DAYTON, Ohio Amid a flurry of recent polls showing Mitt Romney badly trailing in key swing states especially in Ohio a campaign adviser told reporters Tuesday that the race there is much closer than public polling suggests.
Asked about a new Washington Post poll showing Romney down eight points in Ohio, political director Rich Beeson said their internal polls are telling a different story.
"The public polls are what the public polls are," Beeson said. "I kind of hope the Obama campaign is basing their campaign decisions on the public polls... I have great faith in our data."
Beeson declined to elaborate on how their polls differed from those of media outlets, but he said, "We are, by any stretch, inside the margin of error in Ohio."
He added that Obama campaign manager Jim Messina is "sort of spiking the ball at the 30-yard line" when it comes to winning Ohio.
The tough talk is no doubt an effort to project confidence on the eve of an aggressive bus tour in the Buckeye State, and calm the nerves of donors, activists, and Republican establishment types who see Romney's path to 270 electoral votes becoming increasingly narrow as victory in Ohio fades from likelihood.

What I will never understand is how people can put so much faith in the public polling. We all know a poll can be manipulated to give desired results. Just talk to those around you and see what they are saying! Go to a local GOP office and see what’s going on. Read what’s going on here. I’m not saying it’s a shoe-in, we need people to vote, but it’s far from over.
Sounds like he’s stills saying Romney is losing. It makes me sick. Really.
And forget the debates, all we’ll hear is how Obama won or if Romney totally slaughters zerO the most we’ll get from the media is “it was a tie and won’t change minds.”
Get ready for it.
Every strategy Obama and his media have tried so far has failed badly (Bain Capital, Romney tax returns, etc...). All what they are left now with is this desperate strategy of creating very biased polls in an attempt to demoralize us... They are going to fail badly on this one as well... Our side is going to vote in numbers that we have not seen before to defeat this communist Obama...
Where did he say that Romney is losing?
Well I guess it’s my assumption when I hear “we are in the margin of error.”
