Romney on the rise in Ohio
dispatch.com ^ | 12/13/12

Posted on 10/13/2012 10:58:56 AM PDT by Justaham

Maybe Vice President Joe Biden stopped the bleeding for the Obama campaign on Thursday, but he did little to stall the momentum Mitt Romney’s building in Ohio.

“I’ve 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? There’s a growing crescendo of enthusiasm,” Romney said. “People recognize that this is not an ordinary campaign, this is a critical time in the country. There’s 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.

Romney needs to immediately expand his strategy to focus on rallying Senate candidates. Now is the time to roll out the coattails.

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.

Bleeding? No. He gave a little adrenaline jolt to the dispirited pack of losers rooting for him. That's about it.

6 trillion $ in Obama debt says he won’t and neither will any of us have one.

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.

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.

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.

Cuyahoga Falls is not a suburb of Cleveland, it is a suburb of Akron, Ohio (Summit County)-—Way, way, way smaller than Cleveland

There, now your statement is correct.

The FL Senate race is now essentially tied, according to Rasmussen’s latest. With Romney coat-tails, Mack should win.
