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."

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?
