Maybe Vice President Joe Biden stopped the bleeding for the Obama campaign on Thursday, but he did little to stall the momentum Mitt Romneys building in Ohio.
Ive had the fun of going back and forth across Ohio, and this week, I was also in Florida and Iowa, ... in North Carolina and Virginia, Romney told 8,500 people packed into the Lancaster Town Square last night for a rally featuring him and running mate Paul Ryan.
Ryan debated Biden on Thursday night in Kentucky in their lone duel of the campaign; afterward, both sides were claiming victory.
You know what? Theres a growing crescendo of enthusiasm, Romney said. People recognize that this is not an ordinary campaign, this is a critical time in the country. Theres more energy and passion. People are getting behind this campaign.
Romney was previously greeted by huge crowds in Cuyahoga Falls on Tuesday night (12,000 people) and in Sidney, Ohio, on Wednesday night (9,000), and both he and Ryan have campaign stops scheduled in the state today. Ryan also added a noon rally in Cincinnati on Monday.

Anyone else believe Biden stopped the bleeding?
I was reviewing the last month's Rasmussen Senate polls, and it is a disaster. The entire GOP Senate campaign has totally collapsed.
I will be putting out a complete analysis later this weekend, but we're in worst-case scenario now and need an immediate turnaround strategy, or Romney will NOT have a united Congress to support him.
If a Republican presidential candidate (Mitt Romney) can draw a crowd of 12,000 in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, a small suburb of Cleveland, while his Democratic opponent (Barack Obama) can draw a crowd of only 9,000 in Democratically dominated Cleveland itself, something seriously bad is happening to the Democrats in Ohio.
I think Biden's performance excited those who were already firmly committed to Obama (they think "he really took it to Ryan.") However, I don't see any way his disgraceful behavior won over anyone who was undecided. If anything, it pushed the undecideds further towards Romney.
Not bad enough...9000 morons.
would you ping me to your senate analysis when you post it? Thanks.
6 trillion $ in Obama debt says he won’t and neither will any of us have one.
6 trillion $ in Obama debt says he wont and neither will any of us have a future.
But I hope also that this will be true and that Romney wins so we have a chance to fight at least.
Don’t stress it too much.
The Senate polls from a month ago are pretty worthless. The more recent numbers are far more encouraging, and I look for that trend to continue unless Romney completely falls apart in the next debate.
“Anyone else believe Biden stopped the bleeding?”
Not here. I think the Obummerites were just hoping Bite-me’s performance would not be as disastrous as Nobama’s was. They may have gotten that, but that ain’t saying much.
Romney is right down the road in Lebanon, OH today. Should be a great rally!
I would not say collapsed.
We should be picking up 6 or 7 but will likely get 3 or 4. With a Romney win, 3 is enough.
We should hold NV, MA and IN (although we could lose all 3)
We should pick up NB, ND, and MT. We will lose ME.
Dead heats are WI, OH, VA.
Still it is disappointing that the result is in doubt.
We might get CT, PA, HA. MO.
Worst case scenario is we lose 4 seats. Best case is we pick up 9. I’m betting on we gain 4.
First Snowe dropped out which was a sure win and is now a sure loss. Next was the Akin disaster which turned a sure win into a likely loss. Nest was Lugar losing in the primary which turned a sure win into a squeak by win. Next is the Mack LeMieux primary in FL that turned a dead heat general into a likely loss.
MA?? you think Romney’s going to win Assachussettes??
