CELINA, Ohio As a newly released poll shows a dead heat between President Obama and Mitt Romney in this critical battleground state, the GOP ticket is barnstorming Ohio on Sunday and saying they feel surging momentum in the closing days of the campaign.
"I'm heartened by what we're seeing across the country large crowds of independents, some Democrats, a lot of Republicans, coming together and enthusiastically getting behind this campaign, Romney told thousands of cheering supporters in a basketball field house here. And they know what's at stake. They know this is a big election about big things; they recognize that we face enormous challenges as a nation and we also have huge opportunities, and they want to us grab a hold of these opportunities and finally confront the challenges.
Romney was originally scheduled to campaign in Virginia on Sunday but canceled his events there because the state is preparing for Hurricane Sandy. Romney joined running mate Paul Ryan on an Ohio bus tour.

The Ohio/EV narrative is all the leftwing media has left. They know Obama, at 46-47 (46.8 in RCP to be exact), in every national poll is a sure loser in the national vote.
No incumbent has ever polled this low with a week out and gone on to win.
I’m thinkin’ they should really concentrate on Franklin County (Columbus). Gotta be a lot of indies and buyers-remorse Dems there, and it’s a big bunch of votes.
R&R might as well stay clear of the storm-track states, and hunker down in OH/MI/WI (and perhaps west to IA & CO) for the duration.
They can maintain moral support for those affected, and can’t do much about Obama’s incumbency aid (actual & media-hyped) anyway...
Bam is gonna unleash the power of the oriface to send massive amounts of fed. assistance to those affected by Franken-Fake, isn’t he? Then he can bask in the glory and act like a hero.
Gonna be nauseating.
