Romney shouldn’t spend in PA - yet - but the Super Pacs should. Saturate both Philly and Pittsburgh markets, move the needle, and force Obama to react on the air.
Obama cannot keep up if we spread the map and saturate Blue markets.
DRAIN OBAMA DRY NOW. They cannot admit to the MSM there will be movement against them in blue states, so they cannot overtly raise a lot of money.
The only problem is that the pro-Romney PACS may not have enough money to throw around. They should, and any wealthy conservatives that haven’t written 7-figure checks should be ashamed. They are consigning their children and grandchildren to debt, despair, and darkness for the remainder of their lives.
Wow. I wonder how accurate this is. Rasmussen just released a poll with Obama up 51-39 in Pennsylvania.
Remember the 2010 elections? Rats are trying to make us forget they were destroyed last time out. And things are worse now.
Yesterday Rasmussen said Pennsylvania was Obama by 14 points.
Somebody is not working sober.
See, this is what is so frustrating about these polls. We just had a PA poll from RASMUSSEN-—who should be reliable-—showing a big Obama lead in PA. Now this. WTF?
Don’t waste time or money in Pennsylvania.
Ras has been battered by Axelrod and Nate " Daily Koz " Silver and I think he has buckled to their pressure .
He changed his national poll from +1 Rep to +2 Dem for no reason and did it quietly.
I suspect his state polling has been pressured to use the 2008 exit polling data too.
This is very confusing. I saw a Rasmussen poll a few days ago which shows Obama up 51 to 39 in Pennsylvania. These polls are driving me nuts. Just everyone go out and vote, that is the most important thing we can all do
Unskewedpolls.com says differently. Romney up 7.8%
Man, I would really like to see a string of ads featuring the people Romney has helped over the years. The oness at the convention and the ones on Beck had me in tears at times and they could just be compressed into an ad. If you can make someone cry with a political ad you’ve got them, especially given the narrative that Mitt doesn’t care about the poor.
Does anyone know if any of the outside groups are planning something like this ? I know Romney won’t do it himself as he does this stuff in secret for a reason. If one of the outside groups comes up with ads like that they’ve got my money.
And in 2010 the press was saying the GOP was in trouble and might not survive. But then the press is largely made up of ignorant jackass suck-ups.
I think they would do just fine working Ohio and taking the market spillover into Western PA. I would do a hard, heavy, energy independence, pro coal ad.
The MC for the Emmys just asked the audience if any of them were voting for Romney. About half the audience started clapping. I almost fell out of my chair. We were just channel serving and stopped to hear the answer. It was amazing to hear!
I don’t know this poll, the Trib definitely is the right leaning paper in the pittsburgh area, but this poll certainly reflects what I am empirically seeing in my daily conversations with people.
The very idea that Obama has support in PA anywhere near his 2008 level is LAUGHABLE. Any poll showing Obama up 10 or anything like it in PA is fundamentally flawed.
PA is within striking distance if it is fought for, not saying the Romney/Ryan camp will fight for it, but it is winnable if they do. The idea that OHIO is in play or IA is just as laughable.
Obama will not carry a single state he didn’t get at least 55% of the popular vote in 2008 period.
I work this campaign twice a week and it seems that we are indeed poll takers for the most part. The phone system here in FL is impressive. The dialing is automatic, responses are keyed into the phone and two pushed buttons leave a message and free you up the instant you hear the first words from an answering machine. If you put your head down and just work, you can easily make 200 calls an hour.
Every call that is registered as a wrong number or a disconnect along with other unknown phone number addresses is fed into a different system that generates “door knocking” lists. We are sent out with scripts and bubble result pages that are scanned once we return to the office. Of course we go out with a bunch of literature for unanswered doors andhand outs and we say a few kind words to try to convince and undecideds we meet. But by and large I have been a poll taker giving Gov Romney his “internal poll”.
Given that the Romney office is 15 miles away the nearest obot office is 5 minutes, mischief has most certainly been on my mind. But I am not sure I could stand the smell in such close confines.
I live in PA and I can tell you ANY POLL and I don’ care who is giving it that shows OBAMA with a lead in PA ANYWHERE near what he had in 2008 is flat out wrong.. why its wrong, I couldn’t say but his support is GONE evaporated...
If Romney doesn’t fight for PA Obama will likely win with a 2-5% margin at best. ANY Poll showing him up 10 points or anything close to 2008 here is laughably off base.
Obama will not win any state he did not carry 55% of the popular vote in, in 2008.
PA is very much a battleground IF they republicans decide to fight for it, so far it doesn’t seem like by media buys that Romney/Ryan are buying here, and that could be nothing more than strategic decisions, but believe me, Obama up 10 in PA is not remotely accurate.
When you’re done puking don’t forget to vote and FIRE Obama.
