 and I think that 315 is around the middle.

I think now that is where it’ll be at. Few will disagree with Michael Barone. I think he can see what the closing days are showing us.

He's still looking for that one guy in Madison who is thinking of voting for Romney and hoping the rest show up to cheer him on.

Republicans have a turnout lead in Early Voting in every single Nevada county except Clark (Las Vegas) as of Friday morning with almost 50% of active voters turning out.

Yes, even Washoe.

We’ll see the final Early Voting totals in a few hours, but keep in mind only a few hundred votes were the difference in Washoe so far.

Ryan will be here Monday. I assume Biden will be in Las Vegas.

-- In Madison? If Obama needs to shore up Madison ... --

I don't think it's as much "shoring up" as it is visiting "friendly" venues where he can get larger attendance numbers. The choice is made in order to create a false impression of the national enthusiasm for a second Obama term. The press will take the large turnout and present it as a broad base of strong support.

IOW, Madison is easily "in the bag" for Obama, and will turn out in droves.

In my state - I notice O has only one stop schedule - DEN on Sunday - which means he’s written it off!

Today Romney makes two stops here Englewood and the GOP bastion of COS.

I just don’t think the Obama lemmings in Madison are all that excited about him.

The Democrats and the unions took a beating when Walker won re-election.

Turnout in Madison will be way down Tuesday over 2008.

Romney’s schedule indicates to me that he believes he 1)has Florida won; 2) has a lead sufficient to win Va., but not large enough to be assured; 3)he’s unsure if he has the final 22 electoral votes necessary to win so he is moving around to find those votes in some combination of (in order of probability) Ohio, Colorado,NH, Iowa, Pa, with the hope that Ryan can do something to win Wisconsin.

I agree. VA is a difficult for Republicans to win because the demographics in NOVA have changed.

My view is he’ll win VA, OH, CO, NH, IA, PA and with favorite son Paul Ryan, he has a good shot of picking up WI. And he also thinks NV is still winnable but it’ll be tough due to the Clark County casino unions and the Hispanic vote. MN is a head feint - its not going to be done this year.

But I think the rest of it as Michael Barone said Friday, this is what we should expect to see happening on Tuesday night.

Anecdotal news you can use from `America’s Hometown’:
http://www.thestarpress.com/article/20121103/NEWS01/311030002/Muncie-Obama-vote?odyssey=tab%7Ctopnews%7Ctext%7C&nclick_check=1

MUNCIE — Four years ago, Juanita Bragg couldn’t drive down her block in the city’s Whiteley neighborhood without seeing a yard sign supporting Barack Obama for president.

These days, the two signs in her yard are the only ones she sees on her block, a clear sign to her that the president - who received 95 percent of the African-American vote in 2008 - won’t get the same level of support from the group this year.

Three more days.
