Mitt Romney still earns 50% support in Virginia just before Election Day.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Virginia Voters shows Romney with 50% of the vote to President Obama’s 48%. One percent (1%) likes another candidate, and another one percent (1%) is undecided.

The Indies seem to be watching the Sandy debacle closer than people thought.. They didn’t have the attention span to follow Benghazi, but once Staten Island turned into the 9th ward, Indies started breaking to Romney in every poll.

I think the national numbers are 49/48.

50/48 is VA only.

But I could be wrong.

If PA & OH are called for Romney right after the polls close, I’ll pop the corks.

52-47-1 - Romney is going to pick up two to three points in Virginia and nation-wide relative to the final number as polls traditionally understate Republican strength.

Last night’s rockin’ Romney Rally in Newport News was great! Hard to tell how many were packed in and outside of the Smithfield hangar at Newport News-Williamsburg Airport, but officials were expecting more than 5,000. I’m quite sure that number was well-surpassed in temps dipping into the 30s.

Got in the gate at about 6 p.m. and took my place about 30 ft. off the left side of the podium. Gov. Romney’s plane, due in NN at 8 p.m. was delayed leaving Philly for about 90 minutes, but the RR folks provided pizza and bottled water, and we had giant-screen views of the Steeler-NYG game, interspersed with Romney ads over commercial breaks.

Va. Sen. Tommy Norment opened the evening with remarks, followed by Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling and former (and hopefully future) Sen. George Allen. From the speakers to the crowd, everyone’s level of energy was ramped WAYYYYY up!

Mitt’s plane touched down at NN-W IAP at about 9:25. Va. Gov. Bob McDonnell revved the gathering up further with about five minutes of remarks before introducing Gov. Romney. Though very tired from a long day of campaigning, Mitt strode up the ramp, brimming with confidence, and rolled out an energetic speech, drawing the familiar stark comparisons between himself and Obama. The crowd responded wildly with every main point.

A fireworks show out near the flightline punctuated the end of a great evening.

As far as Virginia is concerned, the energy is there, folks. We’re going to win here, so long as we get the turnout we know we can muster.

I’ll follow up with pics later today in a vanity post.

Virginia is the third block, along with Florida and NC in the “3” part of the “3-2-1” strategy for Romney. He has Indiana in the bag as half of the “2” key states in the Midwest that went for Obama in ‘08. If Ohio, the other state that fell for Obama in ‘08, falls to Romney, he is elected the 45th POTUS when he carries any additional swing state. I believe it will be Wisconsin followed by others.

Rasmussen has McCaskill up by 8 in MO. I don’t believe she has that huge of a lead

My prediction is that OH goes gray for days due to shenanigans but it will not matter in the e.v. due to the coming MittWave. The extensive rat planning will be for nought and they will still have to pay the 1000 lawyers. Write it down.

I heard (for the first time ever) one pollster saying that the biggest problem this election was the number of people refusing to participate. (>5% in many polls)

When polls were created everyone had a landline phone and they always answered

Now a high percentage have ONLY a cell phone and many people screen their calls to the answering machine

I know when pollsters call me I have told them not I didnt want to participate.

I think these non-participaters are goign to be for Romney more likely than not.
