30k+ Rally for Romney in Pennsylvania
Big Government ^ | November 4, 2012 | William Bigelow

Posted on 11/04/2012 4:46:16 PM PST by trappedincanuckistan

An enormous rally for Mitt Romney in Bucks County, PA had people incredulous and tweeting like fury:

@robertcostaNRO my mother is at the Bucks County Romney rally. Says she has never seen a crowd like this. Dwarfs the Bush '04 rally crowd at the same farm.

@robertcostaNRO "The rally doesn't even start for hours, but it feels like a Republican Woodstock." -- my mom, calling from Yardley, PA, a swing area.

@itabramg Traffic backup at Edgewood Shopping Cntr, 1.5 miles to Romney's rally at Shady Brook Farm, Yardley, PA #election2012

From Twitchy:

The rally isn’t scheduled to begin until 5:30 pm ET, but tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians have already descended on Bucks County, Pa., to show their support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The Pa. rally comes on the heels of a massive rally in Cleveland just hours ago.

How big is the crowd? No official figures yet, but some Twitter users say at least 25,000:

@klittleton1 At Romney Victory Rally in Yardley PA. More security here than #Benghazi at least 25k-30k #tcot

@fran chambers According to a source familiar with tonight's Romney event, 30,000 people are expected to attend.

I feel like I’m in the Twilight Zone. This kind of response to Romney around the country would make one think he’s the next President. But then Fox shows polls with Romney down 6 points in Ohio and a couple in Michigan.

I’ll just keep praying. I know that produces results.

Meanwhile, obama was in my town, Hollywood, FL today and he held his rally at a local high school football field. I guess it was the easy way to make it look as if a huge crowd showed up for him.

I think this is worthy of being placed in Breaking News. This size crowd for Romney in a Dem state and Dem county.

Ignore the polls!

I saw that tonight and Romney looks like a man who knows he’ll be President soon.

35,000 people don’t go out to see someone who’ll lose. Its human nature - people like to see a winner!

And there is O’s ever shrinking crowds. When you see the difference - there is no comparison.

Romney will win PA and he will win OH and he will become our 45th President.

The McCain campaign fell apart at the end and everything it did reeked of sheer desperation. It was out-generaled, out-gunned and out-fought.

What a difference four years makes!

A sign Obama hasn’t locked up PA.

If O needs to send Clinton there at the 11th hour, its not a good sign.

It all comes down to this. Pollsters are basing their numbers on turnout in 2008 where Democrats had a roughly 7% advantage. Do you see that kind of enthusiasm for Obama this time?

I look at early voting numbers. Democrat turnout down across the board.

I look at the polls’ internals and I see Republicans have an edge in enthusiasm and are much more likely to vote (Gallup is saying it will be a +3 Republican electorate). I also see Romney enjoying huge support among independents (Obama got a bump from Sandy, but today I see independents slowly swinging back to Romney).

I look at the crowds at campaign events. Tens of thousands of people standing out in the cold in swing or blue states to hear Romney.

I look at messaging. Obama has been attacking the Tea Party for two days in an effort to get his base out. If he’s still trying to get his base fired up this late he’s in trouble.

I look at where the battle is being fought. In swing states Obama carried last time or in blue states like Pennsylvania Obama should have locked up already.

Obama is mired in the mid to high forties. Big trouble for an incumbent.

The polls are either intentionally or unintentionally oversampling Democrats. That kind of turnout does not appear to be happening nor is it very likely to happen.

Have faith.

Hey there Bluebird...Hollywood gal here too. You know I think prezzy did get a good showing over there at that falling apart high school. But the joke was kind of on him. While his lawyers got the order to force the Broward SOE to open for in person absentee ballot voting for four hours, everyone who might have done it was stuck in traffic a fair distance away from downtown Ft Lauderdale. If by some chance they found a quick way out of the venue, there was no way they were going to avoid the detours and delays that were part of the Won’s departure at FLL.

Also just for grins, I am going to ask the Superintendent of schools who will pay to clean up the mess. He is a former res of Chicago but he did take on our unions so I am curious as to what he will say.

VERY VERY confused

The polls make me think Obama is going to win. There are a ton of editorials saying Romney will lose.

Yet - these crowds are big.

What is going on?

If America has been led to believe Obama will win and then he loses - there will be blood in the streets. Some will riot. Buildings will burn. Yada yada yada

Why are the polls so close? Obama can’t draw 1000 people and Romney can draw 40,000?

What is going on. All of the polls can’t be lying. So what gives.

The Dims better hope Slick doesn’t repeat his line in VA about the military being less “racist, sexist and homophobic” under Obama. That line has pissed off a lot of military voters in Hampton Roads and the DC suburbs.

And on a related note, the USS Enterprise returned to Naval Station Norfolk on Sunday night, along with 5,000 sailors. Many vote absentee in their home states, but several thousand are VA residents and will head to the polls on Tuesday. More bad news for Zero and Tim Kaine.

The poll numbers are based on a 2008 turnout model wherein Democrat turnout was 7% higher than Republican turnout. Based on early voting numbers (Democrat early voting is down across the board), the Republican enthusiasm gap showing them much more likely to vote and anecdotal evidence (the campaign is being fought on Obama’s turf etc.) I don’t believe their D+6/7 model. Do you based on what you see? Do you see enthusiasm for Obama?

Gallup is forecasting a Republican turnout advantage of 3%. Mitt Romney will win easily if that’s the case.

Gallup predicted a +3 GOP turnout on Tuesday today.

This is huge and is being ignored by the MSM.

All of t the polls predicting an Obama lead are based on something close to a +7% Dem model. This means a shift of over 10% in the model if Gallup is correct.

This means a Romney win, and a big one if it is true.

Notice that Obama is not polling over 50% almot anywhere where the battle will be won. I believe Romney is going to take all of those states...and events like this just underscore it.

I believe Dick Morris is going to be proven correct from the get go on this one and the pther pollsters, except for a few like Gallup and Rasmussen that have been tracking more towards Romney of late, will have egg on their face.

The are cooking the numbers by usiong a 2008 model that is not going to happen.

Just like the polls showed Reagan losing to Carter, but then winning handly, I believe (and pray) we are going to see a repeat of that.

So, in the spirit of II Chron 7:14, entreat God in Heaven, repent, fast and pray so that He will help us Heal our land, as He promises.

Let’s keep working HARD right to the finish line...push right on through! Then, on Tuesday, let’s all Fast, Pray, and VOTE for our Constitutional Republic and to STAND OBAMA DOWN! Please join our event to that end, doing so from our own homes or wherever you may be at:

It’s so silly to send Clinton.

Why doesn’t Obama go himself? 30K are not going to show up to see a guy that became president when the youngest voters weren’t even born.

It’s like sending Ford out to stump for Dole in 1996...come to think of it, this is starting to look like that.

Yes - I am now seeing the news outlets are all saying nearly 23,000 attended. I guess that’s not too surprising considering south Florida usually votes majority Democratic.

I am about a mile away from the high school, and I had the thrill (/s) of hearing his helicopter fly overhead, whisking him away to the airport afterwards. I also got to hear the ambulances heading towards the school and then to Memorial Hospital with the fainters who were waiting in line.

I agree! I just got back from the rally myself, I was in awe at how many people showed up, never seen anything like it.

Romney was confident, like he already knew that things are very different from the garbage the media is pushing. I think he knows that he is going to win.

The accounts I am reading from local news all say the same thing - nearly 23,000 and is probably the number coming from the obama campaign.

This story psychs me up for several reason...one being that I have tickets for Romney’s Victory Rally in New Hampshire tomorrow evening.From the sound of this story that rally is gonna be amazing.I suspect I’ll be hoarse from yelling and sore from waving a sign as I drive home.I think it’ll be more exciting than having seen W close up during the New Hampshire primary campaign in 2000.At that same event I met carney and spoke to him for about 5 minutes.Once Carney realized that I was a Republican he walked away showing me obvious contempt.What a putz he was...and still is.

Not positive (I’ve seen it cited in articles within the past couple of days), but I certainly do not expect anywhere near a D+6 electorate. Way too many signs point to it being much lower.

It is frustrating, but I am fairly confident that the Democrat turnout the polls are based on isn’t going to materialize. D+7 in 2008 was the biggest turnout advantage ever, and Republicans are way more energized and likely to vote. It may look more like 2010 (although that wasn’t a Presidential election I sense the same kind of energy).
