Romney is ahead in all these national polls. He is moved into the lead in Florida and N. Carolina. He might be leading in Colorado. He is in a tie with Virginia and New Hampshire. Even Wisconsin is tightening.
Yet Ohio hasn’t moved an inch?
Something just isn’t adding up. Is Ohio like Nevada that the unions have put all their eggs into those two states?
The unions also put a lot of eggs in the Wisconsin basket and couldn’t get rid of Walker. I realize they have some power in Ohio and Nevada, but many of the “rank and file” have suffered under the regime. My brother-in-law in Nevada is a union member and gets several strong-arm calls a week. He, my sister and my nephew hate Obama and will vote accordingly. Because of Obamacare, his company now deducts $1000 from his paycheck a month for healthcare. Before Obamacare his deduction was $120.
Just some anecdotal information from VA as a poll observer at a VA in-person absentee satellite polling station in Fairfax County. Reps are matching the Dems in early voting, which is very unusual. The GOP level of enthusiasm and righteous anger is the most I have seen in the 33 years living here. All we have to do is break close to even in NoVA and we can win this thing by 2% to 3%.
I noticed that many Reps are bringing their 18 year old high school children to vote. The number of veterans is also considerable and the old and hobbled stream in to vote. As one old vet of Korea and Vietnam said, "I don't care if I die before election day, I voted to get this bastard out of the WH." And so did his wife. Inspiring stuff. People are realizing what is at stake in this election.
