Romney's Political Director Predicts 'Big Win' on Tuesday

Rich Beeson RNC

Romney political director Rich Beeson predicted a “big win” for Mitt Romney on Election Day.

Dismissing President Obama's chances in several swing states, including states like Minnesota, Michigan and Pennsylvania, where the Romney campaign is attempting to make a new push with just days left, Beeson said the Obama campaign is struggling.

“This is the case all over the country: they are underperforming and we are overperforming,” he said on Fox News Sunday.

Sounding even more confident on Florida and Virginia, Beeson said Romney's map was expanding.

“Four years ago the president was campaigning in Indiana," he continued. "It looks like the map is starting to expand drastically in our favor.”

I, for one, am expecting quite a few MSM sphincter seat-clenches on election night. We might even be treated to some of them having to have their sphincters force-released from the seats by their compassionate union set workers assigned to that task.

I will enjoy the figurative taste of their sweet, sweet tears of disappointment as I uncontrollably revel in their despair.

Please, please let this be true!

Prayed in church today that the Lord allow this anti-Catholic tyrant to be sent away by the American people.

Our priest led a prayer at the end of Mass asking God to help instruct us to make a Christian decision. I think everyone in the congregation knew what this meant.

Go Romney!

I like seeing that map of Michigan behind him!

We are definitely a silent pick up. After seeing Detroit last summer, I can only assume that 4 years of no improvement, and some cold, will keep enough of those folks home so the rest of the state can swamp the totals easily.

Rich Beeson wouldn’t stick his neck out with such a bold prediction unless Romney’s internals were very good!

They must be a lot better than the MSM polling data. Good call!

I think the message in a lot of churches today will be subtle but definitely anti obama. That has to count for something.

Meanwhile, the polls, especially those which are messaged are worthless. To me the final Gallop will be the one to watch. Romney had the last one by 7 with no distinction between dems gop or indys. Frankly who cares how they are registered as look as they vote the way we want. If Gallop has Romney over 50 in the last poll, my guess is it is all over for the Kenyan, big time. If they are both under 50, it will be a nail biter with the edge going to Romney. I doubt there will be a change to His Excellency in the lead but if so it would defy all logic but as long as he is under 50, he loses.

Notice the media says it is close over and over. That’s the mantra. They always do that when Republicans are ahead. I was waiting to see if this Obama comeback would result in predictions of an Obama win. There are very few of those. We are in good shape.

Interesting. I saw your post and asked my wife who just came back from her local Catholic church if the priest said anything in reference to the election and she told me he did in reference to abortion and the economy. I wonder if this is being repeated in many other churches.

Ignore the polls, watch the action and the rhetoric.

Obama and Romney are both playing on mostly BLUE state turf. Romney is running the sort of campaign winning camps run, optimistic, hopeful, bland. Obama is running the sort of campaign losers run, nasty, desperate and shrill.

Obama is not acting like a candidate whose internal polling is showing him winning.

Nothing but crocodile tears. They will continue with their subversive agenda when they should be prosecuted for their complicity with the current fraud in the Whitehouse.

They’ll have a barrage of vicious attacks soon after Romney wins the election. Romney, Republicans, and Tea Party members will suddenly be under the microscope.

It’s no coincidence that Obama is having a rally with Bruce Springsteen in Madison, Wisconsin tomorrow. Clearly, he’s trying to rally the base.

Turnout will be interesting. In 2004, John Kerry and Springsteen drew 80,000 in Madison.

Campaign sources were claiming 20,000 for Katy Perry and Obama yesterday in Milwaukee, but according to the venue’s website, the maximum capacity for the room they played was a little more than 12,500. ...and that’s before setting up two stages, security perimeters and the like.

You bring up a critically important observation. Obama hasn't extended himself into Republican dominated territory. He's fallen back to defending Democrat dominated territory because Mitt has advanced his offensive and has him on the run.

In military terms, Obama is in a mad retreat. You can see it in everything his camp is doing and saying. They're going down, and they know it.

Please keep praying,

Never in my life have I seen anyone so adored by the lying and corrupt media, and come from nowhere, with nothing and go so far so fast,

this is evil spiritual activity at work right in front of us and we may all be surprised on election day if we don’t have help from God,,

I know we have a lot of folks on FR that are doing this daily, please keep praying and rebuking, no matter what the polls say, up or down,

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12

Our priest did the same thing for the vigil last night.

Told us that some would be upset with his words but he must tell us to examine our conscience before we vote.

Reminded us to look where the candidates stood on the issues of life and FReedom to express our religious liberty.

The only sad thing is that Obama will become a pariah of the left. They are going to treat him horribly after this loss.

The chance of Romney taking New York is considerably south of slim and none. I feel better about the election than I did a month ago, but I still put our chances of kicking out Obama at 50% or so.

Absolutely right---it's like when they discuss the economy. A bad jobs report is "mixed." A terrible jobs report is "slight decline."

Doctors are like that too: when a doctor says, "you may feel some discomfort, that means 'This will hurt like hell!'"

Maybe Bamsy will be relieved to be out of it. It has to have been super ugly and scary esp w Benghazi and that awful group of females. Imagine, Hillary, Susan Rice, V Jarrett, AND going home to Mooch(probably never sees her andyway)?

Then all the Arab bosses and then the military seeing him for what he is?

His hair has turned white.

There’s a split screen waiting to happen before & after.

Maybe he’ll be out of gas like a New Jersey Sandy victim.

Our pastor has held a series called "Truth, Lies and America Today". The final part is today...How to Vote for a President.

He started off with Moses, our American history and the 6 things to look for in a President. Other parts of the series have discussed abortion and how morality cannot be legislated.

Lets hope so for our country, families and friends. However:

If Obozo loses big time, he pardons all of his fellow criminals/traitors. Then, he would issues thousands of executive orders to weaken our country even more.

Then, Obozo will resign as president the day before Romney is sworn in: .

1. When he resigns, that makes Biden President after he is sworn in by John Roberts.
2. Then, President Biden will pardon Obozo and his cabinet members of all crimes/misdeeds like Ford pardoned Nixon. Biden will become the automatic pardon machine for rats in congress and in DC.

Obama hasn't extended himself into Republican dominated territory.

Let's be realistic. Obama has 358 electoral votes if he holds on to what won in 2008. The only state he had any chance of picking up was Missouri which McCain won by .13%. Why would Obama do anything but go to Missouri and the states he won by the lowest margin. Ditto Romney, why would he go anywhere but Missouri and the "easy states" he needs to win (NC, In, FL, Oh, Va, Co)? Romney wins if he gets these states. Obama wins one of these and he stays in....UNLESS: the next tier of battleground states, Ia, NH,Mn,Pa,Na,Wisc. The fight was always in these states, end of story. The fact that Obama didn't go into other republican won 2008 states means nothing.

I have two college age daughters (they do not go to UWM thankfully!), and I hesitate to see how Springsteen reaches many of the mind-numbed little darlings on campus. The hairy birky-wearing aging hippie crowd maybe, but he needs the students.

What Romney should do is election night announce his Department of Justice is opening an immediate investigation into the ambassador's death, campaign donations for gov't grants to green companies, etc. He should announce the investigation will go wherever it leads and name Obama, Biden, etc as targets of the investigation. He then says that he is taking the position that all named targets are considered possible co-conspirators and any pardons by, between, or for co-conspirators will be deemed null and void by his department of justice. Then he can dare the supremes to oppose him.

FF, none of those should be battle ground states, they should be safely blue. That is where you assumptions fail, you assume those should be battle grounds. No they should not. They should be safe Obama states.

Obama can win Oh and lose WI and Co and lose the election.
