“Massive”/”Huge” Crowds for Romney-Ryan Rally in Daytona, Beach, Florida
Battleground Watch ^ | October 19, 2012 – 9:24 pm | Battleground Watch

Posted on 10/19/2012 6:53:46 PM PDT by SharpRightTurn

A consensus seems to be forming in the press about tonight’s crowd at the Romney-Ryan Rally in Daytona, Beach, Florida (no #s released yet):

Huge crowd for Romney and Ryan in Daytona Beach tonight

— (Washington Post) Felicia Sonmez (@feliciasonmez) October 20, 2012

Massive crowd for Romney and Ryan in Daytona Beach. twitter.com/shushwalshe/st…

— (ABC) Shushannah Walshe (@shushwalshe) October 20, 2012

And traveling press secretary Rick Gorka is doing some of my style of campaigning with a little trash talk:

Florida is Romney/Ryan country and it’s the next state Obama leaves. #romneyryan2012 instagr.am/p/Q_DH31sctr/

— Rick Gorka (@Rick_Gorka) October 20, 2012

// Even Romney himself is taking the cue:

Romney: “The Obama campaign has become the incredible shrinking campaign… They keep talking about smaller and smaller things.”

Thanks for posting that shot, Gasshog. It does indeed look like a huge crowd and Mittmentum.

A long, long time ago, I was in the local high school band and we put on concerts in this bandshell a couple of times a year. If you were sitting on one side of the stage, you could whisper to someone on the other side...and they would hear you very clearly. Spooky, but neat!

Florida is in the bag......................... It may look that way, hundreds of Romney signs, just a few Obama signs. Then again its the S/W coast, not Miami or Tampa, that we live in. The predominant area for Obama would be on the S/E side. I’m not a big Romney fan, LOL, but we have the Press to thank for putting him there. I hope he wins, they deserve it.

Taylor said he voted for Barack Obama in 2008, but he lost his job about three years ago and has been out of work since then.

"The last four years have been no change, and the hope has gone out the window," he said.

Great statement that really sums it all up!

Look at these crowds! I recall in 2008 the only way OblameA could get a crowd like that was to have Springsteen play beforehand.

Saw the “Blahs” at a campaign stop with Obozo in Oh or MI the other day and it as pretty lackluster.

It is totally false that the “press” put Romney where he is. He kicked ass and took names in the primaries and won on his own accord with the best organized campaign. Of course, he did not have any real opposition.

There are so many signs, other than polls, that Romney and Ryan are surging and very confident right now. You see the campaign rallies and enthusiasm for R&R that we saw in 2008 for Obama.

Stories are starting to come out about what Romney will focus on as president. And who would be in his cabinet. Tells me that it looks pretty strongly R&R are going to win this.

The signs I saw in 2008 that pointed (unfortunately) to an Obama win, now point to a Romney win. And in the end, I don’t think it will be really close.

If Romney is going to win, he needs to stop doing events in FL and VA and spend all of his time in CO, WI, OH, IA, and NH. And maybe PA. But get out of the South. Romney absolutely must get the RCP average of polls (very accurate, go back and look at 2004 and 2008) down to Obama +2 or less on election day to have a chance in any one state. He needs to figure out how to move WI or OH a couple of points.

I refuse to believe that otherwise Republican voters are backing Obama in Ohio simply because of the GM bailout, but it sure seems like the polls are telling me I’m wrong.

I sure hope you’re right, and I do realize state polls lag national polls, but the Midwestern states are being very, very stubborn. It seems FL, VA, and NC have come back to the fold, and one would think that Romney would be leading by 4 or 5 in Ohio if he’s up by 3 in Virginia, but the polls aren’t showing that. I would sure like someone to spend some time and explain to me what is going on in Ohio.
