SIDNEY, Ohio (AP) -- The crowds tell the story. As Election Day nears, Mitt Romney is drawing large and excited throngs.
Look to dusty Iowa cornfields, rain-soaked Virginia parks, the muddy fields of the Shelby County Fairgrounds, where a crowd of 9,500 - almost half of this western Ohio town - gathered among the barns and stables on a frigid October evening this week to glimpse the Republican presidential contender.
"Where else would we want to be?" said one of the shivering faithful, Judy Cartwright, a 71-year-old nurse from Sidney. "I want to see the next president of the United States."

It had to pain the Administration Press to put this story out.
Dem response - “All racist white people.”
we just got back from the Romney/Ryan Rally in Lancaster, Ohio ! Lots of people! Fantastic Rally!
Methinks AP was really saying "Yeah, Mitt is drawing a few more people, but our guy is still out-drawing him!!"
There is a difference between getting thousands of college students who have all kinds of time on their hands and getting thousands of hardworking adults.
I think they always “overestimate” Hussein’s crowds.
The your dad is big but my dad is bigger syndrome. We have a Republican campaign headquarters in suburbs of Houston. Lots and lots of Romney/Ryan yard signs going out the door in the last two days. Also Ted Cruz yard signs but none for anyone else. Preponderance of people getting signs this week is Hispanic and several RLDS church members. We have been open since mid-September and in spite of being located next door to a Black Christian church, have had only one Black person stop thus far. He wants BO to be relected because BO is going to get him a job. He doesn’t have one now because he just got out of prison.
Many of the RLDS ladies are Preppers and most said they had at least six months of food and water in their stash, just in case Romney is not successful.
Interest is picking up in our part of Texas.
Yep.......Romney/Ryan crowds surging!!! After last night’s VP debate, today in Virginia & Ohio, Romney/Ryan turned out over 30,000 wildly cheering folks and supporters. By contrast, Joe Biden doing a supposed victory lap celebration turned a massive crowd of 2000 college students, hippies, union thugs and has beens in wisconsin this evening!!! What a guy that Joe Biden is!!!! So....now who won that debate last night!!! The people, the ones that count, have spoken!!!
might need a four year or more stash if obama is not shown the door.
Mitt is a bit on the geeky side which makes it hard for him to look like he cares to the “down and outers.” Barack’s supposed compassion is all rob-peter-to-pay-paul, and when peter is the one who traditionally offers most of the jobs, that is a recipe for everyone’s employment disaster, not just down and outers’.

I had to look twice at that byline. Some subversive must have snuck it in when the bosses weren’t looking.
In last election cycle tbe media had the thousands of obamaites in our faces.
Evidently, The Won mostly appears before college crowds. Still guaranteed to produce cheers and squeals in profusion...but no fainting spells anymore.
Adult audiences seem sparse...and subdued. Not good for The Won's ego
Hopefully, the MSM pimps agenda to turn off conservative voters will not work.
