Skip to comments.Rove: Battleground State Polls Will Move Toward Romney

The lead that Gov. Mitt Romney has carried in national polls since the first presidential debate should be reflected oon in state-by-state polls indicating a potential Romney victory on election day, Karl Rove said on Fox News Sunday.
Rove added that as the state polls reflect the national mood, Romney may begin to see states such as Minnesota, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, come into play for his electoral vote count.
If the margin is as big nationally as it appears in these national polls, then you will have the state polls follow, he said. Now we may have something else at play here, though, which is, we're endowing all of these polls with the precision they don't have... These states have been states that have moved from Obama to lean Obama. If there is a national trend, as it appears to be since the first debate, moving in Romney's direction there might be [changing].
As an example, Rove said he thought that Ohio polls could be off because of wide leads among both Republicans and independents in that state. With leads in those groups, he said it was hard to believe that Romney wont win the state.
Rove told show host Chris Wallace that Democrats have had 109,000 fewer requests for absentee ballots than in 2008. Republicans, on the other hand, have already requested 4,000 more and the deadline to request them is not until Monday, Nov. 3.
Among absentee ballot requests by voters, he said that 72 percent of Republican requests have come from people who voted in zero, one or two of the last three elections, compared with only 57 percent of the same group for Democrats...

Rove knows polling data as well as anybody out there.
His comments make sense to me.
Just need one more push this week so we can get a convincing win, and send the Kenyan home for good.
I also watched a video with Governor Kasich from Ohio who said that their internals were showing Romney ahead in the polls.
I doubt he’ll go away. Imagine Jimmy Carter, Al Gore and Bill Clinton rolled into one.
Another point that Kasich made was that while he thinks it’s close, “it’s not going to be that close like everybody was saying” and that we might know who won earlier in the night. Sort of cryptic? maybe their internals are not even close and they have pulled ahead comfortably? blow out?
Actually don’t think Rove has any idea what is going to happen here... He an antique of the Republican Party (read Beltway) and has no idea about the revolution overcoming him and his folks.
I think that this will be a blowout for Romney! Finally the people have realized what a horrible President we have and will vote accordingly...without all the hype about black and racial prejudice. It will be a major!
The good thing is that America just might survive this President, thank goodness! Then we will have the time to become a Republic again thanks to the Tea Party folk!
Our FReepers inside the campaign say Mitt will win by 5-10% there.
YAY! This Obama nightmare is almost over.
He has no understanding of the grassroots and how big a win this is going to be.
Romney could get a larger majority than rove/bush ever got.
You mean freepers who work for the campaign and are privy to internal polling?
